Myanmar photo tours with Luminous Journeys have become the very best in the country for a few key reasons. First is Myanmar itself, which is a dream come true for any travel photographer. National Geographic's Catherine Karnow, who has shot all over the world, has called Myanmar the most photogenic place she's ever photographed. Smithsonian award winning travel photographer David Lazar has said essentially the same thing in more than one magazine interview, & the list goes on. But Myanmar is more than just photogenic - it's an absolute joy to travel and work in. The people are warm, friendly and welcoming, and almost always happy to be photographed. Our photography guides are top Myanmar professionals and major award winners who know the light & locations like they live there, because they do! As for David Lazar, he's been so many times he may as well be a local, but since he isn't, works on tour with Burma's most popular travel snapper, A.P. Soe. In short, you are always getting the invaluable benefit of local knowledge and local language skills, along with fluency in English. Novice to pro and everything in between, we get them all and all are welcome!
“David Lazar was so helpful and patient with those that were novices with the camera, and A.P. Soe’s keen eye for photo opportunities was nothing short of amazing. My photos came out beautifully! The food was great, the accommodations were great and the group could not have been better. I will be taking another tour with Luminous Journeys in the very near future. Until then, thank you so much for a wonderful, fun, exciting, memorable and well planned out journey!” – Shelley Myer, USA
