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 spent a full day with Michael in January 2016. We spent the day walking around Central, Soho and Sheung Wan searching for a wide variety of urban shots from architecture to street photography, from documentary style to wildly abstract. Michael’s knowledge of Hong Kong and photographic techniques is superb and his enthusiasm for urban photography is contagious. It was a fantastic experience and really reignited my passion for photography. I went out hoping to get 1 shot that would capture what Hong Kong means to me and have come back with a dozen shots that I really love and to be honest am proud to have taken them. I am looking forward to going out with Michael again, but this time in the evening to capture the lights and bustling street scenes of HK nights.”
