About Philip Liu
Why photography? I got this question quite a lot. I am working as an IT Technician and photograph nature and wildlife as a passionate hobby. My answers to why am I doing outdoor photography are because; photography motivates me to explore remote places that I might not usually go and photography takes me to spectacular scenes that I might not witness otherwise. I first started playing with cameras while I was in college in Herkimer, later in Utica, New York. Both campuses gave me an easy access to the magnificent Adirondack Forest Preserve, which inspired me to take pictures. I was a self-taught, started out like other photographers, learned from the hard way, “trial and error”. I read lots of books, magazines and articles, gathered all the fundamentals, and then, tried Technique out on roll after rolls of film. Like all other photographers, the first 100 or so rolls of film came out disappointed. However, I was getting better and better each roll after. Now, decades later, I had developed my own style with my point of view on scenery. With everything’s digital, I'm hoping to share these scenes and wonders with others through my website and prints.
