I truly couldn’t recommend James de la Cloche, of DLC photo tours for your photo adventures more.
How special it was to work with such a mindful, humble and kind human being and on top of it get amazing pictures like these!

And in the most professional & entertaining way. James is our expert photographer and long term Chiang Mai resident. Let him share his wealth of knowledge and amusing anecdotes about life in ‘The Land of Smiles’.  At the same time he will take amazing photo memories for you.
