Begin your tour with a 6am pickup from your central Hanoi hotel (later pickups can be arranged on request) and set out to explore the city with your private guide, an experienced photographer.
After an introduction to the basic photography techniques and settings that you will need, stroll along Long Bien Bridge to shoot your first landscape shots, with the dramatic city skyline in the background. Next, head to Long Bien market, Hanoi's biggest wet market, and busy Dong Xuan market, where you'll have chance to shoot everyday scenes and snap candid shots of local workers, shoppers, and families.
Follow your guide through the winding streets and alleyways of Hanoi's Old Quarter, stopping to practice street photography and portrait photography techniques along atmospheric Hang Thiec and Thuoc Bac streets. Continue to Hang Vai, Phung Hung and the railway tracks, where you'll learn how to add a storytelling element to your photos as you stroll around the residential districts.
After around three hours of walking, head to Café Zoom in central Hanoi, where you'll enjoy coffee and snacks. End your tour with a 1-hour professional selection and editing session, ensuring you leave with plenty of impressive photos to show off to friends and family back home.
