Online PR News – 03-December-2015 – Portland/OR – Luminous Journeys Photo Tours, a division of Luminous Journeys, LLC, has added a second Vietnam photo tour to its 2016 roster of acclaimed photo tours in Southeast Asia, which also include Myanmar and Bali.
“Luminous Vietnam” is designed and led by world renowned travel photographer and portraitist David Lazar, who will be assisted by Vietnamese master photographer, Nguyen Vu Phuoc. French photographer and National Geographic contributor, Rehahn, a resident of Vietnam, will join the team in the UNESCO World Heritage site of old Hoi An. The photo tour workshop runs June 15 – 29, 2016, and is now open for registration.
Photo tour highlights include the spectacular rice terraces and colorful tribal peoples of Mu Can Chai and Ha Giang; a 4-star overnight cruise in fabled Ha Long Bay; The Imperial City of Hue with professional Ao Dai models; the karst rock formations and rice paddies of Ninh Binh; and two Luminous Journeys photo tour exclusives – the surreal beauty of the salt ponds and workers of Kanh Hoa, and rare photo sessions with the “forgotten people” of the ancient Champa Dynasty.
“We are very excited about the team of photographer leaders we’ve assembled for Vietnam.” says
Luminous Journeys’ photo tour director, Bennett Stevens. “While David Lazar has been with us for years and has been instrumental in building our reputation, it’s always very satisfying when that reputation helps us to land more high quality talent. Native son Nguyen Vu Phuoc has won more than 250 local and international photography awards and is a pure joy to work with. Rehahn is Vietnam’s most famous foreign resident photographer, and has just published his second coffee table photo book featuring his adopted homeland.
Just as importantly, and much like David, they are also very generous when it comes to sharing their expertise with photo tour participants. And this is key to having a satisfying and inspiring Vietnam photo tour experience.”
