Educated as an advertising creative from school in Canada, Wailly Lai started his career path from the IT account executive - the business side of the trade. He has been moving toward creative side through the Dot-com bubble era, learned first generation web graphic design creative through both professional and job-on-hand training, then later on interactive multimedia (merging them with frontend web and UI design), as well as print media design.
While all this time photography has always been part of his life since the analogue imaging days. The skill is a great asset to compliment on all his design work in much later days to come across the board, whether it is for web design, for interactive media, and for print design. He got his first taste of digital imaging layout skills via Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator for his graduate school project. Again, there’s no turning back.
Currently based in Hong Kong, Wailly is into commercial photography work - consumer products, gift and premium, fashion garments/accessories and food photography. He is expanding his portfolio into fashion, portrait and event photography. He likes to assist and involve projects with other photographers, whether it be in the shoot or post production/retouching work.
Whether it be people or objects, flowers or pets, etc., they all give their unique representation in this dimension we called reality. It's up to our skill and passion to bring them into another dimension. Every one of us sees them differently.
Currently I have been focusing a lot on portrait photography, as well as bridal, wedding and pre-wedding. Nowadays, I do shoot mostly on commission, but I may do free shoot too if you have some interesting ideas/themes (i.e., for fashion school student project, etc.)
