Visit Hoi An with Travel Photographer of the Year — Felix Hug
4 days of shooting and post processing, S$1,380 (course outline or sign up now)
Having shot the cover of the National Geographic Traveler guide for Vietnam, Felix Hug brings you on this trip to one of the most vibrant places in Vietnam — Hoi An.
From the Marble Mountains to the Champa ruins at My Son, this workshop is ideal for those looking to get immersed in a cultural experience with beautiful images to show for it at the end. Rather than rushing from one place to another and frantically shooting everything that passes by, let Felix show you when and where to be in Hoi An to get the best shots.
It is recommended and suitable for serious photographers, as well as aspiring amateurs who have basic working knowledge of their cameras and looking to take their skills further.
We’ve always felt there is too much photography and too little experiential travel nowadays with most travel photography workshops. So this workshop is perfect for those looking for a relaxed, yet photographically rewarding travel experience.
Combine this with a cozy boutique hotel where you can experience a potpourri of cuisines comprising Vietnamese, Chinese and French dishes (and combinations thereof!) for relaxing your body and taste buds.
You will be rejuvenated everyday to handle the shoots and assignments having feasted on the multitude of cuisines and fortified with Vietnamese coffee.
Learn to Handle the Tricky Light at Sunrise
Processing tons of images at the end of your holidays can be a daunting task. This workshop has 2 sessions on postproduction. Learn to process and convert your RAW files and manage your image library so you can share your masterpieces online while sipping your Vietnamese coffee from the comfort of the hotel.
Mingle with the Locals and Understand their Lifestyle
While most tourists sweat it out in the sun wondering what to point their cameras at, you will be at the right place and right time, be it the dawn at the harbour or the full moon festivities at night. You will interact with the locals when Felix introduces street photography and shooting discreetly while on the move.
Shoot under Continuous Guidance from the Instructor
Most travel photography workshops pack large number of participants with varied skills in one big group. This workshop is a premium workshop kept to a size of 6-12 persons max so that each student gets the attention needed to learn effectively and get great pictures at the end of the workshop.
