Patrick Wong

I’ve met fashion photographer Patrick Wong for the first time last week – we were supposed to shoot a couple of pictures of the new Afternoon collection by eco-chic Beijing-based Neemic.

就在Patrick黄为新晋时尚品牌Neemic拍摄新一季单品时,我们见面了。作为时尚摄影师,Patrick有着绝对的时尚敏感和特有的摄影触觉。

Shy and reserved, he was at ease only when behind his camera.

但同时,他又是害羞的,不多言的,只有在拿起相机时他才收放自如。

Originally from Hong Kong, Patrick has been living in Beijing for a long time, developing his skills and adjusting to the fastly-paced life in China. I wanted to know more, so we had a chat while we shot.

Patrick离开香港到北京已经有些年头,渐渐适应了北京的生活节奏。就在他忙碌的拍摄间隙,我们聊了一会。

Have you always wanted to be a photographer?

Yes. Since I was a kid, whenever I take a picture, I immediately feel in love with it and this feeling makes me love photography more – this is why every single day I enjoy being a photographer.

做摄影师是你一直以来的梦想吗?

是的,當我拍到一張漂亮的照片,我自己會很自戀的喜歡上這張照片,這令我覺得我更喜歡拍照,喜歡做一個攝影師.

When and where did you buy your first camera?

It was around 2006: I was a student in HK enrolled in a photography class. My first camerera was a digital one, D70, and I had to use up all my savings. At that time, digital cameras were starting to replace traditional cameras, and my teacher asked to buy one for better understanding commercial photography.

你的第一部相机是在哪儿买的,什么时候买的?

大概在2006年左右吧,當我在香港讀攝影的時候,我存了半年的錢,買了一部數碼相繼D70,那時候剛好傳統膠片相機跟數碼相機替換的年代,為了更好掌握商業攝影,當時學校老師要求買一部數碼相機.

Who thought you how to use a professional camera?

Mr. Zhai Jinwen, my teacher back in HK. He taught me how to use a professional camera and told me everything about a collection of pictures. Still today I feel very grateful to him.

谁教会你商业摄影的?

那是我的攝影老師–翟錦文老師,不但教會了我怎麼用專業相機,還教會了我什麼是一輯照片,這對於現在的我還是受用無窮。所以我不得不在這謝謝我的老師.

What is the most interesting project you are working on right now?

Working with designer brand Neemic on its new Autumn/Winter collection. I found its design idea and style are pretty consistent with my vision and my works, especially the latest shooting (you can find all the pictures from that shooting here). We had to complete the shooting within a limited time and, even under pressure, we did a very satisfying job. I feel I need to thank  Neemic for this great chance.

能和我们说说你现在做的最优意思的作品吗?

那是跟時裝品牌–Neemic新的一季的服裝畫冊拍攝,他們的設計理念跟風格都跟我拍攝風格很相近,尤其是最近一次是攝影跟攝像一起進行,與時間競賽的一次拍攝,那次我們都在限定的時間內完成了一輯滿意的作品,在此我也在這謝謝我們的團隊,謝謝Neemic給我的一次拍攝機會。

How do you keep yourself updated about new trends and techniques?

I love visiting bookstores and reading magazins. Also I find useful to stay home going through all my favorite websites.

你是怎么保持时刻与时尚潮流与时俱进的呢?

我喜歡在空閒的時候去書店看雜誌,或者在家上網看網上,攝影師的網站等等.

What do you like to take pictures at?

Well, I enjoy different scenarios, such as panoramic views, city street style, still life. I’m deeply in love with photography, whatever I shoot.

你喜欢拍摄哪些题材?

我喜歡拍的題材很多,風景,城市的街拍,肖像等等,總的來說,我喜歡拍照,什麼題材都沒所謂。

What is your dream for your career development?

I want to focus on people. I love presenting peoples uniqueness through my works.

你对职业生涯有什么梦想吗?

我想日後專注於肖像攝影,喜歡追求拍出不同人屬於他們自己獨特的狀態。

01Wearing the pieces from the new “Afternoon” collection in preview was a big honour for me, and Patrick was able to make me feel confident and beautiful.

本次拍摄我特意穿上了Neemic秋冬的新品,还好Patrick让我特别放松,呈现出了Neemic最自然、温柔的状态。

Hopefully there will be more and more pictures around from this talented photographer, so just #staytuned.

当然啦,以后我会在博客中贴出更多Patrick的作品的,我们一起期待吧。

Per me e’ sempre un piacere posare di fronte ad una macchina fotografica. Questa volta pero’ con Patrick Wong, schivo fotografo di Hong Kong, e’ successo qualche cosa di magico: saranno stati i vestiti, parte della nuova “Afternoon” collection firmata da Neemic, sara’ stata la location, in un ex-complesso industriale nel cuore di Pechino, ma io e Patrick ci siamo capiti subito. E le foto sono venute benissimo. Voi che ne dite?
