Much thanks to the help of my girlfriend Cindy, I have nearly finalized the dates most of my street photography workshops for 2013.

If you want to take your street photography to new heights by building your confidence, better incorporating design & composition to your work, and want to meet other like-minded street photographers — these workshops are perfect for you.

3 Upcoming Street Photography Workshops in Japan (Intro, Intermediate/Advanced, Film) in Tokyo and Kyoto – November, 2012

(Above photo from my “Dark Skies Over Tokyo” series I shot last year in Tokyo)

Hey streettogs, I am excited to announce that I will be teaching a series of 3-day street photography workshops in Tokyo and Kyoto with my  good friend Bellamy Hunt, aka Japan Camera Hunter.

The first street photography workshop I did in Tokyo was last year, and it was a massive success. Passionate street photographers came from all across the globe, including the states, Europe, and Asia. We didn’t expect such a great turnout, but it was definitely one of the most memorable workshops I have taught.

There is something unique about shooting street photography in Tokyo.

The city has a sense of energy, a pulse, which inspires shooting street photography. The skyscrapers climb upwards endlessly, the colors are dazzling, qnd the streets never end with an infinite supply of people. It is quite unlike anywhere else in the world I have shot street photography.

Behind The Scenes: Downtown LA Street Photography Workshop with Rinzi Ruiz and Student Photos

I am sad to say that I just had one of the last street photography workshops in Downtown LA for the near future. For those of you who don’t know, I will be moving to Michigan at the end of August to be with my girlfriend Cindy and support her with her academic career. Also have some good project ideas for shooting in Detroit as well!

Here is some of the behind-the-scenes footage of my recent street photography workshop with Rinzi Ruiz which was focused on projects. The 3-day workshop was short, but intense – and focused on making a project in Downtown LA. 3 days isn’t nearly enough time to work on a serious project, but was a strong foundation for all of the workshop attendees.

After Rinzi and I judged the workshop attendees projects, we decided that the work of Dan Manwaring was the winner- as his project was tightly edited, coherent, and told a lot about his character (he is a tough-looking guy with a soft heart). Runner-up was Darren Wong who shot a cliche topic (dogs) but did it from very unorthodox angles and created some fresh images.

Behind the Scenes: Street Photography Workshop in Kuala Lumpur with Leica Store Malaysia

I recently taught a street photography workshop in Kuala Lumpur at the Leica Store Malaysia and had a phenomenal time. Huge shout-outs to Shannel and rest of the Leica Store Malaysia crew for making it such a successful workshop! The above video include some snippets shot with my GoPro HD camera in the streets of Kuala Lumpur during the workshop. As you can see, nobody got punched in the face – and most people in the are are extremely friendly!
