Etienne's personality and ability as a photographer make this a memorable tour. His relationships with people in a local village give one access to subjects that a tourist on foot would miss

Don't waste your time thinking about whether to book this photo tour, just book it! Two of us joined the morning sunrise tour with the fisherman. Etienne has established great relationships with the people in the village. We would not have gotten the photos we did if it weren't for the tour.

Etienne is not only a great guy, but a fabulous photographer and excellent teacher. His workshops are full of great tips, and moreover, introductions to parts of Vietnam you may not otherwise see. Highly recommend that you at least take one of his short trips!

I met Etienne in January 2016 and booked him for my photography workshop group in April. He is a wonderful photographer and exposed my group to a different style of photography. The fishing village was fantastic and there were lots of fabulous images from the group.

I joined the day photo tour and then was lucky enough to be able to join the sunrise photo tour to the fishing village the morning I was leaving. It was an enjoyable experience with photographers of all different levels. Etienne has a wonderful way of getting a feel of where everyone is in their photography skills and individualizing his...

Etienne was most gracious and helpful and a great instructor on Street Photography. The fish market and surrounding areas of the village proved to be a great experience I learned a great deal and had the chance to see the real life rather than the touristy areas, I would have liked to return but was in Hoi Ann for one...

Well a thoroughly fantastic experience. Doubling as a photographic learning experience and a tour for the tourist in us all. Etienne was a fine host and ran a great workshop catering for the broad spectrum photographic skills amongst our group. I highly recommend you grab a spot on one of Etienne's tours.

I did this (the Fishermen) "workshop" in October. There were just two other participants, both of whom were experienced photographers, so was lucky that we didn't get stuck on exposure triangles (I think Etienne tries to adapt the workshop to the participants' skills). Although I've carried a camera for over 50 years and have taken pictures around the world, I... More

My husband and I joined a small group for the "Sunrise with fishermen" tour. It's well worth it rising before the birds in the morning. Very fun to meet the locals and see the busy harbour when the fishermen come in with their catch. I learned a lot about camera settings and how to compose good photos. Very interesting lesson...
