Herman Chow is a photographer specialising in Landscape, Fashion, and Portrait Photography. Because of his passions in art, fashion, architecture, design, and music, his signature style is composed of energetic imagery juxtaposed with simple but powerfully emotive elements. He was born in Singapore and having lived in a cosmopolitan hotspot there for many years, coupled with his extensive travels around Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the US, his photographs sometimes boast of multicultural motifs while pushing certain cultural and artistic boundaries.
Photography has been Herman’s lifelong hobby, but it was only in 2011 that he became serious in Fashion and Portrait Photography after formally attending workshops to learn the traits of this field. He supplements such training by reading up books to improve his knowledge, and constant experimentation with models on a pro bono basis. Photography is Herman’s calling, and it is the thing which drives him insane in a positive way. He wrestles with every image in his unique approach and always brings out unique qualities of the images in every possible way. As crazy as it might sound, he loves the dramatic feel in his work.
Herman has travelled around the world for assignments including Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Singapore, London, Paris, and Madrid. His work has been published in online magazines such as VOGUE.it, Dark Beauty, Fashion Faces, Trend Prive, Men Fashion Ireland, Jute, M&M Modelling Magazine LLC Chicago, Institute Magazine, Fashionablymale, Elegant Magazine, Come to Island, and Beautiful Mag. Despite some of these accolades, Herman maintains a caring and humble disposition, and a professionalism that makes him easy to work with.
Herman currently lives with his partner and their two Scottish West Highland Terriers in The Netherlands.
