What to Expect

Our most popular photo tour and workshop take you very early morning to capture the busy activity in a fishing village outside of Hoi An. Taking place in a very dynamic environment, the tour is focusing on people and documentary photography, using the best light of the day.
After a well-needed coffee and a workshop about camera settings, we will focus on composition and the way to approach people. All the people and activities provide a huge number of photo opportunities, a thing which is not available in the middle of the day.
After some time along the river capturing the fishermen bringing their catch, we step into the village with a relaxing atmosphere and work on portrait photography. We have built strong relationships with the local people over the years, making it easy to get to know them and capture them in their daily lives.
A delicious breakfast is then waiting for us in a relaxed coffee shop, where the workshop continues, mostly focusing on composition and tips for being more effective in Travel Photography.
We then continue deeper into the village to work on low light photography, before meeting locals in their environment.
We then get back in our minivan which will bring everyone back into their hotels. Expect t to be back before 9.30am.

Hi Josine, thanks for leaving the review. Sorry about the issue you experienced with your camera, but camera settings are not responsible for such "light beams" appearing on images. It usually comes from a faulty lens. or even a dirty lens. We are glad you...More
