After got his EE Ph.D. degree, he worked in the Power Supply and Semiconductor industry for many years, and he believed that would be his career until he retired. As Songquan says, "The best part of life is the uncertainty, which means you never know what will happen next. It could be good or bad, happy or sad. Whatever it is, it won't be boring!" In 2008, he received a very important birthday gift from his dear wife – a Nikon D80 DSLR camera. It opened his eyes to an exciting world, filled with lights and colors. In January 2012, it became obvious that photographing cities was much more interesting than soldering capacitors onto circuit boards. Songquan quit his engineering job and became a full-time freelance travel photographer. Songquan’s photography collection contains images from many places across the globe, including North America, Europe and Asia. As his travels continue, new collections are added frequently. Combined with both artistry and a commercial perspective, Songquan Deng’s work is used widely by major companies, such as Yahoo, National Geographic and Forbes. His work also appears in a large number of magazines, and on many book and CD covers, post cards and calendars. This event is sponsored by NiSi Filters and Skylum Software.
