In this weekend masterclass, Perspectives in Our Contemporary World will provide practical learning and review sessions for both emerging and practising photographer. Participants will work on crafting their personal voice and career.

Leading the class, Stefen Chow will share his extensive industry experience and practices. These will springboard to further discussion on current trends and challenges in the photography world. The masterclass is kept small to facilitate lecture-discussions, small-group conversations and peer presentations. These activities will gather participants to refresh their perspectives, and to gain new insights. Every participant will also receive a one-to-one consultation with Stefen. The consultation will address question s about the participants’ portfolio and the industry.

Between the class-lectures, there is a gap day set aside for participants to complete a day project. This is to allow participants to calibrate their perspectives and attempt new approaches, to begin a new discovery, overcome fear or creative block, embark on a new creation, and ultimately to pursue professional growth.

Limited to 12 participants.
Participants are required to present a valid ID card.


  • No prior experience or a professional career record is required. However, we expect passion and commitment over the 3 days and to complete all assignments punctually.
