Mathew Liang




I started my creative journey back in middle school when I got into Graphics Design. I then tried out Videography in my first year of High School. This became a catalyst for my creativity and I started getting into photography because of it. I ended up enjoying this art form the most because of how it forces me to go outside and get out of my comfort zone.


I have been using Photoshop and Lightroom since 2016 and have mastered both programs for my work. I mainly shoot portraits but I also have work in events and street photography. I have experience in product and studio photography.

Why The Amateur Creative

I didn't want to tie myself to my photography because I want my work to speak for themselves so I tied my photography to an idea. This idea is that no one will ever truly know everything about photography and that means you have to keep creating and learning
