Edward Lai

About Edward:
Edward was born in Taiwan and raised in Victoria, BC. He now lives in the culturally diverse city of Vancouver.

Edward’s love for photography started shortly after high school. A few of his close friends were pursuing an education in photography, and it didn’t take very long before Edward began experimenting with film. Creating images, both moving and still, quickly evolved into a passion. However, creating compelling stories through these images was what really intrigued Edward. It should come as no surprise that Edward loves people; his photography is an extension of that.
