This was so much fun. Jean was a fantastic tour guide who helped us take better pictures through practical examples and explanations. It was a pleasure speaking with him and learning more about photography and his time in Vietnam. We will definitely be trying one of their other tours while we're here!

I have attended Advanced Sunrise Photography with Etienne in August 2022 with the intent to reinvigorate my interests in photography. Especially after 2 years into the pandemic without practise. Etienne was the most passionate teacher I have met. His enthusiasm and excitement can be rather infectious and has that carryover effect to my own. Despite having over 15 years of experiences myself, I have picked up a crucial metering technique that allows me to photograph even faster and not miss the decisive moment. The refreshers Etienne provided were invaluable especially since there was a practical to go along. The location we went to was bustling with activities. There were no shortages of photography opportunities with some amazing lights. We were the only 2 taking photos there… any more than that, other photographers would get into your shots so this is something that best to be done 1 to 1, or 2 pax the most I would think. The only advise I would add is to be prepare to wipe down your equipment since getting seawater on your gears would be unavoidable. Etienne was there not just as a coach, he was also your fixer and somebody who has developed strong bonds with the people in the area. This experience was expertly curated. Nothing was staged and the care taken not to disrupt activities and empathy towards your subject feelings were considered. This was one thing which I appreciate most especially in a day and age where photo workshops are packed with staged conceptual photography and everyone took the same googleable photos. Surely the concept and compositions were not owned by the photographers but by the concept artist. I will be looking at your tours with great enthusiasm and cannot recommend Hoi An Photo Tours highly enough!

Had a great tour with Etienne, I was a photography beginner but it did not matter. Etienne helped me with some of the basics of photography to set me on the right path. It was a friendly tour with some great photo opportunities and would recommend to anyone at any level of photography

Fantastic tour with Etienne, definitely worth the early rise. He proved to be very knowledgable, great instructor and definitely has built a great rapport with the local fishermen over the years that make them much more open to us photographing them even close. Loved the morning lights, the variety of subjects and the colors.

I was guided by Jean on a morning photography tour around Hoi An Old Town. Jean took the time to re-acquaint me with working with my camera off auto and was very patient with me. I learnt so much, particularly about perspective and sitting to wait for photo opportunities. I took some great shots but even more importantly felt excited to be taking photos again after a few years break. Hope to take another tour again!
