Work with us
Are you a photographer or photo tour company thinking of bringing a group to Vietnam? We work with select individuals and companies from abroad to help them organize unique photo adventures in the region. These have included renowned international photographers with credits in media outlets like National Geographic and US, Europe and Australia-based operators running photo tours internationally.
How it Works
If you’re interested in hearing how we can help you, simply contact us by hitting the button at the bottom of this page and introduce yourself. Alex will get back in touch with you by mail or a call to share some ideas and any information you need, as well as a rough estimate of pricing. You’ll then work with him to create a tailor-made tour and finalize costs.
The price you pay will include all transport, accommodation, permits, food and non-alcoholic drinks, and FOC for yourself or another representative from your company. You’ll have one Vietnamese English speaking photographer guide to assist you, and our logistics support throughout.
In your research, you may find local Vietnamese travel agencies or fixers offering a cheaper rate to help organize tours for you, but there is a significant difference in quality worth emphasizing.
We have 8 years of hard-earned experience running photography tours and workshops here, both for groups of beginners and professionals. We specialize in this. That’s why we are the choice of Nat Geo, the Travel Channel and Discovery. We know the territory better than anyone else, and also have many, many friends in remote parts of the country, especially among the ethnic minority groups like Dzao and H’mong.
We work with some photographers now who used to make the mistake of hiring a local photographer guide + travel agency for logistics, but they had many problems on the road that often took a long time to solve due to communication problems. Working with us, anything that can’t be solved by our guide on the spot, Alex is the person to contact, and he is available at all times. We are a small company, working with a select number of photographers as well as running our own tours. While you and your group are here, you are our priority.
We’re a western-run company, and have been organizing high-end tours primarily for western photography enthusiasts for the past 8 years. We have a perfect understanding of your guests’ expectations in terms of service, accommodation, transport etc. You won’t need to worry about this side of things at all and can focus on the photography workshop and your guests.
Before running any tour, we always do a pre-tour research trip (included in the price) to check up to date conditions in the places we’ll be shooting. Things change quickly in the quite remote areas we like to shoot in, so it’s good to know beforehand about road conditions, new constructions (like dams and hotels) etc so we can make sure the final plan is perfect.
This is my second trip with ViF and I must say, what an experience. Our group experienced some of the most amazing scenery, food and photography expertise anyone could wish for. The team were so dedicated, sharing and explaining tips and techniques to ensure our photography improved.
Our tour saw us travelling to Quan Ba with incredible and indescribable scenes over Heavens Gate, Me Pi Leng passage, and the Rocky Plateau, down to Ba Be lake then returning to Ha Noi. The accommodation was excellent; food superb and company amazing.
Our side trip to Bai Tu Long an area of Ha Long Bay was the icing on the cake after a full on week of travelling. A private junk was organised for this wonderful part of the trip and it was just what we all needed to relax and rejuvenate.
I have to congratulate Vietnam in Focus for allowing us to capture the REAL essence of Vietnam. I'm already planning my return trips (yes TRIPS) next year with Vietnam in Focus.Huge thanks to the whole team!
