Crystal Leung was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to San Francisco at the age of 5. At a young age, she would always pick up the digital camera and take photos of everything around the neighborhood. During high school, she took classes in graphic design which introduced her to programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator, giving her her first glimpses of photo editing. Her passion only grew when she purchased her first DSLR camera with money saved up working various jobs. However, the fire died down when she was started college. She picked up the camera less frequently until she ultimately sold all of her camera equipment. After graduation, she began working and did not think she would ever pursue photography again. However, she was reintroduced to the camera when approached with a request to learn more about the photography. She has since worked on various projects such as photoshoots and videos.
