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!

One-to-one Courses/Photo Mentoringdubaiportrait

Urban Photography courses are a great introduction to street photography and suitable for all levels from beginner to professional. As I approach street photography from a more artistic and creative perspective, it is an opportunity to see and explore the urban landscape in new and different ways. After discussing your goals and needs, I will design a plan for you and we will work together to improve your technical knowledge, technique and composition ability while addressing your individual goals. You will receive regular regular feedback/critique and have many opportunities to practice what you have learned. This is ideal for the photographer who wants more than just a one-off session.

Course highlights:

  • customized and tailored around people’s interests with the goal of creating unique compositions in an urban setting
  • no prior knowledge or experience necessary–all you need is your camera and an open-mind
  • no specific camera requirements
  • day or night classes available depending on individual interests
  • explore backstreets, unique spots and cool urban locations in Hong Kong

*Hourly rate for the courses is $900 HKD or $7500 HKD for a 10-hour package. I recommend that each session be at least two hours to maximize our time and be able to practice and reinforce new concepts and techniques.
