Orion sharpens the focus on Vietnam

Learn from the experts. Award winning wildlife photographer, author and filmmaker, Sue Flood, joins international photographer Nick Rains as a guest presenter onboard Orion II during a 9 night Vietnam Explorer photographic voyage.

This is an opportunity for enthusiasts of all levels to improve their photographic skills while on location in one of the world's most photogenic settings, Vietnam.

Starting in Ho Chi Minh this voyage includes 4 photogenic World Heritage sites - Hue, Hoi An, My Son and Ha Long Bay. There will be ample opportunity to experience and capture the cultural, historic and geographic diversity of Vietnam including the Saigon River, busy with sampans, exploring the traditional fishing village of Baie de Cu Mon, rarely seen by outsiders and exploring Nha Trang's Communist Party headquarters.

Nick and Sue will be holding regular workshops onboard before taking guests ashore on location along with members of Orion's specialist expedition team.

Onboard  photography workshops include professional advice and instruction on understanding and optimizing camera settings, selecting the best lens for the occasion, framing your subject and 'capturing the moment' along with instruction on the dark art of digital editing-software and printing.

Explore, experience and shoot from dawn to dusk, with internationally recognised and awarded professional photographers; then relax, compare images and enjoy superb cuisine, wines and company by night onboard Orion II.
