Brenda Yin Taipei Portraiture and Fashion Photographers

Since she was a child, Brenda has always had a keen passion for the visual arts. What initially began as an uncomplicated enjoyment of drawing and painting, progressively built into an enchantment with photography, video and filmmaking; she later graduated in Mass Communication. Today, an appreciation, and even an obsession, for industrial, graphic, fashion and interior design can be found in her photography.

"Inspiration for my art emerges from a thoughtful examination of broadcast and digital media. Film, music, television, and all forms of internet and mobile communication are among the sources. However, far beyond the ordinary, my photography is contemplative, reflective and introspective. Even in my observations of people and their everyday interactions, I am able to cleverly and uniquely focus on the eccentricities and peculiarities of life."

Susan Sontag’s writings provide perhaps the greatest influence in Brenda's approach to photography. Sontag said that “life is not significant details, illuminated by flash, fixed forever. Photographs are." In her own art, Brenda has embraced this philosophy.

Focusing on commercial image production, I shoot predominantly product work and portraits for advertising, branding and marketing purposes. Enjoying working closely with my clients helps me communicate and understand the needs and then how to deliver their requirements and more.

The variety of my work brings excitement and challenges daily; all the things that keep me focused to produce the highest standard of work in the most professional manner.
