In the fall of 2005, Pop Photo readers showed their savvy when they voted Michael Soo of Cupertino, CA, Pop's 2005 Photographer of the Year. Michael, a computer programmer, has re-launched himself as a fledgling professional photographer, specializing in high fashion, beauty, food, and events. His recent work shows the same sophisticated gloss and image editing expertise that impressed our readers back in 2005…only more so. Take a minute and reacquaint yourself with Soo's technical and aesthetic range. You might find it inspiring.
