Providing the highest standard of photography training is our goal. Helping you meet your objectives of becoming a better photographer is how we plan to help. We share in the passion of you fulfilling your creative dreams.

When your desire is combined with our instruction, your photography skills will shine through. The true value of our classes is a lifelong experience you will enjoy every time you get behind the lens of your camera.

We have helped many people achieve their goals of becoming better photographers with the help of hands-on training. Theory put to use is the method in which our students have come to trust. Conventional methodology is based on the concept of memorization so you can merely pass a test, but we do not subscribe to that method. The only test you will have is challenging yourself to apply the techniques you have learned and put them to the test.

Using a peer to peer approach, we help each other become better photographers and more proficient at our skills.

Come join us and be part our our welcoming team of photographers. We offer a place to grow and have fun, while learning photography in a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere.

Our instructors are knowledgeable on many makes and models of camera gear. We recommend that you purchase a camera with more than AUTO mode to get the most from our workshops. Bring your camera to class and we will be able to get started with your new camera.

We would suggest that you take either the beginner or intermediate classes. Both photography levels offer a wide array of hands-on lessons that will equip you with a better knowledge of photography.

Our advanced photography workshops cover:

Is there a prerequisite to take the advanced photographer classes?

If you are unsure I would recommend starting with one of the beginner – novice photography workshop.

Will I be graded or receive a certificate for the photographer class?
Our staff will not grade you on work, however we recommend that you sign up for the critiquing that is offered. We will give constructive reviews of what you have shown in grasping the concepts through a portfolio review. This is strictly a volunteer basis and your review is held with the utmost confidentiality. A certificate of completion will be given to all students that participate In these photography courses.

Thailand_"Photo World Tours", photography, "guided tours"Photo World Tours is a unique company specializing in personal photography tours being taught by professional photographers and customized for the beginner to advanced photographer.

Created by a husband and wife team Bryan & Rebecca Lang, Photo World Tours is located in five of the most influential and interesting cities in America. Sharing the photographic vision with others is what this photography tour company is founded on. From a local prospective, our company guides and teaches our guests what to look for, and how to help improve your photographic skills in the process.

For the last two decades, award-winning photographer & author, Rebecca Lang, one of the many Photo World Tour guides, has explored and photographed three continents and has taught many photographers how to sharpen their photographic skills through touring to unusual places. When the element of familiarity is removed, the photographer explore different ways to look at things.

I think of myself as an explorer who has spent his life on a long voyage of discovery.” – Paul Strand – From Aperture article on Paul Strand.

I am a full-time explorer of all things interesting” Rebecca Lang

Hands-on approach to teaching how to see the light is one of Photo World Tours’ main focuses. A deeper meaning emerges as you, the photographer, explores what it is like to really look and see through the lens of your camera. No longer the “spray & pray” method of photography. Many of the photography methods employed are tried and true lessons share by decades of photographic work. Sharing your passion for the people, places and things will be discussed to better customize your style of photography. Have your photography skills shine with guided direction.

It is part of the photographer’s job to see more intensely than most people do. He must have and keep in him something of the receptiveness of the child who looks at the world for the first time or of the traveller who enters a strange country.” – Bill Brandt

A hint of the unusual…your photography guide will take you to the places that are frequented by the locals. Share in the deep culture and traditions that are offer by exploring something different. Open your mind and your photographic eye will follow.

The photographer was thought to be an acute but non-interfering observer – a scribe, not a poet. But as people quickly discovered that nobody takes the same picture of the same thing, the supposition that cameras furnish an impersonal, objective image yielded to the fact that photographs are evidence not only of what’s there but of what an individual sees, not just a record but an evaluation of the world. It became clear that there was not just a simple activity called seeing (recorded by, aided by cameras) but ‘photographic seeing’, which was both a new way for people to see and a new activity for them to perform.” – Susan Sontag, On Photography by Susan Sontag , ISBN: 0385267061 , Page: 88

Take a photography vacation instead of buying new camera equipment. The art of picture taking is in the eye of the participant. The more you push the boundaries and travel the better your photos will become.
