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 took an awesome session with Michael in Shibuya. After going over what we were going to cover we hit the streets. First off, was the famous Shibuya scramble. I have taken photos at that insane intersection before, they sucked. Under Michaels tutelage I took some photos that do not suck, ones I am more than happy with. We strolled around some other parts of the city that are not as well known, but more interesting in other ways, Michael definitely knows his way around Shibuya he took me places I had never really noticed before. He taught me what to look for and how to take the right kind of shots. I was most impressed that I learned how to look at the urban jungle in an entirely new light, honestly it was a revelation. I had been to Shibuya many times, but after that day I really saw everything differently. Understanding how to look at the environment was invaluable to helping me take some interesting photos. The feedback after the session was great, and seriously helped me understand what makes a photo great and what does not. I absolutely recommend taking a session with Michael, you will see things differently and learn a lot of useful skills to up your photography game.”
