On the 12th episode of “Unfiltered”, New York-based Albert Cheung of FRAME Studios joined publicist Rachael Brink in conversation about his recent shoot at the LX Pavilion and life during the COVID-19 pandemic. Albert talked about his background in architecture, which took a fortuitous turn toward architectural photography during the 2008 recession. Since then, Albert founded FRAME Studios with Frank Wang to capture stories through photography, videography, and visual media.
Albert’s work on the LX Pavilion came as an opportunity from his friend and the chief architect at OLI Architecture, Hiroshi Okamoto. The architect asked Albert to photograph the pavilion through the seasons, as well as the LX sculpture that it houses. As an architectural photographer with habitually quick turnaround times on projects, Albert relished the time he got to spend photographing the LX Pavilion over the course of the year.
Recently, Albert has been focused on improving his drone work at his friends’ small weddings and engagements. Through FRAME Studios, he is also finding ways to help photographers and videographers stay busy. When he’s not doing professional work, Albert has taken to teaching his children to play the ukulele.
