Photography and Traveling, goes hands in hands. The team at TALHA GHOURI PHOTOGRAPHY SCHOOL plans Professional Photo Excursions to remote localities in the country,ranging from a Photography Trip to MAKLI Ruins to Astro Photography Trip to NAGARPARKAR.

We are planning to go to a 2 days and 1 nights Astrophotography Workshop and a Photographer's Retreat and Excursion trip to Ormara Beach, Balochistan.

There would be a Theory Class, at Talha Ghouri Photography School first. Where we'd learn about Astro Photography, how to do it, when to do it, where to do it. Tips, Tricks and Techniques.

Then we'll go on a Practical Astro Photography Excursion to ORMARA.
The tour starts with from Karachi in the morning, breakfast at WINDER and through Kund Malir Beach with clean clear Arabian Sea making waves at the beach, we head on to ORMARA. We camp at the beach, spend the night shooting the stars and heavens.

The second morning starts with breakfast on the beach and sigh seeing at Buzzi Pass, Princess of Hope, and on the way back, a short stop at Winder for Lunch.
