Thailand Mentor Series Trek

We have a few more spots available for the up coming Thailand Trek.  Don't miss this opportunity to travel to one of the most beautiful locations on earth.  I'll be joined by my friend Reed Hoffmann, another Nikon professional providing excellent instruction during the trip.  I've traveled throughout S.E. Asia many times during my career, by far it is my favorite part of the world.

Here are just a few travel tips to think about when planning your trip:

1. Pack light!  One of my favorite lenses to travel with is my 28mm-300mm lens and my 16mm-35mm.  This allows me to get all the coverage I need for travel photography.

2. Pack a lightweight tripod for those low light photo opportunities.  We’ll be photographing 600 year old temples at both sunrise/sunset and a tripod will come in handy.

3.  After shooting those iconic images, move in close and look for those special detail shots that tell the full story of your visit.

4.  Think before you shoot!  Often we are overwhelmed by the scene before use, particularly when we travel.  Slow down, let your eye scan the entire frame and avoid distracting elements.

I’m looking forward to photographing the colorful “Floating Market at Damnoen Saduak”  This market is full of vegetables and fruit venders and other food items selling their goods from there canoes in narrow canals.  This will be an opportunity to create some absolutely stunning photos.

I sure hope you'll join me on this trek.  If you have more questions regarding this Trek contact the Mentor Series.
