Myanmar is one of those rare places of allure — especially for a travel photographer — that is difficult to resist. It is without a doubt one of the most enjoyably photogenic places in the world, made all the more so for the fact that most Burmese like being photographed. What’s more, once you’ve been, it’s even more difficult to resist returning. Not just to get the shots you missed or discover more places, but because you miss the way it makes you feel, which really is something bordering on the magical. It is THE perfect place to participate in a photo tour workshop.

PLEASE NOTE: While news reports of military action in remote Myanmar last year were terrible, please understand that Myanmar remains one of the friendliest, most welcoming, and SAFEST travel destinations anywhere in the world. Safer than Thailand, far, far safer than Mexico, even safer than the EU or United States. This is a fact.
