We Are One Café Workshop & Seminar Series: Photography Workshop @ おでかけ日和(Odekakebiwari)

-- Sandra

The photography industry has recently undergone a dramatic change. Technology has made photo taking easier and cheaper than ever. Interest in this field has risen over the years.

To foster ideas and to connect photographers together, We Are One International held a photography workshop at Cafe Odekakebiwari. Presenters Tamago Gogogo and We Are One photographer Lin shared their philosophy and the secrets to take good photos.

In a cozy and artistic corner of Café Odekakebiwari, guests swapped business cards, thoughts, and photo albums for others to look at. We Are One organizers also threw a surprise birthday party for Lin!

We were glad to see guests came with their photos to share with others. From their photos we saw the way they see the world. We Are One is learning from each event and experience aiming to bring more enjoyable and meaningful events to our members! Thank you everyone who attended and we hope to see you again soon!

Café Tour – Photography workshop (Nov 21st/2010)

With the tremendous advancement in digital imaging technology in the last few years, taking good pictures never seemed easier! However, taking great photos has a lot more to do with the thoughts and skills of the person taking the photos than the camera itself.  During this workshop, two guest speakers will give presentations on the art of photography. If you’re looking for inspirations and fellow photographers to network with, don’t miss this chance!

Tamago arrived in Japan in 2007. After coming to Japan, he was amused by the design and photography industry of Japan and hence he has since indulge himself in the world of design and photography. His artist name or nick name “TamagoG” came about because he wants to work on design and photography for life starting from an “egg”.

End of 2009, before graduating from a Japanese school, he opened a gallery with the name “TamagoG”.

Tamago Gogogo

2007年末、来日しました。日本に来てから、日本のデザインと写真の凄さにショックされて、すぐデザインと写真の世界にはまり込んでしまいました。さら に、一生のデザインと写真の卵としてやっていきたいから、『TamagoG』という芸術名且つニックネームを付けたわけです。一年の後、台湾の同好友達と 一緒に『LDope』というデザインスタジオを立ち上げて、活躍してきました。2009年末、日本語学校卒業する直前に『tamagog』と始めのギャラ リーを開きました。今は京都造形芸術大学の大学院でデザインと写真のことについて研究しながら、『LDope』を運営しています。
