Ladies and gents,
Things have been somewhat quiet on the Western Blog Front as of late – but not because I’ve been lacking. I’ve been at work behind the scenes with the Flash Light Photography Expeditions crew on our 2012 series of workshops – and they are going to be fantastic.
Dylan has already announced his latest Seoul and Busan workshops; if you’re going to be anywhere near Korea over the next little while, you owe it to yourself to check these out.
The real reason I’m posting today is to officially announce our 2012 Thailand Expedition series; this November and December we’re putting on one session in Chiang Mai, and one session in Ko Phi Phi. Things are going to get hot and sweaty.
Flash Light Photography Expeditions – Thailand 2012
November 27-29, 2012 – Chiang Mai
December 2-5, 2012 – Ko Phi Phi
This is South East Asia. This is Thailand like you’ve never seen it before. Join professional photojournalists Dylan Goldby and Flash Parker as they guide you across white sand beaches, over legendary karst peaks, and into the heart of ancient Thai culture on two unique Flash Light Photography expeditions. Craft stunning environmental portraits of Hmong, Yao, Karen, and other hill tribe villagers who make their home in the northern Thai jungles. Dig your heels into the soft sand at legendary Maya Bay, and frame up a perfect image of paradise as a longboat languishes on the slowly lapping waves. Explore the endless verdant jungles of the north while tracking elephants, tigers, and other exotic fauna before returning to civilization for an exhilarating street shooting expedition through some of the country’s most exciting bazaars and open markets.
We are offering two unique courses on this expedition; a three-day Chiang Mai excursion, and a four-day island adventure that will take us from Phuket to Ko Phi Phi and finally to exotic Maya Bay. Between stratospheric adventures, culinary swashbuckling and capturing the decisive moment, your guides will provide critique sessions and seminars that will help you get the most from your equipment, and your natural talents, day in and day out. Join us for one or both of the sessions this November. Dylan and Flash will teach you how to hone your landscape photography skills, how to get the most out of your off-camera flash while shooting on location, and how to craft stunning environmental portraits that tell a unique story about Thailand. When you finally pack your bags for that long voyage home, you will be carrying with you a portfolio of remarkable images, the penultimate representation of all the mystery and splendor of remarkable Thailand.
Art Imitating Life
Photography is an art. To be a successful artist, you need three things: tools, technique and inspiration. With this series of workshops we plan on giving you the tools you need to create the images you envision, teach you the techniques needed to realize that vision and inspire you to get out and create.

Sounds like fun, right? We think so, and we hope to have you with us for a little fun in the sun this winter. But just in case you needed an incentive to join us, we’re throwing a curveball into the game. Flash Light Photography Expeditions has partnered with South East Asia Backpacker Magazine to put on this workshop series, and we’re running one heck of a contest in celebration. Because that’s how we roll.
I know that there is no better feeling as a travel photographer than the day you get a magazine in the mail and see your work plastered all over it. That’s why we’re giving everyone the chance to see their work in print – on the front cover of South East Asia Backpacker Magazine, no less.
The contest will be officially announced in an upcoming issue of the magazine, but it can’t hurt to whet your appetite right now, right? The winner of our photography contest will get to see their image on the cover of SEA Backpacker, and they’ll also win a spot on the Thai workshop of their choosing. That’s right – we’re giving away one of our coveted expedition seats.
Get out there, get shooting, and get ready to share your images with us – we want the world to see what you can do.
