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

Wasn't really what was advertised. We took the sunset tour. John was friendly but having read others reviews expected some attention but didn't get any. No drink provided at the village we bought our own. Extremely hot weather and really needed that drink. Great to see a village and got some great shots. Would have rated higher if we had... More

I took part in the photo tour a couple of weeks ago and it will be one of brightest experience of my month long trip. The photos were the best. You do not need much photo knowledge as they provide an overview and teach along the way. This trip is so unique as you are shooting in a vibrant busy... More

The depth of knowledge gained from John, coupled with wonderful early morning photo opportunities means I go home with the very best photographic memories of Hoi An. There is no way I would have gained access to the fishing village without him. Thank you John.

We took the sunrise package. My wife & myself enjoyed the trip tremendously. John provided a good overview of the camera settings & compositions. During our boat trip & practice sessions in the fishing village, more useful guidance was given on how to take good shots. Lighting & positioning advise was shared & discussed. John is knowledgeable on the subject... More
