We had the great pleasure of meeting Arun on our recent trip to India. Arun guided us through a wonderful 2 days on the streets and the sights of Mumbai. His knowledge of the city and the right spots to capture great photos is second to none. He led us to areas at the right times to capture images with the perfect play of lights and shadows. His friendly and easy-going way helped us see India in a whole new light and we hope to travel back to India very soon and experience Arun’s Holi experience. Anyone interested in a photographic experience in India should definitely contact Arun.
I attended the Barsana Nandgaon Holi Phototour with Arun Saha sir in 2023. Whatever I write down here does not justify my experience during the entire phototour. The best part is that Arun sir is so approachable that you can ask him to review or his suggestions on any of your photos clicked during the trip. He arranged the tour to perfection and everything was planned so meticulously. He arranged for a photo review session at the end of our tour which I found to be the most unique and helpful part. This helped me to understand where I can improve my photography. Probably I would never learn as much as I have learnt during this entire tour. Met with several experienced photographers from all over the world which helped me to get their various perspectives as well.
Looking forward to attend the next phototour with Arun Saha sir. ❤️🙏
For past few years I was looking for a trusted Partner for visiting and photographing the Theyyam Tour. In between, we were hit by the Pandemic and two full years didn’t get any opportunity. This year March 2022, when things got a bit better, it was a great opportunity to go down and experience Theyyam in and around Kannur, Kerala region. This was made possible all due to Arun Saha, someone who took us into the magical land of Kerala. The stay was fantastic, food was fantastic, company of fellow photographers was awesome, made some new friends too. Arun Saha is a great mentor, someone who assists in details, does help with tips on what to do, what to expect, and where to stand. Honestly in the sea of people who converge at Theyyam every day and night, it’s the most difficult photographic tour I have experienced, as it tests your patience, and physical abilities including sleepless nights, day and night running around, very low lights during Night Theyyams and people moving in your frames all the time to get the best composition or frame is very challenging. Arun Saha made it all possible, thanks to him, did get a chance to photograph, meet wonderful photographers and most importantly experience the best classical and traditional art form festival which shouldn’t be missed by anyone in India and outside. Anytime recommended !!!
My sincere thanks to Arun Sir who built my interest in photography. My journey started with a theoretical workshop with him in kolkata where I learned more than I could imagine about this field of art. The best part about Arun Sir is his vision. His photographs and the knowledge he gives us about the same always says a story. The workshop made me attend the actual field trip to Varanasi for Dev Deepawali . It was just fantastic, I learned a lot as communicating with him is so comfortable. I am looking forward to attend more of ASP field trips as they are fun and I meet so many new amazing photographers too.
At the outset I would like to thank my mentor Mr. Arun Saha with whom I attended my first ever workshop in the true sense, the JEJURI-KOLHAPUR PHOTO TOUR & WORKSHOP.
The 3 c’s of a true mentor Clarity, Communication and Commitment are all imbibed in him. What was very noticeable was his dedication towards his group; each member was his priority whether he was just starting his photography journey or had been on it for a long time. His intention is to pass on as much of his experience to people as time and their expectations allow.
I would like to thank you for focusing on my weaknesses and guiding me throughout the journey letting me know which areas to prioritise and improve.
Thank you Arun Saha and ASP for making it memorable for me and even though you are a hard task master I will definitely be joining you for more such workshops. And to the others who have not yet tested an experience with him, if given a chance to attend one, grab it before it’s gone.
At the outset, I sincerely congratulate the mentor Mr Arun Saha for seamlessly completing the Desert Oddesy, where my presence was maiden…His relentless effort made it a grand success…as a new entrance in this arena, I solemnly confess that the exposures which I came across during this journey has opened up a new vista..for me this is a paradigm approach…I’m extremely benefited with such type of colorful trip which beset with a wide variety of physical as well as visual environment that creates an unforgettable resonance…a perfect blend of human nature and pictorial catalog…last but not the least, my sincere gratitude to mentor Mr. Saha whose mentorship coupled with his human quality has reached the trip an excellent level.
Just had a memorable Phototour “Royal Rajasthan…A Desert Odyssey” organised by ASP. It was a wonderful experience under the mentorship of Mr. Arun Saha and shooting with other passionate senior photographers for the last few days. We enjoyed a lot and are going back with a lot of good memories and unforgettable unique moments. I strongly recommend every photographer for such phototours with ASP.
If someone doesn’t have a sweet memory with Arun Saha as a photo mentor in any ASP Phototour, it’s his failure. Despite being a complete amateur and hobbyist with little knowledge of various aspects of photography, still I could end up capturing some satisfactory frames because of his able guidance in my photo tours with him.
Recently I have completed a photo tour with Arun Saha to cover “Theyyam” which I think was highly challenging, technically as well as physically. But his mentorship eased everything. Prior to our tour, he held a webinar discussing every detailed knowledge about this night photography which was full of action. Moreover, balancing the highlight of fire on one side and the shadow on the other was the toughest part of this tour.
Apart from Theyyam, Kalaripayattu & Kambala were also part of this photo tour. From this tour, we got to capture events more than what was planned earlier.
And his arrangements for our staying and food were awesome and beyond our expectations. Every moment was delightful.
I am waiting for my next photo tour with him. My heartfelt thanks to Mr. Arun Saha and ASP.
My photo tour with ASP to Rajasthan, The Desert Odyssey under the mentorship of Arun Saha was an extremely enjoyable one.. met some great people, made new friends, learnt a lot from everyone. Arun da himself is a warm mentor, ensured personally we get good photos and remain comfortable with our stays…and was readily available to sort out any problem.
What I got from this trip is a new experience with Photography and the understanding of how to deal with different light conditions that change the entire scenery in post-processing… Especially enjoyed the light painting exercises.
Thank you for a memorable trip. 🙂
Firstly I would like to thank Mr. Arun Saha Sir as a brilliant Mentor as well as I appreciate His patience and support. As a person I have no words to describe , He’s a very good Human Being and He’s an unbelievable Photographer.
It was a great memory for me,
Our trip to Varanasi for Dev Deepavali in 2017 was an entirely different experience.
Arun Sir’s approach to the Varanasi Dev-Deepavali workshop exemplified his knowledge, experience, and aesthetic vision.
I have learned a lot of new things about photography.
Thank you for your generosity and a very informative workshop,
