"Photography is an austere and blazing poetry of the real." – Ansel Adams

Photography is an eloquent language of self-expression and a rewarding hobby. It compels us to explore and look around us more carefully and prompts us to discover not only the world but also ourselves in the process. It makes us more human.

The 'shutter bug' is a good bug and if you are bitten by it, Toehold, with its wide range of services to help you tide over the learning curve seamlessly, is the best companion to have in your photographic growth. Our Workshops give you a sound foundation in photography so you can give shape to your lofty visions on it. Our Equipment-Rental service, which is India's first and largest, gives you access to the best photo gear at affordable prices. We create great opportunities to shoot like a pro, on our carefully planned Photography Tours, where the joy of travel and photography converge. And when your kids are ready to follow in your footsteps, we initiate them into the wonderful world of nature and photography through our special Children's Camps. Truly, a service is seldom as comprehensive.
