  • Architectural Photography

    As an Architect, I understand the design process, the care, the detail, and the soul that are carefully placed by the creator for every house or building, indoors or outdoors.  From the first line drawn on a piece of paper to the last material built at the end of the construction.  As an Architectural Photographer, I know what to look for, it is not just a picture on paper.

  • Editorial Photography

    For featured articles in magazines, publication covers, and interviews, a good photographer complements a good writing with impactful images that engage readers.

  • Digital Image Consultancy

    I can support your Marketing team to create the required imagery to ensure stock photography for any promotional needs.  I work with your Marketing team to create original concepts for each product and/or service.

  • Printing Services

    The need to find a reliable, high-quality source for your printing needs is not easy.   I offer printings of exhibition quality as with my current clients for prestigious galleries in Shanghai.  Note: As the work is done in China, delivery time vary from few days to one month depending on quantity.


    * Acid-free papers allow your prints to last longer, preventing the ink quality to deteriorate.

  • Fine Art for Houses and Offices

    My limited edition photographs can turn your plain wall into a noticeable display of fine photography.  Most photographs come in 3 different sizes and are originally signed.  See “Art” section inside the Gallery.

  • Curator Service

    Perhaps you have a series of photos which you would like to print and display on your walls or give as gifts to friends and family.  However, you don’t know how to select and create a meaningful story from them.  I offer the service to help you select the pictures, create an ‘artistic” blend, then recommend the best combinations and arrangements so you can tell your story.
