Information about my photography
Colors and emotions are what drives my passion for photography. Adapting a quote from the person who inspired me and persevere in this field, Mr Manny Librodo, one of the world’s most famous photographers , “Portrait is a landscape of emotions”. These emotions are what flows through the soul and outlines vivid colours that create the fascinating landscape of emotions that is captured through the lens of the camera..

Achievements in work
I’ve conducted countless photo shoot events and photography workshops over the last 2 years. I organized most of these events with the help of many world renowned photographers like Manny Librodo of the Philippines and Kenvin Pinardy of Indonesia. With their guidance, I learned how to conceptualize themes and often times even went so far as to create the styling and the outfits myself, just to be able to capture the emotions I needed to make each resulting photo speak a thousand words.
My works have been featured in such publications as Digital SLR Photography Magazine – Malaysia I’ve also had the honour of being chosen as one of the 39 best photographers of 2011 by Photomalaysia.com and have been exhibited my work in Nikon Centre, Malaysia.
My photo collection had also been accorded the honour of being exhibited alongside those from other more established world-class photographers from Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Myanmar, the Philippines, Scotland, and many others during the first ever Guerrilla Photography Exhibition organized by Photosafari.com and Photomalaysia.com at Avenue-K Mall located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Inspiration to become a photographer
It all started with a simple hobby to capture great moments shared with family and friends using ordinary ‘point-and-shoot’ cameras. After coming to work in Malaysia, I got introduced to my very first DSLR camera, and journey through the wonderful world of photography really kicked off from there.
At first, I only did landscape and street photography until that day I came across a Manny Librodo’s work – a great portrait shoot that captured my imagination. From that point on, I started experimenting and exploring, all in the name of capturing Manny’s iconic photographic style. Meeting the man himself only made me even more committed to his style of processing my photos that convey messages to the audience and not just images.
