My name is Johnny, C.Y. is the initial of my Chinese name - 仲賢 (Chung Yin).
I am primarily an on-location photographer, focusing on portraiture, interior, travel and documentary photography.
My home base is near Kingston, Ontario but I am happy to travel for editorial, advertising and private commissions worldwide.
Photographing people and travelling are my life passion. I have always had a strong sense of curiosity about the world and enjoy telling stories with my images through making real connections with the people I photograph.
I grew up in Hong Kong and moved to Canada with my family at age 16. Although I studied commercial illustration, it is in photography where I find my voice as an artist. I hold both Canadian and Hong Kong citizenships and speak fluent English, Cantonese and Mandarin.
Some of my favourite things are airports, bonsai and dim sum. When I am not away taking photos, I enjoy cycling, fishing, cooking or reading photo books at home.
Best way to get in touch with me is via email.
