Greg Chen
Graduated from University of British Columbia, I have been a landscape and portrait photographer and instructor for over 15 years. Over these years, I have developed a keen ability to capture the subjects in their most natural states and to combine solid landscape and portrait photography skills to compose works with unique and striking lighting.

As a Chinese grown up in Canada, my artistic style is heavily influenced by both the Western and Asian cultures. While often using strong colours and contrasts to accentuate the subjects, I also have expressed a gentle and subtle side in my works.

I believe that a good picture always tells a story, no matter how small or large. A story could be found anywhere, anytime. Both gun smokes in epic battlefields and a glimpse of a little girl on the street corner are equally unique and intriguing .

To me, the photography is first a life-long passion before it is a job. I strongly believe that one has to absolutely love what he/she does to excel in the job.

I enjoy meeting new people, learning their stories, and being a part of creating images of life-long memories; but even more, I love helping people to learn and enjoy the art of photography, and therefore on their own they can look at this world differently, find beauties in our ordinary lives, and create the images that tell stories and last for a long time.

Besides being a photographer, I am also a passionate music fun, single-handicap golfer, seasoned snowboarder, world traveller, and international business consultant. While I find peace in these activities outside of my day-to-day job, involving in music, sports, and getting close and personal with different cultures in return inspires my creativity in photography.


陈戈,Greg Chen, 在加拿大温哥华开始他的摄影生涯。毕业于英属哥伦比亚大学,他从事摄影15年,尤以捕捉人物自然表情体态见长,同时他深厚的设计及风景照功力和敏锐的用光更赋予他作品以独特和出众的生命力。

作为一个在加拿大长大的华人摄影师,Greg的摄影风格深受东西方两种文化的影响。他的作品除了有鲜明的色彩和强烈的光影的同时,也常常表现出东方特有的温柔和含蓄。

Greg相信一副好的摄影作品应该是会给人们想象的空间和余地。只有“有故事”的摄影才能不止吸引人们的眼球,而更多的是吸引人的内心。从Greg的人物还是风作品,风景或者人像,都可以看出他明确的创作意图和出众的“讲故事”的能力。

摄影对于Greg来讲,首先是他生命中的激情所在,然后才是工作。他坚信一个人只有热爱他或者她所做的事业才有可能成为行业中的佼佼者,而“做最好的”一直是Greg的职业信条。

Greg喜欢和客户交流,和他们成为朋友,分享他们的快乐,特别是当他看到自己的作品给这些客户留下了一些一生难忘的美好瞬间和回忆时;但更让他有满足感的是,看见自己的摄影学生通过学习,分享,渐渐的开始享受摄影带来的可以让人受益终身的乐趣,开始用不同的眼光观察这个世界,并在日常生活中发现那些以前一直不曾发现的美。

除了摄影及摄影教学,Greg也是一个热情的音乐爱好者,一名单差点的高尔夫球手,一名多年的滑雪单板运动员,以及一个周游世界的“驴友”。他不但在这些活动中找到工作和生活的平衡,更重要的是,运动,音乐和不同的文化风景源源不断的激发了他的摄影灵感和创造性。
