Mentoring: We all need those who challenge us to bring out the best in our skills and abilities. Now more than ever we need less sameness that education and tutoring is creating and more dynamic and growth that is a result of mentoring.
What others are saying:
Most artists are satisfied with a good perspective of a particularly scene, not Stephen – he pushes the boundaries as to what’s possible and creates from a completely unique perspective. I guess you can say his artistry can be felt and seen in each masterpiece he creates – Kavish – South Africa
It is humbling to say the least when I see your work. – Kevin Greene – USA
The end product……….Brilliance! – Cary – Hong Kong – American Expat

This is Hong Kong and Lapse of Time Hong Kong are a unique view of Hong Kong as captured by Stephen Duddridge. As a proud resident of Hong Kong and one who tries to draw a digital image of the beauty that is HK.
Over the years Stephen has been fortunate to not only travel to many different locations but also lived on four continents. The one that means the most is the one that he’s sacrificed a great deal of time and talent into capturing. From the first time he visited Hong Kong and met his new family he knew this was home. As different as it was from his past experiences there was something that was combining them all together. From the sense of past colonial days and mixture of old with new it was everything in one. From the street markets that bought back early childhood memories of the passion and beauty of the markets in Rome. Then there is that strong connection with the country I called home the longest being Canada. Canada has become a second home to many Hong Kong people over the years and I feel in many ways I can sense that both places are better off for it.
Photography today is more accessible than ever as the cellphone has made everyone a photographer. As a professional it’s something that we are all very aware of and understand now more than ever people want something that they either can’t capture, won’t have the chance or something truly special. The images on this website are just snapshots. They are a record of present history. They are also taken around some of the most dynamic weather situations. The city is very much a centerpiece and capturing time-lapse that takes endless hours of commitment can result in a view that not many others with have the time or the ability to capture.
