Chiang Mai Photo Workshops

Culture Rich Local Markets

Chiang Mai is full of photography opportunities amongst it’s rich culture and history, much of which can be seen in a few fabulous locations near the banks of the Ping River. Local markets in any city tend to be great places to experience the heartbeat and genuine way of life of the people.

About the Workshop

Chiang Mai’s biggest and busiest markets are where have an early start for our three hour markets workshop. Here Kevin will start teaching about light and why it’s the most essential ingredient of photography. He’ll teach you how your camera reads and responds to light, and how to make a good exposure. Understanding this will give you greater scope to be creative in your image making.

You will learn composition technique and how to look more carefully. We’ll demonstrate the impact point of view has when framing your subject. You will gain a new appreciation of what you see when you look through your camera.

At the market we also focus on teaching about photographing people. Northern Thai people generally are not shy of being photographed. In every culture being sensitive and polite is very important. We will address this subject as we photograph the locals in their everyday work environments.

The ‘decisive moment’ – capturing the action and story telling with your photos are two other topics we will talk about throughout the morning.
