PMPE Stage 1, 2 Days Photography Workshop on 16th to 17th July 2011

Thank you very much for your support for this PhotoMalaysia PhotoSafari Experience (PMPE) program. We have conducted this program for about two years. More than 250 participants have benefited from our Stage 1, 2 days photography workshop and about 100 participants have joined us in our Stage 2 program. We have conducted no less than 10 photography photo safaris ranging from countries like Cambodia, Vietnam, Nepal, Indonesia, Bangladesh and China. We are very encouraged by the results and progress we get from the participants.

PMPE has successfully held an Exhibition, “Shunder Bangladesh” in Nikon Centre from 1st of May to 30th June 2011.
This will be an exciting year as we are also planning some of these trips in collaboration with our Crossing Bridges partners. There will be an exchange of ideas, cultures and styles in photography. This will inevitably improve the quality and standard of our photography.

We will be conducting our 2 days photography workshop independent of our photo trips so that more members can participate. These photography workshops are designed as an intensive crash course for taking your photography to a higher level. There will be something in it for beginners, intermediate and even advanced photographers. We hope to hold about 3 to 4 such workshops in 2011, and even if you do not attend the Stage 2 Photo Safari where all that you have learned in Stage 1 will be demonstrated in real time at an exotic photo shooting location, what you picked up at the workshop will become a solid foundation on which to build your future self-learning.

Stage Two is 5 to 7 days of 24/7 hands-on personal coaching on a PhotoSafari at an exotic location such as Vietnam, Cambodia, The Old Silk Road, Nepal, India, Philippines, Africa, etc.


Registration is now open. Send a pm or email to: [email protected] to book your place for the Workshop. Include your full name, telephone, email address, to facilitate communications. Further details and how to pay will be provided by return email once your application is accepted..

During the Photosafari trip, the Learning Points picked up in the workshop, will be re-explained, reinforced and demonstrated in real time 24/7 by the mentors on the PhotoSafari. You are assured of returning from the PhotoSafari a far better, and a much more sensitive photographer than at the start. Please click on the books images below to see the work of past participants who attended previous Workshops and Photosafaris. Several were newbies when they enrolled for the workshop and the photosafari, with a few buying their DSLR just days before going for the PhotoSafari. Their pictures in the publications below are testimony of the photographers they are now. Participants in this PhotoSafari will also have some of their pictures featured in a Coffee Table book to be published after the PhotoSafari.

We hope to announce the details of Stage 2 of the PMPE to Cebu City, Philippines very soon.
