About Photographer

Andy is an award-winning photographer who is keen on architecture and landscape photography. Getting into drone flying in 2015, he put together several aerial series, which have attracted international attention. He recently won the Second place in the 2017 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year with his new aerial series entitled "Walled City". His 360-degree photos taken by DJI drone camera have also been well-received and been shared thousands of times on Facebook. Andy is born and raised in Hong Kong. He developed a passion for photography at an early age when he started receiving his father’s old camera as hand-me-down. It was this early exposure to camera that introduced Andy to the world of photography, which he reckons, has a healing power. As a born-and-raised Hong Konger, he learned to cull inspiration from the familiar especially when coming up with shots of this over photographed city. He believes that a great photograph can speak to people’s emotions and make people stop and think. He relies on a good eye and knowledge of techniques as well as technology to create new images and build up his own style. His work has been recognized internationally with his work winning the Second place in the 2017 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year and the Gold winner in PX3 Photo Competition 2015 (architecture category) and several other awards.
