I love telling stories, and how else best to tell your story than complimenting it with photos and visuals?
Life for the past ten years have been very interesting and eye opening for me. I started my photography company when I was 17, mostly photographing weddings and events. Soon, I was fortunate to have door after door open for me. I began photographing performances and concerts, starting off with none other than Eason Chan’s concert at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto in 2008. Eason is one of the top singers from my hometown of Hong Kong, praised by Time Magazine as the front runner in the next generation of Cantopop. Soon after, I had the opportunity to work with many top recording artists from Asia as they bring their world tour to Toronto and across Canada.
Then came another opportunity, this time a very unique category of photography... humanitarian projects. I started working with Orbis International, a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing avoidable blindness in developing countries. My first international project was to Nairobi, Kenya, where I documented the Orbis team and their work to help those in developing countries, onboard the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital, the only airborne hospital in the world.
Nowadays, alongside weddings, events, performances and humanitarian projects, I work with a variety of clients on food and commercial photography. Photography has taken me to many parts of the world, including Asia, Africa, Australia, the Middle East, Europe and across North America and the Caribbean. Some of my all time favourite photos are not from paid assignments, but from my travels, when I explore side alleyways, deserts, history, architecture and local life. "
