Who will be teaching?

Sophie is a member of the Community Flower Studio Youth Subcommittee. This is her bio-

I have been taking photos on my phone and smaller cameras for awhile and then last year my dad bought a Digital SLR camera for me. I prefer taking photos in the new camera as it has more features and ranges I can explore. In photography i like creating a scene and exploring different views, angles and lighting effects.  I mostly like taking photos of inanimate objects, such as broken glass, as you can move and position the scene as much or as little as you want. I like to capture the image as true to my vision as I can so it requires as little editing as possible.

Bibi uses both her smart phone and her mirrorless camera to snap photos whenever she spotted something interesting to capture. She was given her first SLR (manual) camera when she left HK to study a degree in Sydney many years ago. She is now Dr Bibiana Chan, a Sydney based florist, mixed-media artist and public mental health researcher. She graduated from her PhD from the Faculty of Medicine, UNSW in 2007. She combines her passion for flowers, arts with her mental health advocacy. Creative activities are associated with mental wellbeing. Bibiana is keen to promote a community spirit where people in the neighbourhood come together to create arts, be it a bouquet, a necklace or a piece of artwork! She founded the Community Flower Studio (CFS) with some fellow researchers and good friends in Sept 2019.
