Luang Prabang Photography Tour 3days

Highlight: It’s hard to walk the shady streets of Luang Prabang and not be tempted to lift point and shoot. The meditative quality of this UNESCO World Heritage city located at the confluence of two spiritually important rivers is hard to resist. Whether it is the sweep of temple roofs, the shy smile of Buddhist novices or the melee of market days, Luang Prabang is a great place to begin a photographic adventure in Laos.

The tour moves from the smooth sophistication of a town with its combination of French provincial architecture, gilt covered Buddhist temples and traditional Lao houses to ethnic villages set in scenic mountains. It’s a wonderful and comfortable environment in which to strengthen your photographic vision.a

Detail Itinerary

Day 1:

We recommend you catch a morning flight into Luang Prabang in time to enjoy a traditional Laos lunch. Direct flights to Luang Prabang are now possible from Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Hanoi and Siem Reap.

We start the photographic tuition with a river walk from the Nam Khan (river) to the Mekong, discussing techniques and sharing ideas on how to make the most of your camera. Because this photography tour is tailored to individual needs you can be assured of getting the right level of assistance towards your goals.

The location of the two rivers around the town of Luang Prabang make it ideal for photographers seeking inspiration as they learn new skills. We head across the Mekong to the opposite bank and explore Ban Xieng Maen, a traditional town with some elegant temples.

The days photography concludes with sunset on the Mekong River.

Dawn breaks with the sound of drums as novice monks call the sangha to prepare the daily sacred ritual of Tak Bat. At this time food is given to Buddhist monks as they file through the streets to promote compassion. Photography of the monks is permitted and we explore ways to capture the symbolism of the event without intruding on the moment.

Morning alms is an early start and we have breakfast and a chat after the experience. Comparing notes and discussing what did or didn’t work is an important part of the tuition. We will be able to review your images and suggest new ways to approach the challenge. You can apply your knowledge from the first morning of Tak Bak by returning again the following morning.

After breakfast you’ll travel to ethnic Lao villages that rely on lowland rice and river fish for food and trade. This takes us far away from the colonial streets of Luang Prabang and the fancy restuarants, a chance to immerse yourself in rural life and learn techniques to photograph local cultures with care and respect.

There are no models or hired subjects on these trips, we only photograph genuine people. We discourage paying for photos, prefering instead to send our subjects a copy of photos where possible. Paul is able to ensure these photos do get returned to the right village.

We leave the rivers and ascend the mountains, visiting Hmong groups (descended from Mongolian nomads) and Khmu villages high in the hills. Both groups are famous for their steep mountain farming and unique architecture. The villages we visit are rarely seen by tourists and offer an opportunity to photograph real lives of real people.

Morning alms can be pursued again this morning, plus we schedule a visit to Talat Pa Kham, Luang Prabang’s morning market, Local produce and exotic goods, such as insect larvae, are traded here every day. You can even have the local noodle soup for breakfast.

We finish the morning with a walk around the downtown area to study the architecture of the French and the temples of the Lao. We will enjoy a farewell lunch and a photography discussion before transfer to the airport. (Bangkok Airways departs Luang Prabang mid afternoon and you will be bid farewell at 12 noon.)
