ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This 2-day workshop is compactly designed to help participants gain an understanding of visual storytelling. Our goal is for you to be able to tell your own story through your own photos upon completing the programme.

Each participant will need to come up with an idea/keyword (for example; love, hate, pain, lost, etc) that they will use as the core idea for their own project throughout the workshop. We will start off with a brainstorm session to shape up the idea, mood and the art direction of each story before shooting. Then we will have the group reviewing session so that everyone can learn from each other’s project.

ABOUT EKKARAT PUNYATARA
Ekkarat Punyatara is National Geographic Thailand’s photo editor and staff photographer based in Bangkok, Thailand. His photography is inspired by fascination in Thai culture that he was rooted to since childhood by his conservative family. He had worked with National Geographic Thailand as a freelancer since his senior year in university. After which, he entered international photography scholarships, Foundry Photojournalism Workshop (2012) and Angkor Photo Workshop (2013). He first gained recognition for his photos in 2011 through a controversial project that questioned the traditionally conservative way of seeing Buddhism in Thailand by documenting a group of Thai monks living in New York. When not taking on worldwide assignments as an outsider, Ekkarat will be in his home country to portrait the lives of Thailand through the eyes of an insider.
