Kah-Wei is a great drone and photo instructor who helped me make enormous progress in my piloting capabilities. Not only is he super knowledgeable, he is incredibly well prepared and his location scouting is second to none.
The trip with Kah-Wai and Matt to Death Valley was great. They planned where we could go and drove us to the locations. Every day we were taken to at least two places to shoot. Both the photographers are very experienced and a great resource on how to take pictures.
I had been to Death Valley twice, as recent as one year ago. Then I found Kah-Wai. I compared my lackluster photos of DV to his, and I knew I had to go back with him. Kai-Wai helped me with settings but mostly composition. He has a keen eye and a creative mind. He's brilliant on so many levels. He is very approachable for questions and always has helpful, inspiring suggestions.
I have been on two photography tours with Kah-Wai. I intend to be a "frequent flyer" with Kah-Wai. Go on a tour. You won't be disappointed.
Superlative would be the best way to describe the Utah Badlands workshop. Kah-Wai and Siggy's leadership and attention were unrivaled. The days locations were well planned out. They were available for any questions and made many helpful suggestions. I would highly recommend their workshops to anyone
I attended a photography workshop led by Kah-Wai in Lofoten, Norway in 2000. It was an outstanding experience. Kah-Wai is an excellent teacher and tour leader. His attention is focused on providing his clients with incredible locations and helping them develop their photography skills and vision to make the most of the photographic opportunity before them.
Experienced, laid-back, pleasant introvert...That would be Kahwai (pronounced like the Hawaiian island of Kauai). I met him October 2021 during a 5 day photo tour of the cypress swamps in TX and LA. The group was small but cohesive. Why did I give 4 instead of 5 stars? KW is not someone who is breathing down your neck. If you need help or have questions, ASK HIM. Once you do, he is there for you. Granted, what made his situation odd on the cypress tour was that we were in 2 small boats so we couldn't move around individually.
One thing, KEEP AN EYE ON HIS WEBSITE as he adds new trips all the time! I look forward to my next trip with him....hopefully somewhere international outside of the US.
My background: an avid shooter since the '90s whose main interest is travel photography.
Stay healthy and keep your passport current!
I joined Dr Lin's trip to Faroe Island in 2019. It's one of most memorable and fruitful photography trips I experienced. Dr Lin is very professional in planning the sites for photography. He took very good care of us, making sure that we were safe, he was always the last one to leave the sites. I also appreciated his generous sharing on photography. I gained a lot of understanding and had had opportunities to practise what he shared with us. Thank you very much Dr Lin.
