Meet Your Guide: My name is Brian Yen and I am a Your Shot photographer. My father taught me how to take pictures with his old Canon Rangefinder. I was 12 and I was hooked. After college, I took a break from photography to concentrate on being a Silicon Valley entrepreneur. Over 10 years ago, I moved to Hong Kong. At the same time, my midlife crisis nudged me back to my old love of photography.
