Available Light Images has been running 7 years worldwide photography tours and workshops. No surprise, that most of our trips were going to some of classic landscape locations of China, because of myself, have been born and raised in China.

I have moved to London in 2020, after China closed borders because Covid-19 and the outlook of continue running trip to China become impossible for foreseeable. Since then, I took a new career path in working with children, and subsequently, I have developed a passion for my new job, it gives me great delight and joy in exploring a life in London.

I do wish soon, able to travel back to China again, especially the Himalayas, the home of my spirit. Although, with limited annual leaves from my new job, possibly I can run one trip per year when China opens border again. I choose Gobi Desert, a landscape where I can combine artistic expression and have a deep experience in nature. Please register your interest, and I will get in touch when a firm date arrives ( Will be in September or October). 

The Himalayas will have to live inside of me for now, but I will return as an artist, in the form of a daughter, a lover, or a flake of snow.

I have just returned from an outstanding photographic adventure in China and Tibet with Juanli Sun. She has the uncanny ability to take us to remote places to capture remarkable images. Her artistic ability gave me a chance to see the world a little differently, and the images I’ve returned with are some of the best I’ve ever done. As native of the area, Juanli is the perfect workshop leader for an unforgettable experience in China and Tibet.
