I highly recommend ajmal — if you have any trouble reaching him by phone or email, you can find him at the Everest Guest House, street ten (“sarak da”), Wazir Akbar Khan, Kabul.

nayan,

as far as i know, you have to go through official channels in laos. as a communist country they have very strict regulations on visiting foreign journalists. if you are doing travel features (ie: nothing political) you can probably avoid this, and just work with a helpful local (sorry, don’t know anyone). but if you’re working on anything that’s going to require special access or contact, then you’ll most likely have to go through the laos ministry of foreign affairs, and get a government fixer, who will most likely be expensive and not very good. note: i think they’re especially uptight these days after coverage of the hmong guerillas the past few years.

anyway, try this guy: vincent gauthier. freelens_laos@hotmail.com
he’s a french photographer living in vientiane. maybe he can offer more helpful advice.

cheers,
julian
