The Artists

Andrew Mok began his career as a telecom engineer and studied photography in his native Hong Kong. Andrew stays close to his passion for photography by working as a professional digital editor. Henri Cartier Bresson, Alfred Stieglitz and Diana Arbus are among his photographic inspirations.

Gina Botelho’s imagination overflows into her beautiful imagery. She takes her photographs beyond the snapshot with her unique and creative digital transformations. This not only provides self-fulfillment, but also intriguing visuals for her audience to enjoy.

James Yip’s driving force is his heartfelt love of birds, which he photographs in their natural habitat. James has the ability to transform ideas into artistic ventures.

Marek Gronowski’s focus as a professional photographer involves international hotel photo shoots for Internet marketing and the travel industry. However, his real passion starts after hours when he ventures into the darkroom of his mind.

Penny Lou is an original visionary thinker, always ready to experiment. Her fresh approach results in innovative and fascinating photography.

Ron Lee’s photography reveals his architectural mind in motion as it embraces finely balanced details, colours and elegant lines. He chooses to retain the inherent beauty of his subjects and tends to eschew digital manipulation.
