Khlong Thoey Urban Street Photo Walk
A couple of weeks ago I did the Khlong Thoey Urban Street Photo Walk with Tim, I booked this as a private session as oppose to joining a group as this was the best option for me as I am an experienced photographer. Prior to doing the walk Tim had been in regular contact and was extremely efficient in getting back to me with answers, very reassuring prior to heading out to Bangkok.
Whilst I am an experienced photographer I have always been somewhat shy with street photography and missed many opportunities for shots over the years, so not only was I looking to enjoy the walk but to gain some confidence with approaching people in a non-offensive manner.
Ok, so how did it all go........one word.......awesome!!!
The walk was brilliant, I saw sights and people that I never thought possible. Tim's knowledge and approach is excellent.....plus he is a good laugh so I really enjoyed his company. We had a good walk around a big authentic market that sold just about every kind of meat, fish and veg, brilliant photo opportunities here. Nothing was rushed and I had ample time to take any photos I wanted. Within a very short time I was asking anybody with an interesting face for a photo, I continued this for the remainder of my holiday and not just the walk.
I cant recommend this enough, worth every penny and you will get the chance to see a side of Bangkok that not only pulls on the heart strings but also reminds us that we don't really have any decent excuses to complain living where we do.
Finally, whilst Tim and the walk were both brilliant, the icing on the cake were the wonderful Thai people who have very little yet always wear a big friendly smile.
