1. We operate budget photographic tours. No exorbitant fees. We believe photography is not only for the elite and rich. For example, while operators in the North America charge USD5000~6000 for a photography tour in Myanmar (air ticket excluded), we charge USD1800 with the same standard of lodging, meals & transport.
How is that possible?
We are local, our organisation is minimalist, most of the cost goes to your lodging, meals, local guide and transport, there is no running cost when we do not have a tour. We live a simple life in Asia.
No advertising, no middle man. Instead of charging high rates, and spend on advertising or marketing, We prefer to allow more people to enjoy these tours and let our satisfied tour members to do the publicity.
We want to keep a good reputation and a long term relationship with our fellow photography enthusiasts. In average, 70% of our tour members have previously joined our tours.
Because we enjoy what we do, we love photography, we love traveling, we get to meet old and new friends, we love being recognised. It is not just a business, it is our way of life.
2. All-inclusive. Except the international flight ticket to the point of meet, and insurance.
3. Small groups. Not more than 10 members.
4. Please be warned that these are no leisurely tours. When sun-rise sessions are scheduled, we have to get up before the sun does. If we do get up early, a short break will be arranged after lunch. In the evening, we rest early, so 7-8 hours of sleep per day is possible. In the desert, be ready to get dusty. In Semporna, be ready to get wet.
