EYExplore Tokyo Photo Tour & Workshop - Photographing the metro during photography workshop
Photographing the metro during photography workshop

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.

    Went on two courses with these guys, Metropolis and Tokyo Night. Had a great time, learnt some new tricks with my camera and most important, took some amazing photos. Thanks guys!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    I had three workshops with Charles and he was great. He gave me very useful tips to improve my framing and camera settings. I really enjoyed my time… Well done!

    Charles looked after us really well. He was informative and helped us get the most from our cameras and took us to some great locations. Highly recommended.

    I did two photo tours with Lukas and Charles. Top notch and well worth the time and money. Not only did my photography improve but I got to see the city and meet some cool cats.
