Diving through Ginza and Shimbashi looking for lines, patterns, and other interesting architecture to use in our images. The guide, Stephane, was very friendly and accommodating. He shared some ideas on composition and how to make your images stand out. It is a professionally managed tour. The guide will make sure you enjoy yourself and keep you safe during the walk. Good for all skill levels. Bring any camera, the guide will make sure you will be able to use it and make great memories.
I cannot recommend this tour high enough. Lukasz is a fantastic guide, he knows a lot of hidden spots in the city to take interesting photos, without being in the way for other pedestrians. I truly enjoyed my walk through Tokyo with him. I learned a lot about street photography, composition of images and he showed me a trick or two for my camera that comes in very handy. This is by no means a tour that requires expert knowledge, so anyone with an interest in photography should feel comfortable joining. No matter your skill level, you'll learn a trick or two along the way. I personally appreciated the chats in between the photos, getting to know Lukasz, hearing his story and the fact that he really cares about his participants since it was July and it was very hot, I was the only participant for this tour and was afraid it would get cancelled, but he explained that he would never cancel just because of a single participant. The Tokyo Metropolis tour was the second tour I took with Eyexplore, I went for the night photography tour the day before, see separate review
2 very amateur photographers had a fantastic time walming the streets of Tokyo with Exel the guide. He was patient and explained things beautifully. If I ever come back I will do this again!
Again not a five star but a real six star knock it out of the park tour. Lukasz Palkas' small group setting and walking photography tour gave us some amazing shots of the architecture and unique angles of a variety of places in Tokyo. I would have never thought of spending time in Tokyo taking pictures from such a unique angle but my oh my are our pictures amazing! Lukasz makes this entire experience memorable. You seriously have to put one of his photography tours at the very top of your list to do. Tokyo is a walk around city in various neighborhoods and this tour does it all. He is also the type of person you just want to pack up with you and take him every where with you in Japan to capture your sights. Your pictures will make you fall in love all over again with Japan. Sign up now if you are going to Tokyo.
Definitively a very nice idea, giving photography lessons in Tokyo is an excellent idea. This city has one of the best architectures I have seen, everything is quite new, I have been told that old buildings have to be rebuilt after a proper period of time. The tour passes by two corporate area and you will be given the opportunity to catch the Shinkansen in between the buildings, people moving in the metro, get the best from architecture details and some additional frames. It is better if you take at list a semi-professional camera, nevertheless a good cell phone is accepted to go on this ride.
It was the great photography tour. My guideI forgot his name. Sorry gave us the best spot for capturing another face of Tokyo and how to photo those things with his different eyes. I had the wonderful time to learn how to see the buildings and architecture in the modern metropolitan area of Tokyo whthin such few hours.
