Biography

My name is Shih-Wen. I grow up in Taiwan for over 30 years. There are four members in my family. My parents have retied now, and my sister is a Photo Retoucher in a Wedding Dressing Studio. We have good cooperation in our creation.

In my college time, I majored in English Literature and Teacher Education Program. But in my last year, I also learned the Art Management, it makes me a lot interests in the art works and performance arts.

When I graduated from college, I worked in NGO and was responsible for the Project Executive of Campus Ministry. Except the routine affairs, I found my passion in photograph and liked to be a storyteller from my photos. My friends and coworkers all like to hear from my photo's background. I think it's a good opportunity to share my ideas of photos. During this working time, I become a backpacker lover, too. By traveling, I can take more pictures and tell more story about myself.

In 2012, I built my own photo studio, and offered the photo service of Wedding Recording, Pre-Wedding, Children Photos, and any unique anniversary recording. My customs like my storytelling style because I will not only give them professional photo procedure, but also find the connection in my shooting ideas.

Now, I still take photos, try to write the story and keep it in my Blog and Facebook. I think when I pick up my camera, it is the history. Hope that I can keep the passion in my works and creative life.
