William Ye


SUMMARY

William Ye, 27-year-old multi International award winning portrait and fine art photographer based in Toronto, FAPA student and non-professional grand winner 2017/2018.

My passion for fine art photographyignited 3 years ago, under the influences of famous contemporary artists andphotographers of our generation, such as Annie Leibovitz, Erwin Olaf, JuliaHetta, Jennifer Thoreson (formerly Jennifer Hudson) and to name a few. Sincethen, I worked hard to form my own photographic style and develop my ownphotographic vision, which ultimately rewarded me with several International photographyawards.

My favourite subjects are psychology, emotionsand feelings. I cannot literally photograph them as they are highly abstract,non-visual and intangible concepts, so instead, I try to photograph the variousimageries associated with these concepts to translate something abstract intotangible visuals. 

I love photography and use it as a medium for creation. Since I recently started my full time PhD at University of Toronto, my commitment is somewhat limited due to hefty school work. However, if you like my work, and wish to collaborate or book me for photoshoots, please feel free to drop me a message from the contact page.

Sincerely,

William
