Capture one of Asia’s most vibrant markets at dawn
Hanoi Photography Day Tour and Workshop
Join us before sunrise at bustling Long Bien Market, as thousands of deliveries from the provinces and farther-flung regions of Vietnam provide the traders with stock. From century-old Long Bien Bridge, we learn how to introduce a photo story with a ‘context’ or ‘landscape’ shot. Our vantage point gives us a stunning view over the brightly-lit market, traders, couriers and customers barging this way and that between the stalls. Then we’re down into the market, rubbing shoulders with the locals and exploring portraits and relationship shots. There’s a great deal to explore, with colourful fruit stalls, workers unloading trucks, and a fish and meat market with some very talkative traders down near the river. As the sun rises, the market slows down, and we’ll catch shots of the locals doing their morning exercises near the city’s Water Tower. We finish up with a delicious bowl of local ‘pho’ and a strong Hanoi coffee while we review our pictures from the tour.
Learn the art of great travel photography while exploring one of Asia’s most exciting markets.
