While in high school, Kimiko Chan received her first camera and quickly fell in love with capturing the details of her world. After studying painting for more than 20 years, Chan decided to attend New York Film Academy’s Photography Program to learn some of the practical elements of photography.
While in the program, Chan recalls her class trip to the Dominican Republic as one of the highlights of her experience. “The DR trip was the best moment at NYFA,” said Chan. “Teachers and students traveled together and worked as a group to explore the country while taking photos and documenting the live’s of local people.
Since completing her program at NYFA, Chan has worked in fashion photography for Cosmo China magazine, Lucy’s magazine, and some Chinese celebrities.
“Nowadays, fashion photography trends are more real and more relaxed,” says Chan. “More and more fashion photographers try to explore the deep feeling of human nature instead of a beautiful picture.”
