Stephen KING 

Stephen King is an award-winning fine art and landscape photographer based in Hong Kong whose works are popular for their painterly and meticulously composed representations of the natural world. His photos have been frequently exhibited in well-known galleries and art fairs, featured in numerous leading magazines and won recognition from the world’s most prestigious photo competitions.

In 2018, Stephen held a highly successful solo exhibition “Rhythms in Nature” at Alisan Fine Arts. He was also selected by the American Chamber of Commerce to be their featured photographer and was exhibited at Fine Arts Asia for the third straight year by Boogie Woogie Photography.

In 2017, Stephen had more photographs selected (six) than any other photographer by International Landscape Photographer of the Year for publication in their highly coveted “Top 101” book. He also had two photographs selected for Travel Photographer of the Year’s traveling exhibition and two images selected for Outdoor Photography Magazine’s annual book of top photos.  He was further awarded World Rank #3 (and HK rank #1) in the World’s Top Ten Landscape Photographers 2017 competition held by One Eyeland. Stephen has had his work featured in Zoom Magazine, Asia Art News, Hong Kong Tatler, Landscape Photography Magazine (where his photo was featured on their October 2017 cover), Art Investment Magazine and other leading publications.

 

Stephen currently shoots primarily with a Phase One XF medium format camera.  His large format limited-edition prints have proven popular with both private and corporate collectors around the world.  More of Stephen’s work can be seen on his website at www.stephenking.photo
