Educational activity in Hoi An

Our photography tours are definitely a great educational activity you can do while in Hoi An. What best than learning and improving your photography skills while you are travelling through Vietnam and Asia? 

Perfect your camera settings understanding and learn some great creative composition techniques. All our tours begin with a photography workshop about camera settings and composition. Our goal is to help you understand the tool you are using and see things the way photographers do: working on the light, capturing a moment and telling stories with your photos. 

An artistic activity that makes you create unique images 

We’ll take you to some of the most iconic places around Hoi An as they are part of the journey. More than that, we will be here to push you to express yourself and capture the images you really want. Don’t be afraid of having a different approach. We’ve been teaching thousands of students with different expectations and goals. We will use our experience to help your find your own style and capture the images that you enjoy (and can be proud of).

Our tours specialize in the art of people photography

Because taking photos of people in Vietnam is easier than in other parts of the world, it is the ideal location if you want to get started with people photography. And this is what we have been doing for 15 years, in Vietnam and in many other countries in Asia.

We also focus on the art of approaching people to take their photos with ethics and respect. We go and meet the people and talk with them, learning about their ways of life and experience.

A food discovery 

It might not be what you’re thinking about first when it comes to photography but hey, photographers do also need some energy! (yes early wake up do need to be rewarded !). During our tour, we love to support small local businesses, it’s one of the ways we like to give back to the community. For our guests, it’s usually a great moment to try local food in a 100% local atmosphere. Eating Quang noodles on the beach, enjoying a delicious banh mi while observing a busy street…. Here are some of the little foody sides that we enjoy during our tours and workshops. 

And don’t forget the coffee! We know the absolute best coffee shops around because, we have to admit, we’re a bit caffeine-addicted! Coffee culture is a really important part of the Vietnamese way of life.
