My father is an avid and accomplished amateur photographer. When I was a young boy, he taught me how to operate a manual camera, skillfully interpret light and imaginatively compose an image. But more importantly, my dad instilled in me a sense of wonder and adventure; it is these traits that truly make me a photographer.
I once read that a camera is a great excuse to delve into a place deeper than we otherwise would. I like this description. Creating a special photograph forces us to look at our surroundings differently, to explore a place further, to look beyond the obvious and to hunt for something original and inspiring.
I call my photography style “Choose Your Own Adventure Photography”, after the books I used to read as a child. Literally and creatively, I can go one direction and discover a remarkable photographic opportunity; or I can go another direction and find something entirely different. It is this adventure that is the beauty of photography for me.
I love to photograph people: to capture real emotion and tell a story in a single frame. Whether I am creating fashion, reportage, lifestyle or commercial imagery, my narrative approach to photography is original and compelling and draws the viewer in. My unique and sensitive style has resulted in me being honoured by Luerzer’s Archive as one of the “200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide” and selected by Nikon as “One of Asia’s Finest Photographers”.
I am a Nikon Professional Photographer, a SanDisk Extreme Teammember and a Getty Images Global Assignment Photographer.
