I have been on quite a number of photo tours all over the world, and Luminous Journeys has been the best – by far. Kyaw Kyaw Winn and the people of Myanmar will always be in my heart. — Benny Hanigal
The Big 4 iconic locations feature Yangon’s 2,500 year old Shwedagon Pagoda and Circle Train; the floating world of magical Inle Lake and its uniquely photogenic Intha fishermen, the surreal 2,220 temples-of surreal Bagan; and the myriad great photo ops of The Mandalay Array.
Your photo tour leader is a passionate and patient teacher who has been guiding international photographers on photo tour workshops for years, and knows Myanmar and her often ethereal light like no one else. His zest for photography and joyous nature make him a oure joy to travel and photograph with.
“KK was a complete star – what a wonderful man… I learned more about photography with KK than I have ever before in my life! This is the one of the best trips I have done and I am certainly more than “quite” happy – I am extremely happy! The photography was fantastic and intense and I loved it. And of course Burma is such a special and wonderful country. The trip was magical – and I cannot rate KK and Boothee more highly. I can’t wait to do another LJ trip!”– Katie Garrod, UK
This Burma photo tour workshop is open to photo enthusiasts of all skill levels interested in broadening their photographic horizons and learning how to make pro quality images. You will be taken to numerous insider locations that would be impossible to find on your own, and also have the chance to work in a number of arranged shoot situations with locals, including dramatic low and chiaroscuro light interiors.
With 8 participants, K.K. will be joined on tour by award winning photojournalist Boothee Thaik Htun, with whom he has teamed with on numerous occasions.
NOTE: Yes, the country is very safe for travelers. Safer that the US, EU, or neighboring Thailand. This is a fact. Myanmar’s very remote troubles have zero affect on tourism, except for the drop in visitors! This is all the more reason for photographers to come and enjoy the Golden Land and its wonderful people, not stay away. If you have doubts, please have a look at this article.
