Focus – Sunrise, Historic Old Town Hoi An

Our most popular Hoi An Photo Tour! We will focus on learning your camera and capturing beautiful shots around historic Hoi An old town. With Trinh wearing the traditional Vietnamese clothing (ao dai and non la), you will have a unique opportunity to capture stunning shots of quintessential Vietnam, something unique to Hoi An 360. Trinh is also our Vietnamese cultural guide and can help you connect with the locals giving you much better opportunities to photograph the people. This photo walk around Hoi An is open to all skill levels and camera types, including cell phones. It is kid and family friendly.

Learn – Your Camera & Composition

We will meet near the iconic old Japanese bridge before sunrise and begin with an overview and discussion of your camera and how to use the various settings. You will have the opportunity to practice what we discuss; shutter speed, aperture, focus, etc. It’s important to learn this and see the results right away in a creatively nurturing environment without pressure.
The next step as we move through Old Town Hoi An will focus on composition and learning to see creatively. We will walk through narrow alleys and past old buildings. The possibilities are many and we will discuss and practice telling a story through your pictures as well as refining your technical proficiency.

Refining Your Technique – Review

As we walk around Old Town Hoi An, in addition to taking pictures of our very own photographic subject Trinh, we will also have the chance to take pictures of locals going about their business. Trinh is our link to the locals of Hoi An and can help you connect with the people in a way that is virtually impossible for a foreigner. We’ve built close relationships with many locals making it much easier for you to connect with and photograph them.
Finally, we will settle at a coffee shop to review the morning and discus post-processing techniques on both Lightroom and mobile apps. 

Supporting the Community

“My goal with Hoi An 360 is not only to teach you photography and take to the best places to shoot in and around Hoi An, but to also do some good for the local community. This is why we always work to give back to the local people on a personal basis. Whether it is pictures for the local fisherman, rice for someone in need, presents on Tet, or financial support, we are always working to support and enrich the lives of those that we photograph. When you do a photo tour or workshop with us, you are directly supporting the people of Hoi An.”
