Ten-Day Workshop $3995.00
Nov 14 to Nov 23
Meet and greet on Nov 13 at 7pm
4 students maximum
Myanmar is well on its way to becoming the must see destination of Southeast Asia. Much like undiscovered Iceland of just 10 years ago, Myanmar is a true photographic feast with images to be taken at most every turn in the road. Temples, people from all walks of life, colorful markets, mountains, rice fields, brightly dressed monks, and smiles everywhere. We will travel through Myanmar by plane, tuk-tuk and hired car depending on the destination and much like India, we will travel towards the best possible shooting opportunities. Myanmar really is amazing!
You will fly into Yangon, (formely Rangoon, Burma) where we will spend our first two days and where we will meet on Thursday evening, 7pm, November 13, in the lobby of the Best Western Chinatown Hotel.
