Welcome to our Luminous Vietnam photo tour spectacular! Why Vietnam?

Make no mistake about it – this Vietnam photographic journey offers the absolute best shooting schedule in existence. We invite you to check out the competition and compare, becuase we know you’ll be back! It’s only fitting then, that a photo tour at this level be designed & led by one of the planet’s foremost travel photographers, multi-major award winner and National Geographic contributor, David Lazar David is more than just an outstanding photographer and experienced photo tour leader – he’s also a joy to travel and make pictures with. His photo tours are relaxed yet focused, and he always puts his guests’ image making in front of his own. You will learn a lot shooting with David, and he is more than happy to offer Lightroom and Photoshop tutorials to those interested.
David and his amazing Vietnamese team mate, Nguyen Vu Phuoc, as well as our logistics whiz Diep Van, will always effort to have you on location at the right time of day for the best available light for a particular shoot. There will be a mix of landscapes, people & portraiture, free shooting and arranged photo shoots in exotic settings, with both impromptu and professional models.
The itinerary is jam packed – from the mind blowing rice terraces of the north and their very colorful mountain tribes, to the sand dunes of the south-central coast’s Champa people with their rare strain of blue eyes. In between is an overnight, 4-star photo cruise on fabled Ha Long Bay; a visit to the rice paddies, canals and karst limestone formations of idyllic Ninh Binh; elegant Ao Dai model sessions in Hanoi’s old quarter, as well as within the resplendent ancient walls of Hue’s Imperial City; and amazing insider access at the World Heritage site of old Hoi An, provided by renowned French photographer and Hoi An resident, Rehahn .
