Andy Yeung is an award-winning photographer specializing in architecture and landscape photography. As a born-and-raised Hong Konger, he learned to cull inspiration from the familiar especially when it comes to coming up with shots of this over-photographed city. He relies on a good eye and knowledge of techniques to capture magical moments of Hong Kong and transform what he has seen into something that mirrors how he feels.
Andy developed a passion for photography at an early age when he received his father’s old camera as a hand-me-down. It was this early exposure to a camera that introduced Andy to the world of photography, which he reckons, has healing power.
Compact City (Quarry Bay, Hong Kong)
Yeung believes that a great photograph can speak to people’s emotions and make people pause and think. His goal is to capture the unique visual and structural characteristics of Hong Kong from the perspective of a local photographer.
Getting into drone flying in 2015, he has put together several aerial series, which attracted international attention. His recent drone photos have gone viral and been shared thousands of times on social media.
Andy’s cityscape portfolio has been published in a range of publications including National Geographic, BBC, the guardian, lonely planet, CNN and many other respected titles.
Andy has accumulated several international awards over the years including the 2nd place in the 2017 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year, 1st prize in international photography awards 2015 and the Gold winner in PX3 Photo Competition 2015 (architecture category).
