Thailand Photography Workshop
with Steve McCurry
Date: 12-20 February, 2023

 

There is always an excuse to visit Bangkok.  In a vibrant metropolis dotted with restaurants, shopping malls, entertainment, and cultural landmarks, it’s no surprise that people return again and again to soak up the atmosphere.  It is also a photographer’s paradise as many beautiful sceneries are set within the city – ancient temples, floating markets, stunning cityscapes, and smiling faces.

With so much to explore and photograph, it would be an eye-opening experience for you to join our Thailand Photography Workshop led by Steve McCurry, well-loved and respected photographer of the famous Afghan Girl on National Geographic.  Steve has detailed knowledge in exploring every corner of Bangkok with access to the best places to capture. He will offer guidance, feedback, and photography techniques on location and in the classroom so that you get the best shots of Bangkok from his professional and artistic perspectives.

Steve McCurry’s 6 best tips for portrait photography

Photo by Steve McCurry

Capture the real human hidden inside

The photograph is an undeniably powerful medium. Free from the constraints of language and harnessing the unique qualities of a single moment frozen in time.

1. Look for the unguarded moments, the essential soul peeking out, experience etched on a person’s face.

2. Try to convey what it is like to be the person, a person caught in a broader landscape that you could call the human condition.

3. Expect great photos in unexpected places. Great pictures happen along the journey and not necessarily at your destination.

4. Find the story and then attack it, too much preparation can lead to procrastination.

5. Say Hello, and give people respect instead of running up and putting my camera in their faces.

6. Keep shooting. That’s the main objective.
