Bespoke photography lessons in Tokyo & Greater Tokyo Area
Patient teachers, our schedule is flexible; early morning, later at night, weekdays and weekends, your time is our time.
Through our email exchange, we decide together of what you want to learn, and, regarding the day and hours you want to take the tuition, how it is best to learn it and where - which location(s) - we will be able to shoot.
We are not only camera geeks, but literate with photography culture, to help you not only to achieve a technical image but to teach you how to see the world photographically.
We are not guided tours; this is not our job. We teach photography, from the basics to more advanced practices to help hobbyists to develop their skills and visual literacy.
