3 and 5-day Street Photo Tours and Workshops in Hong Kong with a professional photographer.
Join me and explore one of the most exiting cities in the world with your camera


Hong Kong is alive and kicking, awesome for street photography. Lots of things to see, lots of things to explore, a picture around every corner…
Hong Kong is a mix of cultures, the new and the old, you will find traditional Chinese temples and modern skyscrapers. Think about exploring a vibrant city with its streets and photogenic highlights with a photographer who will show you the way…

“You can leave Hong Kong, but it will never leave you.” - Nury Vittachi

Our 3 or 5-day Hong Kong photography workshops are mostly about street photography. We’ll teach you about composition, light, camera settings and… the moment!
But there’s more! Besides walking and exploring the streets of different areas in Hong Kong Island and Kowloon we will show you the best spots, the city’s highlights.

And… did I mention the gorgeous Hong Kong Chicken Curry? The best, I would say…


“Learn how to photograph the moment while exploring the streets of Hong Kong. Not only will you learn how to shoot on the streets with more confidence, you will also learn how to choose your best work and post-process your images to create beautiful photographs with impact, photographs that tell a story”




Besides Street Photography we'll also focus on portraits, architecture, sceneries and details. We will be exploring local markets, Chinese temples, urban landscapes, an abandoned fishing village and lots more...

Locations and Hong Kong highlights will be build in such as Central, Victoria Peak, Kwun Tong, Mong Kok, Wan Chai and Quarry Bay, Soho, Tsim Sha Tsui, Victoria Harbour and more. Transport will be by MTR (subway), ferry, bus and taxi. 

The Hong Kong Street Photography Workshops include critique sessions, a night shoot, a personal assigment and post-production sessions, so please bring your laptop (or tablet)
For analog shooters there are possibilities in Hong Kong to process your films within 24 hours with options to put your images onto cd-rom.

The Hong Kong Street Photography Tour/Workshops are…
for all levels from the beginner, to the serious amateur, professional photographers and enthusiasts who want to make better pictures in the streets private or in small groups (2-6 persons for the best approach, guidance and teaching)

  Eric d Vries, that’s me… professional photographer, instructor… I have held a camera in my hands for as long I can remember. I have worked as a professional photographer for 25 years after starting as an assistant-photographer during a 2-year study at FotoVakSchool in The Netherlands. I have photographed for a long list of corporations and product manufacturers while working in a photo studio but also did press photography for a couple of newspapers and magazines back in the 90s. For the past seven years I have been instructing photo tours and workshops in Cambodia for my own business Photo Cambodia and also for a number of exclusive travel companies.

My mission is to show you the best spots and locations during your photo tour and workshop, by sharing my experience and my knowledge of photography to help you understand your equipment and achieve your goals, and to take you on incredible photo tours and workshops that will inspire you for the rest of your life.

Home base in Cambodia for more than 10 years (after visiting the beautiful country for the first time in April 2000) I live with my wife and three kids in Siem Reap, close the temples of Angkor…

When walking the Hong Kong streets I use these cameras at the moment:
Fuji X-Pro1, Fuji X100T and Leica m2 rangefinder

The latest Hong Kong Workshops reviews

I did a Hong Kong Photo tour with Eric de Vries in October 2016. I know Eric from a prior photo tour in Cambodia so I knew this one would be just perfect. And it was. We explored the city and saw places hardly any tourist sees. Some really well hidden gems like an abandoned fisherman´ village or hardly known rooftops, but then also the classic places. Eric teaches street photography, working on your composition and, if needed, Lightroom. But certainly, the target is to get the picture perfect in the camera. I am sure you will enjoy a tour with Eric because it will improve your (street) photography, because then also you will get to know Hong Kong in a unique way. I highly recommend the tour - a true five out of five stars experience! Jörn S / Berlin, Germany

Hong Kong Photo Workshop
Just finished a 5 day Photo Workshop with Eric in Hong Kong. It was excellent. Eric was great with the photography instruction and knows Hong Kong well. We went to all his locations and went to more than a few that I wanted to explore. This was my second time using Eric's services. Took his Angkor and Countryside workshops years ago. Eric is great with a camera whether digital or film and knows the angles, light and what is possible and what is not with a camera. You will learn a lot from him. Thanks! Jesse B / Chicago.il

The highlight of our first Asia trip.
My husband and I booked Eric for a 3-day photography course in Hong Kong during our long and planned stopover before heading for Vietnam. He picked us up at our hotel for a street photography morning in Kowloon. Although we're average shooters Eric showed us how to get the 'decisive moment'. We never did anything like street photography so it was a blast!
He is very patient and knows the city well showing lots of city's highlights, the busy markets, a boat trip, the subway, the buildings. We improved our photography skills a lot. Thanks, Eric, you're the best! Marie C / Denver.co
