I took a 2-day photography walk with Dave in Penang, and it was a great experience. He focused on the areas that I was most interested about (composition and light), in addition to sharing with me several tips and tricks. I believe the lessons I took from this weekend with Dave will definitely make me a better photographer. It was... More

I received this experience as a wedding gift from my friends! After years of creepily commenting on Dave's instagram account and following him and his wife's blog, I finally met him at 7.15am on 12/17/16 at Campbell St Market. Dave is a non-didactic and encouraging teacher who taught me all the photography basics -- including how to finally use manual... More

I took a photo walk with Dave on 26/12/16 and had a great time. The tour started with a brief discussion of where I was at with photography, which I assume helped Dave to pitch the content over the next few hours. We covered a lot of ground - in camera composition, scene setting, use of light in different situations,... More

I have been following Dave on Instagram for a while and am absolutely fascinated by those street-life scenes that he manages to capture with that particular light and the story that he manages to convey with each image. I was so excited about coming to Georgetown for a short holiday and thought that a morning walk with Dave would be... More

A fantastic tour through the streets of George Town, all the while learning more on the skill of photography. David is passionate and knowledgeable in the art of photography, as well as the sights and smells of Penang. A wonderful tour as well as photography lesson. Very much a novice, in 3.5 hours David took me away from auto mode... More

My son and I did the Photography tour with Dave. We found him insightful, patient and passed on valuable knowledge about techniques. I learnt that techniques can make a significant difference to a photo. I would highly recommend Dave.

I've been a fan of David Hagerman's photography, esp. on food and culture. To catch him in Penang was such a great opportunity that i enrolled in his photowalk/workshop. Verdict? i've never had such a profound kind of learning in years. D. Hagerman is not just a great photographer but also a great teacher, the one that draws out the... More

My wife booked a photography tour with David as a surprise for me. I was little nervous to go shooting with someone who has had so much published and commissioned work when I just about know which way to point the camera. David was great at understanding my level of experience and tailored the walk according to what I requested... More

David is a delight to work with. He understood my ability level and designed the tour to meet it. He has a real understanding of light and knows some of the best spots for shooting. We covered a lot of ground in three hours. Since the tour, I've seen an improvement in my approach to environmental portraiture.
