My Chinese name is Chen Yanyue, and my English name is Annie. I am a professional photographer born in Chongqing, China, now living in Beijing. My job is to shoot actors, professional models, artist portraits, and of course, ordinary people. I like to observe life, observe people around, understand things around, explore all interesting things, music, artistic creation, and so on. I took the camera to sweep the street, take the cat, the art exhibition scene and so on. Through the pictures, I express my attitude to all kinds of things. That’s something I’ve picked up on with lot of my photos, particularly the ones I take for my Instagram. I carry a camera with me every day. At the same time, I hope to be able to participate in many art photography exhibitions.

I started photography because of my love of light. I love the way it reacts to objects, and the way it can be manipulated. This love led me to capturing light with the use of a camera. Originally, I loved the technical aspect of photography. I loved the studio, and manipulating the light to do what I wanted it to. Controlling ratios and angles. Contrast values and color saturation. After a while, I got good at the technical, and although it was sometimes a challenge, it lost the constant challenge. At this point, I began to take my photography outside more and more. Outside, I couldn’t control the variables. I could manipulate them, but I couldn’t control them. I had to work with what was given, and that presented a new challenge. I loved it. I started shooting outdoors more, and my excursions took me further and further from home. It was a new dimension in my photography. I was chasing light in a new way. Looking for new and wonderful glimpses of what the world had to offer. It is a huge and wonderful place that even now has so many treasures to be appreciated. My photography took a new direction: I wanted my photos to inspire people into exploring the world on their own. I wanted to show people the wonders that are still out there, so that they, too, could go out there and experience the world for themselves. Although my photos may bring the world to people, the true intentions of my photos are to bring people to the world.
