Design Team – Capt Suresh & Dr Rajbir kaur

Imagine travelling on a self-contained vehicle like this and while travelling capturing every opportunity of `roadside photography’ and then reaching a location to spend a night and shoot at dusk and dawn, no rush and no loss of time while getting back to your hotel for night stay;experience the outdoors like never before. There can not be a better option for photographers than this. You save your precious time of scouting around, as we take you to the right places, most of which have been treaded by our experienced photographers before your arrival on the itinerary. There will be special itineraries, with focus on special events (cultural fairs and festivals) as well. We will take you to places where you would have not even thought of venturing, for want of logistical support.

Our strength is FREEDOM & FLEXIBILITY …  we are sure, some of you can visualise the unique experience, which Green Dot Expeditions is going to offer, while reading information here.

We can assure you that there can not be a better way to explore, enjoy and photograph India than ours.

  1. Namaste Captain Suresh

    The truck is looking simply great! Have you considered a slogan as “Green dot expeditions, to discover India”

    Other adds may be related with the photo demonstrations/workshops every night.. “get back home with unforgettable memories through daily photo workshops”

    Not all your guests will be proficient photographers… so, what to offer then the chance to get back to home with some memories above what they were expecting? I can “see” their faces after you explaining them how to make those great images you do… and they coming back with their own images!

    You may prepare some easy to follow photoguide with step by step instructions on how to do this or that kind of effect… ! They not just enjoy the discovering trip.. they also learn!

    WOuld it be possible to put any of your wonderful images on the truck? a Sunset… one of our beloved snakes ( a cobra) , YOUR WONDERFUL CACTUS.. or flowers?

    These were just some ideas pop up from my mind just looking at the truck…

    My respects, blessings and Namaste


  2. greeting from bombay captain
    it most wonderful idea i am sure it would be success too, i would like to be part of it and suggest some more things if i know more about it, by the way you can have
    1) Ham radio for communications base station ,
    2) KPI for aerial photography when in wild u can get wonderful pic from kites,
    3) one rubber dingy or boat if we encounter some water canal in out tour.
    4)some mountaineering ropes and carbners and mulitools like leatherma or swissknifes.
    5) i know talking and writing is easy but whole project must be cost a great deal so need to find some corporate to fund it too.
    if we have in to it the outcome will be sure success.best of luck and i shall be waiting for to hear from you soo, but preferable time would be after 3pm.
    thanks and regards

  3. Working and being an Amateur photographer – I have very less time to plan/organize my trips. This vehicle looks like a dream machine with dream offer, which can take us around India comfortably without having to worry about food/accommodation (saving time) which gives more chances to spend time on location for photography. Having best skilled people around with you, to teach photography to make you have the best images when you come back.

    Never came across anything like this before. It’s Unique, indeed!! Offers to make sure you have the best photography tour. Certainly will look forward to tour with Green Dot Expedition soon and want to be the first one…Hope to catch many photographers from different parts of India. I’m excited!!

  4. Dear Captain,

    It is indeed a great initiative . This is going to be an unforgettable experience.
    All the very best to your journeys of a lifetime filled with adventure & fun.
