Dear streettogs, I am insanely pumped to share and introduce you to my brand new workshop — ZEN STREET PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP, which will be hosted in San Francisco, the Bay Area, April 20, 2024, Saturday from 11 AM to 4 PM.

The vision

In today’s Brave New World of AI, ChatGPT, DALL-E, DALL-E 3… what is the role of photographers?

Honestly my ultimate thought is simple; photography as a tool of focusing, zen, minimalism… ironically enough, detaching ourselves from media, the internet, our phones, etc.

My vision for this workshop is simple and pure; the opportunity for you to have fun, zen out, and to elevate and advance your photography, your street photography, your creative vision and your photo skills.


For me, my personal thought is that photography, street photography and technology is zen meditation. In fact, my philosophy … the goal isn’t to become “happier“, but to become more focused, more zen. Meditations by KIM >

This workshop will be an insanely great opportunity for you to finally zen out and focus on your photography. How to find more autotelic joy in it, how to minimize and strengthen your compositions, and how to advance your creative vision.

  2. Creative uses of flash. How to use flash in street photography.
  3. How to see more creatively and artistically. How to increase your visual acuity.

  6. How to become more stealth, more phantom-like in street photography.
  7. How to conquer your fears of shooting street photography, approaching strangers, in a zen, calm, and confident manner.
