As an extension to his photography, he works with brands to enhance their social media presence through images & digital marketing; doing trips for media shoots to build awareness, increase promotion, and overall exposure for their business.
To pursue a full-time life of telling stories through his photography, Peter left behind a successful career with Apple. He has now grown his social media accounts (Instagram & TikTok) to over half a million followers from far & wide, who follow him to be a part of his journey. One of his most successful images to date is of a Cormorant fisherman in China. This image truly brought a vitality to Peter’s work & also much-deserved attention to a culture, & practice that is still held in high regard in China, Japan, & Korea.

With a vast range of skills, Peter has been described by past clients as flexible & artful, always bringing their vision to life, & adapting to the varying conditions that travel-photography can warrant. As a visual content creator, digital marketer, & entrepreneur, Peter is a force to be reckoned with & just hopes that his photography will inspire others to travel, & follow their dreams the same way he has.
When he’s not traveling, Peter is quite introverted & you can usually find him relaxing at home, & watching YouTube. Being a Pisces, he stays true to the creative tones of his zodiac sign, & is always trying to find ways to put inspiration into his art. Chinese-born, Peter is a big fan of Chinese food, but one of the things he loves most about his travels is being able to experience the varying cultures (& cuisines) of life across the globe.
