About Chiang Mai Photo Workshops
Do you want to learn how to get the most from your camera? Or just find some of the best locations in and around Chiang Mai to shoot photos? We run workshops designed to teach you how to enjoy your camera more and get stunning results. We'll also take you places most tour guides will not. We started these workshops because we see so many tourists who are not confident using their cameras. Modern cameras are full of incredible technology with many automatic settings. These are great for making snapshots. But you can do better than that. You can learn to use your camera to create images with feeling. Photos tell a story and really communicate your travel experience. I have over 25 years experience as a professional photographer. Please visit our website to read details of the workshops and make a booking.

Kevin taught me to tell stories with my photographs I recently returned from a 5 day photo workshop/retreat with the amazing Kevin LJ. I had taken a few courses in the past but honestly none of it really stuck with me. This time was different. Kevin is an amazingly patient teacher and his passion for photography (and teaching) shines through and is contagious. I believe that the success I feel this time is because by staying in their lovely guesthouse I was immersed in photography all day and into the evening. It was intense (at my request) as I had a lot to learn but being able to sit out on their lovely balcony overlooking rice fields, fruit trees and a Chedi in the evening was rejuvenating. I took several pictures of the landscape trying to capture the beauty but the photos did not do it justice. It wasn’t until I took a video and captured not only what I saw but also the symphony of frogs, crickets, occasional birds, and running water from a small stream into the rice patty that I was able to capture the magic of Suan Sook Homestay. In addition to all that - I have to say that I was spoiled with fantastic Thai food created by the very sweet Pansa – Kevin’s wife. The only thing that I regret was letting the price delay my decision to take the course. Yes the cost is high but I can honestly say that you get what you pay for - absolutely top quality instruction and overall experience.

I've been enjoying Kevin's articles on a photography website for a couple of years and that made for an easy decision when heading to Chiang Mai. I wanted to do a photography workshop and didn't need to look any further. I was pleased that throughout the day I learned a lot from Kevin, and not all of it from direct instruction. Just by picking his brain on various topics I got some useful information and tips which was great. I highly recommend taking this workshop.

Thanks Phil. I appreciate that you've known my style of teaching from the articles I write and that the in-person experience you had during the workshop was also valuable to you. I love it when I'm asked lots of good questions during a workshop :) Enjoy the online courses and I look forward to seeing more of your photos and interacting with you in our facebook group.

Kevin is a talented photographer and instructor. He made sure to understand what it was that my husband and I wanted to see, experience and accomplish and then, over the course of three days he made it all happen! Big shout out to Kevin's wife, also a photographer and amazing cook, Pansa!

I had an absolutely wonderful day with Kevin in Chiang Mai. It was a one-on-one lesson as Kevin showed me around various areas of Chiang Mai, off the beaten tourist path, and let me pick areas I wanted to go to as well! I have a Nikon Coolpix B500 and Kevin got me from novice on automatic only to using manual mode properly in just over an hour! My photographs visibly improved with all of the tips and tricks he shared with me, showing me how he viewed a busy market scene and could break down shots of one view in different ways. Seeing the silver temple and the young monks working was a highlight of the day! Kevin was incredibly kind and patient throughout the day and we had a nice lunch at an isolated café and spoke about photography! Kevin even drove a way out of the way to show me how to photograph betta fish (an animal I research at University) and fish in tanks, with artificial lighting and glass issues etc. I'm just very sorry it has taken me so long to give my review - life catches up with you! Oh and Kevin critiques photographs on his YouTube channel and gave me some wonderful feedback on some photos I had taken later on in Chiang Mai, which I really appreciated! I had a really wonderful day with Kevin and the next time I am in Chiang Mai I would love to another workshop with him in the future!

I enjoyed a day with Kevin a few weeks ago. I booked the local lifestyle workshop and Kevin took me to some local markets and later in the day to the Silver Temple which I liked very much. During the day whe had nice conversations about photography and I received a lot of tips how I can improve my photography very quickly. Kevin encouraged me to shoot manual mode more and I did for the rest of my trip through Thailand and I already noticed a difference in how I looked at photo opportunities and people. Kevin is a very friendly man who really takes the time to get to know you and help you improve your skills in a short time. If you have the time I recommend you to join this workshop too.
