About the Workshop

Meg Hewitt has travelled to Tokyo many times to create her body of work, ‘Tokyo Is Yours’ and will introduce you to many places outside of the usual route. Over five days you will further develop your own style and learn more about Meg’s techniques whilst developing a new series of work.

“I really encourage participants to make a series of images that work together and I push people to work hard. Everyday I focus on each participant’s individual needs. I want people to go beyond just good street snaps and people in markets kind of stuff. Sure, a good photo is partly about composition, but it needs to make me want to look again, I need to question it, engage with it, it should tell me a story.”

“I ask you what you want to see in Tokyo and offer advice on how to get to the essence of it. Tokyo is large, multilayered and with the language barrier it can be hard to penetrate quickly. Given that I have been there so many times I can help you get there. On the first morning we do a group review of everybody's portfolio prior to the workshop. We do a night together where I show you some of the quirkier sides of Japanese life and introduce you to the haunts of the Japanese photographic community. I also spend time on the street alongside participants one-on-one if they have challenges they want to address. My favourite thing is witnessing how much people can grow in a week.”

March and April are one of the best times of year to visit Japan as the weather is mild, the light good and you may also have the opportunity to experience hanami – cherry blossom viewing.

The venue for the workshop will be near Asakusa and accomodation is included in the package.

The workshop price includes six nights Japanese style accommodation from March 27 to April 2 and a Wagyu or vegetarian dinner together on the first night before the workshop. During the workshop there is free wifi available, free tea and coffee and discounted beer and sake at the venue. There are eight individual Japanese style rooms with two bathrooms. The accommodation is contemporary and clean.

Cost of the workshop does not include travel or on the ground daily expenses. It is also advisable to purchase travel insurance for unexpected events

Some feedback from the 2018 Workshop

  • Had an awesome time in Tokyo and really enjoyed the workshop. Great to be pushed to do things a bit out of the comfort zone (ie approaching people directly) and take on new challenges in a new location.

  • Really got a lot of inspiration and encouragement from you, Marco and all the participants - which was very motivating. It’s great to learn from people whose work I admire, as I find this always helps me get closer to where I want to be with my work.

  • Beyond style, beyond technique, beyond craft: Meg Hewitt’s workshop – in fact, her work – is about VOICE. If you’re seeking your own visual voice, join one of her workshops…as I did!!! Japan was the perfect venue!!!
