Japan Travel Photography 2019

Photograph Japan in Autumn

Grand Master Photographers, Mike Langford and Jackie Ranken invite you to join their travel photography tour to Japan in November. Photograph the autumn colours that transform famous temples and gardens into kaleidoscopes of colour. Photograph the fallen leaves that create gentle patterns on the moss covered ground and paving stones, while the multi coloured orange, yellow and red maple leaves help to frame and add depth to beautifully designed spaces.

Photograph wild Macaque Snow Monkeys as they warm themselves in the natural springs near Yudanaka. They are wonderful subjects to photograph and their antics are fun to watch.

Combine these highlights with experiencing Japanese culture at its best, makes this travel photography workshop one of the best

Travel to Japan to photograph the autumn colours, Snow Monkey, urban and the rural landscapes in creative ways.

 THe Critique Process

When travelling, Mike and Jackie you will receive valuable feedback, support and guidance.  

 "This is a photography experience it's not just a tour where we take you to our favourite places. We want you to do produce images that you are proud of and want to print."
