AsiaPhoto is a network of photographers in Hong Kong, Singapore and Bangkok that specialize in families, portraits, pets, weddings, corporate headshots and image retouching.
AsiaPhoto’s first incarnation was an online photography magazine and forum founded by Lance Lee in 1997 when he was an intern photographer with the Straits Times in Singapore. That was during the dot-com boom and it received a half-a-million investment from Tithes Marketing to grow it into an e-commerce venture for selling cameras online. Unfortunately, it didn’t become Asia’s BHphotovideo.com and the company folded during the dot-com crash in 2001.
Lance Lee went on to become a fashion photographer and AsiaPhoto.com remained as a less-active photography forum after its editorial management disbanded.
In 2008, Lance Lee left Singapore to work in China where he met fellow photographer and instructor Ian Robert Knight (Canada) at the Beijing Center of Photography. They share a common passion for both photography and travel (since they both chose to leave their countries to work in various Asian cities). Eventually, Lance Lee relocated to Hong Kong while Ian Robert Knight settled down in Bangkok.
In 2021, they decided to relaunch AsiaPhoto.com and grow it to become a platform for photographers to learn and socialize online and to travel and create in Asia. If you’d like to know more about AsiaPhoto, please reach out to us.
