Feedback from Previous participants:
I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Whilst I was able to take the photos of my choice, I also chose to put my camera down at each location and just absorb the culture around me. That gave my photography so much more than I could have expected than if I had just photographed the whole time. I feel it is important to experience the culture and witness the different idiosyncrasies within the culture of wherever you are. – Judi
I joined Julie for a photographic and cultural experience in 2015.The tour was a trip to remember with such diversity of subjects from street people to macro shots of flowers . The Thai cooking class was delicious. Beautiful scenery, spectacular views and an array of portrait opportunities. The festival that was on whilst we were there and the temples we saw were fantastic .
Julie’s enthusiasm and knowledge of the area was exceptional along with the local knowledge and contacts of our driver. My photography certainly improved and I had a great time with a group of like-minded people. I like to would happily recommend this trip to anyone
