some comments from our trip in December 2019

Jiangnan Photography Workshop 11-15 December 2019

As a follower of the Fujifilm ClubX Group on Facebook I have been very impressed by the pictures posted by William Chua Photography, and so jumped on the chance to sign up for his Jiangnan (China) Photography Workshop that was held on 11-15 December, 2019.  Being an amateur photographer I felt that I needed new inspiration, professional coaching and a change from the usual scenery (I live in Perth, Western Australia) in order to take myself to the next level, skills-wise.  I’m really pleased to say that the workshop ticked all boxes: William and his co-instructor Albert Lim are both great photographers and excellent teachers.  William has a wonderful eye for detail and exploits light to make the mundane extraordinarily beautiful.  As a “local”, Albert was able to provide us with background on the sites we visited, making the workshop more complete and enjoyable.  The shooting locations themselves were very well chosen and allowed everyone to take the quintessential photographs of the Chinese countryside that one sees on National Geographic and other travelogues.  Both William and Albert are very familiar with the locations and they were able to advise us on the best angles, perspectives and lighting for our shots.

The workshop itself was well planned and organised: we were met by William and Albert at Hangzhou airport; the hotels were very clean and comfortable, and the meals (all breakfasts, lunches and dinners are included in the package) were wholesome and excellent. We travelled on a spacious and clean Toyota bus that was  driven by a competent and safe driver.

A huge selling point of the workshop was the ability to borrow and try out photographic equipment from Fujifilm Singapore.  I had been intrigued by the capabilities of Fujifilm’s GFX medium-format camera system and William was kind enough to arrange the loan of a GFX 50S camera and two lenses (the Fujifilm GF 110 mm f2.0 and the GF 45 mm f2.8) for the duration of the workshop.  The GFX 50S turned out to be the best camera I’ve used and both the GF 110 mm and 45 mm lenses were exceptional as well.  Needless to say I’m sold on the GFX system and quickly purchased three GF lenses on my return to Perth (the GF 23 mm f4.0, GF 45 mm f2.8 and GF 110 mm f2.0).  The camera itself will have to wait, as I’m still undecided on whether to go for the GFX 50S, 50R or the superlative GFX 100.

Thank you once again William and Albert – it was indeed a humbling but very educational experience to have had the opportunity to shoot under your tutelage.  All in all it was money well spent: I’d be happy to go on other of your workshops in the future, and will also be happy to recommend these to my friends without reservation.

Best regards David Kuek

My Husband stumbled upon this photography trip led by William Chua and his friend Albert Lim.

I followed my husband as a non photographer companion. Yet I was so grateful to Fujifilm for lending me a lightweight camera Fujifilm XT-30. I enjoyed the experience with the many tips given by both.

The places we were led to were all incredibly picturesque and most suitable for photography. Both photographers were so willing to impart their skills.

The trip was very well planned and executed. As they were both foodies, they took us to good places for meals and that in itself is a wonderful experience.

this trip is highly recommended for both the photographers and companions.

thank you guys..

Kathleen and Colin
