I’ve been to India three times, in 2005, 2009 and 2023. The first 75 images on this page where shot during my last trip in January 2023. The highlights of this last trip where the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hampi and the Palolem beach of South Goa (that is if we are not talking about the Indian food :).
The Hampi UNESCO World Heritage site is stunning. Thats why I shot a lot of images in Hampi and you can find these on this website here: Hampi Travel photography. If you are looking for more information on Hampi, this is the place to go to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hampi.
We have visited 2 beaches in Goa: Palolem beach in the South and North Goa’s Vagator beach. You can watch these images on this page: Goa travel photography Palolem and Vagator beach.
India is a crazy place; it can be weird, and sometimes dangerous, but my trips have always been full of memorable experiences. The food, the people, the culture and the way of living are all a world away from my life in The Netherlands. But that’s what makes it so special.
I collected my travel stock photography of India during 3 trips. If you want to purchage usage rights please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

On my first trip in 2005 I visited Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Jodhpur.
When it came to visiting the country a second and third time, I was a little braver. I rented a car and drove about 3600 km’s during those 2 trips.
The second trip (in 2009) I flew into Chennai, on the Bay of Bengal in eastern India. Chennai is the capital of the state of Tamil Nadu. As well as providing a totally new experience, the car gave me the freedom to explore hidden towns and stop off whenever I wanted to take some photos. Driving a total of 1,600km, I visited the seldom visited destinations of Chennai, Ooty, Palani, Tiruchirappalli and Puducherry. These are all towns in the south of India, not far from the island of Sri Lanka. I quickly found out that driving in India is crazy! You have to be bold and have your wits about you, and then you’ll learn to love every second!
My third time in India was in 2023. We started in Mumbai and picked up a rental car at the airport. We drove over 2000 km’s in about 2,5 weeks to Goa, Hampi and back to Mumbai.
