Every Spring in Japan, one of the most beautiful flowers in the world begins to bloom – the Cherry Blossom, or sakura as it is known in Japanese. The season brings with it not only the stunning sight of the blossoming trees, but also an incredible cultural experience. If you enjoy taking photos, it is the perfect place and time to get outside with your camera.
This year, you have the opportunity to do just that with photographer Les Taylor with his 2016 Cherry Blossom Workshop. Join Les as he travels to some of the prettiest locations in Tokyo, and learn how to take top-notch photos of the cherry blossoms for yourself! The workshop will take you to a variety of iconic cherry blossom spots in the city, as well as lesser known areas with equally breathtaking views. All along the way, you’ll learn how to capture the beauty before your eyes in your own photos. If you love photography and love cherry blossom season as much as Les, this is the workshop for you!
