Hi Mr. Kwan.
It's me, Kate :)
Hope all is well with you.
You got so amazing gallery!
Your pictures have special stories and a unique view of subjects.
I can't wait to see photos in Korea!!
Adam 25-Oct-2011 08:55

I really like your photos and I got a question. I love your small alleys photos and do you know about any book / guide about those "hidden" alleys or places in Hong Kong or books about old Hong Kong as I cannot find anything. Or maybe you know part of Hong Kong to see which is not included in guide books. I'm going to Hong Kong in December and would like to take some photos of those places as I'm photographer myself.

You can see my photos on Flickr: /tretos/

and also on my website which is under construction as I'm updating it: photos [dot] tretos [dot] net

I have an old Emik camera that my father bought in Germany just after the war ended, around 1945, is it possible they had been made earlier.

Dear Mr Kwan. It is always a pleasure to admire eye catching portfolios. I would like to see you shoot in black and white.
Angel M. 20-Sep-2009 06:32
I am pretty sure you have heard the sayings "the camera is just a box" or "there are not great cameras,just great fotographers" but in your case you must be grateful for having such a fine gear as a Nikon D2X,a D3 and a D200, not to mention low light and expencive lenses.But you seem to know how to put it all together and the results are very good fotography.Keep up the good work.

Mr. Kwan. I want to thank you for advising me about lighting techniques and equipment. I admire your work, and admit that much of my floral and other still lifes lean heavily on your work for their technique and presentation. I have added a note to the introduction of my Still Life, 08 gallery recognizing that debt and expressing my gratatude. Thank you sincerely, for the sharing the many beautiful images, and for the inspiration and advise. Sincerely, Lee
