Your Guide:

Michael is originally from Toronto, Canada, and has been a professional photographer for over 15 years. He specializes in providing commercial / advertising photography for global brands such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Honda Motors, Bell Mobility, Sprint Telecommunications, TD Bank, and Nintendo. He is also a highly respected photography instructor and has taught advanced photography courses at Ryerson University and The International Academy of Design & Technology for over 6 years. As a working photographer, he is always kept abreast of new developments in the industry, which ultimately transfers to his teachings. As such, his students are always exposed not only to current technology, but also the most effective and efficient techniques on how to apply this technology to image making.

His workshops are taught in English, and are designed to further the education of the many excellent beginner workshops available in Hong Kong. He feels that photographers, whether hobbyist, serious amateur or pro, always yearn to expand their knowledge beyond the basics. He's here to help! The workshops focus on the intensive exploration of 3 key elements: intent, capture, and finesse. Class sizes are small and limited to 10 students at a time. Additionally, private workshops are available for those who desire a fully customized experience catered to their specific interests and needs.

    Michael's Finesse course is well thought out and very thorough. One problem we all face is the bewildering array of choices on how to do simple things. Another is that with digital it is so easy to amass tens of thousands of images. Michael addresses these issues and has answered a lot of burning questions, sharing his knowledge and workflows.

    Was a fun and informative class,..almost one to one. Michael was very approachable, and a lot of my issues with LR were addressed and put to rest. Highly recommended
