October 2012 Tokyo Workshop

Fear of straying off the beaten path. Nikon D3, 24-70/2.8

I’m in the early planning stages of a small (3-5 participant) private workshop in Tokyo this October (2012). Dates aren’t fixed yet, that’ll depend on the participants’ schedules. Details as follows:

– 3 days, based in Tokyo (but I’m not ruling out quick side trips to appreciate the autumn foliage)
– Two days of shooting – covering whatever specific topics the participants would like to learn, but I have some ideas (travel, landscape, photojournalism and making sequences of images into stories, learning composition fundamentals with compacts, night photography etc.)
– One day of editing/ selecting images and photoshop post-processing

Depending on the number of participants, costs will range from US$1,300 to US$2,200; this is for tuition only and assumes you live in Tokyo, or can easily get there. Would be ideal for Asian residents, as it’s just a short commute.

Please drop me an email or leave a comment below if you’re interested.

Thanks! MT


  1. Hello Ming, as a recent follower of your blog, I would be interested in any future workshops you will have, especially if in Tokyo. Thanks. Harv

    Hi Ming, love your posts & portfolio. Are there any open spots left for your Tokyo workshop in October? And if so, have you set on your actual dates yet? By the way, I am a strictly M9 shooter, so will that make me the odd ball among all the DSLRs shooters you will be teaching? Thanks in advance for your feedback. At this point, I am not sure yet if I can make it there, as I am located in Taipei, and would need to make travel arrangements–permitting that my wife will let me go 🙂

    • Hi Philip, thanks for the compliments and interest in the Tokyo workshop. I’m in the process of collecting deposits now; unfortunately there aren’t any spots left, but would you like me to let you know if there’s a cancellation? It should be confirmed in the next week or so. Dates are 12-14 October inclusive. There are actually a couple of M shooters on the trip, a couple of DSLR shooters, and I’ll be using the OM-Ds, so it’s a good mix. After all, you should use whatever tool works best for you.
