Chiang Mai Photo Workshops

enjoying photo memories

Dirk had this to say about his experience …

That was for me the 3rd kind of such a photo tour in a foreign country, after Saigon and Istanbul, I really enjoyed the tour in Chiang Mai!
Kevin and Pu are working very professionally and during the day, we visit some quite interesting places.
The tour gets me really in “shooting mood” and it was a good start in this vacation.
On my next time here, you can be sure, that I will join you one more time!
I hope to see you guys soon again!

Kevin and Pu were fantastic. I did the Day in Chiang Mai workshop. We started off the morning talking about photography and how I normally shoot which is aperture priority with AEB. I used manual for the majority of the trip. We worked a lot on composition as well as using the light. I felt like a learned a lot and got to see some nontouristy parts of Chiang Mai which was fantastic. I highly recommend this to any photographers traveling through Chiang Mai. Thanks Kevin and Pu

Inoka tells us she had “A picture perfect day”

I did a one day photography tour with Kevin and Pu on the 22nd of December 2014.

It was absolute pleasure seeing Chiang Mai from a different angle and perspective. Not only did I experience lifestyle, smells, colours, art, history and culture of this beautiful place, I also got some very good tips on improving my photography skills. Thanks to persistent Pu, I have finally started exploring Manual settings!.

The good thing about their photo tours is that you get to know your camera better. They also teach you how to “see” things differently, which means you do better compositions. This worked well for me, specially since I don’t get to play around with my camera as much as I would like to.

Both Kevin and Pu are wonderful people. They are extremely talented photographers and very patient teachers.

I hope to be back some day to explore another part of Chiang Mai with them.

Thank you for an incredible day and good luck in all you do 🙂

My photographs of the day can be found here

I didn’t have the heart to reduce the number of photographs any further.

Tim enjoyed a special workshop in the Karen village …

Kevin and I got in touch about 2 weeks before the tour and he was very responsive. The price for the work shop is pricy but so worth it!
He is a passionate photographer who likes to pass on his knowledge. We talked about technical photography as well as personal experiences. Both fields are very useful for my photography. Even though I would say I understand my camera pretty well (shooting in aperture mode as well is in manual mode), this work shop experience was fantastic. Anyone will get along with Kevin since he is open, relaxed and patient. The perfect teacher!
We visited this “Karen” family and stayed at their place. It felt like visiting family which made it even more enjoyable as it was not 48 hours non-stop photography.
It was not touristy at all to be in the little village. The overnight stay with the dinner and breakfast felt like one of the greatest experiences you could have on your trip…on top of the work shop. The experience you get from this visit is so unique for tourists as this is totally off the beaten track while Kevin and his wife make sure that you will always feel taken care of. It was amazing and I want to thank those 2 very much for the amazing 2 days!!!

Robyn had this to say about her experience …
I signed up for this tour because I was feeling frustrated with my camera and wanted to learn how to use the manual mode in order to have more control of images I capture in my travels. This morning tour was just thing to do that! Kevin and Pu had a wonderful morning planned with tours a few different markets and less-visited spots in Chiang Mai. Before the tour, I started one of Kevin’s Udemy photo course, which goes nicely with a tour for a beginner. Kevin gave clear directions on how to work with my camera and by the end of the morning I was surprised that I hadn’t felt the need to switch to my auto mode once. Both Kevin and Pu have nice connections to people in the markets and I could see this through their interactions. I was the only person on this tour, which meant I got a lot of personal instruction on light, using my camera and then about composition. This tour ended up being equally about seeing a different place in the city as about feeling confident in using my camera. I’d highly recommend this tour for any level of photographer. I can hardly wait to head out and use what I’ve learned to capture more of the amazing things I have seen in Thailand and beyond.

“Great day with Kevin and Pu, both are relaxed and warm so you immediately feel relaxed and nothing is too much trouble, Kevins knowledge, patience and passion for photography is extensive and he is happy to patiently share and encourages you to push yourself, i enjoyed the local craftspeople and kevin and pu’s relationship with them was thoroughly enjoyable, take the opportunity to take any questions re your equipment and use equipment you might not be so familiar with you will be more so by the end of the day, delightful people to spend the day with and Kevin is a natural and thoughtful teacher and his wife Pu gently and warmly encouraging.”
