Tokpa Korlo has spent his entire life in the epicenter of the Buddhist world. He has created a unique blend of Eastern art and stylish documentary in his photos and short films. These have attracted attention in his ever-growing international social media presence.
As a restless globetrotter, Tokpa has developed and refined unique abilities, both in terms of his photographic style and the way he approaches travel.
From the high mountains of Nepal or Ladakh to the jungles of Southeast Asia; from the snow-covered plains of Mongolia to the dark streets of Asia’s megacities; Tokpa Korlo is at home here, taking the essence of travel as an opportunity to practice mindfulness and compassion.
From a photographic point of view, Tokpa shows you how to really see the environment around, training you in fearless art, sacred architecture and bridging the gap between cultures, traditions, and colour.
From landscapes to portraits, action, documentary and reportage, Tokpa’s approach to photography is more adventure seeking than traditional, and his blend of humour and positive energy have earned him a following of other “life seekers.” For him, the entire idea of photography is to pursue the expression of who we really are — what moves us, what inspires us.
As a photo editor, Tokpa pushes the limits of what we could ever expect from our work. Plus, he brings this unique and expert knowledge to his students in Lightroom training groups all over the world.
As a Photography Tour Leader, he imparts his love for travel, adventure, and self-discovery as an artist and explorer to all who accompany him.
And after a long day of adventure and shooting, you’ll always find him sharing a tea and a training chat with his students, looking through day’s shots and seeing how far they can be pushed to unleash the true creativity and potential inside of them.
Tokpa Korlo has created a unique style of photography that is possible to experience with your heart. Thanks to his honesty, his work has gained worldwide attention.
Tokpa’s productions are a labor of love. It means the world to him — he has dedicated his life to this ideal.
Both Windhorse Rising (his work with NGOs and charity groups) and his Dharma Imagery Project (his work with the Buddhist world) was created for the single purpose to share inspiration, devotion, joy, and gratitude to all.
