The Datai Landscape Photography Workshop

Learn new skills by joining our photography workshop with the award winning photographer SC Shekar and naturalist Irshad Mobarak


We understand a picture says a thousand words. With years of experience as a photojournalist as well as executing elaborate commercial and aerial shoots, SC Shekar will help you deliver the thousand words you would like to express through your photography.

Join our exclusive photography workshop from 26 to 30 October 2022, limited to eight participants only, and receive in-depth one-on-one guidance on how to capture images that will move your audience. Irshad Mobarak, famous Langkawi naturalist, will accompany the photography excursions to explain interesting details about the island's nature, rich bio-diversity and geological significance.

Making sure you stay inspired, The Datai Langkawi's natural rainforest paradise setting will keep you in awe. You will be capturing images at the pristine white sandy beach, the serene and mystical Crystal Creek, the quiet mangroves, secret waterfalls, and many more eye-catching scenic spots around the resort and in the surrounding lush rainforests. Once your workshop is finished, your last day will see you choose the best photo from your hard work, and you will carry a printed high-resolution picture home with you.
