Kuala Lumpur Photowalk

Photo Walk Kuala Lumpur

One of the fun things that I did during the Covid19 pandemic was a Kuala Lumpur Photowalk, where I explored Petaling Street, the surrounding old KL areas and the River of Life.

Usually, I would carry my Nikon DSLR or FijiFilm Mirrorless camera around. Still, I explored with my Samsung Galaxy smartphone since the Covid 19 lockdowns in Kuala Lumpur or KL City.

Update: Since 2023, I have stopped conducting photowalks in KL due to my work schedule in Borneo and other parts of Southeast Asia.

The photo walk I do in KL is simple and easygoing, whereas I prefer a casual take-your-time concept. This way, I don't pressure myself.

My objective is straightforward: I try to discover my backyard and learn about smartphone photography and its capabilities.

My favourite place to do the KL photo walk is Petaling Street or the KL Chinatown area and its immediate surroundings. Below are a series of photos that are taken during my KL photowalks.

The Kuala Lumpur Photowalk is conducted by David Hogan Jr, who has been doing photo walks all over Malaysia. If you are interested in future photo walks, please let me know through my Facebook Profile.

I will also announce on my Instagram account if I am conducting any photo walks in Malaysia; therefore, you can follow me there if you are active on IG.

The first KL Photowalk will be conducted on the 2nd of January 2022 to welcome the new year and explore the older part of Kuala Lumpur.

This is also to kick-start a new interest in smartphone photography in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, as technology has improved recently.
