And then I realized how much money I was throwing away, and that I wasn’t being carefree, I was being careless!

Workshops & Events
October 19th – 23rd, 2015 • Bangkok, Thailand
This is an intensive, week long workshop that focuses on building your food, travel, street and lifestyle photography. Using the backdrop of one of the most beautiful and fascinating places to photograph, Thailand, we’ll focus on building your photography skill, teaching practical editing techniques to enhance your work and by the end of the week you’ll have a portfolio of some of the best photos you’ve ever taken.
If you’re a blogger you know photography matters. Not everyone travels or takes photos of food, but the skills you learn in this workshop can be applied to any type of blog. Each day we focus on a different kind of photography situation.
