Yan Zhang Photography | About
I am a Computer Scientist and a full-time university professor with specialization on Artificial Intelligence based in Sydney, Australia.

I started digital photography practice in 2007, which eventually changed my perception about the world. I have been tirelessly exploring the scenes of nature near and far, and trying to capture those magical moments and transform them into eternal art. Now I am devoting my passion to landscape photography. My photography focuses are grand landscapes of oceans, sky and mountains, as well as fine natural substances. As a landscape photographer with science origin, my ultimate goal is to capture the true beauty of the nature around us.

Some of my works have been selected for publishing on 1x online gallery and its photography books. I am currently a crew member of 1x e-Magazine team. My 500px site also displays some of my popular images. Recently, I have been selected as a featured photo artist on Global Vernissage. I am also a member of 4aperture. My photography blog describes my recent photography activities.
