Walk Hong Kong runs photography workshops / courses, by Jackie Peers a Hong Kong based photographer with 15 years experience, which are proving very successful amongest local Hong Kong residents and visitors to Hong Kong. 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 to 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.
Photography locations be it a tour / photography workshop or photography course
Tap Mun Chau, one of the remoter corners of Hong Kong. This setting of this photography workshop includes both natural landscapes and old indigenous villages of Hong Kong. We explore the Tin Hau temple, walk around the rugged coastline, check out the balance rocks, walk through the fishermens village, and compare the hats of the Hakka (land folk) and the Tanka (sea folk).

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.

Other Assignments 2010
I have become involved in a voluntary basis with Orangutan Aid, and I do there website for them. Recently I went to southern Borneo to gather more images for the site.
Orangutan Aid is dedicated to the memories of Gistock, Marundau, Regina and the many thousands of other orangutans who have lost their lives due to manʼs inhumanity and greed. Orangutan Aid has been set up in Hong Kong to help in the struggle to try to save the orangutan from extinction in the wild, and to raise awareness of the dangers facing them.
