We are pleased to welcome leading photographer Ali Ghorbani for a Smartphone photography workshop.

Ali’s career highlights include the Olympic Games and photographing Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities such as Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio, Mariah Carey and Akshay Kumar.

In the first session, Ali teaches participants the basic techniques of Lighting, Focus and Composition, when using a Smartphone Phone, at a seminar room in Central.
All participants then go on a walk around Central, to take photographs of their choice, be it of modern buildings, landmarks or green spaces.
Following refreshments back at the seminar room, Ali reviews the photographs and teaches the best apps for Editing and Retouching on Smartphones.  He leads a practical session, which includes advice on how to have taken the original photographs from the walk better, and hands-on training in Photograph Editing to improve the photographs subsequently.
Professional photographer Ali Ghorbani has photographed in over 30 countries. He is a leading Hong Kong wedding photographer.  Ali has also worked with some of the world’s leading brands including Porsche, Adobe, Dom Perignon, Disney and Four Seasons, as well as being one of the official photographers at the HK Rugby 7s.  In addition to being a content creator for Huawei, Ali has been giving workshops for over 6 years for clients such as Adobe, The British Consulate, LKF Group, Aberdeen Marina Club, Sun Life and others. 

In his early career, Ali was the mentee of Henry Dallal, a National Geographic photographer, as well as official photographer of Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth II and several other royal families.  He is a founding member of the HK Web3 Association and has created and sold over 25 Digital Photography Collectibles (NFTs).  His work has been featured by Samsung and displayed at shows in Hong Kong, New York and Rome.
