Stephen King is a landscape photographer based in Hong Kong. Fascinated by patterns formed by nature, King enjoys traveling the world in search of images that explore the landscape's capacity for both drama and serenity. King's work has been described as painterly, a style he cultivates through his use of light, color and composition. A product of two cultures, King points to his love of Chinese ink painting and American Abstract Expressionism as influences that help inform his aesthetic. King currently shoots primarily with the Phase One XF and Sony A7Rii camera systems.
A selection of King's images are available as limited edition fine art prints. Some are also available for license through Getty Images. King exhibits his work regularly in Hong Kong, including at Art Basel and Fine Art Asia and his large scale prints have proved popular with private and corporate collectors around the world. King's images are presently on display at "Otto e Mezzo", Hong Kong's popular three-star Michelin restaurant and also at the FICOFI private dining facilities. King's photos have won awards and distinctions at many of the world's most popular photo competitions and he has been featured in numerous prestigious art and photography publications including National Geographic, Asia Art News, Zoom Magazine and Art Investment Magazine. King also regularly donates his work to support charity auctions to raise funds for worthy causes.
When not pursuing his photographic passions, King manages a hedge fund and investment office in Hong Kong. King is a delegate to the China People's Political Consultative Conference of Zhejiang Province and the Honorary Consul of the Republic of Latvia in Hong Kong. King also serves as a Governor on the Board of Governors of the Chinese International School. King is a graduate of Harvard University and Phillips Academy in the US and of Eton College in the UK.
