Where are we going and what are we going to do?

If you love landscapes, photogenic people and have a sense of adventure, our Vietnam, Road Less Travelled photo workshop is for you.

We begin in Hanoi and drive north to Lao Cai and the mountains on the boarder with China. Tourists don't come here so it's completely un-spoilt and the people welcoming and friendly. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they are happy to be photographed going about their lives.

We visit and shoot in H'mong villages, Black Dzao and Nung tribes where you'll get stunning images of daily life and an insight into this rarely visited region.

Feedback and image critiques are given frequently as well as instruction from me, Mike Browne and my business partner Simon Taplin who has beed a travel lifestyle stock photographer for Corbis and Getty images for over 12 years.

This is a real photo adventure to a wonderful area untouched by tourism. Photograph stunning views of rice terraces in the mountains, friendly villagers, farmers, sunrises and sunsets. See image gallery below...
