Straight off the top, our workshops are about street photography. Our beat is Hong Kong and, that’s about it.

And, while Hong Kong is a great tourist destination, we don’t do walking or photo tours. We don’t do glamour. It’s just you, me and the street [and maybe some rural locations thrown in for good measure].

There are 3 tenants to my workshops – what I do, what you do and what we can do together. From my side, there’s the work I’ve done and the stories behind the shots, shooting techniques and the whole DAM thing [Digital Asset Management].

From your side, let’s look at and see what you can do, what it is that you may be looking for and what you’re hoping to do and accomplish while participating in these workshops.

Together, there is the whole sharing and caring thing. Crucial and critical. This is where the reviews and group critiques come in.

Over five extraordinary days – [TBD] – I will lead a group of no more than 10 photographers through a daily program of shooting, reviews, group critiques, editing and mentoring – together with the opportunity to learn from their peers to help develop a unique visual language.

Our workshops are typically held over 5 days. We hope to schedule the workshops to coincide with any of the many cultural events that take place in Hong Kong through out the year.

  • Each workshop is limited to 10 participants.
  • Our workshops are specific to experienced photographers with an interest in street photography and the visual narrative – story telling for want of a better term.
  • Workshop participants should be able to show a good level of photographic aptitude and a strong desire to learn.
  • Candidates will be expected to arrive comfortable with their equipment and ready to photograph.
  • Photographers will be selected on the perceived benefit to their career and development.
  • Photographers should prepare sufficient research relating to what they wish to shoot prior to arrival. A story list can be provided for inspiration; however candidates are expected to formulate realistic projects specific to our geography and time provided.
  • Participants will be responsible for their own time management. Due to the fast pace of our workshops, we highly recommend that participants bring and use their own laptops and appropriate software to do their image editing, prep and production.
  • Participants wishing to use film may do so, but at their own cost. They must also be aware of the time constraints involved.
  • Please specify in your application your preferred media.
  • Please note – all workshops will be conducted in English.

A typical workshop programme will be set up as follows:
  • An evening get together prior to the workshop starting – this as a personal “meet and greet” session for all the workshops participants and myself. Hopefully, all participants will have got to know each other before embarking on the workshop via a social media group setup for this purpose.
  • On the first day, an early morning briefing session to run through the workshop’s programme. After the briefing session and, if there is no featured event, a tour through some my favourite shooting locations. If the workshop is tied to a featured event, we will travel to a location or locations that are like to present the best photo opportunities.
  • During the afternoon of the first day, there is like to be a classroom session to discuss topics related to photography – whether in doing or aspects related to image prep, digital workflow and so forth.
  • On the evening of the first day, this will be left open – to either shoot, eat or sleep and whatever.
  • On the following 4 days, the workshop will be grouped into work session blocks [for want of a better term]. This scheduling is largely dependent of the social dynamics of the group and any featured events that workshop may be tied to.
  • Typically, there will be a morning session to review the work shot on the day before. The review session will be followed by a morning shoot session, an afternoon shoot sessions and evening shoot session.
  • These shoot sessions are interchangeable.
  • On the last day, the afternoon will be given over to a wrap up session – for final reviews, Q&A’s and the exchange of views and ideas.
More explicit workshop details will given per the listed workshop announcements.
