7 Days in Northern Vietnam
The Mu Cang Chai Tour
This Photo Tour has only one place left available!
Photo tour led by Etienne Bossot
Starting in Hanoi, Vietnam's capital and itself situated in North, this 7 day tour will bring us to the most amazing terraced rice fields of Vietnam and the less explored areas of the northwest corner of the country. We spend some time in the area of Y Ty, which is very close to the Chinese border, then we head towards Mu Cang Chai with a stop over in Bac Ha to capture its amazing Sunday market.
This tour is very much landscape orientated but of course keeping a photographic angle on the people we are going to meet. As we are traveling there during the rice harvest time there will be plenty of people photos opportunities.
For Etienne, experience is key. When he takes people on tour, they not only travel and discover new things together but he engages them in their craft. All of those on Etienne’s tours become fully immersed in the landscape of their lens. Workshopping is continual and intimate with lots of one-on-one time. All of these elements help make his tours among the best in the world. Because it all comes down to passion.
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!
