Sept 7th - Personalized Photography Tour
Cultural submersion is Mikaku’s specialty, finding the most special intriguing and captivating photo opportunities. He also has several very special sunrise and sunset locations and knowledge of the best places to view Bali’s diverse wildlife.
Budding photographers might wish to receive help with each setting, composition and theory, which Mikaku is more than happy to provide.
More seasoned photographers might prefer to just know the lay of the land and light conditions. Pre-trip conversations will help establish what level of service is right for you.
While our driver is excellent, he does not have a photographic eye for what you might find appealing, thus the additional expense of Mikaku’s expertise will surely result in many more photographic opportunities.
Each Photo Tour Includes:
Option for photography lesson during tour
8 hours with car, driver, gas and tolls
Small entry fees (temples and other local sites)
