Born in Beijing and raised in Singapore, Jingna Zhang is a fashion and fine art photographer and director based in New York City and Seattle. Imbued with love for the Pre-Raphaelites and Japanese anime, Jingna’s work interweaves Asian aesthetics with western art styles, bringing fantastical visions of painterly images to fashion and fine art photography.
Prior to picking up the camera, Jingna was a world-class air rifle shooter representing Singapore at the Commonwealth Games and World Cup. She was the only female founder of a North American esports team in StarCraft 2; and was agent and consultant to concept artists and illustrators, working with clients including LucasArts, Amazon Publishing, and Sony Music Japan.
Jingna majored in fashion design before dropping out to pursue photography. She is an alumna of Stanford Ignite and a Forbes Asia 30 Under 30 list maker.
Over the years, Jingna has photographed for various editions of Vogue, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar. Her clients include Mercedes Benz, Montblanc, Lancome, and her fine art works have exhibited at Leica Gallery Milan, Tsinghua University, and Japan Creative Centre in Singapore.
