Steven Lee and Andy Cragg's first World Photography Travel Workshop landed the group in Kuching, Sarawak on a 10-Day photo-adventure. Visiting places like Satok market in Kuching, Semengoh Wildlife Centre, Sarawak Cultural Village and then the dramatic Batang Ai Hilton. Riding on longboats on a 2 hour up-river journey, the group stayed 4 nights at Borneo Adventure's jungle lodge at Nanga Sumpa longhouse. Amidst the flying beetles, mosquitoes, and kerosene lamps at night, slideshows of the best daily photographs were shown and critiqued. The group encountered a gentle Iban longhouse community, a departing ritual where a chicken and two wild pigs were slaughtered, and a refreshing swim at the local waterfall. The local rice wine (tuak) was free flowing also.
The group's photographic progress was simply astounding as can be seen in this album.
