Whether you’re an avid photographer, an instagramer or simply love to feast your eyes on landscapes, vacations in Bali provide plenty of possibilities for photographing wonderful scenery.  From hidden waterfalls to expansive paddy fields, white beaches, volcanoes, ancient temples and rural traditional Balinese life, Bali still has many hidden gems to explore.

David our guide for half a day,  has lived in Indonesia for the last eight years. He is the author of three cultural photography books and regularly holds photography exhibitions. David is also a spokesperson for the indigenous Dayak people of Kalimantan and we can really see why. We could feel his genuine passion and desire to share his photographic knowledge and love about Bali’s culture and local Balinese communities.

He always makes sure to take visitors to the greatest locations at the best times of the day, throughout the year and share his insights and passion.

We were punctually picked up by the driver at 5:30 a.m to make sure we could catch the perfect sunrise light over Mount Agung and its rice-fields. Early morning is also the best time to get a real taste of true Balinese life.

The tour lasted for about five hours, which is plenty of time to enjoy sides of Bali that are not commonly shown in pictures. We first stopped in the countryside of Payangan in the north of Ubud where we wandered around enjoying the beautiful scenery during the golden hour, trying out our photography skills. At our request, we then also stopped at Tegalalang Rice Terraces (opposite the main road, which is very quiet and not frequented by a lot of tourists).

The last spot to take photos was a wonderful, traditional market with a cup of rich Balinese coffee at a local stall. Our tour finished at approximately 10:30 a.m.

In addition to the beautiful places that David recommended for us, the landscapes and true rural life that we observed during the tour were also absolutely stunning and a great reward for waking up so early. While answering our questions about Bali and Balinese life, David taught us in an eloquent manner how to improve our technical skills. Including what motivates him to capture the ultimate image, by reading the light and creating the best composition.
