Creative Asia, Coming in July….

May 22

In Seminars & Workshops at 8:59pm

My bud and fellow shooter Louis Pang continues the adventure by launching another version of Creative Asia, which in a very short time has become an absolute go to event  for photographers, art directors, and visual communicators from all over the Far East. Louis has not only positioned himself as one of the world’s leading wedding shooters, he’s also determined to influence an entire generation of shooters via his teaching and energy. Hence, Creative Asia. Below is a bit of a mission statement, if you will.

Wonderful goals, and lofty language. But then Louis throws everybody a curve and invites a coupla dudes from the States. This guy from Atlanta who only uses one light, and a bona fide looney tune from NY who totes around bags of speed lights. How we gonna fit in?

Really honored to be teaching with Zack, who is a supremely talented shooter out of the South, and a guy who has already has earned his stripes as a shooter through the school of hard knocks and ups and downs. And, unstintingly, in the grand and honorable tradition of this pass it on business of photography, he takes his accumulated experience and uses it to teach wonderfully and well.

July 16-20, in Hong Kong, there will be a gathering of photographers and educators from all over, converging to talk and teach photography. Here’s a link for details. Lots of wonderful days, and late night BS sessions. Many beers will be consumed. And it takes place in one of the most amazing cities on the planet. More tk….

That would be the dream seminar, are you guys touring the US?

Wow – what an epic outing that would be.

I sold my soul twice to get to all the Aussie gigs – any chance I could swap with Drew for the duration? He’ll get to stay in a house with plenty of kangaroos & koalas to be found out the front, plus there’s plenty of beer in the fridge.

Thanks (not entirely joking),

I would love it if you and Zack could do this workshop in the next GPP in Dubai – it’s a long way off but I’m just wishing.

Great stuff! Any chance the Zack and Joe show will go on the road? Or at least be available for download? Please consider it.

“Creative Asia” and you guys skip right over South Korea… what a bummer. I thought I might actually have a chance to see one of your workshops.

Really love the tour picture. Zack with one light and Joe amidst all those strobes on c-stands with that big smile of his.

I just read your starting chapters of “sketching light”. This seminar is definitely not going help your reputation of “using many lights” (re: your comment on page x)

.. wish you’d hold the same seminar in Europe though!

Wow another overseas tour! Is there any chance you’ll ever do one in Tokyo?

Bummer your not swinging by Beijing, I’d love to see your gig.

Please either take this on the road Flashbus style or do a DVD.

Great news Joe! I just signed up and am looking forward to experiencing your insights, tips and wit in person. As good a photographer as you are, from what I’ve seen of your videos and books you’re an even better teacher. Should be fun.

Any chance it will be filmed and on DVD for all the less deep pocketed that can’t follow you in Asia??

Looking at the site’s information I noticed the prices for Joe and Zack’s one day sessions were not listed. As I would be flying in from Japan and have a bit of a budget, I was wondering how much these would be. I think the Hong Kong session would be best for me. Thanks!!

This should be an epic battle. Kind of like Mothra vs. Godzilla

WOW! worth every penny but sadly i can only afford watching your DVDs at home. Treasure your DVD like a gold. The DVD travel from Amazon USA to Sydney AUS before reaching East Malaysia because they cant send directly here. How i wish i can be there in July. Cheers! Lights Lights Lights
