I always had a dream to travel to India and participate  in a photography workshop there. Finally I found FOTORBIT and I decided to join the Holi trip 2018. It was amazing, all photographers are friendly and I really enjoyed the trip very much. Without your team my Holi dream couldn’t have fulfilled the way I dreamt. Thank you again and hope to join your workshop  in the very near future…
