​     There are two very important aspects that make Off Beat Photography Workshops & Tours unique. The first is that all Off Beat tours always include a professional cultural guide (from the host country) who provides essential background information about the culture, their traditions and the environment they reside in. This is absolutely imperative for making authentic photographs that truly capture the spirit of an event or place. The second aspect is that the photographic instruction you receive is from a professional photographer and educator who has been working and living in Asia for more than twenty years. By combining these two aspects (both insider perspectives), Off Beat Tours affords you, the photographer, remarkable opportunities to learn about, see, experience and photograph some of the hidden treasures of authentic Asian culture that most tour companies do not even know exist, including the most renown photographic tour operators.
