H. Vincent, how did your Instagram account come to life?
I joined an “Instameet” in Shanghai in 2013 and I was inspired by other talented “Instagrammers”, so I thought it would have been a great occasion to take more seriously my passion for photography.
H. What are you willing to communicate through your account?
I want to express my personal mood, or the food and great scenery. I love travelling and of course I'm ready to share my trip through my account.
H. What are the key elements to create an interesting Insta account?
I think you have to create your Instagram style first, and then stick to it. Don't give up, you will gain the attention from others.
H. Who would you like to work with and what is next for Vincent Cuk / Mr Shu Zhen?
Hmm it's a hard question. I have no idea about whom to work with yet. My plan is to open my personal workshop or restaurant in 5-6 years at latest. Hope I can achieve my dream.
H. The corner (bar or restaurant) of your city you like most, your favourite holiday destination, the movie that everyone must watch.
I love the Sugar bar at the top of East Hotel in Hong Kong.
My favourite destination so far was Sydney, but I'm looking forward to go to Capetown if I have a chance.
The movie that everyone must watch is The Shawshank Redemption,my favorite!
