About - Alan Lai Photo Art

Hello, thanks for visiting my photo site. I was born and raised in Hong Kong, but most of my life I have lived in Canada. Either because of study or work, I have lived in Toronto, Quebec, Regina, Saskatoon, New York City; and now I call Vancouver home.  I do portrait, family photos, weddings, and event. My first camera actually belonged to my father, it was a Rolleiflex film SLR.  

Photography to me is an educator who inspires imagination, provokes justice, and it invites us to fall in love with the world. It is a spiritual practice, an interpretative art, or some call it hermeneutics; it has no fixed boundaries.  It is about ways of seeing the world. 

Through this medium, I am inspired to pay attention to the world around me, acquire artistic visions to interpret what I am seeing, and to express myself through photo sharing. I used to be a Nikon full frame shooter, Now I use Fujifilm x-series. I am a graduate from Columbia University in New York City.
