Yip Wai-ying is a veteran cinematographer who began his career in the mid-1980s. He had served as a camera assistant under such top-notch local cinematographers as Arthur Wong, Peter Ngor, Andrew Lau, Tom Lau, Adam Tam and Cheung Man-po.

Yip lensed his first film in 1996 with Devil’s Woman, but it was not until the year 2000 that he became a full-time cinematographer. Among his most notable work was A Wicked Ghost II: The Fear (2000).

In 2001, Yip started working for B & S Films Creation Works House, directing more than a dozen digital features, including Crazy For Pig-Bone In Pot (2001), as well as four horror films in the Troublesome Night series (2001-2003). In addition, he served as the cinematographer on numerous digital features.

In 2003, Yip directed his first 35mm feature, My Troublesome Buddy, and followed up in 2006 with Half Twin, which he directed and lensed. As a director and cinematographer, Yip is known mostly for horror and suspense films, and is adept at crafting terrifying and other worldly imageries.

Yip shifted his career base to Mainland China in 2004 and codirected Men in the Blue Mood (2004) with Chinese actor Xu Chenglin, as well as directing the TV series The Lotus (2004), starring Tse Kwan-ho.

His most recent directorial effort was The True Love (2014), starring Stephy Tang, while his latest work as cinematographer was The Extreme Fox (2014), starring Chrissie Chau. Both films were released in Mainland China in 2014.
