Email: What does it take to produce great photographs? Award-winning travel and documentary photographer Alan McArthur takes you through the process, leading 1,2 and 3 days cultural and photographic workshops out and about in Chiang Mai. The focus of the workshops is getting to know your camera better, increasing awareness of your subject, and its environment, working with and around light, choosing perspective and working depths of field. A typical day starts at 8 am when we meet at Wat Phra Singh, a Buddhist teaching temple in the heart of the old city, for a morning spectacle of the young novice monks gathering for assembly. Then, its on to a local fresh produce market. Afterwards we head to a unique forest temple and its strange cemetery of abandoned Buddhist statues. Lunch is at 12.30. This is a chance to ask questions, and discuss what has been learnt so far. In the afternoon, we focus on portraiture, with a choice of locations and models. This can discussed at lunch and tailored to your tastes. Numbers are kept small, with usually no more than 5. The itinerary can be discussed the evening before. Visits to any of the temples come with an introduction to Buddhist art history. Chiang Mai has a rich art culture. If you are interested in visiting galleries, attending lectures, or visiting art markets, please ask, and this can be included in the itinerary. (Photos displayed below taken by Alan McArthur)
