3 days photography workshop / 7-10 NOVEMBER 2019

  Tokyo, originally a small fishing village in the late twelfth century, became the capital of Japan after the Emperor Meiji moved from Kyoto in 1868. Nowadays Tokyo, officially Tokyo Metropolis, is ranked most populous metropolitan area in the world with over 38 million people and was named Most Liveable City in the world… (W)


Our 3 days Tokyo Street photography workshops are mostly about street photography. We’ll teach you about composition, light, camera settings and… the moment! But there’s more! Besides walking and exploring the streets of different areas in Tokyo (mostly Shinjuku and Shibuya) we will show you the best 'street' spots...

“Learn how to photograph the moment while exploring the streets of Tokyo. Not only will you learn how to shoot on the streets with more confidence, you will also learn how to choose your best work and post-process your images to create beautiful photographs with impact, photographs that tell a story”

Besides Street Photography we'll also focus on portraits, architecture, sceneries and details. We will be exploring local markets, shrines, urban landscapes, stations, parks, shopping malls and lots more...

Some locations photowalks: Shinjuku, Shibuya, Asakusa...

The Tokyo Street Photography Workshop include photo walks, critique sessions, editing session, a night shoot...

The Tokyo Street Photography Workshops are…
for all levels from the beginner, to the serious amateur, professional photographers and enthusiasts who want to make better pictures in the streets.
