Joining DEEP BHATIA PHOTOGRAPHY ACADEMY, led by Master Teacher, Mentor and Guide, Shree DEEP BHATIA, who has profound knowledge in his genres whether it is PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY or any other courses he conducts, I personally learned a lot and every time get refreshed, sharpened my skills with more intricacies on subjects and became rich with his innovative ideas and techniques. The best part of it is the uniqueness of his presentations of the courses using slides, videos, analysis of assigned works, deliberations and lastly interactionsamongst participants help a lot to understand any topics thoroughly. One can find it easier while go for practical. Despite my association with photography for a pretty long time, still I feel the necessity to join his classes without missing any one to update myself with new ideas and get in touch with his innovative ways of thinking on subjects where much R & D jobs were done could be observed. I always recommend anyone who has love and passion for learning Photography remain associated with our beloved DEEP Sir. Attending his courses, you will feel confident and progress a lot. REGARDS Sir.

I am very lucky to have attended many of the online courses on different genre of photography conducted by Deep Bhatia Ji viz. Still Life, Portraiture, Creative & Surreal Photography, Basic and Advance Liquid Droplet Photography Course I have even repeated many of the above courses for further learning.

I am very lucky, happy and honored to have Deep Bhatia Ji as my mentor and guru. His training techniques and teaching methodology have been very unique, creative and simple. The mind and heart of each individual participant gets fully charged, involved and absorbed in the same.

It is because; Deep Bhatia Ji tries to share each minute details of the knowledge of photography with his disciples, which now a days, mostly avoided. As he has put together many years of experience and hard work in his simplified way of presentation through PPT and small video clippings, he has made the understanding of the subject easy and interesting. Participants need not spend time in reinventing the same. He is very gentle, sober and helpful in clarifying the doubts on various photographic problems. He also provides knowledge about different photographic equipment, how and from where to procure them from different sources and how to use them.

My sincere gratitude to Deep Bhatia Ji, for sharing his vast experience and knowledge and hand holding us to the various aspects of photography.

I am one of the oldest participants of Online classes of Deep Bhatia Photography since 2020. Though it is online, a feeling of homely felling along with the participants from home and abroad will persists throughout the period. The entire class and atmosphere will turn into a homely feeling as if sitting side by side in a room. Being a wildlife photographer I was always lacking behind the intric of Indoor Portrait Photography with artificial Light set up. As I live in a remote part of Bengal I had very seldom opportunity to develop the skill in absence of appropriate and methodical learning that is the key factor for expertisation in any field. Here, In Deep Bhatia online photography classes I have found out the dictionary of learning in every nook and corners of Portrait Photography. Now I feel proud that my images get awards and acceptances that was beyond my dream. I repeat every time, because there is changes in every course which is always updated with new thoughts and procedure that is essential for keeping me updated. The fees structure for a course of 30 days consisting of 8 classes is affordable by avery body. As the moto of Mr. Deep Bhatia is to spread his thoughts and years old experience to the remote, the Fees we pay is less than the minimum. To the best of my feeling, the school like teaching with practical approach followed by face to face evaluation and online assessment during one month course will get injected in to one's heart which we can not learn over the years. Thanks to Deep Bhating Photography.

Being a part of the recently concluded online Indoor Portrait Photography course conducted by our beloved and extremely knowledgeable Sir, Mr. Deep Bhatia has been one of the most beneficial things in my life. His deep knowledge about various genres of photography and art (both theoritical as well as practical) and immense editing skills which he does with absolute ease very aptly syncs with his name. Sir's meticulous and proactive ways of teaching make the entire session very lively and engrossing. With due respect to all my teachers, mentors, guides that I have come across in various phases of my life, I must admit that teachers like Deep Sir are hard to find. I am also overwhelmed by the huge collection of awards he has in his baggage which itself speaks volumes about his great artisitic and aesthetic skills. Indeed what a talent !! Really feels proud to be associated with such a personality. I have done multiple online courses under him and am currently doing another course in Still Life Photography which is also being quite brilliantly conducted as always. Will certainly recommend others to join his courses as the great advantage of his curriculum is the fact that one is able to even watch the recorded version of the entire class for future references or in case one is unable to attend some sessions. Morever, in my opinion the fees for his courses seem to be quite reasonable considering the time period of the courses and the amount of information that is shared by him. I for sure will definitely be a part of his other photography courses in the future. I will always be praying for a very healthy and prolonged life of Sir for many more years to come to keep on being the active guiding light for many aspirant students like me. With best regards.

Dear Bhatia Sir, I always wonder how other people get such a beautiful image in droplet photography. I tried with manual setups but it was hard to get good consistent pictures. Then I heard about Droplet Photography course by you and immediately join the course. Based on your recommendation and encouragement I joined Advanced Droplet photography directly and so far, no regrets, I am able to manage pretty well with all the course content provided by you.

Every class of yours taught me many new things. You explained every small thing like Camera angles, Flash light adjustment, accessories, equipment, cleaning of equipment so well that we hardly face any issues while working. The best part is, you never shy away with sharing your experiences which you get during working in new techniques. I will keep joining most of your upcoming courses. It’s great learning experience with you. Thanks sir. Best regards

I really enjoyed the course and learned a lot about how to take better Studio Portraits. Deep Sir was clear and concise, and the explanations were easy to follow. The course covered a wide range of topics, from basic lighting techniques to advanced post-processing. I felt like I came away with a good understanding of the fundamentals of Studio Portraiture. I appreciate the hands-on exercises and assignments that were included in the course. Those helped me to solidify my understanding of the concepts that were being taught. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested in taking better Studio Light Portraits. It is a great way to learn the nuances of lighting and post-processing in an engaging and informative way. I am fortunate to gain the knowledge concisely in this short course which Deep Sir has achieved over years of experience.

The indoor potrait photography course was a brilliant one indeed. Apart from the instrumentations the main thing to learn is to understand's necessary to understand the nature of light after seeing a picture and that's the first pivotal point to make strategy to edit the pic..and it is impossible without knowing the technique of how to create the picture from the scratch...may it be a low key or high key photo..that's the USP of this course so far...another take home for me is the PEN TABLET... it's a massive help for me in editing...more over it has been a privilege to know the informations and lessons from the master of mentors, Mr. Deep Bhatia sir...he is truly a gem of a person I must say....the way he has set the curriculum was just stupendous...I wish to learn a lot from him in future...
