Travel Photographer Society (Kuala Lumpur) has announced its annual travel photography contest, as well as its schedule of unrivaled workshops.
The travel photography contest is known as TPS Awards 2017, and having seen and judged the 2016 entries, I can confirm that the quality of the submissions were spectacular...and I expect the 2017 submissions will surpass them. So submit your best work, and impress us all!
I am also pleased to invite photographers to enroll in my workshop "Storytelling With Photographs And Audio" during which I shall share my thoughts on how to weave still photography into stories, how to use ambient or other recorded audio to enhance the stories, and how to use these images and audio to produce cogent photo stories under the simulation of publishing deadlines.
The workshop will be from 27 April 2017 - 02 May 2017, and will push its participants to unleash their inner creativity by producing short (3 minutes) multimedia stories; whether documentary, street life or fictional. The underlying objective is to have fun in unleashing the participants' creative juices with no restraint.
While teaching this workshop in Kuala Lumpur earlier this year, I produced a totally fictional story of a man searching for a red-cheongsam clad woman in the Old China Cafe. A pure figment of my imagination triggered by two short visits to this well-known atmospheric establishment.
Other workshops will feature Dr. Shahidul Alam, Etienne Bossot (Travel Photography) and Calin Kruse (Design of a Photobook).
