Vancouver Portrait Photographer | 溫哥華人像寫真攝影:漢服冬雪

To accomplish things, sometimes we really need some luck at the right time and place.  This Hanfu photoshoot is due to such a coincidence.


Since it was during the Christmas holidays and the weather was awful and snowy, a suitable shooting day was hard to come by.  On the one hand, it needs a day without snow and rain, and it must be before the snow melts. Furthermore, it must be a day that is convenient for all participants involving the photography session.  Thinking about it seems like a mission impossible.  However, we were blessed and happened to meet all the conditions on that only day. Surprisingly the weather was sunny, and we could feel the kiss of sunshine. Thankfully, all of our ideas could be fulfilled. Thank you!


In addition to being able to withstand the cold when shooting in snow, there are more realistic challenges in actual execution.  This time, we encountered the biggest snowfall in Vancouver in the past 70 or 80 years. Walking will be difficult due to the deep snow covering, and it is even more challenging for models with long skirts.  It will also cause the dilemma of missing half of the legs and feet in the shooting picture because the bottom part of the body is stuck in the snow.  The shooting process was also sluggish due to the impact of frozen fingers, and the brain function and reaction were reduced. It is so hard to concentrate and think much while shooting. Ha.  These are some behind-the-scenes secrets and challenges of shooting snow scenes.


Originally, the model wanted to try to shoot in a park. Due to the difficulty of walking and the fact that there are tall buildings behind and the high contrast created by sunlight, we gave up the original plan and resolutely chose the location nearby.  On the one hand, it conforms to the original quiet blue tone setting, and all the details of the shape and clothing can be more completely preserved under the shadows; it allows the model to interpret the vicissitudes and desolation of the winter snow perfectly.  I also tried to enter the community on the side and chose to use rocks and trees as the background to give full play to the wild atmosphere of the natural green.


Later, on the way to our commute, we accidentally found this perfect spot next to the road. A place where small red fruits are on the trees, adding a neat red colour touch to the white. And matching red brick on the side to give more visual and story elements in the camera frame. Everything seemed to be a little surprise presented in front of our eyes;  A perfect shooting condition and environment.  Immediately, I pull over my car next to the road and get myself ready to shoot for my hard-working model.


This is our very first collaboration, and it was a rare snow scene opportunity. It makes our first experience to be a difficult snow scene HanFu photoshoot.  I’m distraught that the model will be frozen in a daze!  Especially compared to me who is wearing a big coat. I couldn’t stand the cold wind while my model tried so hard to perform in such light clothes. I honestly feel thankful for my model who accomplished the difficult task of producing these breathtaking photographs. 


The outcome we received was way beyond expectations!  Thanks to model Catherine for her full assistance and interpretation. For best quality results, she hardly sleeps the night before for preparation. Sincerely feel thankful for everything went extremely well during the photography session so all the plans can be fulfilled. Especially we bump into that perfect shooting spot, it really made our day! 

成品出乎預期的好!感謝模特Catherine 全力協助與演繹,為了最好的成品,幾乎沒睡在努力的她。感謝天公作美,讓一切計畫能實現,更錦上添花讓我們有幸拍的預期之外上上作的機會。

Vancouver Portrait Photographer | 溫哥華寫真 – 思念你是甚麼顏色

Hey, do you know that you are the one I am await for?


Smile because I have you in my heart.


Haruki Murakami’s book is one of the few books that will make me feel very calm. Love his delicate and simple wording narrative. Feel so close to his character’s state of mind as my breathing; that kind of fit and nature.


Joy, because looking at the same book as you, savouring the things you once thought.


Afternoon, leisurely.
Chew a book and let the mind fly.


Charming eyes, like the stars in the night.
Watching secretly so you don’t notice.

SilkRoad Super Model Academy – Doreen Wang


She is my good friend, a talented, knowledgeable and confident girl.


This is our bold attempt and innovation. The styling is something that she has never touched before. We simply only use one backdrop paper, plus lights and colour gels trying to bring out the different looks of Doreen Wang.


A girl from China, revealing the temperament of the Western supermodel. Her poses and movements are precisely and vivid in front of the camera.

這位來自中國的女孩,透著西方超模的氣質。 她的姿勢和動作在鏡頭前準確、生動且內斂。

Special thanks to our talented makeup artist Summer. Without her, there would be no such vivid works this time. thank you so much!!
