Tao is an experienced photographer who focuses on automotive shoots. He has taken multiple photography classes and won numerous awards in multiple areas of photography. Moving into recent times he shifted into the automotive realm for professional shoots due to his extensive knowledge about cars and passion for shooting them. Combining beautiful images with beautiful cars makes him happier than anything in life.
The thing I love most about photography is to share my unique view with the world. I believe the way each person sees the world is unique based on their interests and passions, and photography is a wonderful way to share that unique perspective.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done automotive and portrait shoots in the past. With automotive shoots, I generally try to capture some element of the owner's relationship with the car either through the owner directly in the shot or through small details that represent the hours the owner and the car have spent together. With portrait shoots, I generally try to use lighting and texture to give images strong emotions.
