A message from the founder of the LAB:

PC: 12/34 LAB's Misaki Saito

Hello! First off, let me just say that I'm glad you're here. We could go on about the history of "Kevin Hsu" and how I am a professional violist by day and a professional photographer by night. But that's not why you're here. You want to know what 12/34 LAB is all about.

Keep scrolling.

Every member that makes up the team at the LAB are professional photographers and musicians.

It is our objective to make you feel certain emotions and capture the most authentic you for your photos. We've studied the art of injecting emotions into performing - we know what expressions are all about.

Our shoots use photojournalistic and guided posing methods, inspired by fashion and fine-art photography. For event shoots, you may get to meet additional members of LAB, trained and handpicked by me - trust me, you'll love them.

If you ever spot any LAB member in the wild, don't be shy to say hi!
