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 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

Etienne took us on an early morning tour to the local fishing village to give us a real cultural experience and share with us some very important tips for our photography. I can honestly say, I learnt more about photography techniques in that one morning and met some really lovely people. Lots of fun, great value and a tour that... More

9 of my family members took the sunrise tour together. Even though most of them are novoice photographer, most of them enjoyed a lot. Etienne was our guide, he tried to explain the basic for the team and then we took a coffee and took the fery to the fish market. Everyone there were so friendly and they were willing... More
