Who wouldn’t love to shoot the sunrise in Bagan overlooking over 2000 ancient temples with dozens of hot-air balloons floating over them? Myanmar (formerly Burma) is a world treasure because of its warm-hearted, smiling people who make it a truly magical photography destination for capturing candids and compelling portraits of locals. Myanmar was frozen in time and opened its doors to the world only a few years ago. Now is the right time to experience the vibe that may vanish in the next couple of years.

What our participants say about our recent photo tours?
Just returned from Czech photo tour organized by Martin Bisof . Highly recommended. Imagine having a young, enthusiastic photographer as a friend in Prague who meets you at the airport, carefully plans your tour, books cozy little hotels, knows the best spots , takes care of all your needs. Four very different participants from all over the world had an immediate click. Martin is very knowledgeable in photography, gear and after processing. Always eager to give an advice. What I liked best is his subtle taste and sensitivity, the “cleanliness” in his composition, sophisticated simplicity. We were not so lucky with the “right” , photographic weather. The mist was too heavy in Moravian fields, the sun did not rise over the Prague roofs on the right day, etc,etc. And yet everyone was happy thanks to Martin’s good humor and optimism.
10 days in Iceland with Inscape Photo Tour has been one of the great trips for me. Martin and Jan opened a door to post-processing world that I never knew could make your photos go from good to wow. Martin and Jan both are passionate about photography and same passion reflects in their exemplary efforts to make sure every participant became friends with their camera and lenses and had great pictures of Iceland. Visiting Ice cave was one of the coolest experiences for most of us on the trip. Thanks to Martin for going an extra mile to reschedule Ice cave tour with another company earlier than the planned one as weather was getting miserable. As an added benefit, everyone in the group was enthusiastic and fun to travel with.
Iceland is beautiful country and exploring it with Inscape photography tour was a perfect fit. Now, whenever I take a picture whether phone or camera, I am always thinking “Have I clipped the highlights in the sky or how can I make this composition better” 🙂 Hope to explore another part of the world with Inscape Photo Tours in future.
Inscape Photo Tours provided one fantastic trip. Jan and Martin took us to the beauty of Iceland and we spent twelve days with ourselves and our camera shutter’s being busy catching the world thru their eyes. No matter what your experience level or equipment that you brought, they could both help you. Trip more than met my expectations. Personally, before this trip I primarily took pictures of birds and wildlife. Taking pictures of landscape and understanding Martin and Jan’s desire to create composition in your picture was ‘eye opening’ for me. I’m truly glad I went on this trip. At the age of 72 I was able to keep up with the ‘group’ and they pushed us to have as many experiences with our camera as possible. My time with my camera will be better, in the future, because of what I learned and experienced with Inscape during this trip.
What an incredible tour! I was able to get the most iconic shots I’ve been after for years. Each day was extremely well organized so that we were able to best make use of the light and location. Even when the weather wasn’t cooperating, there were contingency plans on what best to shoot so that no time was ever wasted.
Martin and Jan’s expertise and friendliness was over the top. Their unique ability to provide individual instruction on both composition and editing to photographers of various levels of experience was amazing. I’m thrilled having finished this photo tour with dozens of pictures I’m proud to hang on the wall and can’t wait to sign up for the next trip!
It was a photography trip for the history books! Each day was filled with portfolio worthy images, a perfect combination of destination, subject, lighting and composition. Martin and Jan provided amazing guidance both at location and in post-editing to help me take the best images ever. The trip was filled with adventure, laughs and thrills. The memories and friendships our entire group made will last a lifetime. I’m looking forward to many more photographic adventures with Inscape Photo!
I am thankful that i was able to participate in your photo tour in Iceland. I was both a great learning experience and a chance for me to get out of my comfort zone. The student to teacher ratio was excellent! You and Jan were able to spend time with us, teaching, correcting, and sharing with us your expertise. I am glad that aside from the technical aspects which confuse me sometimes, you also taught us the value of the story behind the picture. I really appreciated that!
I was a bit nervous regarding the extent of the physical and extreme environmental challenges of photography in Iceland at this time of year. However, Martin’s planning and attention to the details of the itinerary ensured a very enjoyable trip. Each and every day was fun and filled with learning regardless of what the weather dished out. Both Martin and Jan were committed to making sure everyone came away with great photos and the knowledge to continue in their photography journey. If we weren’t outdoors on a shooting adventure, we were indoors learning how to post process our photos to their greatest potential. Regardless of the level of ability, experience or camera equipment, everyone was equally inspired and encouraged by both Martin and Jan with genuine enthusiasm for our learning. I will treasure the memories of this adventure!
This Photo Tour with Martin was absolutely great! We did this in autumn, the colors of the fields and the woods were stunning. Under Martin’s guidance, I took incredible photographs, I never thought I would ever be able to shoot such beautiful pictures. Not only the autumn colors, the beautiful sights in Prague, Telc, and Cesky Krumlov, and Martin’s insightful photography advice made the tour a great success for me. A highlight was the (photographic of course) shooting of owls, a new experience, that also resulted in beautiful images.
