Each of them beautiful and mystical in their own way.
Volcanoes, ancient ceremonies and stunning landscapes allowing you, the photographer, to capture green lush rice fields and experience the friendly local Balinese people.
Big and bold and bursting with wildlife. You will get to meet the beautiful orangutans, capture the magnificent Hornbill bird sweeping across the sky and experience indigenous tribal cultures as we stop at small riverside villages and meet the Dayak people.
“David Metcalf’s long association with the Dayaks allows us a unique visit to a special traditional Dayak village. The Dayaks love to meet foreigners and willingly engage with you as a photographer. This gives you the chance to take some excellent portrait photographs and have a genuine exchange and a cross-culture dialogue.”

David is a resident of Bali and opened Taksu Photo Gallery in 2015. He is well versed in Bali and Dayak culture and over the years has discovered the best places for photographing and the best time of the day to capture some of the most unique and stunning landscapes Bali has to offer.
“These photographs were taken with a combination of Nikon D800 and D810 full frame cameras with a variety of lenses, including: Sigma 35mm, f1.4; 50mm, f1.4; 70 – 200mm, f2.8; Tamron 150 – 600 mm; lensebaby.”
So come and share David’s passion and love for the people from these wonderful islands.
“If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given. It is the photographer, not the camera that is the instrument.”
“I joined David Metcalf’s photography tour and let me tell you, as a photographer who has lived in Bali for eight years, this is the absolutely far and away best thing I have ever done in Bali. Not only did we see drop-dead vistas, volcanos, waterfalls, Barong dancers and visited a Balinese family’s home where we were fed like kings and queens, we ALSO received a top-notch, individualized photography instruction from David – a rock star photographer in his own right. This tour is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for amateur as well as professional photographers.”
Tripadvisor Review, February 2016
One of the most powerful emotions that people feel when visiting ancient cultures, is the desire to want to help and contribute in a positive way to local community projects.
Through our carefully nurtured and long term relationships built with the village elders, initiatives have been put in place to support educational eco-programs and sustainable solutions.
