My husband and I joined a small group for the "Sunrise with fishermen" tour. It's well worth it rising before the birds in the morning. Very fun to meet the locals and see the busy harbour when the fishermen come in with their catch. I learned a lot about camera settings and how to compose good photos. Very interesting lesson...

Improve your photography skills and experience Vietnam outside the tourist drag. Etienne catered for all of us from total novices to those with far more experience and I have some wonderful photos that I wouldn't have had the courage to take without him. I'd be keen to try the three day workshop too.

Etienne, a French guy who has been living in Vietnam for more than 10years. He can show you the places, where you can get a memorable photos. If you like street photography, you'll definitely gotta join this. Even if you have been shooting other types of photography, you'll also eventually.

4.45 a.m. collection from Hotel by Etienne - and the start of a great photography lesson and experience at a local fishing village. Etienne has a great rapport with the locals so "getting up close and personal" wasn't an issue and we met and photographed some wonderful Vietnamese and fishing scenes.. Etienne was extremely helpful with me (a real amateur)... More

I did the afternoon tour, up the river & into the villages. It was a great way to meet & photograph the local people, literally out in the fields. Etienne is a great guide, challenges you to get better shots & provides brilliant opportunities for wonderful scenes & subjects. If you love photography & are visiting Hoi An, this tour... More

A groups of four of us were in Hoi An in January 2015, and met etienne at our hotel. Two of us signed up for the half day trip with a bit of uncertainty about getting up at 4am, but it was one of the best parts of our entire trip in Vietnam! He was a very clear teacher, gave... More

I did both the sunrise and sunset tour with Etienne. Both were spectacular and both exceeded my expectations in being truly amazing. Etienne provided individual attention to all people on the tour. Best thing about the tour is that he takes you to absolute non-tourist places to photograph real people and places. The fishing village allowed for some great scenery.... More

I am a beginner photographer and Etienne helped me with the functions on my camera that I've not had time at home to look into. He did not make it obvious to the other photographers that I was new to these skills. ( Yes I have been practicing Etienne!) I did the sunrise tour at a fishing village which was... More

Four professional photographers needed a connection with where to photograph around Hoi An. Etienne had a great handle on a fishing village as a wonderful location at sunrise. One of the images from that session has already been displayed in a Photogrphy show in Knoxville TN. Etienne, was easy going, and had advice for all levels of photographers. Money well... More

I cannot recommend this tour high enough. It was literally the highlight of our visit to Vietnam. I am seriously into photography and try to do a photo workshop / tour when ever travel. This one is in the top 3 I've done around the world. We booked both the sunrise workshop around the fish market and the sunset workshop... More
