I am an amateur photographer but do not have the patience to take classes to get better. I've heard of good workshops being taught while trekking in the Andes or the Himalaya but I cannot find anything that I like on the net. Any experience would be useful and links or addresses to on site workshops in Nepal or India are welcome.

    By "workshops" you mean a kind of study right? I'm adding a relevant tag under that assumption ... – hippietrail Feb 27 '13 at 9:47

    Yes, by workshop, I mean traveling with someone who is teaching you some skills. In my case, I love mountains and trekking and would like to it with a small group and a photographer tour leader who will share his passion. Thanks for adding a tag Katie – Katie Feb 27 '13 at 13:24
  • Andes, Nepal, and India are VERY big regions. Could you please edit your question to give it a bit more geographic focus or details to narrow it down? – Ankur Banerjee Feb 28 '13 at 0:30
