Jonathan Taylor founded Photography School Asia in 2005. He is dedicated to teaching photography and instilling in his students the passion for the subject that he has himself. The school soon became Asia’s premier photo-school. Attracting students from around the world. The location of the original school is conveniently situated in the heart of Bangkok. Just opposite Hua Lampong, Bangkok’s central railway station. It has fantastic facilities, including a fully working professional photography studio, a large screen monitor for slideshows and critique sessions, a full photographic book library, iMacs for post product – Photoshop and Lightroom etc. The building the school is housed in, is also a gallery, so has a very artistic feel to it. Being on the edge of Bangkok’s bustling China Town District, opposite the vibrant Hua Lampong Railway Station and the surround rail-side communities, near the river and just across from Thonburi and the local Thai communities there. Study with us and you will be taken to some great photogenic locations, they offer too much photographic wealth to be missed.
Jonathan has also opened a branch of the school in the beautiful world heritage protected town of Siem Reap, Cambodia. From there you can photograph the amazing ancient temples of Angkor or visit thriving fishing villages, dotted actually on the huge Tonle Sap Lake. There are both floating villages as well as some sitting on long bamboo pools to keep them out of the water. The school now also offers tours in mainland China.
A fascinating Hong Kong Photography Walk is also now available and very popular with tourist and locals who want to see the often hidden parts of the city, while improving their photography dramatically.
