What you'll do

This photo workshop focuses on black and white, high contrast photography in the urban environment. Of course guests don’t have to shoot in Black and White (shooting in raw won’t allow that) during the workshop but the focus is on shooting images that will look brilliant when later converted to black and white. When I visit a new city I want to find all those cool locations I’ve seen on Instagram but don’t know how to find. We’ll explore a few of these cool locations and learn about how to create images that incorporate geometry, reflections, shadows and leading lines. During the workshop I'll be offering tips and advice about photography composition, use of light and capturing the moment with your camera. As well as guidance on using shadows, silhouettes, reflections and leading lines.

Learn more about Laurence

Laurence

I’m a Tokyo-based street photographer from the U.K. I moved to Tokyo in 2009 and this sparked my interest in street photography. Initially I was using just my iPhone for photography and this led to Apple selecting me to represent Tokyo for their ‘Shot on iPhone 7’ campaign in 2017. After the campaign, I invested in a Sony digital camera but continue to shoot with both cameras interchangeably. In 2017 & 2018, I won the ‘Street Photography’ category in the Mobile Photography Awards. For the past year I’ve been running regular photography workshops via Eyexplore.com.

Where you'll be

We begin in Ebisu, with its sprawling Garden Place painted in shadows cast by its trellised canopy. Next, we head to Roppongi for a few hidden spots before entering the impressive National Art Center to take advantage of its massive glass facade, and the shadows it casts. Finally, we’ll head to Yurakucho for an exploration of the hidden depths of the Tokyo International Forum.
