Start Time: Monday, December 14, 2009 at 2:30pm

Venue: Culture Club, 15, Elgin St.(lower), Soho, Central, Hong Kong

All the way from a place called “The Wirral” in the North West of England(about 10 miles north of Chester), Andrew Cattrell came to Hong Kong over 20 years ago and was immediately fascinated by the striking architecture of the city. Initially working as a computer draughtsman on projects that included the Exhibition Centre, the Hang Seng Bank and the HSBC building, he went on to study Interior Design. During this time he developed his skills in Photoshop, discovering the benefits of creating composite elevations and perspectives as well as the general power of the program. His skills eventually surpassed the needs of interior design and led to his current passion. In the bustle of city life we don’t always find the time to notice and appreciate the beautiful architecture that surrounds us.

His aim with this project is to give a fresh perspective to iconic buildings of the Hong Kong skyline and inspire us to look again.

After 4 months of planning, 6 grueling weeks of renovation, PASM Workshop finally opened its door on 24 October 2009.

In a nutshell, PASM is not just another photo studio or workshop, PASM is a unique new community where people of like minds and common interests can join together to share their passions and inspirations.  PASM is a dimensioned space containing infinite ideas.  Not only for photographers, PASM is for artists and educators from across the creative spectrum.

At PASM you’ll find a fully equipped professional studio with the latest equipment from Elinchrom, Skyport, Alien Bees, Profoto and much more.  Our 1,300 square foot studio features a 19 foot by 38 foot lane (that can be subdivided) along with 14 foot ceilings and a 450 square foot outdoor terrace (also suitable for shooting). Our Partners, Associates and Staff are ready to offer you whatever support you will need during your project.

Whatever images exist in your brain, at PASM they will become reality.

Our shooting lane can be easily converted into

(a) two 18ft. wide and 18 ft. long shooting lanes for small group or product shoots;
(b) one multi-purpose teaching area (seats 16 persons) equipped with projector and other teaching equipment and a 19ft. wide and 19ft. long shooting lane for live demonstration and practice (great for photography courses);
(c) the make-up counter linking together with the multi-purpose teaching area forms a great teaching platform for makeup / styling courses; and
(d) one large lecture room (seats up to 50 persons) equipped with projector and other teaching equipment.
