Biography

A typical Asian dude/engineer who calls both Taipei, Taiwan and Toronto, Canada home. Been in the Bay Area, CA for the past good 13 years.

Always have enjoyed the outdoors and appreciated the nature. Back in Oct, 2007, finally took the leap to get into more serious photography. DSLR definitely has accelerated my learning and it has been an addiction since then.

I also got into the Large Format view camera back in 2009 after I met my buddy Kiet. I acquired a Wisner 4x5 view camera back in 2009 along with a couple of legendary lenses. Those lenses are 1/10th of what they cost 20 years ago. I felt the need to go through the pain and process of what fine art photographers went through to fully appreciate photography. It's been freakin fun to shoot that thing for sure, learnt a s***load about the fundamentals of view cameras and photography in general.

Please feel free to critique my photos, rip me apart with your comments!
