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

This is my third time doing this tour. What I like about it most is that you leave busy Hoi An and see another side to Vietnam that most tourists don't get to see. The tour covers the technical side of photography as well as framing and how to engage with your subject, even if you can't speak the language.... More

My husband and I did the morning tour to the fishing village. Etienne was very informative and I finally got to a stage where my great camera was not on auto. Thank you Etienne. I also did the afternoon tour to the rice fields and both tours were well worth the money paid. Would certainly book another tour if we... More

Etienne is an excellent photographer who also happens to be a great teacher with tons of patience. I know that because I m a beginner photographer, and he has had to use that patience frequently with me :) So far I have attended two of his workshops in Central Vietnam, and I liked them so much that in 2015 I...

Just completed two different tours with Etienne again in Hoi An. I first met Etienne fours years ago, and this time I did the same fishing village trip and saw some familiar faces, but in the afternoon we went out in to the rice fields. Amazing sights you just would not get to see on your own - plus we... More

This was so good. Etienne makes you really question what you are intending with your photography and helps you understand how to get it. I'm a truly beginner and this was an eye opener. Plus the ease Etienne has with the local people helps you to feel a bit more at ease with your exercise. And allows for beautiful smiles.... More

I consider myself an immediate level photo-enthusiast who loves taking pictures as a hobby. After watching a video in his website, it looked like the classes were filled with mostly beginners who were just starting out in photography. I was skeptical if this would be worth the time & money. I booked a tour with Etienne with the sole purpose... More

I spent a morning at the local fishing village with Etienne in January...and the experience was wonderful. Etienne not only coached me on camera settings and composition; he helped me to really SEE with a photographer's eyes. The village is not at all "touristy"; you're seeing the real Viet Nam. But Etienne has built trust among the community; so they... More
