Meet Chinatown Photographer: Andy Zhu

Today we’d like to introduce you to Andy Zhu.

Andy, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was really into technology growing up. As I was transitioning from college to adulthood, I found myself preferring to work for myself rather than someone else. I studied Computer Science in school but later changed my major to Photography. I’ve always been really into hiking, camping, and exploring our world and wanted to share the great outdoors with those around me. Getting away from urban life and stepping into mother nature has always brought much satisfaction, peace, and joy into my life. Currently, I work for an electronics company as their in-house photographer. I’m glad to be able to combine 2 of my passions into one place but ultimately, I hope to run a business of my own someday.

Has it been a smooth road?
I am fortunate to have good teachers when I was in school that both taught me well and challenged me. It helped me develop a good foundation of my craft. My main struggle is to make time to go out more to photograph what I love.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and career?
I would consider myself very fortunate to be surrounded by people who love and support me. This has influenced the choices I’ve made, which has led to the opportunities I’ve had, and I am grateful for all the blessings and provisions that have been a result of that.

Do you feel like there are certain traits that increase the likelihood of success?
Dedication and hard work always pay off. Being flexible and open-minded is also very important to me.

What do you love about our city and what do you dislike?
I love the diverse culture here in Los Angeles. You can find pretty much anything. I’d have to say my least favorite thing about the city is the traffic and noise.
