My passion for photography started in my early years, when I was in charge of carrying the camera bag with my father’s Canon EOS 650 on our frequent family road trips.
My father always joked that my mother would take photos of him and he always appeared hairless, because the heads were out of the frame! This was solved with the world of digital photography and no more heads out of the frame. As you browse through my work you will see that I leave arms or heads out of the photos – I do this intentionally to get magazine style photo images.
I was born in Hong Kong, but raised in Toronto, Canada. This has enabled me to get exposure into both the east and west cultures and traditions. I studied Computer Science at Ryerson University and have worked as a software developer for over 10 years since graduating.
My first camera was a manual loading film camera which had a fixed 35mm lens and only 24 shots (like a disposable camera) which I took to camp one year. None of the photos turned out as I would have liked them to.
After earning money from my part time job during University, I started my journey through cameras. My first digital camera was a Canon PowerShot S40 (an expensive, durable and heavy camera). Six cameras and 11 years later, I’m now looking for a second body, so that I can enhance the quality of my work and make sure that I catch every possible photo opportunity!