Everything was very well organized, we stayed in excellent lodgings, and even had the occasion to taste Czech wines (which were excellent). Martin is an incredibly nice person, very patient and always in a good mood. I hope to join him on a photo tour again in the future. Thanks, Martin!
The October Czech Republic photo tour was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Martin is an exceptional photographer and understands how to communicate his skills in an easy-going and gentle way. He also makes sure to take care of the needs of his clients, ranging from airport/train station transportation to choosing comfortable and clean accommodations. During our photo shoots, Martin made sure to give each participant guidance and help with any questions regarding camera use or settings. He is also exacting on composition and emphasized how even very small changes to composition can improve an image significantly. Within Prague, Martin took us to locations where we could get both iconic shots and lesser known but excellent and interesting photos as well. As we ventured to other locations, we were given opportunities to shoot unusual and scenic landscapes, beautiful small towns, a castle with its lovely grounds, and owls and birds of prey. Martin encouraged us to use lines and curves within a scene as elements of composition and stressed the power of simplicity. The opportunity to photograph owls and a falcon was simply amazing and was my favorite part of the tour.
For the post-processing sessions, Martin preferred to work with each of us one-on-one. This approach allowed for personalized instruction and editing of a selection of each client’s photos. Other group members were welcome to observe.
On the Czech Republic tour, there is a maximum of five clients, which keeps the group small and allows each of us time with Martin. Our group consisted of people from four continents and it was a joy to get to know each of them. We all traveled well together, enjoyed sharing photos, and had interesting and fun discussions. I would highly recommend Inscape Photo Tours. Martin’s dedication to each photographer’s positive experience is evident. His primary intention is for photographers to be provided with the opportunity and guidance that will result in excellent photographs. It was a real pleasure to have such a conscientious and personable guide. Thank you for the exceptional experience!
“I had a wonderful experience of joining Martin and Jan on a recent Iceland photography tour. The entire tour was well planned, good accommodations, safe transportation and spacious cars for 2 small groups. Jan and Martin provided knowledgeable in photography as well as the locations for the best ways to get amazing shots. It was a pleasant, fun, a lot of memories photo trip, I enjoyed every moment!”
This was our second photo tour with Inscape and just as before all details were nicely handled to maximize time for photography. Martin had great locations lined up for photo stops but also showed flexibility in some impromptu locations, one of which turned out to be amazing. Martin and Jan (often one of his guides) are both great photographers and helpful with issues that arise with cameras or gear.
They help with composition if needed or will just let you go off to shoot alone if that is what you prefer. They are both quite pleasant and fun to be around. We had a great time and have already signed up for another photo tour! Thanks guys!
I stumbled across Inscape Photo Tours on one of my many internet searches – and am I ever thrilled that I did! Right from the first contact by email with my initial enquiry, Martin was attentive and helpful answering all of my many questions. And my experience on the tour itself was no different. The tour was extremely well organised and ran absolutely smoothly. I have no doubt about how much work was put in behind the scenes by Martin and his team to make sure things went according to plan – and everything did – making the tour an absolute pleasure to be a part of.
Not only did I learn an enormous amount about landscape photography and editing techniques under Martin’s guidance – I had an absolute blast! (Made even better by the awesome group I was on tour with:-). I would have no hesitation recommending Inscape Photo Tours to both beginner and experienced photographers alike – and I for one will definitely book another tour with Inscape.
Thank you Inscape!
I have been in Prague before and have taken many “tourist” pictures, but on this photo tour, I was not a tourist. I was a photographer (and Martin had to occasionally remind me of that. ) This time, I took photos that were different from those that millions of tourists take every day.
Our tour group visited several places that tourists don’t even know about, and when we shot in the popular tourist locations, we were shooting photos in a different way – seeing the tourist sites through the eyes of a photographer. We looked at details, patterns, and interesting compositions in the Moravian landscapes, and in the many different types of architecture and streets across the various cities and towns. We even photographed some ordinary, mundane things and turned them into fascinating photographs. One afternoon, when it started to rain during our shoot, we found something else to photograph and came away with creative, unusual pictures. I even captured a photo of a “ghost” lurking around the Old Town Hall tower.
Some new techniques for me were: shooting in very poorly-lit locations, shooting long exposures, and using ND filters. I also learned new Photoshop techniques that make pictures pop out more.
Overall, the tour was an exciting experience and I have greatly benefited from it. I am not a tourist. I am a photographer!
“Attending the workshop in Iceland 2017 with Inscape Photo Tours was one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life. Jan and Martin are not only excellent photographers, but also great friends. They do much more than teaching you the techniques and art of photography. They know how to inspire and motivate the attendants. More than a group, it became a supportive team. I had lots of fun and I´ll never forget it.”
I have booked 2 photo tours with Inscape Photo Tours, the first was the trip to Iceland and the 2nd one was to New Zealand. Both tours were extremely well organized. Both Martin and Jan are excellent in assisting the clients.
I had a fantastic time on both tours and can only recommend taking part in these tours. I am already preparing for the next on in Lofoten!
