My interest in photography started when I was a teenager. I started shooting with any cameras I could lay my hands on – including a compact film camera and camera handphone. My first DSLR camera was a Nikon D60 kit, bought in 2007. Since then, I’ve been taking pictures avidly every weekend. I’m currently using a Canon 1D Mark IV. I’m currently the contributing photographer for Hypertune Magazine and Shift Magazine.

 

As a full-time lecturer in KDU University College, I’m deeply committed to the education of future generations. I spend much of my time giving presentations on photography, marketing and business. I’m also the advisor for Lights@KDU, the university college’s own photography club. My favourite quotes to students? “I don’t care what camera you use, as long as you show me good pictures”. “That’s not the camera’s problem, that’s a user problem.”

 

I’m interested in motorsports photography, portrait photography, event photography, fashion photography and product photography. I’ve done shots at many functions, including the Terry Fox Run 2009, Bon Odori 2010, Fashion on 1 2009, 2010, 2011, and the KL Photography Festival (KLPF) 2010, 2011. I was also one of the official photographers at Malaysian Super Series 2011, Malaysia Merdeka Endurance Race 2011, 2012, Asian Festival of Speed 2011, and MotoGP 2011, 2012 at the Sepang International Circuit.
