Nikon Showcase Photographer of the Year, “Mac”, aka "Snap Baba", is perhaps best known for his remarkable documentary images of the Coonana Aboriginal people of Western Australia. His images from Africa, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Cuba have been lauded worldwide as well. He's no stranger to Golden Land acclaim either, having received the prestigious LeicaPrize for his work in Burma in 1996.
As for Myanmar Photo Tours with Luminous Journeys, Mac is available at various times throughout the year to guide you (or Bali photo tours as well!) on his own unique style of photo holiday workshop - that of the travel street shooter. Yangon is a veritable gold mine for street photography, and he absolutely loves it, especially as it's unsung and under appreciated, leaving it more wide open for him! Of course he also loves getting remote and spending time with ethnic tribal groups, and this is where we get into documentary travel photography. So where does that leave the great monuments and temples of Myanmar, or the tour bus wonders of Bali? Well, they may well still be on your itinerary - it's your choice - but Mac will shoot them differently than most, using them more as backdrops for people living and working in & around them, rather than as subjects themselves. For more on the beneficent Snap Baba, see his BIOGRAPHY page.
