Thank you team for hosting and organizing the smooth logistics of this workshop!🙏🏼 It’s been a pleasure shooting with all of you. I am keen to see how much we all develop as photographers. Keep it touch! ✌🏼 –Brandon Leo

 I have, to date, attended three workshops which were organised by Vineet and Rohit Vohra in several Indian cities including New Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Varanasi. The organisation, attention to detail and the practicalities of undertaking photography has without exception been first class. Vineet and Rohit both have intimate knowledge and understanding of the most appropriate locations and timings needed to capture exciting imagery. Above all their approach is one of guidance and support including the technical aspects of photography, selection of images and importantly, praise and encouragement. I can honestly say I have improved immeasurably as a photographer and benefitted from being part of a group of like minded individuals. I have already booked for Maha Kumbh in 2025 and would not hesitate in recommending their workshops”Steven Bonati

“Taking a workshop with Vineet and Rohit is a transformative experience. The one to one instruction is unlimited and the attention to detail unparalleled. The ability to learn and grow as a photographer in an encouraging environment alongside others who share the same goals is not easily found elsewhere. I have built a community of friends while also learning to be a better photographer. I highly recommend both Rohit and Vineet for taking photography to the next level.” Stephaine Duprie Routh

First of all, Thank you very much for having me joined this wonderful event as it was my first time attended photography workshop. Great people, great places and of course great masters you guys are, Vineet, Rohit and Rammy. I had learnt a lot about how to approach the scenes, how to framing what I am interested and how to create my own voices which I am just let it grow on me. It would be very nice for me to have a few more chances to walk around with you guys in the future! I will keep me eyes for the further workshop from APF that might happen around. I really appreciate what the workshop gave me.  Norathep Naritoom

Attending the Bangkok workshop with Vineet , Rohit and Rammy – three very different mentors – was an incredible experience! Each mentor brought a unique perspective and expertise to the table, allowing me to see their different techniques and perspectives and humour! Overall, the workshop was a very enriching experience and a huge amount fun due to the amazing participants. I would highly recommend learning from multiple mentors to gain a diverse range of knowledge and inspiration. –Mariana Zilbershteyn

“I appreciated how Vineet and Rohit structured the workshop so everyone could see an improvement in their work. Their lectures and feedback were clear, insightful and very helpful. I felt a considerable improvement in my photography in a short period of time. Thanks!” Faisal Fazalbhoy

“Vohra bothers are the ultimate artists of street photography. Their dedication towards this art and their sincere efforts to prepare us for street photography is indeed commendable. The sincerity they show and effort they put to educate us will only be returned with gratitude if we put our hundred percent effort and sincerity with determination to learn all they teach and practise how they advise us. Singapore workshop has been the most interesting session among all the sessions I have attended so far. Thank you VV and RV for coming to Singapore.
As William Arthur Ward said, “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires”. Vineet Vohra and Rohit Vohra, you inspire us everyday. Keep up the great work.”  Mithu Chakraborty

“I’m glad that i managed to join this workshop and learnt a lot from you both. Your sharing and critique were excellent and rich in contents. Nothing sugar coated but straight to the points. Powerful technicality and skills aside, i love your kind reminders about shooting for ourselves not for ‘likes’, having fun and enjoying the process as the core of street photography. I have got so much to take away from the workshop but keeping the gratitude towards all of you – Vohra and workshop fellows! Thank you!” Kai Tan

“This workshop has opened my eyes on photography. I have read many articles on street photography but nothing beats observing the masters doing it in real life. I am so amazed that they can go so close to the subjects without them even knowing it. Truly fearless! I have learnt not to be afraid and just go with the flow. Seeking order in chaos. Finding something in nothing. Now all I need is just practise practise practise! The Vohra brothers are truly 2 of the best street photographers alive today.” Melvin Ho

“I have been starting Street photography since about 1.5 years ago, many shot was in Frontal Shot . When I get to know about APF workshop in Singapore, I made a quick decision for the Appointment without think twice.  On the way back to Jakarta, I talked to myself that I have found My Teachers, My Street Photography Teacher !!! Big Thanks to both of you, Sir !!! As Mentor, Vohra Brothers are Superior, Humble and Wise. All the Best to Vohra Brothers, please keep inspire us.” Evi Herlyna

“A good teacher shows the student what is possible and how to go there”. Vineet and Rohit are demonstrating that during the workshop! They always available with suggestions and even manage to track down wandering students to offer their insights. Thank you for expanding my photography horizons ! Shan Zhan

“At first, I joined the workshop expecting to learn the technical aspects of capturing street, and marrying these aspects with wedding photography work. While the past three days certainly provided that, what I gained was far more than that.I learnt that a successful street photograph will come with 99 other failures. I learnt to embrace what I like and shoot what-the-hell I want, the way I want. I learnt that the streets are brimming with potential and to see and feel more rather than keep shooting away. And I also learnt that to have good street photographs, I must simply have fun.It was mind-boggling to see such a diverse range of photographs even though we shared the same location. The refreshingly honest critique of the photos were also necessary if we want to improve, and I really appreciate that. I had a great time dissecting not only my photos, but also every participant’s, and it was super enriching. Thank you everyone (mentors included) and I had a wonderful 3 days learning from all of you!” P.s: Leica dream still far away :p”  Haolun Li

“Vineet & Rohit are beyond great photographers. They’re humble, honest and creative people who can show you the decisive moment that happens in between the busy bustle of life. Their workshops are a must do for anyone serious about street not just for the lessons, but also, for the connections you make with other like minded photographers.” Adhiraj Ghosh

” Time well spent at the workshop! The Vohra brothers are generous teachers of photography, thank you very much I really appreciate all that you have given. Their enthusiasm for the street rubs off on you. Whatever stage of photography you are pursing, they offered steadfast advice to everyone in the class such that every student was able to gain more insights into thinking about photography, and ways they can develop their craft further. You could not ask for more.”  Mindy Tan
