Starting this week, I will be a contributor to HKPhotographer.net, a new website for photographers here in Hong Kong (and across Asia). HKPhotographer.net is looking to help grow the photographic community in Hong Kong, bringing together amateurs and professionals with articles, reviews, classifieds and links.

Photography is a very popular hobby in Hong Kong, there are a number of good, locally based photographers and the market for Fine Art photography is developing steadily. Moreover, the city was once known as being a great place to buy camera equipment, though that is less the case these days.

My brief is to write about photography and photographic technology. I’m not an expert and don’t plan to write like one. This opportunity has come in part because my portfolio has recently expanded and there is growing interest around my photographic links here and on Twitter. Although I’ve taken photos since childhood, the length of time I have taken this seriously can still be measured in months and weeks, rather than decades and years. So, I’m humbled and excited to be part of this project.

I won’t be cross-posting the articles from HKPhotographer.net on this blog. For me, they are separate activities. This blog is personal and non-commercial whereas writing for HKPhotographer.net involves being part of a commercial venture, just like writing for a magazine.

In time, I will create an identity for my photographic work, not unlike what I’ve done with SoundWallah. Something more developed than Flickr and more tightly focussed than the photographic posts on this blog. I’m not ready to do that yet, but it will happen before the year is out.
