Once I was an art director.
In 2011 my friend Gary said: You’re on vacation? Come and shoot my wedding in North Carolina bro.
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. No, thrice. Four times now.
My primary school friend from Klang, high school friends in Singapore, 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 jargon.
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 do things that you won’t normally do.
I believe if you’re comfortable and happy, then you’ll look comfortable and happy.
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 $2000; packages with fine art album $3850.
I look forward to working with you.
