Howya! Chaosheng Zhang (Photographer)

Didn't you know that Galway is full of interesting characters? Well, we want to give you a chance to get to know some of the sound people of Galway so join us in saying Howya! to some fascinating figures... This month we got chatting to the photogenic Chaosheng Zhang....

Howya! Tell us about yourself..
My name is Chaosheng Zhang. I am a geographer and photographer.

What do you love about your job?
As a geographer, I enjoy exploring the world around me. My job is to have a better understanding of the environment which always has its mysteries.

What brought you to Galway?
I got a nice job, a permanent one, more than 23 years ago! I did not know much about Ireland at that time, but I knew it is a beautiful island where you can see the ocean.

What is your happiest memory?
The first time I saw a train. It was a cargo train. It was so impressive!

What’s your favourite thing to do in Galway?
Watching the sun go down on Galway Bay.

Tell us one thing you’d love to change about Galway?
I really hope for less rain and more sunshine!

Tell us a secret...
People who know me, know that I am an amateur photographer. My secret is that I have never used Photoshop or Lightroom. At least, not yet!

Tell us a joke!
What’s between 1 and 3?
