i met tao zhang about ten years ago when we were both working on a pta benefit. at the time, tao was just starting to explore the notion of being a photographer. today, he’s one of the most sought after photographers for weddings, christenings, graduations, and other important occasions. he has a particular whimsical and personal style that exactly matches whoever and whatever he’s photographing. i was talking to him about the strange journey he has made from being a radio announcer in china to a gentleman of the north shore.
and he’s happy! really happy with the career that he’s developed. but we couldn’t just talk–that would be a waste of a perfectly talented photographer!
we went to the stairwell of his building and took a few shots. i’m wearing my carharts which are absolutely essential for this weather! tao also does photography for many north shore magazines. he’s a real treasure!
you can see more of his work or even book a special occasion picture (how about an early valentine?) by going to http://lensworkstudio.com!
