It's been a few years since I last travelled in Laos, and I wanted to show my good friend Ian Rolfe what makes it such a special place. Ian liked it so much we decided to come back again next year and run a special workshop for photographers. Drop me a line if you're interested in going on the list.
Have a look at the brochure for our Laos Photography Workshop in January 2018:

This set of images was shot using the Lumix G85, a modest sized camera that uses the Micro Four-Thirds format lenses. My choice of lenses are the 12mm f/1.4 and the 25mm f/1.4, giving me access to some shallow depth of field shooting and the luxury of packing a very small kit for the road.

Ewen Bell's other website is called "Photography for Travellers", an online guide rich in features both practical and philosophical. Field guides to wonderful locations, insights into techniques plus inspiring idea to help you think differently about the art of photography.
Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
