ABOUT HOI AN 360
Hoi An 360 was created by Alden Anderson after 6 months of traveling around Vietnam and more than two years of travelling around the world. He loves to connect with people and discover how they live and to try and understand their culture and way of life. It shows in his photography as well as the stories of his subjects. This desire to explore and learn about the world has taken him to the snow swept plateaus of Newfoundland to the towering peaks surrounding Mount Everest.
By 18 Alden was traveling around the world on a video documentary team, from maximum security prisons in South Africa to the streets of Tokyo and the Sydney Opera House. He has worked as a Photographer, Editor, Cinematographer, Visual Effects Artist and Producer on live performances, TV shows and major Hollywood movies and in 2009 he won an Emmy award for his outstanding visual effects work on ESPN.
While he loved his career, the desire to see the world and learn about the culture and history of far off lands never left him. And so in 2016 he decided to leave his job and set off on a journey around the world, which eventually brought him to Vietnam.
Alden now resides in Hoi An, Vietnam. He has created Hoi An 360 to share his passion for photography and for the culture. At Hoi An 360, you will learn not only the technical and creative aspects of photography but also the culture of Vietnam and connect with the locals.
