Experience a creative vacation in the hills hosted by an artist! We welcome art/photography enthusiasts and creative minds to our home in Coonoor where I would like to share my many years of experience working with photography and art. This comfortable artist's house offers ample space and inspiration for creative thought. Be inspired by the work of master artists, discuss photography and painting techniques, explore the outdoors and rekindle the creative spark.
The stay is suited for individuals or small groups enthusiastic about art/photography and keen to expand their creative horizons, prior experience with art is not necessary but curiosity is mandatory. This is not a workshop or a course/photography but a great chance to have intimate discussions on everything art with someone who has spent a large part of his life on creative work.
Your time here can be planned out based on your interests and skill level. Ideally a mix of interactions and some hands on activities. I have shot extensively on film cameras and will be glad to introduce you to the equipment and techniques used and also discuss some of my work in fashion, food and travel photography. Feel free to bring along some of your work. If you would like to paint then we can provide you with paints,brushes and other tools that you might need. An ideal day would involve getting introduced to / inspired by the works of master photographers/artists like Ansel Adams, Bresson, Van Gogh or Monet, complemented with an outdoor shoot or some painting at the studio.
Your stay will be in a tastefully decorated artist's home set in a spacious property with well maintained lawns and gardens. There are many outdoor sit outs with views of tea gardens and forests ideal to enjoy your cup of tea and for some reflection time. A spacious living area where you can relax with a book from our personal collection. 2 bedrooms in the ground floor are available for guest stay, we can accommodate a maximum of 4 people.
