Over the past decade, I have photographed vintage cars for Cartier, bears for the BBC, Indian royalty for Roli Books, and weavers in Varanasi for a personal project. My career in photography caters to diverse interests and has provided me with tremendous learning, both personally and professionally.
I see workshops as an opportunity for me to share my learning with a broader group and encourage people to rethink, relook, and redefine the way one looks at the world through the lens. The sessions I conduct range from day-long workshops to more intensive programmes that extend for up to ten days.
They include lessons on how to capture the character of an individual or a place, what it takes to tell a story visually, and the difference between ‘making’ images rather than ‘taking’ them. I will also share my tips and techniques that will equip participants to shoot various photographic genres such as portraits, food, interiors and documentary images.Having been a photo editor at Time Out and now with National Geographic Traveller, I will explain the importance of ruthless editing in order to create a visual narrative and what photo editors look for in images.
I have been fortunate enough to have met and worked with leading photography experts and travel professionals who will be a part of the workshop experience.

"I have had the opportunity to collaborate closely with Ashima on a number of projects including making our award-winning film in Bangladesh, shoots for commercial clients and finally, hosting a National Geographic television series in Sri Lanka together. She is one of the hardest working people I know, who endures sleepless nights on assignments that are both physically and emotionally challenging. And she does all of it with confidence, intelligence and humour. She also happens to be a phenomenal teacher who is generous with her knowledge and diverse experiences, allowing others to benefit. Ashima is one of the finest photographers, editors, directors and teachers working today."
- Ami Vitale, National Geographic photographer & Nikon Brand Ambassador
"I heard Ashima’s advice to young photographers at a conference a few months ago, and I wish I had heard it 20 years ago when I was starting my photography career."
- Tarun Khiwal, photographer and recipient of the Hasselblad Masters Award
"Ashima has an incredible ability to tell a story through her images and can articulate this to other photographers, both enthusiasts and professionals. I have incorporated some of what I learnt from her talk in my own workshops and photo tours."
- Sudhir Shivaram, Wildlife Photographer and Canon Brand Ambassador
