Prints ready for framing

I use a local printing company that specialises in making the high-quality prints you see in museums and fine-art exhibitions. If you're looking for a photo as a gift or to decorate your home or office, please browse through the catalogue to see the photos we have available, then click here to let me know:

  • which photos you like,
  • the size of print you prefer (Standard is 8x10", and large is 12x15". Custom enlargements are available), and
  • where you'd like the prints delivered to (overseas orders are welcome)

I'll reply with all the details.

Digital copies for commercial projects

You've seen Gwulo's photos around Hong Kong already, as they've been used in advertisements, books, exhibitions, interior design for offices and restaurants, etc.

Our photos have been carefully scanned at high-resolution, then digitally restored and made available as 16-bit images in Photoshop format to give you full flexibility in how you use them. TIFF and JPEG formats are also available if you prefer.

Please browse through the catalogue to see which images are suitable, then click here to let me know which photographs you're interested in and how you plan to use them in your project. I'll let you know how I can help.

Illustrated talks

Not your usual death-by-powerpoint! I'll bring along a selection of my favourite photos, all scanned at high resolution. We'll use a projector and a big screen so we can zoom in to see their hidden details, and I'll tell you all about their stories.

Talks last around 45-50 minutes, then I'm happy to answer as many questions as the audience has to ask.

A typical audience is around 30-50 guests, though I've also given talks to smaller groups for businesses, and to larger groups for clubs. (The current record is 98 - can you help me crack 100?)

Here are outlines of the three talks I currently offer: #1, #2, and #3.

Guns, Graves, and Geckos - a Gwulo guided walk around Mount Davis

The route is a favourite of mine for a morning walk. I've lived around here for over 20 years, and walk it once or twice a week. So after several thousand walks spent looking at things along the way and thinking "I wonder why that's like that...?", it seemed a good idea to share some of the answers!

We'll start at the Pokfield Road bus terminus, head up Pokfulam Road, along Mount Davis Road, and back along Victoria Road to end up at Kennedy Town and the MTR station. As a plain walk it takes less than an hour, but with stops for talking we'll take closer to two hours. Suitable for groups of up to 12 people.

Please click here to contact me for further details.

I look forward to hearing from you,
