My singular focus of photography is portraiture, and it has been for nearly two decades.
I started photography with a LOMO LCA as a freshman. As an avid movie-watcher, I took to photography like a duck to water. After all, what is a movie if not a series of photographs? At 25 frames per second, and the average movie running 90 mins, you would have seen a million photographs when you watch 5-7 movies. Which would mean that I’ve seen more than a billion photos from all the movie’s I’ve watched, many composed by master videographers.
I took classes in University of Pennsylvania and was part of the 2003 pioneer class of Shooting Home by Objectifs to find new avenues of growth as a portrait photographer.
I relish the challenge and complexity of taking an authentic portrait of accomplished and interesting individuals.
Instead of over-engineering a good-looking photo of a person by choosing a theme, location, clothes and props that don't reflect who the portrait-sitter is, I try to get the most authentic and genuine portrait I can get of my subject. This requires that I have some level of connection and comfort with the subject, and vice versa.
I now live in Singapore and hope to continue meeting and taking portraits of individuals here and in my travels.
Please do contact me via this website or send me a message on my Facebook Page if you'd like to get your portrait taken today.
