I'm Stephanie. My Chinese name translates as 'happy cloud', which honestly is a pretty apt description of me.  As a photographer, I prize the absence of light as much as light itself. Beauty exists in the shadowed depths where our imagination sees more than our eyes.

When I'm not creating behind the lens, I am a professor at USC. Or I'm in the kitchen adding some random spice drawer find into an experimental cake. (My latest spice obsession: fennel pollen)

I am based in Los Angeles and am originally from San Francisco Bay Area. I will forever be chasing (happily) the Northern California fog.

Let's work together and play with our food!
