China Photography Workshop with David Burdeny and Marc Koegel - January 22 to 29, 2019


Vancouver Photo Workshops proudly presents this incredibly rare and unique Master Photography Workshop, with internationally acclaimed photographers David Burdeny and Marc Koegel.

This will be one of the first ever workshops that David Burdeny is offering, and Marc Koegel is excited to join him for this exclusive offering.

Participation is strictly limited to only 8 participants.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to expand your visual horizons and gain access to a region of China very few foreign photographers ever get to experience. Our group will have local guides that can provide rare access and guarantee a carefree travel experience.

Before the workshop begins, there is an optional day of photographing architecture in Hong Kong, open to participants who travel to our meeting location, the city of Kunming, via Hong Kong.

In addition to photography, there will also be opportunities to have your work reviewed and David & Marc will also discuss their digital workflow and post production techniques.

For more details, and to get your questions answered, please feel free to email Marc directly at

Workshop Description provided by David Burdeny:

Yuanyang, lies in the relatively underdeveloped southeast part of Yunnan, Honghe Hani and Yi People's Autonomous Region in southwest China.

Because it's a relatively inaccessible part of Yunnan, mass tourism and western influence has yet to take hold making it a challenging destination to reach for those unable to speak Mandarin. 

After a day in Kunming we will drive to Yaunyang where we will visit the Bada rice terraces and Qingkou Village (time permiting), after which we will do out first shoot over Laohuzui rice terraces.

The next days will having us rising early to secure a good position along the many overlooks and trails throughout the area.  The weather can be unpredictable and we will have to tailor our movements in accordance to the cloud cover and prevailing winds. 

Our local guide, whom I've worked with before, knows this area very well and will keep abreast on the conditions and best possible locations to shoot at any given time.

We will also have the opportunity to visit a Hani Village, the local markets and just soak in unique part of rural China that is over 1300 years old.
