WE WANT TO BE.

WELCOME TO PICS OF ASIA
PHOTO TOURS & TUTORIALS.

We offer immersive, small-group photography tours to hidden locations in Vietnam, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Iran, Sri Lanka and India. We have one simple goal: to teach you how to take better people pictures.

It's easy, really - we leave the tourist crowds far behind and head where the best images are just waiting to be taken. Where real life continues just like it always has, and there are endless opportunities to learn.

SEE LIFE DIFFERENTLY.

If you remember being bored at school, it's probably because your teachers didn't inspire you. Pics of Asia is very different. We're passionate about teaching. We bend over backwards to find new angles, and we love what we do.

We're living our dream: travelling and photographing people, and helping you do the same. Travel with Pics of Asia and you'll get dedicated, personal skills tuition. We make time for regular photo review sessions, and we'll tell you where you're going wrong - or right.

Get wet, get muddy, get cramp waiting for that perfect shot for so long - and get amazing pictures that will show you how far you've come. Whether you're a beginner, intermediate or advanced photographer, you'll return home with better images and unbeatable travel tales.

#AMEMORABLEEXPERIENCE

Damian Lenoard head shot

Ha Giang, 2012.

Our photography resumes were varied from semi-pro photographer/tour guide to solo world traveler wanting to explore a hard to reach & unique part of Vietnam. Their camera of choice was an iPhone and in the end the results spoke volumes for the ever-changing landscape, colorful friendly locals, great tutelage of Etienne and supportive fellow travelers

Ninh Binh, 2017

Etienne is a wonderful tutor for travel photography. He is an expert photographer and teaches with great clarity and enthusiasm. I can’t begin to say how much I have learned from him in such a short period of time

Not only does he know how to make a great image but his enthusiasm for making better images is infectious, hence the early rise

Myanmar

The trip was amazing to say the least, I not only travelled to places where the people had very little contact with the outside world but I was suddenly learning so much about how to make a good image rather than just snapping anything that looked interesting

First, and most importantly is Etienne’s enthusiasm as a guide and teacher. All of his tours are marked by the same huge enthusiasm for the place, the people, the photography, and for passing on his knowledge
