8th edition!

Duration: 10 days

Dates:    October 09th to 18th 2018

Co-leader: Quinn Ryan Mattingly.

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

October sees the end of rainy season and is one of the quietest 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, also doing our first photo critic session.

The tour will take 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 will 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.
