Justin L Chiu started in photography after a fateful trip to Asia when he fell in love with capturing the people, culture, and scenes around him. Soon after his travels, he left behind the corporate world and ended up working in one of Shanghai's leading commercial photography and video studios before finding his way to Philadelphia, PA.
Justin specializes in interior and portrait photography, and loves the way an image can showcase beautiful design and structure and at the same time convey a mood, a feeling, an environment, and even a brand. He loves the way a simple tilt of the head, a turn of the shoulders, a smile from the eyes, or the way the light hits a face in a portrait or headshot can convey a personality or invoke an emotion.
By working together with his clients, Justin is able to account for every detail from advance scouting of locations to clean arrangements and angles to final post-production and editing. He understands the nuances and uniqueness of each project, and is familiar with working under deadlines, around scheduling constraints, and with brand guidelines to produce the highest quality and professionalism to images. Justin has worked with groups including: The Ritz-Carlton, The Shangri-La, Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts, Marriott Group, Architectural Digest as well as Nike, IBM, McDonalds, Starbucks.
