Myanmar (Burma) Photographic Adventure - with Albert Normandin & Marc Koegel - November 2020
 

Join acclaimed photographers Albert Normandin and Marc Koegel for this very special photographic tour to Myanmar (Burma). With 15 trips over the last 14 years, Myanmar has stolen Albert’s heart and it will not let go.

Here are some of Albert's thoughts about Myanmar:

Once you arrive you in Myanmar, the first thing you will notice are the golden temples, pagodas, and stupas dotting the countryside everywhere you look, I mean everywhere. With the warm tones of the landscape and the rich sunsets, Myanmar lives up to its name “The Golden Land”.

Myanmar is predominantly a Buddhist country. In their daily lives, the people strive and pray for peace, happiness, and kindness. You will soon feel the warmth of these wonderful people.

Like many countries in Asia, Myanmar has wonderful landscape, historical sites, markets, festivals, etc… But what draws me back, again and again, is the beautiful, peaceful culture. It not been destroyed by outside influences yet. A visit to Myanmar is like going back in time.

I never imagined I would find a country that I would feel completely comfortable in, but then I found Myanmar. It is the safest country I have been to, by far. I come to Myanmar to find peace and happiness.

Albert Normandin, September 2019

During this 13 day photo adventure, Albert will share his passion for what is without a doubt one of the most enjoyable and photogenic places in the world. In fact, National Geographic photographer Catherine Karnow proclaimed, “Myanmar is the most photogenic place that I have ever photographed.” 

Myanmar is a world treasure because of its warm-hearted, smiling people who make it a truly magical photography destination for capturing candids and compelling portraits of locals, including monks. The Burmese like being photographed!

Even though the people are reason #1 to visit Myanmar, it’s bursting with cultural heritage and literally thousands of gilded pagodas spread across the country, offering countless opportunities for architectural shots as well.

Myanmar is also one of the safest travel destinations in the world, despite the distorted impression the media gives recently. Please read this article for more information.
