Yande knows about lighting so he takes you to places where the light is perfect for a photoshoot. He picks you up super early so you're at destination before the first rays of the sun and way ahead other tourists. He has many models to pose for you and can help you with photography tips if you need it. I've hired his services many times over the years. If you're not into photography don't bother and then complain your photos didn't turn out right. This activity is not aimed at you.

If you can tell one end of a camera from the other, ignore the review dated 12 Jan! Yande did an excellent job looking after the four of us on this tour which is aimed at visiting photographers who want to spend the day capturing (their own) great images of Bali. For those of us who were experienced shooters, he got us in the chosen location and pointed us towards good compositions then left us to explore the wider area with zero time pressure. For the less experienced member of our group, he provided instructional support and even lent him the use of his tripod and wide angle lens. We left at 4am to get to the temple before sunrise for 2+ hrs shooting, spent plenty of time exploring Gigi waterfall, had lunch overlooking the inland lakes with an impromptu portrait session with a local woman (not part of the tour - she just happened to be there) then finished with an hour or two exploring rice paddies. Again, zero time pressure. This is exactly what I’m looking for when I have limited time in a foreign country and want to maximise my opportunities for enthusiast-level photography. The cost is exceptionally good value for money and when I return to Bali I will do one of Yande’s other tours. This review is supported by the other three tour participants.

We booked Yande for 2 days before we arrived in Bali. Both days were booked for Sunrise Tours so were very early starts - so it was great too see our guide arrive on time to take up out for the day. He tailored both days not only for our photography requests ensuring we were in the exact right spot at the right time to capture our shots .. but he also adjusted the tours for the days to cater for our physical "difficulties". A true Gentleman and will certainly be looking him up again on our next trip to Bali

The positive aspect that it was on time, but we were disappointed with the service. We were so cold and there were no blankets and no screens with entertainment. I have done short trips to Melbourne and Brisbane in the past and I don’t expect that, but on an International flight I did. My only suggestion to take warm clothes and your own entertainment. However, for us in future for international flights I would look for another option.

I booked this wonderful tour (sunrise 2) after the possitive reviews on Tripadvisor. Yande's website made me more curious.

We left in the early morning from Seminyak. Arrived just in time for the sunrise in Danua Beratan. Yande was very helpful in finding the best spot. He also helped with the settings of my new camera. It improved my photography.

Other highlights were Danu buyan, Danu tamblingan and the beautiful rice fields of Jatiluwih.

Last year I stayed at Ubud, and I took the Ubud area photo tour. This time I want to explore more sites of Bali Island, and I took Yanda's Sunrise Tour #2 on June 23, 2019. The hotel pickup at Sunur Beach was right on time. and we arrived Ulun Danu Temple before sunrise to capture the magic moment of this water temple. Yanda pointed out to me the various locations to photography this iconic symbol of Bali. The rest of the photo tour covered the Balinese gate, water fall, twin lakes and the rice field. Overall I am satisfied with Yanda's Sunrise Tour #2, and the result of my photos.

Found Yande through Tripadvisor and booked his Sunrise 2 tour for yesterday. He was prompt on picking us up and we covered the itinerary as described and this made sure we avoided many of the crowds at some more popular stops. He speaks really good English as he is a warm and friendly host, making sure we had water and appropriate bathroom breaks.

On arrival for sunrise, he gave prompts on the best places to shoot from and was quick to know where my timer setting was on my camera (something I never use) after I stupidly forgot my new batteries to my shutter release cable. Doh.

He's a man of few words but chatted when we did and was patient when I was slow navigating the steep steps to GitGit waterfall (FYI It's a pretty good workout!)

He clearly knows the island well and we covered a lot of ground in 1 day, honestly I wish I had booked longer with him to get some time for some portraits in local villages and the water temple. I had already had a day with another photography guide and really wish I had just booked 2 days with Yande as that wasn't quite so successful.

Overall a great day and good value for money. On booking I wish I had known a bit more about being able to customize a day more. I was crazy busy at work before coming out to Bali and didn't have time to push too much and would ask that maybe Yande could be more forthcoming on what he can offer, but I'm being pretty nit picky with that, really just a suggestion on something that could make his website even better.

What a fantastic couple of days we spent with Yande. Being avid amateur photographers we set off on a whistle stop trip to Bali. Not having much time to find the best locations to shoot we enlisted Yande's services.
He collected us punctually from our hotel and took us to some amazing spots in the island. Yande is friendly and speaks fluent English. We felt very comfortable travelling and shooting with him.
We shot at three different places each day and at each he organised us local inhabitants to use as models. This really added to the photos.
For us the traditional village was the highlight and we also spent a mystical few hours in the mist and rain at the gates of heaven.
I would strongly recommend Yande to any level of photographer wanting to capture the beauty of the island and its people.

Dear Valued Clients, The most important I need to know in my tour whether my clients are interested in landscape or portrait more, that will make the tour interested. I am very happy that you enjoy the tour, hope to see you again
