Where is Myanmar?
Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) borders Thailand, Bangladesh and China. It is a land of exceptionally friendly and welcoming people, I have never felt worried or the need to hold my camera bag a bit tightly during my travels there.
What are we going to do?
From Yangon capital city we're flying to Bagan on the banks of the Irawaddy River with it's ancient monasteries and valley of 1000 stupas.
Two days later we fly to Mandalay where there is ample opportunity to shoot street photography, Monks, monasteries and local industry which hasn't changed in 100s of years. We'll shoot sunset from a boat at the 2 KM long U Bein Bridge.
Next we fly to Heho and drive down to Inle Lake where we're spending 2 days amongst the stilt towns, markets and fishermen exploring, photographing and adventuring.

Bring Your Partner
We know many photographers would like to bring their non photographer partners to share the experience, so we have 3 non participant places at a discount of 25% of the twin share workshop tour cost. Partners can accompany us on all locations at all times. Photographic mentoring or classroom sessions are for full participants only. During these times partners can relax around the hotel or explore their surroundings.
If you're a regular on this site or my YouTube channel you probably know me already. I'm the guy in the banner at the top of this site.
I've been a social, industrial and commercial photographer since 1993, have always had a love of travel and new cultures - and passion for sharing my knowledge with others. Which, according to the 1000's of lovely emails and comments I receive I'm very good at.
I have worked for all kind of clients from high end weddings to hotels and electronics manufacturers. I have been sponsored by FujiFilm, had exhibitions displayed by the Romanian Ambassador in London, The Master Photographer's Association and the Royal Photographic society.
My YouTube photography channel attracts 3 years of video views each month, I have a teaching qualification and a sense of mischief ;-)
