Street photography is about making photograph in public places.
To capture the random incidents, the candid moments, or anything that’s pleasing to the eyes and fascinating to us with an attempt to instil an emotion, convey a message, or interpret a story with what our eyes see and what our hearts visualise.
In addition, Street photography makes traveling more purposeful and significant.
It makes us see the world with a broader perspective and greater interest.
It also makes us see the familiar everyday surroundings with a fresh new eye.

Some would say it’s challenging, as it requires patience, quick and intuitive responses and the failing rate can be high.
And it’s not easy to make the composition pleasing to the eyes, and certainly not easy to incorporate the narrative component to the images in that split second.

As a matter of fact, it does require something more.
That’s what this Master Class is all about, I felt compelled to guide those who wish to acquire a deeper understanding in this area.
I’d immersed in this genre of photography for more than 14 years now, and I’d earned many honours in photo competitions in Street photography category. One of my most unforgettable moments and greatest honours was winning the First Place in National Geographic Photography Contest in 2013.
And I’m extremely glad to see many of my students participated in contests and earned awards and mentions from all over the world time and again.

In this master class I will teach you first the very foundation of photography:
Understanding the clue, or so-called the formula of what constitutes a good photograph, and how to develop our seeing eye in photography.
And we will progress to explore Street Photography in detail.
On a step-by-step basis, I’ll teach you which gears to use, how to do the camera setting correctly in different situations, how to find the right elements and integrate them in the chosen frame of the camera.

And I’ll teach you the various creative approaches to Street photography:
what’s suitable for colour photography, what’s suitable for B&W and etc.
How to deal with different weather condition, whether it’s rainy or sunny and still produce good results; whether it’s flat lighting, or lowlight.
I will guide you on how we could fully utilise each and every situation.
What you will find in the class is a complete guide of all I know about Street photography:
From the technical aspects to the artistry aspects, what kind of preparation we should make, how to deal with different circumstances, what are the common mistakes we make and how to rectify them, how to make good and artistic composition, and how to seek out the storytelling, the narrative component.

There are post-processing lessons, in both Color & B&W.
My tutorial is about simplify the complex, training in the habit of seeing & observation, with many inspiring & creative lessons and assignments for you to work on. It is designed to make learning fun and engaging.
At the end of the course, I believe you will find you have acquired a clear understanding and creative mindset, and able to produce aesthetically pleasing and good storytelling street images—more than you could ever imagine.

Photography Teacher
Adam Tan – Fine Art Photographer, Malaysian.

“The winner of one of the most prestigious photography awards from National Geographic Magazine, conferred First Place in “Places” category in its 2013 International Contest, almost the highest honour and the wildest dream came true…”

So shall this be the most direct introduction to Adam Tan.

Adam’s other honours includes: –

-Spot Light Award, Black & White Magazine, USA, 2014

-Excellence Award, Black & White Magazine, USA, (for 3 consecutive years, 2012 -2014)

Adam’s works cover a wide range of themes and categories. Besides street photography, he is equally adept in other areas. His winning entry, “The Visitor”, Black & White Magazine’s Spotlight Award, showcases his superlative skill in photographic abstract art. Perhaps to better express it, it is his ability to discern the special, the significance out of the ordinary with his unique sight and capture it through his masterful skill and narrative.

Adam establishes photography classes, workshop and sharing fellowship and leads travel trips with the single-minded devotion to teach this art to his others. He shares his philosophy openly and his techniques unreservedly. He compressed his perception and interpretation, his invention and creative skill into a series of courses to allow quick comprehension of theory and easy mastery of techniques to those who learn from him.

When asked about his love of photography, he said, “The art of photography has to be arise from the heart and touched the feeling and emotion, it arouses senses and recognises beauty. We must come to grip that we are artists, with high passion for art, a love in creating and a zeal to elevate our artistic level with inventive ideas and vivid imagination”.


Adam believes that all human has an inner drive or a secret wish to be good in any form of art. And photography is probably the closest to art for most of us to engage in this age and time. Through photography we could reclaim the artist in us.

The mission of Adam Tan Academy is to educate and influence the development of fine art photography. Adam uses photography as a form of visual art to express his aesthetic view, and a platform to reach out to anyone who shares the same love for this art form.
