Photography tours Hong Kong photography courses and tours are offered by Jackie Peers, a Hong Kong based photographer with 15 years experience, she runs Walk Hong Kong's photography workshops which are proving very successful. One of Jackie's passions is the abandoned villages of Hong Kong - the photos below are samples from her recent exhibition here in Hong Kong. She lives in Sai Kung Country Park and has an intimate knowledge of its most picturesque, remote and photogenic corners. Another of Jackie's favourite locations for her photography tours is the vibrant backstreets of Kowloon. If you're looking for a photography course, photography workshop or just a some quality time with your camera, then Jackie can accommodate your needs. These outings can also be booked as private photography tours.
One of the best ways to improve your photography is too take photos
Jackie caters to all levels of expertise. Some people may have just made a new purchase and are keen to put it to use. Others may have owned a good-quality camera for some time without ever fully utilising its features. Still others may be expert photographers requiring no technical guidance at all, but just seeking wonderful locations very few visit.
Whatever your background as a photographer is, you can take advantage of Jackie’s local knowledge and 15 years as a professional photographer and join her on a day out in Hong Kong. After assessing your level of expertise with the camera, she’ll set you some tasks to do. Jackie’s enthusiasm for photography and a setting that includes both natural landscapes, old indigenous villages of Hong Kong or the backstreet markets of Kowloon, guarantee a great photographic day.

Kowloon Markets Our photographic tour takes you through the back streets of Kowloon and into the daily lives of local residents. We thread through colourful streets and come across some of Hong Kong’s most lively markets and well-known landmarks, where you will feel first-hand the energy and soul of everyday Kowloon. As we photograph, you will be immersed in the living culture of the Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok districts - two of the most densely populated spots on earth, and where much of daily life is lived at street level. This is a great location for street imagery.
