What you'll do
During this evening workshop, I'll teach you how to capture the beauty of Tokyo by night. We'll start by going for dinner at an Izakaya—a casual Japanese restaurant similar to a pub—where I'll discuss what makes a night photograph interesting. I will also give you tips on the camera settings you need to get good results. We will then head out to a few particularly photogenic areas of Tokyo for an approximately two to three-hour shoot. This is a beginner level workshop for those with a digital SLR camera but still struggle to get good shots at night. A small maximum group size of six people means that each of you will get the individual support you need to improve your skills. Afterwards, I will review your images and give you personal feedback over e-mail.
Simple Izakaya dinner Please let me know in advance if there's anything you can't eat.
I'm a Swedish photographer and journalist, and have lived in Tokyo since 2008. Through my work, I've covered most issues related to Japan, but travel is the topic I'm most passionate about. I've worked for media outlets like Bloomberg, Elle, TED, and GQ. My photos have also been used in advertising campaigns by VSCO and Marriott Hotels. I've also appeared on Japanese television a couple of times.
Where you'll be
We'll meet up near the Asakusa Station and will enjoy dinner at a local Izakaya, then head out to shoot at a few different locations in Tokyo. During the photo shoot, we'll cover how to photograph famous tourist attractions, urban landscapes, and a bit of street life.
