Frederik Wissink

Frederik Wissink started his career as a professional photographer 11 years ago upon arriving in Saigon.

Starting out as an editorial photographer then moving up to Photo Editor, he has built an ever-evolving photography business that covers not only editorial clients such as the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times but moved to specialize in interior design and architectural photography with clients around South East Asia.

Frederik joined Hoi An Photo Tour early 2018.

Jean Ramiere

Jean Ramiere is the latest addition to our team. After years of being passionate by the environment and wildlife photography, Jean started to capture also the people and way life through Vietnam and especially in Hoi An where he’s been living for several years. Becoming very popular around the old ladies of the market, he will be able to show you the best locations around town and facilitate your approach to the locals. Jean is also the last Pentax photographer left alive on the planet.

Andy Barker

Andy Barker is the newest recruit to the team. After working for five years in International Development, Andy decided to develop himself internationally and left Europe to travel the world. A few years wandering around Asia found him returning again and again to Vietnam, and to Hoi An specifically. Passionate about street photography and the weirder side of travel, Andy very much commits to the idea that if your photos aren’t good enough, you’re not getting close enough. So he can often be found waist-deep in water or knee-deep in mud in search of the perfect angle.
