What’s the Story?
Follow the footsteps of famed streets photographers such as Tatsuo Suzuki or Daido Moriyama and shoot the wildlife of the Tokyo jungle. Vivid colors, funky fashion, and friendly street life await you in Harajuku and Shibuya, the center of youth culture in Tokyo.
What We’ll Shoot
Get out of your comfort zone and get close to the locals on this street photography workshop. Learn how to shoot in the chaos of Tokyo’s crowds and get confidence in approaching strangers and shooting candid photos in public. You’ll also be coached on various composition techniques that will enhance your photos, such as creatively utilizing reflections and contrasting light.
Where We’ll Explore
We will start in Harajuku and dive into the masses of people on Takeshita street. Seeking a respite from the chaos, we’ll explore a hidden shrine and garden, before heading back into the crowds of Omotesando. Finally, we will venture on to Shibuya and explore its back alleys and hidden districts such as Nonbeiyokocho (Drunkard’s Lane).
