Hi, I am a full time photographer. My studio is based in Osaka City centre, though I frequently travel around Japan for photo assignments. I was born and grew up in Penang, Malaysia. Now I’ve been living in Japan for 11 years. My editorials, photos and documentary video have been featured in several magazines and websites including: BBC News, Kansai News, Tokyo Camera Clubs, and many more. I not only shoot in and around the streets of the city, but also in shops, museums, restaurants, parks - anywhere and everywhere my clients feel happy, whether they're families, couples, or commercial. Finding places that make people feel happy, as well as creating memories while we shoot, is what makes our time together fun. And that is what makes for great photos!
