We run travel photography workshops to teach you to know your camera better. Learn to experience real creative expression in your photography. Modern cameras are full of incredible technology with many automatic settings. They are great for making snapshots, but you want more than that. You can learn to use your camera to create images with feeling. Images 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. We can tailor a workshop to your skill level and share our passion for photography with you.
