Fan Ho, Master Photographer’s Gear #1
We are pleased to have Fan Ho, Hong Kong Street Photographer as our #1 featured MASTER street photographer.
Fan Ho when he was younger, holding a photography award.
You can check out the interview under “Inspiration” here in this blog.
Fan Ho only used a Rolleiflex and the occasional Leica. He no longer has his cameras as he is retired. Below is a sample Rolleiflex he used.

Extraordinary person Mr. Fan Ho, I like so much how to see the human being and his environment he is not a street photographer , is a form to see the life in Urban city.

True Masters are never die. Fan Ho was really a Master of his Craft, the Art he created his Photography, the humans, people blending into the Scene, Urban Life, Street & Enviroment, very well thought, and executed.
Too sad, Fan Ho passed into 2016….he’ll being missed, but his Photography, his Art will life on…forever.
