I went on the sunrise tour with Etienne. Even though I knew Hoian quite well, it wasn't a trip I could have managed to sort out on my own - certainly not on the first occasion anyway .Etienne is a very good facilitator and was capable of supporting a group with a range of previous photography experience. I came away... More

I did the sunrise tour, very early start but the only way to get the "golden hour" of photography. Etienne was very friendly and hand on, answering any questions as the morning went on and giving group briefings as often as possible. We had a rather large group - about 12 people so the pick-up route took quite some time,... More

Thanks Etienne for a fantastic morning. As a novice photographer in a group of 6, 4 of which were much more experienced than me, I learnt so much. Your instructions were concise and easy to understand. We had plenty of time practise the new skills. I particularly liked how you gave us time and space to do our own thing,... More

I did the sunrise photo tour with Etienne. There were two others, so the group was friendly, small and with plenty of time for individual attention. Normally my SLR is just on auto , but he discussed manual settings and the importance of light and composition. We headed off on a boat ride and photo shoot amongst the local fishing... More

Went to the office and booked the sunrisetour for the following morning. He was supposed to pick me up at my hotel at 04.45, but he never showed up. He should at least have contacted the hotel to informe me if the tour was canceled. That way I wouldn't have to get up at 04.15 in the morning for no... More

Having done a short course and felt that i'd learned nothing, I didn't know what to expect from a mere few hours on this one. However, I think I learned a lot. 1) etienne Breaks the teaching down in the morning tour to a few main points: working in manual and concentrating on ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. Practising as... More

I was so excited when I read about these photo tours - I booked for a morning tour and wait listed for an afternoon tour - lucky me - Etienne contacted me and I was able to do both sunrise and sunset tours. I have done several photo classes/workshops and managed to learn .. well nothing ... and feel completely... More

We'll worth the tour, even if your not that good of a photographer. We did both tours , the sunrise tour to a fishing village, then we went on the afternoon tour to a local village. We both learnt a lot about our cameras, even if you didn't want to learn about your camera it was a great experience, to... More

A unique experience and I would recommend it for photographers and non-photographers alike. From the "workshop" part of the tour, I found Etienne to be patient and easy to talk with, answering all my questions and setting me up with solid advice for the future. From the "cultural" side of the tour, it was an amazing experience to mingle with... More
