Incredible India


I love that feeling when you’re about to step off the plane onto unfamiliar territory. There is a cocktail mix of nervousness and excitement at the same time but there is a strong desire to just explore, share knowledge and to experience life you’ve only seen and heard about on tv or magazines. It’s an addicting feeling and a friend once said to me “Now you’ve got the travel bug” when I first traveled outside of the united states. I definitely caught that bug.

You can do all the research and ask for guidance from friends who have traveled to India or any other country but nothing can really prepare you for the experiences that this country will throw at you. You just have to jump into it directly, soak it all in and go with the flow of life. It was photographers paradise with so many choices of subjects, landscapes and archaic architectures.

We were very fortunate to explore a couple of states in the Thar desert of Rajasthan located in the Northwest of India. We traveled by plane, train, and hired driver between the states of Delhi, Varanasi, Agra, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Udaipar and Pushkar.

These photos are just a preview of what my girlfriend and I experienced during our 2 1/2 weeks traveling in India. We barely scratched the surface of exploring this amazing country but it was enough to get a glimpse of daily life in this beautiful and exotic country.

  • jeffrey k. edwards - Alex – You were incredibly productive during your visit to India! The spectrum of images you were able to capture is remarkable. Your vision and sense of connection with the people you met is really spectacular. As you know, few people have the unique ability to have both!

    I am curious, what do you choose to shoot with when traveling – nikon, cannon or fuji? And what is your go to lens, most of the time? I shoot both nikon and fuji at the moment, but when traveling, leaning more and more towards the fuji.
