Photocrafters believe that our beloved city of Hong Kong is one of the best sources of inspirations. Students get taken out of the studio to explore people, places, and the culture through the lens. Collaborating with local organisations, including YMCA and Swire Organisation for Youth Art, Photocrafters also organize photography workshops and outdoor trips for kids and teens. They hold exhibitions and community discussion sessions as well.
