“Toehold was born out of a dream to be a one-stop answer to all the problems and needs that any aspiring photographer or travel enthusiast any have. So we created a company which would train a photography beginner on the basic and advanced aspects of the art and science of photography,” says Jayanth Sharma while mentioning that the company, till now, has trained over 9000 photography enthusiasts and led tours to over 60 destinations.
“My personal thirst for exploring a new place often leads to the creation of a Tour plan to that new destination, with which I get to help people experience what I had experienced. Also, mentoring people allows me to stay on top of my photography skills. I believe that there should always be time for the things you love,” added Jayanth who is also a Carnatic singer.
The tours and workshops at Toehold are conceived and delivered by photographers who are immensely passionate about it. Apart from training enthusiasts on the nuts and bolts of photography, the trainers also guide them through their artistic and often self-exploratory journey through it.
