EYExplore Tokyo Photo Tour & Workshop - EYExplore trainer in action while coaching

What’s the Story?

Peering up in awe at monolithic steel and glass towers, one can’t help but feel small. Capture that feeling in your photographs, juxtaposing tiny human forms against cold and sterile structures. Contrast the artificial and man-made with the organic—hints of nature and human life surrounded by the Tokyo metropolis.

What We’ll Shoot

We will learn how to create compelling images of architectural elements and the people that populate the city’s concrete environs. You’ll be coached on using composition concepts like leading lines, negative space, and juxtaposition. We’ll practice using these techniques to convey a variety of narratives.

Where We’ll Explore

Our journey will begin in Shiodome—a district walled in with glass and steel skyscrapers. From here we will head to Ginza, famed for its broad avenues lined with intricate examples of avant-garde architecture. Afterward, we will end up in Yurakucho where we will explore the innards of the monolithic Tokyo International Forum.

    It was my first time in Tokyo and, as it’s such a huge city, I opted to sign up for a couple of photo walks to make sure I didn’t miss the hidden photographic gems. I wasn’t disappointed! Small groups with a photographer guide, who not only knows his way around, but also can assist with camera settings for those who aren’t so experienced. Useful tours for both beginners and experienced photographers. I would certainly recommend, and will do again if I ever find myself back in Tokyo.

    Stefan took me on a 1/1 photo excursion all around yarakucho and shiodome. He was very knowledgeable and all around a good dude. Next time I go to Tokyo I want do another eyexplore photography session.

    I spent a week in Tokyo together with my son. He bought himself a camera on his first day and I then discovered this tour and booked it. Best decision of the holiday!!! Lucas was awesome. He taught my son quite a bit about his camera and us both a lot about composition and photography in general. He also took us around a range of interest sites and helped us to see (and take) the awesome photos that were there in front of us. We got great photos! While my son had bought a good camera, I had my iPhone and we both learnt a lot and both got great photos. Lucas is good company, as well as a good teacher. Thanks again Lucas!

    Ich habe zwei verschiedene Anbieter in Tōkyō genommen, und ich kann EYExplorer im direkten Vergleich nur extrem herausnehmen. Sowohl qualitativ als auch preislich…

    My sister and I shared this fantastic outing. Had Lukas and Charles as trainers (a most pleasant and rewarding bonus) and were guided to spots and composition suggestions that were creative and offered a most professional feedback on the resulting product. Would highly recommend this opportunity. Unbeatable cost/benefit workshop.

    If you have a couple of days in Tokyo I can highly recommend to book the “Tokyo by Night tour” at the beginning of your trip. I really got inspired and tried out the shots Stephane encouraged us to do later on, too. Stephane is very knowledgeable and he gave us useful tips. The tour was very inspiring and I made some great shots. I book their “Tokyo Metropolis Photography Tour” as well. Also highly recommendable!

    I booked this tour at short notice when visiting Tokyo with my wife for a few days. Stefan led the course and was excellent, very good knowledge, clear instruction and very useful guidance. There were just three on our trip so plenty of 1 on 1 time with Stefan and we combined some night landscapeshots with street photography. I came away with some good shots and new skills. I suspect the other daytime courses would be good too but couldn’t fit another time into our schedule. Perhaps next time in Japan……..?

    I had a lovely day, it was eye-opening and fun, Lukasz was my instructor and so helpful with hints. I will do it again when/if I come back to Japan just another region. It’s a MUST do for photography lovers.
