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. I have lived in Toronto, Quebec, Regina, Saskatoon, New York City; and now I call Vancouver home.  I do portrait, family photos, weddings, and streets. 

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 taking pictures, I am inspired to pay attention to the world around me, to acquire artistic visions to interpret what I see, and to express myself through photo sharing. I used to be a Nikon full frame shooter, Now I use Fujifilm x-series.

I graduated from Columbia University with a Doctor of Education in New York City.
