The beautiful photos of wildlife and nature by famed Thai photographer and documentary director Baramee Teboonkiat give everyone the chance to get up close and personal with wildlife in their natural habitat. His close ups of animal faces, from the amazing owl eyes to buffalo. Longer range shots show the animals in their habitats and offer a glimpse into the lives they lead.
Baramee has filmed for the Nat Geo channel and loves to focus his lens on Thai animals in their native habitats. He spoke at length at the workshop held at Promenada on June 12, 2014 discussing the specific techniques, lens and other technical details used in each shot to an enthralled crowd of photographers. He explained that the quality of the photo was more important than the quantity, it is better to view the scene and look for something new and unique.
The photos on display are amazing shots that are well worth the visit to Promenada to view. This talented wildlife photographer is a vocal defendant of the Thai environment and has been outspoken in his opposition to the Mae Wong dam to be located in the Mae Wong National Park which will eliminate over 17 sq km of low lying forest. His photos show his love of nature and wildlife and inspire others to join in the move to protect Thailand’s natural treasures.
The exhibition is on display in building A at Promenada Resort Mall until June 30, 2014.

The close up of an owl is stunning for its detail.

His scenery photos are also stunning, featuring the animals in their native habitats.
