Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Assam and Nagaland photography tour, India

Environment

Both our company and our location guides foster a deep respect for the environment. We visit many National Parks throughout the world and encourage sensitive and sustainable tourism with a 'leave no trace' policy. Our visit to the Kaziranga National Park directly supports the environmental ethos and values of wild life conservation. We encourage and welcome opportunities with our guests to increase environmental awareness and dialogue throughout our trips. In particular, we will promote this opportunity to learn about the work of the IFAW Wildlife Rescue Center situated in the outskirts of Kaziranga National Park in Assam.

We consider it a huge privilege to be able to visit the world’s wild places and at all times we endeavour to respect local cultures, the natural beauty and fragile environment. At the beginning of the trip we advise and discuss issues such as appropriate dress, local religious and cultural beliefs, language and exchange, disposal and re-cycling of litter in wild places and local environmental issues.
This information is also available on our web site.

Throughout our holiday we will be working alongside with local Indian guides and location experts who also speak English. We travel in small groups often splitting into smaller clusters of two or three persons in order to reduce intrusion on local communities whilst photographing. With a few exceptions when we visit iconic locations, we tend to avoid main tourist areas, concentrating instead on the less visited communities thus economically supporting innovation and a responsible tourism economy. Our photography reflects the special access we have to some less explored locations that local people have shown us. We encourage an immersive approach to the practice of photography and firmly believe that exploration by foot with ample time to engage with place is key, to the success of our trips.

Community

We are able work alongside local guides when ever possible throughout our visit. Their knowledge of and respect for, the local environment is unsurpassed. We foster an attitude that promotes responsible tourism as a sustainable development in the countries we visit. We engage with local hospitality, promoting interaction with our hosts and locals throughout this tour. Our time spent visiting traditional villages and families who are engaged in local crafts such as blacksmithing directly supports cultural exchange and the local economy.

In Nagaland, we have known and worked with our location experts for many years and as such we get to visit places often unseen by other visitors to the area. We are often treated to insights of cultural tradition and ways of life that would have passed us by. Through fostering sound connections with our hosts and guides we are able educate and gain knowledge about the locality and environment. A particular highlight of this photographic trip is our visit to the Horn Bill Festival. We believe that participating in cultural events such as this helps to engage with tradition and cultivates an awareness of heritage.
