When I was a kid, I enjoyed taking family pictures with my dad's Canon AE-1 and Konica Autoreflex TC. I bought my first camera, Canon EOS 33, after college. However, I did not become serious about photography until after my first trip to the Yellowstone National Park in 2003.

Form, shape, and contrast are the main themes in my photographic work. Like rhythms in music, they can be constructed, deconstructed, and reconstructed in infinite ways. It is this infinite possibility that attracts me the most when making photographs.

Music has been my passion since my childhood; nature and landscape always fascinate me; playing sports helps me relax and stay focused; and logical and analytical thinking is something I can’t live without. They all contribute to or inspire my work in some way. Yet none of them alone would make the creation of my work possible. I create images to learn about myself as well as learn about the world. Sometimes I try to reflect a sense of emotional detachment; other times, I just make it fun or simply beautiful.

Artistic expression and technical excellence are equally important to me. Not only do I like to explore different type of photography, I also like to try new techniques or technologies. That’s how I keep my mind fresh and creative.

In 2015, my friend Max Chen and I founded a commercial photography and video production studio with a focus on interior and architectural photography, VR technology, and documentary.
