Had a great time, learned a lot, and will go home with some amazing nighttime images of Tokyo--what could be better?!

Lukasz was great. We appreciated the workshop style approach... demonstration and then practice. Lukasz knew our cameras (a canon and a Fuji) so could quickly give us pointers and tell us how to adjust to conditions. He also made the steps easy enough to execute on our own later. Highly recommended.

Great tour! Guide Luke was wonderful, taking time with each of us --from me the beginner! to the most experienced photographer. Provided us with excellent photo opportunities, instruction, patience, and in the end, great photo memories. Definitely recommend for those who want some special photo shots of their time in Tokyo!

I really enjoyed this. Stefane was patient and very knowledgeable and allowed us the opportunity to learn more about my camera and its capabilities as well as looking for the right shot. Highly recommended and I bought home some great shots!

Lukasz was nice, patient and careful to ensure we all got the shots we wanted. It was VERY helpful that he scoped out positions from which to photograph for us - that saved tons of time for me to find good spots. All in all, it was a very good experience.

This is the best tour to learn more about night photography. Lucas is a professional with knowledge of my camera. I had a lot of fun learning and shooting night photos. As I was the only person, I got to learn more how I can improve my photography skills. The best thing is that Lucas wants you to enjoy yourself and learn a few tricks to improve. Overall an excellent guide, very friendly and a fun tour.

We went through the Shinjuku and Shibuya areas looking for lines, colorful lights, and other interesting bits 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, suggested to bring camera with some measure to control shutter speed or the overall exposure and a tripod.

Seriously cool tour with a guy who changed the way I thought about street and might photography. Well worth the money! I would do it again!
