Both Shun and Louisa grew up in Hong Kong, but they never meet until they attended Harvey Mudd College in Clarement, California. This is the spot where they met. They returned in 2003 and took this picture.
Shun Cheung has been a serious amateur nature photographer since 1972. He grew up in Hong Kong and attended universities in California. After working for AT&T Bell Laboratories in New Jersey (just outside of New York City) for 14 years, he and his wife returned to California in year 2000. They now reside in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Louisa enjoys nature and bird watching. She was really tired of waiting for Shun to get that perfect picture, until he gave her a video camera. Now Louisa shoots anything interesting that moves. Their main interest is nature and wedding photography and video. She has produced numerous DVDs containing both of their work to be distributed in a dozen countries. She is waiting desperately for the Blue Ray or HD DVD so she can share her work in HD.
They both work as software engineers and work even harder while on vacation to travel extensively to all seven continents in the world, including both the Arctic and Antarctic. So far they have gone on photo trips to Kenya and Tanzania in East Africa, Madagascar, Antarctica, the Galapagos Islands in South America, eastern and central Australia, Svalbard/Spitzbergen in Arctic Norway, Pantanal and Iguassu in Brazil as well as many trips inside the United States.
Shun is interested in wildlife, landsacpe as well as macro photography. Formerly a film shooter, Shun mainly uses digital SLR cameras nowadays, but also shoots 645 medium format for landscape work.
Shun has published several photo travel articles in the photo.net Nature Forum: Antarctica, Galapagos Islands, Kenya, Utah National Parks.
