Thai and English language

Sawasdee khrap, my name is Siebe. I am a wedding photographer. I live and work in the Netherlands. When my work allows I come to photograph in Thailand.

Hi there…

My name is Emmanuel (Emm). I am engaged in several photography genres and the creation of short videos. I work on my own. Now and then I work together with Siebe, when he is able to come to Thailand. Chitlada helps me with the Thai language, when necessary.


In Thailand, I mainly picture the public appearance of people seen at national festivals or similar events. The frames image what I observe on the street. I picture people that join the festival parade and wear traditional Thai clothing, people that watch the parade, people that work at the market stalls set up during the festivals, and people that visit these markets. Other times, I picture people in their residence or in my small photo studio, with the use of artificial light, backdrops, and more.


With my photography I aim to document the spirit of Life in the Mekong River region/ Thailand. Purpose is to enrich human understanding of social behavior on a broader level
