A Portrait of Thailand is part of our best-selling travel photography workshop tours with celebrity photography, Me Ra Koh, and her husband, Brian Tausend, award winning photographer and cinematographer. Thailand is one of their favorite countries in the world. They've travelled with their kids to photograph this beautiful country eight times in the last ten years, and they are incredibly excited to take you off-the-beaten path to experience the exotic beauty and magic of "The Land of Smiles". Brian and Me Ra are even going to take you to their family's secret getaway in the south where the white sand beaches, snorkeling/diving and rock climbing is unlike anything you've ever seen!
Summary of your Portrait of Thailand tour
The tour will start in Bangkok where we'll see the famous and photogenic Damnoen Saduak floating market before we head north to Chiang Mai to photograph street markets, hill tribe villages and an ethically run elephant sanctuary. Next we go off-the-beaten path to the spectacular lakes and limestone cliffs of Khao Sok National Park. The tour ends at Me Ra and Brian's secret, beautiful spot (yep, we're not telling you until you're registered). You will sleep in boutique hotels, floating bamboo huts, and gorgeous Thai style homes on stilts. The country's orchid fragrances, sing-song language, sounds of the jungle's wildlife, and amazing food will inspire your senses and photography in a way you've never experienced. You will not be able to put your camera down. This 9-day Thailand photography workshop tour is a dream for both Me Ra and Brian. Their family LOVES Thailand, and they can't wait for you to fall in love with it too!
This tour is designed for ALL levels of photography. Me Ra and Brian have been teaching photography workshops and travelling abroad for over a decade. Me Ra is also one of the select Sony Artisans of Imagery, inspiring both beginners and pros. She hosts the Disney Junior show "Capture Your Story with Me Ra Koh". Whether you are a newbie who simply loves taking photos or a pro needing inspiration, this charismatic duo will take you to new levels with your camera proficiency and creativity while exploring the most gorgeous areas of Thailand. And true to their reputation, you laugh way more than you have in a long time!
Several photography workshop break-out sessions will be included during the trip. Me Ra and Brian will discuss specific shooting techniques, creative composition, lighting, editing, and best camera settings for specific situations. There will be ample time for personal feedback and hands-on help from both Me Ra and Brian. Most of all, you will have an unforgettable, life changing adventure that will take your breath away many times! There is built in time for wandering, exhaling, taking in the scenery, and always freedom to skip a photography workshop or group dinner. Me Ra and Brian are always available to enhance your experience, but we want you to feel free to take space at any time to soak up the magic of Thailand with your journal and camera alone.
If your spouse, kids, relative or friend is not a photographer but wants to experience Thailand, they are more than welcome to join us! While you do photography excursions with Me Ra and Brian, they can enjoy the white sand beaches and explore
