About Me

Untitled photo

Hi! This is Huibo. I'm a fine art landscape photographer based in San Diego, California. My interest in photography started back in 1999 as a hobbyist while working in the wireless communication industry. Then life got in the way and I had to give it up for quite some time. In early 2015 I rekindled my love for photography and gradually became more serious.

Landscape photography, especially in black and white, is the art medium that I'm passionate about. I use it as a creative outlet to express how I observe, interpret, and connect with nature.
