Do you want to learn how to get the most from your camera and really enjoy photography? Whether online or in person we’d love to teach you.

All of our photography workshops are designed for amateur photographers of all levels interested in improving their skills.

We run photo workshops to teach and encourage you to know your camera and experience real creative expression in your photography. Modern cameras are full of incredible technology with many automatic settings that are great for making snapshots. But you can do better than that. You can learn to use your camera to create images with feeling, that tell a story and really communicate your vision.

We have an expanding range of online courses designed to fit your lifestyle – no need to make extra time for extended study as our online workshops will integrate easily into your daily routine.

If you’re traveling to Thailand come and meet us in person so we can tailor a workshop to your skill level and share our passion for photography with you.

online photography workshops

Taking an online course is a great way to learn to get the most from your camera when you can’t make it to one of our workshops in person … and a great way to remind yourself of what you learned if you have experienced learning with us in person.

Once you’ve enrolled in any of our online courses you have continual access and can revisit all of the lessons as often as you want. Like our in-person workshops, our online courses are extremely practical and offer a lot more than just onscreen tutoring.

There’s no deadlines and no pressure. You take the courses in your own time and complete them as you can. We work with Teachable to ensure secure, reliable hosting of our courses and a secure payment gateway so you can be confident in making an online payment. All our courses come with a 30-day money back guarantee, so if for any reason you’re not happy with the course your purchase payment will be refunded.
