A dusty photography tour that brings us in the fields, capturing the action of the people at sunset. We also have the chance to walk through authentic villages where time stood still.

Sunset in Hoi An makes for an infinite hue of colours and reflections. Enjoy a ride to the farming villages, explore the rice paddies in the warm afternoon light, capture the workers planting, ploughing or harvesting rice. Under the guidance of our expert photographers, enter a traditional village along the river where we have created a strong relationship with the people over the years.

We meet at 3 pm in our office,
42 Phan Boi Chau, before heading by Minivan in the countryside. There we start our photography workshop around a drink, going through camera settings and composition, and of course, the way to approach people to take their picture.
We spend the afternoon walking through villages and fields, looking for the farming activity in the fields or the fishermen in the river.
After refreshment, we head back to our Van and drive back to our office and say some last few words to end the tour.
Tour ends at 6.30 pm.
We use a Minivan
Yes, it’s quite hot in summertime in the afternoon. We provide water and have plenty of opportunities to find refreshments on the way. Think about taking a hat and some sunscreen.
We do walk quite a bit on this tour but it remains flat, with some adventures in dry fields. Any shoes will do. We may, though, be tempted to try the rice field mud if the opportunity arises 🙂
The tour ends in our office, 42 Phan Boi Chau. From there, you can easily walk into town or order a taxi.
Of course, you can. Even though we start most of our photography tours discussing camera settings, most of our workshops are about composition and how to be creative. So any camera works!
It is my second time going on one of the tours arranged by Etienne and I hope it won't be the last. My previous tour was some 5 years ago and we went to the fishing village at dawn. As a professional photographer, it is fabulous to have a guide who can take you to places you would never normally go. Etienne is that guide and this time was no exception. This time I chose to take the evening tour to the fields around Hoi An and it was equal to the early morning trip (and didn't mean getting up at 4.30am on your holidays - mind you that was worth it) I must add that Etienne and myself have become friends since we first met and although it may look like I am being a little sycophantic, I assure you I am not. Etienne is a great photographer and a great teacher - even to an old hack like myself :) Anyway, go on either tour, I recommend them both and just take photos ! Thanks again Etienne !
