I used to feel like a cheat – calling myself a photographer, as I never received proper training from a school nor a course.
You see, once I was an art director.
In 2011 my friend Gary suggested: You’re on vacation? Come and shoot my wedding in North Carolina.
Since then I’d shot weddings across Australia:
MONA in Tasmania, the Melbourne NGV, The Rocks in Sydney, a wildlife reserve in Newcastle.
I even took a cruise ship to Hayman Island.
I remember the one with crazy hats in Belgrave.
I’d shot a wedding in Japan. Twice.
My high school friends in Singapore, my college friend in Kuala Lumpur, they trusted me too.
Not formally educated as a photographer, I realised, set me apart.
I won’t bore you with my philosophy, my cameras, my ‘storytelling’, or other marketing jargons.
Just this: I shoot with the past and future in mind.
I have no interest in making you look like you’re on a magazine cover, or you do things that you won’t normally do.
Looking pretty is important, but not as important as looking happy enjoying your day.
As your photographer, my job description is to document how far you’ve come, hand-in-hand, to one exact moment in life.
I freeze frame those moments, for you, for your family, to look back in fifteen, fifty, seventy years’ time.
Basically, I make time capsules.
If you think my work speaks to you, please get in touch using the contact form.
If you agree that a photo printed is worth much more than three thousand in a hard drive, please, let’s be friends.
Let’s talk about that memory that will go up on your wall.
My bare coverage starts from $2500; packages with fine art album $4000.
I work alone, no entourage, on a first-come-first-serve basis.
