Student sharing

Lewis Lau Tsz-kin
Year 3 student (Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours in Cinematic Design and Photographic Digital Art)

Lewis Lau Tsz-kin’s interest in photography started in secondary school. He learnt about the OUHK’s professional photography programme before sitting the HKDSE, and gladly included it in his list of programme choices. He was admitted, and is now in the third year of studying the above programme.

His studies have developed his artistic sense and expanded his knowledge of photography. He said confidently, ‘I’ve made the right choice!’ For someone who dislikes a deskbound office job, flexible, creative work is the natural first choice. In pursuing a career as a professional photographer, Lewis already has plans to form a production team, before he goes after his ultimate dream of owning a studio.
