Asian Tour 2011

Aug 9

In Tours at 7:31am

This past January, our good friend and great shooter, Louis Pang, invited us to come across the world to Malaysia and shed some small flash light on their country.  We had great talent, cool locations, and an incredibly enthusiastic group of shooters.


After rockin’ and rollin’ through last year, we’ve decided to make the trip again, but this time, on a much larger scale.  We’ll be spending the entire month of January 2011 teaching workshops and conducting seminars in four different Asian locales: Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.  All the info can be found by clicking here, at this wonderful site Mr. Pang and his team have put together. Super cool thing–my wife Annie will be teaching a piece of the tour as well, a beginner class, designed to get folks out of the gate with their DSLR. It’s a class designed to build skills, and confidence behind the lens. She knows digital systems backwards and forwards, and really covers all the bases for the person who is just getting used to this newly acquired digital picture machine.

The tour culminates in Kuala Lumpur, where we’ll be part of a huge event called Creative Asia.  Louis, Annie, Dane Sanders, Michael Greenberg, Manny Librodo, and I will be putting on a multi-day photo conference with a ton of cool events planned.. workshops, open discussions, shootouts, etc.


Social media maniacs, never fear, we’ll be blogging, tweeting, and status updating the whole time, along with the occasional smoke signal.


Check out the official Facebook and Twitter feeds for the tour, to keep up to date on all we’re planning.

Hi Joe
Met someone who went to your last Malaysia workshop and came back full of ideas.

Just one point; Malaysia is indeed funky, but it is not an island….

Sounds like good fun. We raised our kids for 6 years in Jakarta, infact they graduated high school there. That whole area is an amazing place to shoot, I go back there at least once a year for photos.

Você é ótimo. Visitar seu blog sempre me inspira (e me alucina). Eu amaria ser seu assistente; mas moro no Brasil… :-(

Sucesso, e muitos, muitos cliques fantásticos.

I’ll be keeping an eye out for the smoke signals.

Surprised not to see Manila on the list, considering the size and depth of the photo industry in the Philippines. It’ll be easy enough for motivated Filipinos to get to Sing or HK, of course, just surprised.

Would love to get my wife into Annie’s beginner class. Unfortunately, Asia is out of our travel budget. Maybe she could teach a couple of them state side?

I am joining the Australia requests, and if you come to Sydney, you definitely have to come to Melbourne too! :)

Would love to see you in the land down under Joe! I think my boyfriend would probably jump out of his skin if he found out you were coming here! I hear the Gold Coast is a great place to stop by… :)

Hey Joe, I may have missed the train with you seeing this older comment on your blog but after reading all the “please come to Australia” comments had to add my vote as well… I don’t mind what part of OZ you touch down in – I’ll get there.

Tripp says:

OK so I signed up for one of the one day workshops in Jakarta, paid my money, and now the and sites are broken and have been for a couple of days. Is this a scam or is this for real? (just kidding) Seriously, why are they not coming up now?

Joe McNally says:

on September 13, 2010 at 6:02 am

It’s for real, we are going to Jakarta, might be a server glitch which I’m sure is temporary. They’ve been known to happen, here and there…..Joe
