The Chinese idea of a photo portfolio is quite different from that in the West. They love to see scenarios of the subject embedded in fantasy settings. Most of the text they use is "Chinglish," which often consists of English words or letters used more or less as decoration, just as Westerners may grab a few Chinese characters without any regard for their meaning. The photography studio allowed me to clean up the larger English headings; you may catch some of the Chinglish in the smaller text. (Click here to see a wonderful collection of Chinglish signs.)
