National Geographic photographer William Albert Allard to teach in Bangkok


National Geographic photographer, William Albert Allard, will be teaching a photography workshop in Thailand in January, 2015. This is the first time that the photographer, who has been working for National Geographic for over fifty years, will have taught in Asia.

Allard will team up with fellow photographers, Gavin Gough and Jack Kurtz to teach an intensive, five-day workshop in Bangkok. Participants will have the opportunity to shoot and create a story of their choosing in the city, with daily review and critique sessions from the three experienced, professional photographers.

William Albert Allard is widely known for his pioneering use of colour, creating many of the images that the National Geographic magazine has become famous for.

Workshop organiser, Travel Photographer Gavin Gough, studied with Allard in Italy this summer and says of the photographer, “His intimate portraits and street scenes have given him an iconic reputation and his many years of experience mean that he’s perfectly-placed to offer keen photographers a wealth of valuable advice. Allard is a great storyteller and his passion and dedication are clear to see, making him a great source of inspiration. We expect the workshop participants to enjoy a memorable and productive week.”

Allard says that he’s looking forward to returning to Bangkok, where he once photographed on assignment for National Geographic.

The “Beyond the Frame Photography Workshop” with William Albert Allard will take place in Bangkok from 23rd to 28th January, 2015. Prices are $2,950 with single occupancy accommodation and $2,450 without accommodation.
