I first heard about the pehlwan (wrestlers) of Kohlapur a few months ago and decided to include it in our next India itinerary. I wanted to tell the visual story of the rigoureus regime of the pehlwan and their life in the talim. The only drawback was, would I a woman be allowed inside the talim to obtain the photos I desired.
Fortunately a friend directed me to Arun Saha and from the first point of contact Arun knew what I wished to achieve and offered a tailor-made photo workshop for myself and husband.
We travelled to Kohlapur from Mumbai and Arun from Pune, and met exactly at the pre-arranged time and place. Arun’s planning of the best photographic time to visit each talim was very well organised. During the four separate sessions not only was the shooting fruitful but also pleasurable to be with Arun. Arun offered good tips, and was instrumental in obtaining for me the access that I required.
Arun and I met as strangers and left as friends. I look forward to the opportunity of shooting with Arun in the future and would have no hesitation to recommend Arun Saha to other photographers.

Initially I was skeptical about my trip for KULASAI DASARA. I personally believe any photographer must know the story and background so that he is able to visualize entire perspective.
Arun Saha was our mentor for the trip. He is so serious that before the trip he organized a Webinar to share the story and reply to our all queries regarding the tour that made us understanding the entire journey easier.
Finally we all participants met and for the first time I met Arun. He is a person who can win the hearts of any individual with his mesmerizing personality. Excellent mentor, in depth knowledge and a nice human being. More I say less it will be.
It was a memorable trip for me. Will join again next year too. After Kulasai Dasara, proceeded along with him to cover Theyyam.
To me, Arun is a friend, philosopher and guide with all possible solutions for any requirement.
Last but not the least his all tours are economical without any compromise.
Will return home, join Office but these few days spent with him will always be close to my heart forever.
I Wish to join him in many of his future tours as much as possible.

“An Unforgettable Photography Journey with ASP”
The photography tour to Ladakh was an experience of a lifetime, one that I will cherish forever. This was my first photography tour, glad that I had it with one of the best photographers cum mentors. It was a wonderful learning experience for me.

Mr. Arun Saha’s experience, energy and expertise were invaluable. His mentorship, guidance and support made the trip even more enjoyable and enriching. His suggestions on shooting spots, moments, composition and ideal setups were apt and greatly contributed to my skill and knowledge.

The itinerary was excellently planned, allowing us to sufficiently explore and capture the picturesque sites and also the very essence of Ladakh covering multiple monasteries, unique local festivals, cultures and communities.
Arun Sir took special care to arrange and ensure comfort and convenience with regard to the place of stay, food schedules and logistics.
This trip was truly exceptional and unforgettable, it provided ample opportunities to learn, share experiences, and develop new connections for all participants. Will surely look forward to join Arun Sir for the next trip in the future.

Arun Saha is a very good friend of mine. But setting aside that friendship part, I’ve lots of respect for his eye for photography. I’ve been with him before, but that was a personal trip.
For the first time, I had been with him in his ASP photo tours. I must say here, that I had been to Ladakh before. But here I felt the difference. Because Arunda has planned his trips so well, this trip has been very fruitful. Made a lot of photos, and shooting with Arunda was a pleasure. And regarding the logistics facilities like transport & accommodations, it’s been top class. Surely would plan future trips with him. My best wishes to ASP phototours.

To experience and capture ‘Braj ki Holi’ is every photographer’s dream, and this for me was made possible by Arun Saha. During the Holi photo-tour to Vrindavan, we realized it wasn’t an easy one, for it required a high level of physical, mental and logistical preparation. It is because of Arun’s experience and the relationships he has built there, that the tour became easy for us!

As a mentor, he is genuinely concerned about the quality of your work, is honest with feedback and open about tools & techniques he uses to get world-class photos. The tour met every expectation possible and I certainly look forward to more learnings with him.

In March 2023 I joined Arun Saha in his Indonesia trip. Though I know Arun for quite a long time and took part in many of his photo tours I was a bit apprehensive about this trip as it was his first Indonesia trip. But after doing the trip I realised that I would have missed some great photo opportunities if I had not joined this trip. The entire trip was amazing. The place was beautiful itself but in collaboration with the local photographers Arun arranged everything so flawlessly that we all had an excellent experience. We got numerous amazing photo frames, the hospitality was beyond expectations though the tour cost was very reasonable and above all Arun ensured it with great expertise that all participants come back home with lots of great pictures and he also told us to feel free to approach him if we need any kind of guidance or assistance regarding the post-processing of those pictures. We all came back with great satisfaction and almost all of us decided then and there that we would join Arun’s next Indonesia trip also.

I did a wonderful Holi photo tour with Arun. Everything was very well arranged before the tour started, we already received a lot of information and tips. And he arranged protection for our cameras. And during the tour it took us to the right places to take beautiful pictures and gave good tips and directions. But also the transport and hotel was well arranged. Thanks to Arun’s photo tour, we came home to the Netherlands with beautiful pictures. And working with photographers from India is a good addition and I wouldn’t have wanted to miss it. Looking forward to another photo tour with Arun and the Indian photographers.

I joined Arun for the Holi trip this year and the experience was amazing! Not only is Arun a master of compositions, he is very technically sound and makes for a superb mentor. I personally felt that I learnt a lot from Arun on the trip. I will definitely be doing another trip with him and would highly recommend him to others as well.

I am fairly new to the world of photography, and was looking for a tour which would further help me step into this art form. I had been
following Arun Saha’s photos both on Facebook and Instagram, and found them to be very soulful, always having a story behind them.
Recently, I got the opportunity to participate in a photo tour organised by him to cover Barsana and Nand Gao Holi 2023.
I found Arun sir to be a great mentor. He helped me solidify my basics, and gave me a good grasp on my camera settings and how to frame compositions. Physically, the tour was difficult, but with sir’s support and guidance, I was able to capture good photographs. In fact, he ensured that each one of us in the group was able to get good frames. The hospitality was also top-class and his assistant Satyendra Pratap was always there to help us with a smile on his face. I met senior photographers and made some new friends too. I look forward to attending many more photography tours with ASP under Arun Saha Sir.
