And it is my pleasure that I am one of the Hong Kong Photographer who has been invited by Nikon Asia to share a personal photo that captures one of my special milestones. #NIKKORmilestone

I was born to a family of photographers. My Dad has been a professional photographer based in Hong Kong for over 30 years. I guess he was a big influence on me because about eight years ago, I left my job as a multimedia designer and started taking up photography full-time. At the time I was using my first Nikon, the D200.
For me, being a photographer was just a job, but that changed four years ago when I decided to recruit my own crew to start doing photography and videography for weddings and events. I realized how much I enjoyed being able to express my creative ideas and creating touching memories through images and videos. In the past year, I’ve even received three international awards.
This picture is the first and only selfie I have ever taken. It was taken in Taiwan, where I was doing my first ever wedding photoshoot. It was also my first time ever climbing a hill to watch the sunrise.
I was so excited when the sun began to emerge, and it wasn’t just because it was beautiful to see. It was because I was following in my father’s footsteps, and furthermore I was finally moving out of Hong Kong to do international jobs, and felt like I was finally making my mark in the world.
I wish to help people capture moments like these.
Who knows, maybe I’ll take more selfies in other parts of the world!
