Photo tour led by Etienne Bossot

Come and discover what is for us the most photogenic country of South East Asia in this 10 day tour. Gifted with a very high spiritual atmosphere, Myanmar offers stunning sceneries as well as some of the friendliest people in the region. Starting in Yangon during the biggest Full Moon festival of the year, we head up North to Bagan and its numerous temples, before discovering untouched parts of Pindaya and Inle lake’s beauty.

This is the fifth time Etienne runs this popular photo tour.

Companions

Of course you can bring your companion with you! With our local partners we have created a number of interesting and rewarding activities for them to fully enjoy the time too.

Weather

This is the wet season so it does rain from time to time. In the plains it is hot as always, but up high, as we will be, it is very cold at night, even close to freezing, so bring a mix of clothes.

Difficulty

Energetic but not mountain climbing. You do have to be in reasonable health, capable of one hour hikes up hills. Do bring good walking shoes.

Brief Itinerary

October and November sees the end of rainy season and is one of the most quite time to visit Myanmar, allowing us to avoid the big tourist rush of the beginning of the year. Even though it is difficult to get away from the main touristic locations in Myanmar, we have organized some very special things to do which will bring us to very remote locations, where it is still possible to capture the real essence of Myanmar.

We start the tour in Shwedagon Pagoda at sunrise, doing our first photo workshop among a crowd of people silently walking around the golden Stupa, an amazing experience! We will spend few days exploring Yangon and its countryside, and also working on our first photo critic session. The tour then takes us to Bagan where we will specifically work on people photography techniques, as well as landscapes that the area offers. Once again, we will quickly get away from the main touristic circuit and head into some villages where time froze, allowing us great photographic opportunities.

We drive to Pindaya at the time ethnic tribes are harvesting rice, and really put our focus to landscapes photography including some human elements. Then, we head to Inle lake through the beautiful sceneries of the highlands in central Myanmar, super for some good landscapes shots. The lake remains to us the most beautiful area of the country, as well as its busy markets where ethnic tribes come and meet.

Developing your photo skills is an absolute must on Etienne's tours. For every tour he selects relevant topic areas to workshop through and also design specific workshops for people while on tour. Most of the tour is aimed at developing composition and storytelling skills. We focus on different topics and apply them to daily situations. All tours include at least two photo critiquing sessions as well as workshops. This not only gives each person invaluable insight into their work but also enhances the group bonding experience. So you are guaranteed to go home a better photographer than before – plus you will have had an amazing travel experience!
