9Congratulations! As the winner of the London Photography Awards, what does it mean for you and your team to receive this distinction?
Thank you. Receiving this award is a great honour for me. It represents my effort and dedication to the art of photography and encourages me further for future projects.
10Can you explain a bit about the winning work you entered into the 2024 London Photography Awards, and why you chose to enter this project?

The winning photos of beautiful and unique buildings, each of which is a symbol in different parts of the world. However, I created a different atmosphere by incorporating beautiful reflections and water droplets, which symbolise life and vitality, thereby enhancing the beauty of the architectural work.

I chose this project because I wanted to demonstrate that photography can showcase the culture and hidden beauty of these places to the world.

11How has winning an award developed your career?
Participating in international competitions is like attending a class for me, where I both learn and meet new classmates, each with outstanding talents and remarkable creativity.
12What was the best piece of advice you were given starting out, by a mentor or your role model?

The best piece of advice I received when starting out in photography was from a mentor who told me, "Always keep your eyes open. Inspiration can strike at any moment, and it's important to be prepared to capture it."

This advice has stayed with me throughout my career, reminding me to stay observant and ready. Photography is as much about seeing and perceiving as it is about the technical aspects of the camera.

By keeping an open mind and an attentive eye, I've been able to capture moments that are not only visually appealing but also emotionally resonant. This approach has helped me develop a unique style and perspective that continues to evolve with each shot I take.

13What advice would you give someone who would like to become a photographer today?
My advice is to always photograph with love and passion. Learn from the experiences of others, but maintain your own style and perspective. Additionally, make use of new technologies and keep yourself updated.
14What is your key to success? Any parting words of wisdom?
The key to my success is perseverance and continuous effort. I also always remind myself to "never stop learning.“
15Anything else you would like to add to the interview?
I am very grateful for the opportunity given to me and I hope that through my work, I can achieve positive impacts in the world of photography.
