Image Issue: Gail Shamon

Age: 21

Hometown: Hong Kong

Education: Mostly self-taught; studio practice learned at CCAD

Years shooting: 7.5

Inspiration: The individual whose work inspired me so much to start shooting beauty, was (and still is) Jenn Collins (@jenncollins). I did not even realize ‘beauty’ was a viable niche of photography until I stumbled upon her work a year ago, and I have been completely hooked ever since. I am also heavily influenced by my cultural upbringing. Hong Kong is a beautifully diverse city and I had the privilege of growing up surrounded by a melting pot of cultures.

In 10 years I’d love to be shooting campaigns internationally for well-known beauty and fashion magazines, and regularly engaging in philanthropic endeavors regarding social economic welfare.
