Original Kampung in Jakarta Morning Photo-Walk

You may be forgiven for having never wandered off the main roads in Jakarta, but if you haven’t taken the time (with your camera) to meander through one of the kampungs that are situated right in the heart of Jakarta, then you really are missing out on a unique Indonesian cultural phenomenon that is also an amazing and pleasant photo-opportunity. Check out our gallery below.

During the morning photo-walk you will be led through the labyrinth of a kampung and will have many opportunities to capture “slice-of-life” scenes of everyday life going on. We will meet friendly locals and will witness scenes of old Jakarta juxtaposed with the new.

We visit a market and there will be plenty of challenges with difficult lighting situations, but Melbourne will be giving advice to everyone in the small group. Tips and tricks drawn from his 35+ years of shooting nearly anything you can think of in almost any lighting condition you can imagine.

During the morning walk, you will capture many wonderful images of life in a real kampong. An absolutely unique experience.


Targeted at those who have attended Melbourne’s Part 1 and Part 2 photography courses, this extension to those courses will give you actual “hands-on” experience in real life situations and will make you grow your camera skills. If you are a little “rusty” with your camera familiarity, Melbourne will be there to make suggestions and answer your questions.

Cost for this photo tour and workshop is IDR 1,250,000 payable in advance. The cost does not include the cost of lunch.

This truly is a Jakarta highlight and even if you have visited Jakarta’s Chinatown before, Melbourne’s advice and coaching is going to make the return a valuable visual experience.

This tour fills up quickly so please register as soon as possible.


We can also arrange to conduct this tour during weekdays if we can get a group of 6 minimum, 8 maximum.
