National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year, Anthony Lau, is joining the RGS for an evening to recount his tales and adventures, whilst capturing the perfect photograph. He has travelled all around the world with his camera, from some of the remotest villages in China and Inner Mongolia to the Maasai Mara in Kenya. As well as sharing his tales and photographs, Anthony describes the techniques that he uses to capture the moment and how he approaches creating compelling visual stories.

On his travels, Anthony has seen some amazing sights including, on a trip to Inner Mongolia, a steam train thunder across the frozen grassland.  On that same trip, he met a horseman who changed his life.  It was this man who he captured with his herd that lead to Anthony winning National Geographic’s Travel Photographer of the Year award in 2016.  His winning picture “Winter Horseman” is now being exhibited in various National Geographic Fine Art Galleries.

He has now found himself photographing polar bears in Manitoba, Canada at -37C and even leading his first overseas workshop.  He was also the primary photographer for Crystal AirCruises on their maiden voyage with their Boeing 757, leading a new form of travel as he went to the Maasai Mara.  Anthony Lau explores all of this and more in his talk and subsequent Q&A.

Anthony Lau is a Hong Kong based photographer.  He studied Business Administration in City University of Hong Kong and also a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt.  His careers spans 25 years across the logistics, payment and professional service industries.  His passion for photography started in 2006.  His first exhibition was during Photokina in Cologne, Germany in 2014.  Since then he has participated in multiple major photo contest and competitions.

Members, guests and others are most welcome to attend this talk, which is HK$150 for Members and HK$200 for guests and others including a glass of red or white wine. This event is free of charge for Student Members.
