Eric Yip

EYXL

Photographer born out of the passion for making images to convey messages. My past life includes 10 years in human resources consulting in the Asia Pacific region, bid management in the telecommunications space and a whole lot of camping / canyoning / climbing / dragon boating / beer drinking. It took 5 years for the move towards full-time photography. And now, 5 years down the line, life as an image-make could not be better. Focussing on fitness, active lifestyle and portraits for the commercial and advertising space, the work can be described as: energetic, shapely and colourful. As I am involved from conception to completion of the images, risk is low and accuracy high on achieving the brief. When I need silence and peace; I shoot architecture and buildings.

Describe your working environment in a few sentences..

Varied with different studios and locations. Always picking the most fitting for each subject and concept.

What sets you apart from other freelancers in your industry?

There are many amazing creatives out there... I hope that my own high-expectations, experience and taste can fit some client's needs. It is the fit between any client's expectations and photographers abilities that will make extraordinary images - and every fit is different.

High resolution cameras and lenses with contingencies. Full set of studio and location lighting equipment. Production equipment for managing light on set. Retouching tools for finessing images for final delivery.

Do you collaborate with others? If yes, how does that works?

Absolutely. It all starts with an idea which needs to be realised. Each collaborator must have a clear contribution and participate accordingly to make very high-level work.
