Time: 7PM to 9PM
Venue: Dubai Knowledge Village Conference Hall No. 1

Check out the reviews on my last talk in Kuala Lumpur below.
Absolutely entertaining yet informative talk! The talk absolutely opened up my mind, as well as expectation on astrophotography. The charm and humor of the speaker made the session informal, yet lively. Last but not least, the experience of the speaker was where it shines. The fantastic photos and videos that were shared on the session were mind blowing. All in all, the session was amazing! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! – Derrick
We were so glad we braved the traffic jam and made it to your talk. We were very enthused by your passionate drive for astrophotography and were constantly amazed by the beautiful pictures and timelapses you shared. Your sense of humour also made the talk very entertaining. Best of all, Max, our 6.5 year old and the youngest in the room came home with a true fascination for nebulae and other celestial treasures. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and please let us buy you dinner the next time you are in Kuala Lumpur. – Sim, See Ming and Max
It is an honor to attend to your talk. Little I know about astrophotography and much more to learn about. It is always my childhood interest on astronomy, planets and galaxy. But there is only a handful of information available locally. Lucky to know there is someone near to share some knowledge. I like the timelapse and the high quality photo displayed. The talk is very interesting, and informative. Nothing from the talk that would bored me. I hope to capture milkyway oneday. – Johnson Lai
The talk is really awesome, laugh all the way till the end. Glad that I participate it. – CH
The talk was great and awesome. The presentation is interesting. Really enjoy it. Hopefully next round can make the talk session longer. – Jayson Liew
It was inspiring, and the sharing of your experience helped bring to perspective the amount of hard work, dedication and difficulty one must be willing to go through in order to succeed. In the end, it was about creating art. – Marvin Michael Kho
The Seminar Introduction to Astrophotography conducted by Justin Ng held at the Lotus 2 hall Swiss Garden Hotel and Residences was indeed a work of dedication and passion. The event was attended by a whole range of Photographers from Professionals to Amateurs and Hobbyists alike, but the environment set by the Speaker (JN) through his witty and whimsical presentation was like a gathering of friends brought about by the common interest – Astrophotography. The Speaker was very humble on presenting his journey on his Professional career as a Photographer and how his passion has led him to improve continuously. The best means of mastering your craft would be through constant practice and countless trials and errors, as did Justin mention on his Seminar. After the whole Seminar was over, I can only say that Justin’s journey, from developing his craft through his international recognitions, is truly inspiring and a dream come true for others. Definitely a person to emulate and look up to, a Professional whose career is already up in the stars but the feet still on the ground. Thanks for inspiring us and sharing us your experiences! I think you can get a bigger venue, you have underestimated your followers – Dennis Gamma
Fantastic talk , truly open my eyes to a new area of photography and still feeling amazed with the sharing from Justin and so grateful for his generosity to share his expert in depth details of his astrophotography journey with us. We need more photographer like him in this industry , definitely ! He is also great speaker that always brought laughter to the audience that makes the talk with friendly and fun atmosphere. Only comment is we need more chairs next time ! Hope he comes again to kl for another talk session. Great job – Vincent Lee
I am very thankful to Justin for his Astrophotography talk. His way of explaining space science concept for photography was done lightheartedly in a manner which was easy to be grasped. He was informative yet amusing at the same time, and the crowd certainly loved that. Most importantly, Justin instilled a sense of motivation in all of us that astrophotography is possible regardless where we are located, even if we are in heavily light polluted cities. Through Justin’s experience, it was an eye opener on what are the directions we can take in the future to develop our skills better. Looking forward to see him in KL again, Thank you Justin! – Nirmell @ Nirphotography
My hat’s off to Justin, for him to have achieve such level of competencies and expertise in such a short span of 2 years. It’s such dedication which reignites my passion for photography. The tiny bits of gems that Justin shared are obviously not to be found anywhere except thru his hardship endured experience. – Chew Seng Cheong
An interesting eye opener session particularly on milky way, timelapse and star trail shots…. and the deep space pictures are simply amazing. I now know that it is possible to take milky way shots in town! – Aidil
