Hanoi – School Girls

After the trip to Sapa – I was obviously lazy and decided to not go Halong Bay and roam around Hanoi. The street shoot at that time wasn’t really fun. Not being a “street photographer” then, I was roaming around with a 70-200 and started shooting every damn thing that moved! Seriously. Nowadays, when I…

Ha Mong Tribe

During Crossing Bridges, we spent a lot of time in the North, all the way to Sapa nearing the Chinese border. In fact, this is probably the northest point of Vietnam. In the north, the tribe that is famous there is Ha Mong tribe. I presume its native to that part of Vietnam. The following…

Hanoi Landscapes

Back when I first started photography, I tried almost anything and everything! Be it street, portraits, models, landscapes – everything also jalan. So when I went to Sapa for the first time, I really didn’t know what to expect. In fact, Crossing Bridges was the first holiday that I had ever done in my life….
