Up and coming photo trips for 2016

2016 looks like its going to be a busy time with regards to photography, and to start it off I am going to one of my most favorite places in the world “Japan”.

We leave KL on the 26th December and fly to Tokyo, we have two nights in Tokyo then we are renting a car for four days and our first stop will be Nagano where we will go and shoot the “Snow Monkeys” at Jigokudani Monkey Park.  Day for we are driving to Mount Fuji and plan to stay there for one night at the same hotel we stayed in in march 2013. In 2013 we went for “Cherry Blossom” this year we are going for snow. After Mount Fuji we will drive back to Tokyo and take in the New Year there before flying back to KL on the 2nd January.

After our return to KL I will be traveling to Jakarta for a 3 day Photoshop workshop with a friend of mine who hopefully will be able to help me with my Photoshop skills. I also plan to stay over for a few extra days to play some golf with a good buddy of mine who lives in Jakarta.
