The experience gained so far, as well on the photographic as the tour guide part, teach me that a training in a group context is not made for everyone.
Thanks to my tour guide activity this last 8 years, I have been able to travel all around Japan from North to South (Hokkaido - Kyushu) passing by the summit of Mount Fuji.
That’s why I decided to create this new photo tour and experience in this amazing city that is Tokyo.
It's dedicated to those who want to discover or rediscover the city and learn photography in individual sessions with the coaching of a tutor.
During our day of shooting in Tokyo, I'll be able to clarify any doubt in specific photographic areas with practical advice and theoretical knowledge.

Photography and Tokyo are two things that are going well together.
In addition to our walks in the city, our tours by bike and hikes, Nicolas wished to share his photographic knowledges for one day through a photo tour in Tokyo.
No matter if you have only 1 free day during your stay in Japan and want to discover Tokyo while improving your photography or post-processing skills, I'll be glad to meet you on my one-to-one Tokyo Workshop.
First, I pick you up at the location of your choice (famous place, hotel lobby,...). Then I simply guide you through Tokyo’s nicest locations and it's surroundings by telling you stories, anecdotes, and obviously, shot some pictures.
Of course, all this happens in a friendly atmosphere.
What can you gain in a day
The topics that will be discussed during the Tokyo Workshop (depending on the chosen level):
Tripod use optimization
Exposure triangle (ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed)
Depth of Field
Advantages of using Manual mode or aperture mode depending on the situation.
Advantages of shooting in RAW format
Instruments for the composition and evaluation of the scene
Use of filters (Polarizer, ND, GND)
Basic post-production workflow (Lightroom, Photoshop)
Introduction to some advanced post-production techniques (Exposure Blending, HDR, Panorama), only for the ADVANCED level.
The one-to-one Tokyo Workshop can also provide you on request a section related to Post-Processing.
You will find a list of the minimum gear you need to bring for the day.
For sure the most important is your camera with some lenses. Things like a tripod are optional and anyway, I will adapt myself to your gear.
Please, let me know your photography skills in advance even if all the levels are more than welcome. The idea is to learn together!
A DSLR or Mirrorless camera
The Lenses you use most ( ideally focal lengths 24-70mm and 70-200mm)
Memory Cards (If possible a couple)
Clothing (adapting to season)
A wide-angle lense
A laptop with lightroom if you want to learn post-processing
A remote control
The basic knowledge of photography
