    A teacher with a photography habit, Etienne’s true passion is enabling other photographers to find and create better images of the places that mean most to him. He believes that the best way to learn is to teach and he’s happiest helping fellow photographers to improve. Pics of Asia was initially a one-person show, but Etienne has now assembled a team of outstanding photography guides and teachers, all based –as he is –in Asia. Although each of them is a unique individual, they share Etienne’s vision: hands-on photography tuition in image-rich environments. Etienne’s deep love for Asia shines through in every picture he takes.
