Has anyone successfully extended their 60-day Visitors

Alright so i was wondering if anyone has successfully extended their 60-day Visitors with a reason for tourism? I’m a photographer and I am looking to stay longer so that I can document more of my travels in Taiwan. So I’m getting ready to go to Hong Kong to pick up the Visitors Visa so that this can be possible.

However I don’t see the price tag of the visitors visa worth it if I am not able to extend it past it’s standard 60 days. I’m looking to get the full 180 days extension if it is possible.

Has anyone successfully done this with a similar reason… that being not visiting relatives or going to school.

thanks for the help.
