Maria and I have been conducting photo tours since 2008 from our base in Jakarta and so far we have accomplished over 30 tours in 17 countries. These do not even include the many mini photo tours within Indonesia. And to give you an example, we have already conducted 20 photo tours to the majestic Mount Bromo volcano in east Java.
So you could say we are expert in navigating our way around Indonesia.In 2018 we conducted our first Jewels of Indonesia Photo Tour and it was very well received by our photo friends. You can read some of their reviews by visiting the Testimonials page.
During the Jewels of Indonesia Photo Tour we will spend 2 days exploring the majestic Mount Bromo volcano in eastern Java. We will be traveling in 4WD and photographing landscapes in a terrain that will make you think you are on the moon! A sunrise expedition will ensure you have magazine quality images.
We spend 5 days on the must-see tropical island of Bali. We are based in the artistic city of Ubud and we will radiate out to photogenic locations every day. Be prepared for some early starts……gotta do it…we are photographers. We have so much in store for you in Bali. A walk through enchanting rice fields, photographing traditional culture and temple ceremonies together with sweeping landscapes. We also have a sunrise shoot at a lake temple, visit the UNESCO listed rice paddies of Jatiluwih and photograph the coastal temple of Tanah Lot.
Yes, we have allowed time for shopping!
In Jakarta you will have some rest (and shopping) time, and we can lead you on a guided morning photo walk through one of our favorite kampungs – a mini village within the metropolis of Jakarta.
We spend some time on the island of Kalimantan (Borneo) where we will be photographing the Orangutans (bring your long lenses). We will spend some of the day on a boat and on dry land photographing the wildlife and the Orangutans in the rain forests; a very special experience. We will get close to them and have many opportunities to photograph these engaging primates.
Another Indonesian jewel is Belitung Island just a 45 minute flight from Jakarta. Crystal clear water, unique rock formations and an enchanting fishing village will occupy us for 3 days.
