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

“After two years in Hong Kong I finally bought myself a digital camera to capture the sights of the city – but as my prior experience was limited to only using the camera on my phone I knew wasn’t getting the most out of my new purchase. Therefore a lesson with an expert seemed like the next logical step – but I wanted more than a technical lesson. So when I stumbled across Michael’s website, and the range of workshops he offers, I was delighted. From the start, it was evident that he was knowledgeable not only about photography but about unusual locations around Hong Kong. After a day exploring many hidden gems around Central I felt that I had learnt new skills that I could use in lots of different situations – helping me make my photography interesting and exciting. Michael’s support extended beyond the session with a follow-up email and feedback on some of my shots which I really appreciated. I’m really looking forward to booking my next session with him.”
