At the end of 2011, just two days after quitting my full-time job, I spent five weeks traveling in Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia with my good buddy Lindsay Matush. I filmed a ton of video clips with no real purpose or intention, and after more than two years of the footage sitting on my hard drive I finally decided to sift through the four hours of video to put together this 15 minute montage. Getting to relive this journey through the footage was priceless, and I’m glad I finally buckled down and got this done!
Over the past few months I’ve posted more than 15 photo galleries from my travels in Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia. However, even when I broke down hundreds of images into all those themes and galleries I still had more than 20 photos left over that I wanted to share, so here is the final set of the ones that didn’t fit anywhere else.
While traveling throughout Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia last year I was able to see more beautiful sunrises and sunsets than I could count, so of course I took every opportunity I could to shoot photos of them. From beaches to rivers and from mountains to temples, here are nine of my favorite sunrise and sunset photos I shot in South East Asia.
If you’ve been following my blog at all over the past several months then you know I’ve posted a ton of photos from my trip to South East Asia. Well, today I’m extremely excited to post this gallery because it has some of my favorite photos from the trip of some of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to. Click through and enjoy these 10 incredible images of waterfalls I shot in various parts of Thailand.
You can’t begin to understand a new culture without meeting people from all walks of life within it. While traveling around Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia last year I got the privilege to meet and shoot photos of people everywhere I went, and this gallery contains 23 of my favorites.
Long-tail boats are extremely common throughout South East Asia, especially around the islands and beach towns in Southern Thailand. The combination of the vessels and amazing waterscapes make for incredible photo opportunities. Here are 14 beautiful photos I shot of various boats in while traveling in Thailand last December.
When traveling in South East Asia, the biggest tourist attractions are always temples (locally called wats), so naturally while I was venturing throughout Thailand and Cambodia I visited more than a few and shot hundreds of photos along the way. Here are 21 of my favorites including images from the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, White Temple, Angkor Wat, and more.
Markets are a way of life in many places around the world, and when traveling to foreign countries I love to wonder through them to get a glimpse of a culture’s daily life that is so different from my own. Here are 10 interesting photos I shot in various markets throughout Thailand and Cambodia.
The beaches surrounding the islands in the south of Thailand are some of the most amazing landscapes you can ever hope to see. I shot most of these photos on the island of Koh Phi Phi, but some were taken near Tonsai Bay and Railay. Grab a coconut, sit back in a hammock, and click through these 14 beautiful beach scenes. Kob kun krab!
Part of what I enjoy about traveling is getting to try out new foods that a culture has to offer, and as my luck would have it, South East Asia had a ton of crazy new delicacies for me to sink my teeth into. Here’s a quick list of some of the weird things I ate on my trip to Thailand and Cambodia last December along with a bunch of photos to help your eyes digest it all…
– A variety of insects including crickets, various sized grasshoppers, a mealworm, a grub, and a cockroach.
– Fried chicken tendons.
– Grilled chicken intestines, feet, hearts, and head.
– Boiled duck egg fetus.
– Shark fin soup.
– Fried and soft boiled quail egg.
– Grilled snake, frog, and squid.
– Dog curry and grilled dog.
(Plus tons of other traditional local dishes, soups, and desserts.)
One of Bangkok’s most popular tourist attractions is the Grand Palace, home of the famous “Emerald Buddha.” The 18th century temple complex sprawls across more than 50 acres, so trying to do the architecture justice in photographs is nearly impossible without a helicopter. While I was walking around the grounds at the beginning of my five-week South East Asia trip last December I decided to focus on some of the smaller elements instead of trying to capture how massive the place was. The result of my attention to detail is this gallery of 15 patterns and textures from Thailand’s Grand Palace.
