In a photography tour having a great local guide is essential to a successful photography tour. They set up the access to places, arrange for models, meals, transportation, etc. They know what to do when things change unexpectedly, as they often do when in developing nations and remote locations. And if you get all of that plus someone who knows photography, well, that just adds so much value to the tour. Often, you can find a great guide who knows the route, the history/culture, etc., but they don’t ‘get’ photographers’ needs so much.
We’re lucky – for our Myanmar Photo Tour, February 1-15, 2015, we have a wonderful guide. Win has been a professional guide for many years, and learned photography along the way so that he could guide for photography groups from around the world. He has his own business of selling his images and self-publishing books and calendars and his own tours. He has led tours for a host of professional photography leaders, I’m thrilled to have him as our guide! So today, I wanted to celebrate the fact that our tour will be led and managed by an efficient, experienced and knowledgeable guide who just happens to know what creative light is!
With both me and Win you can be assured you’ll have not only great photo opportunities, but also the help to make the best picture you can of the moment.
Thanks to Win for working out all the logistical details that allowed us all to focus on photography while we were there.
