Burma themed cruises for Photography and Music Cruise

May 10, 2017

In addition to its regular sailings, The Strand Cruise has recently added a series of themed cruises sailing throughout 2017 and 2018. Each departure will follow The Strand Cruise’s scheduled four-night Bagan-Mandalay itinerary, but be enhanced by the presence of professional experts hosting each voyage and presenting additional activities on board and during shore excursions designed to enrich passengers’ experience of Myanmar and its culture.

Photography Cruise

PHOTOGRAPHY CRUISE

Date: Monday 16 October 2017

Price from USD 1,875 per person sharing a Deluxe Cabin based on double occupancy

Myanmar is a photographer’s delight, with glowing sunrises, expansive landscapes and characterful people. Professional photographer, Lucas Gurdjian, will join passengers on The Strand Cruise on 16th October to share his knowledge on how to capture this once in a lifetime experience and improve their skills as a photographer. Lucas, who has over 15 years experience as a photographer, spent three years travelling the world, including a two year journey cross-country from Paris to Bangkok, the reportage for which won him the ‘Best online multimedia travel diary’ award at the Clermont-Ferrand Biennale. He will coach passengers on different styles of photography, including landscapes, food photography and portraits; tips on framing, lighting, aperture and depth of field; as well as post-production techniques. Lucas has already travelled the route of the cruise from Bagan to Mandalay and identified the best times to be in each location to capture the best light, for example, for sunrise over Bagan.

Music Cruise

MUSIC CRUISE
