What you'll do

We will start at one of my favourite coffee shop, have a talk about Hanoi's history and culture, exchange our ideas of photography, techniques and tips, what is your photography experience to see how can I make this photo walk better fit for you.

We will warm up by capturing a small, hidden but full of life local market. I will help you to simplify your camera (or your phone) setting and method of shooting, relax your body, overcoming your fear of taking photo of stranger, find the beauty in chaos of Hanoi streets. After that our eyes will be thirsty for more of Hanoi's character, culture and stories. Then it will be the perfect time for us to hit the Heaven of Street Photography in Hanoi - Dong Xuan market and surrounding area. After you feel the older Vietnamese market atmosphere, there will be a lot of colours, shadows, backgrounds, foregrounds, characters to practice our techniques with.

Lastly, we will find a nice place to have some juice (or bia hơi maybe*) and do a photo review session, some tips on editing as well

I'm a Hanoi based photographer and video producer. Photography is not only my passion but also for training my visual, creative thinking, discovering my city's culture and my way of meditation.

When it comes to practicing photography, Hanoi is one of the best cities in the world because of its vibrancy, full of life, full of character, conflicts but also harmony between the tradition and the modern. After years of researching its culture and capturing its daily life, Hanoi's streets and markets still amaze and inspire me everyday.

This was an absolutely delightful experience and a great orientation to the Old Quarter of Hanoi. I was able to get my bearings as well as take some fun photos. I enjoyed Thanh's focus on people and everyday shots. We covered a lot of ground and he also made sure I didn't get mowed down by mopeds. :) Thank you again, Thanh!

Thanh was a great host and had a lot of knowledge. He took us to places we never would’ve known about. He helped me as a beginner to understand the art of photography and how to capture my surroundings to the maximum. He also helped me understand how to tell a story through my photography and how to focus on your subject. Thanh was a genuinely kind and welcoming guide.
