Motherland Chronicles Postcard Sets

Motherland Chronicles Postcard Sets

Recently I designed and produced two postcard sets for the Motherland Chronicles project with my friend Tobias Kwan

It started off as promo for our trips in Japan on business meetings. But seeing the good responses we received, I thought, if people liked it this much, wouldn't it be great to offer them to everyone waiting on the Motherland Chronicles artbook? 

So we made some tweaks, selected a fresh set of images, and made a postcard set each available for purchase.

Art of Noah by Kuang Hong

Had the honor of writing the foreword to Noah Kuang Hong's new artbook that's just been published in China. 2 volumes collecting over 15 years of his digital paintings, it's really something to behold.

We've known each other well over a decade now, some of my earliest experiences in learning about art, Photoshop, and defining my own colors and aesthetics as a photographer came from working together ...

Artistic Portrait Photography - Course Information

Artistic Portrait Photography - Course Information

Hey guys, it's been a while since my last blog post. A number of you have written in to ask for more details regarding the course I am teaching at Learn Squared. With a new mentorship class coming up, I thought it would be a good time as any to give a rundown and answer some of your most frequently asked questions. Hope those who are considering signing up will find this helpful! :D

Course Scope

There are 8 lessons in this course. I will cover a wide range of topics from the basics of photography, to putting a shoot together, photoshoot day, and my retouching process when doing one of my fine art portrait photos.

I focus a lot on the fundamentals and essentials that I find important to my photography. The idea is that after this course you will have a structured way of putting a shoot together, that you can do anything you wish to and it doesn’t have to apply to fine art portraits only.

Difficulty Level

I’d say photographers of all levels can learn from this course including those who have never touched a camera. However, I think most beneficial would probably be for beginners and intermediate photographers. ...
