Hotel was in a lovely location but apart from that I was not impressed with this place. The rooms were clean but overall everything was a bit old and tired. The staff were not particularly friendly and it felt like they couldn't really be bothered. This was the worse hotel we stopped at in Vietnam. Wouldn't recommend it and wouldn't... More

We wandered by Etienne's gallery and decided to sign up for his sunrise tour thinking it would be a cool way to see sunrise. We got SOOO... much more out of it than a cool sunrise! We both feel like we know how to use our cameras much better and how to better compose photographs. We have also traveled to... More

A great sunrise photography tour in Hoi An. There were just three of us, so plenty of time to ask questions and get advice. I'm a beginner with only a little compact with me while travelling, while the other two customers had an SLR and were more experienced (or at least appeared that way in conversation). This wasn't a problem... More

I took the sunrise photo tour with Etienne and there really aren't words to describe how truly memorable the experience was. We went to a nearby fish market for the sunrise trading session and it was so exciting to be in an environment unspoiled by tourism. Etienne was patient with everyone in the group regardless of their photography experience. In... More

I haven't been prone to writing reviews in the past, often thought I would but then never get around to it..in fact this is my first post. The early morning 'Sunrise' trip however outshines anything special that I have done on holidays in the past. Its an early start, goes without saying, but Im used to that. Etienne has everything...

My husband and I spent an afternoon into evening with Etienne and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Etienne is well versed in camera technique and shares what he knows readily. He took us to a small village by boat where we got off the tourist path and truly got to experience the people who live in the village. Etienne loves people and... More

My wife and I completed the sunrise tour in Hoi An yesterday morning and it was a great experience. Etienne is both fun to hang around with and a true professional. Never afraid to go to great lengths to share his passion and help people feel comfortable so that they can unleash their creative talents. Etienne knows Hoi An,Vietnam and... More

We have attended Etienne's sunrise photography workshop. Etienne is a very knowledgeable photographer and his tour takes you to places where you can experience the real Vietnam. Totally recommended and definitely worth waking up at an odd hour. Etienne's experience definitely pays off in amazing photo opportunities as well as a lovely experience in getting together with other photography enthusiasts... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip and our experience resulted in some fantastic photographs. Etienne's relationship with the local people enables you to get close to them and learn more about their homes, workplaces and lives in Hoi An. However, there are a few things I feel need to be mentioned to give Etienne some constructive feedback for future classes: I... More

Hello Sarah, and thanks for your honest feedback. I understand that the camera settings workshop is happening quite fast at the moment, as this is the end of winter and the sun is rising earlier. But I do believe that I spend time with each student while on location making sure they understand their camera settings. Of course 15 minutes... More
