Street Photography Workshops and Private Courses in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is one of the best places to do urban/street photography because of the electric combination of people, movement and diverse locations to shoot. Day or night, Hong Kong is a rich and photogenic environment, bustling with activity and filled with interesting details, colors and light.
There is always a unique and interesting story to tell through your photography.

My urban photography workshops are a great opportunity to see, experience and shoot Hong Kong from a creative and artistic perspective. My goals for the completion of each session is for you to have learned new tips and techniques; have had ample time to put into practice what you’ve learned; and to go home with some new photos that you are happy with. Join me as we explore the streets of Hong Kong in search of beauty in the fleeting moments!

Praise for Michael Kistler

“I booked a flight and started planning my stay in HK, I felt already a bit lost while researching for this trip.  Hong Kong is so huge, where to start with? …and a bit of a culture shock to expected too. So while not to contact a local photographer? He knows the area and the people! So I found Michael’s website and contacted him. After writing a few mails everything was clear –> very uncomplicated. I met Michael on the next morning after my arrival and first we had a conversation, about interest and level of knowledge in photography. So after he knew me a bit and could customize the day for my “special needs and interests”. After all, I really had a great time this day and Michael showed me some really interesting places in Hong Kong, taught me some creative shooting techniques and how to act with the people. I cannot wait for a next HK trip! I would like to thank you for making that day that great and hope to meet you soon again!”
