Arnaud Foucard is a French photographer based in Vietnam since 2000. Passionate about travel and street photography, he leads daily departure photography tours in Ho Chi Minh and the nearby Mekong Delta, and also organizes longer scheduled tours through the most photogenic areas all around Vietnam.
Before becoming a photographer, he spent ten years in Vietnam as a tour operator and as a result knows the country intimately.
Photography has always been his passion, and so one day he decided to turn that passion into a living – he now devotes his time to helping fellow photography enthusiasts discover lesser-known and picturesque parts of Vietnam, all the while helping them to improve their photographic skills.
Working in tourism field for more than 15 years in different positions : Tour guide, Travel consultant, I have been almost over our country, Vietnam.
My most interesting hobby is bicycle. It is so wonderful to ride a bike through the villages with its own pagodas, temples, ancient houses, to meet and talk with friendly local people to understand more about their culture & history. It is like on the heaven when cycling on the green rice paddy fields, vegetable gardens, on the dikes along the river with cows; water buffaloes; cute children… all those make me so happy with life and our country. Not only business, but it is selfish if I only keep it for my self.
I would love to share this passion with not only my friends, colleagues but also with foreign tourist who really want to experience our real local life.
