After doing a Sunset and Sunrise tour last year with Etienne and loving it so much I booked the tours again when I was in Hoi An this year. Etienne inspired me on my first visits to become more aware of my camera settings and to 'get off auto'! Through his encouragement I haven't shot in auto since my first... More

I Was reminded of some basic photography tips to improve my camera skills and be more confident with my camera. A great country to learn and practice my skills. The tour leader Etienne has a strong passion for all things photography and having a small group enables one on one time to capture great photos.

Amazing, was definitely a highlight of our trip. We bicycled through rural villages, boarded a boat to another rural are. We stopped of at several rural and fishing villages to meet the families and learn more about their daily life, while constantly clicking our cameras. Lunch was prepared by a Veitnamese family of 12, four generations. In their home on... More

My title says it. Again, I wasn't well when I did the photo tour but I still manged to enjoy it. Learned a few things that came in handy for the rest of my trip, only wish I could remember them now. That of course is the problem with photography, one must constantly use the camera, so everything becomes embedded... More

The tour provides a great opportunity to see a quaint fishing village and friendly Vietnamese fishers in the area. I didn't find that the tour guide Etienne seemed all that passionate about teaching us about photography; it felt like he was just going through the motions. He seemed to latch on to a few 'favourites' in the group (none of... More

Hello Donnie, I am sorry to read that you felt left out on the tour you joined. I do try my best to adapt the photo workshops to every participant as much as I can, even though everyone has different levels. And I doubt this has to do with the gender of the participants... More

Be prepared to get up early for photo trip to fishing village. You leave Hoi An about 4.45 am but its worth it. Saw an amazing sun rise on ferry over to village. Great photo ops in Village. John our guide gave help and tuition when needed but more than anything gives confidence to get in to situations where you... More

We recently joined a tour during our stay in Vietnam - and it was a real highlight. John conducted the tour and it was nicely balanced with some technical knowledge - along with plenty of creative opportunities for us to experiment. John explained how to approach locals without offending them, as well as guiding us through some gorgeous landscapes and... More

John was amazing. We all learnt how to work our cameras and they were all different Then we took a lovely boat trip to a small local village. We learnt how to compose our photos and got to see and inter react with some real local people. It was wonderful to learn how to take the photos you'd always dreamed... More

This was a great way to see village life and refine some photography skills. John led the workshop that I signed up for and I thought he was excellent - very patient and modest. The tour is oriented toward learning how to engage with the people in the village and getting good candid shots, rather than more technical skills, so... More
