Fashion photographer Chiun-Kai Shih’s Live Portrait Exhibition at the Levi’s® Workshop was a blast
Last night Leica Camera hosted a reception to celebrate Chiun-Kai Shih’s Live Portrait Exhibition from 7PM-9PM at the Levi’s® Workshop. The reception showcased portraits of celebrity friends and candid shots of Workshop patrons created earlier that day by famed Fashion Photographer and Conde Nast China Contributing Creative Director Chiun-Kai Shih. Photographer Chiun-Kai Shih is chiefly known for having captured some of today’s most iconic fashion spreads for various Conde Nast Publications including Vogue Germany and GQ Taiwan, as well as InStyle, Entertainment Weekly and The New York Times. In his work, Chiun-Kai Shih focuses on people’s energy - capturing unexpected moments to create sparks of excitement and true emotion. Complimenting his exceptional photographic style, Chiun-Kai Shih will shot with the Leica S2, a supremely professional camera that features flexibility, durability and easy operation combined with industry-leading resolution and image quality. I was fortunate enough to be asked to pose for a portrait along with my partner in crime fashion stylist and Ford Models agent Tayo Fajemisin. Check out our image as well as a few others from the show and some shots of the events guests having a blast.
