Our Jaipur Photography School

Our Jaipur Photography School is founded by Art Photographer Manav Singhi, the concept of Our Jaipur Photography School is to provide complete and thorough training in photography and full support not just while the course is going on but for a lifetime. This is probably the only course which is based on the contents and not just the duration. Which means, making you a photographer is a commitment, whatever time it may take. It is not a training program, where you need to bother about, how many sessions you have attended and about the duration of course. In the unlikely case that we are unable to make you understand a particular topic, we would continue with the same, till you are confident. So, you may cover up the course contents at a faster or slower pace as per your own capabilities. 

The number of students is also restricted in one group, enabling individual attention. In the success of our students lies our success. So, go ahead and unleash your passion for photography.

Broadly speaking the training involves the following parameters during your Course.

Direct Training - Learn directly from Our Mentors and Guest Lecturers who are specialized in their respective fields. Through their practical and interactive sessions at the field or lab you can learn a lot about any particular subject.

Online Interaction - Feedback and interaction is important. Besides direct discussions at the academy. You will be always in touch through this online forum. Post images and questions and get comments and answers directly from Our Mentors. 

Highlights - Content based training program - the training ends only when you are confident enough to handle everything on your own.

Well equipped studio infrastructure - get hands on experience with professional studio lights and other equipments.

Complete guidance - From buying a camera to setting up a studio and a successful career (Job Placement Assistance).

We have just one course No Basic No Advance just this one complete course and We have planned this course in a way which will going to make you an all Rounder Photographer. Photography is a practical subject so just theory will not going to help anyone cause its human tendency that when you don’t do practically something yourself you tend to forget it easily. We have planned more of the Practical sessions in Studio and on the field so that student can click what they had learned and can resolve any query on the spot.

Albert Hall Museum, Jaipur

Albert Hall Museum is a museum in Jaipur city. Albert Hall is the oldest museum of the Rajasthan and functions as the State museum. The building is located in Ram Niwas Garden outside the walled city opposite New gate or Chaura Rasta. The foundation stone of Albert Hall was laid by Albert Edward The Prince of Wales on 6 February 1876 and from there only Abert Hall got its name. The building was designed by Sir Samuel Swinton Jacob and it is a fine example of Indo-Saracenic architecture. Maharaja Ram Singh initially wanted this building to be a town hall, but his successor, Madho Singh II approved it as a Museum by the suggestion of Dr. Thomas Holbein Hendley 

The artefacts that had been collected from several parts of India and from around the World, were merged and shifted to the Albert hall Museum. The Albert Hall was completed and was opened for public in 1887 as a museum. The museum has a rich collection of artefacts like paintings, carpets, ivory, stone, metal sculptures, colourful crystal works etc. Albert Hall is a very picturistic place from inside and outside both. I will Highly Recommend this place for all the Tourists who visit India and jaipur.

NaharGarh Fort, Jaipur, Rajasthan.

NaharGarh Fort is at approx 700feet high from city level on the edge of Aravalli hill offering a breath taking view of the Pink City Jaipur. Nahargarh Fort of Rajasthan is the first of the three forts built by Maharaja Jai Sawai Singh of Jaipur in Rajasthan. Along with Amber Fort and Jaigarh Fort, Nahargarh once formed a strong defence ring for the city. The fort was originally named Sudarshangarh, but it became known as NaharGarh, which means 'Abode of Tigers'. The beauty of the place is so refreshing that it remains fresh in the memory for a long time. In this post instead of putting simple photographs I gave them the Painting effect Cause whenever I go at NaharGarh Fort I feel like I am living in a Painting created in History by the colors of Romance.
