Get To Know More About Me:

I’m a self-taught photographer based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and was born in Lazi, Siquijor, Philippines.

My biggest influence in photography was my Father. He does photography for a living and I love to watch him do his gigs on events and parties.
Started to learn the basic concepts and theories in photography 2 years before I actually had my own DSLR camera. I practiced with my point and shoot Sony camera.
So by the time I had my Nikon DSLR, it was just so easy to learn through the ins and out of the camera and using it because I had a background of the basics in photography

I started photographing my friends and I became more obsessed with photography. So I explored more about the other types of photography. Among those, what I really liked the most is photographing portraits of people and events. I like to capture a moment that is something memorable in which people still want to see it after 10 years and beyond.
Most of my works are in pre-wedding and I love doing it. I love to plan a shoot and executing it accordingly. While there are instances that it doesn’t always go as planned, solving problems is also part of a photographer’s life and I am very much in for problem-solving when it comes to a planned photo shoot.
I had to admit, photo shoots which I plan and execute won’t be successful If I was alone. That is why I have a team that I gather and be part of my plan.
I’m a team player and I value the power of working as a team as well as individually if needed.
I have my go-to guys for makeup, light assistants and videographers that are all part of one photography and video team to make sure everything is covered.

I get booked for weddings, pre-wedding and any other events over the weekend and when I don’t have one, I spend the weekends shooting with my photography buddies.
It’s what keeps me more passionate about what I do.

Photography has helped me meet new friends with the same interest and learn more.
For me, learning is something you don’t stop doing so I make sure I keep myself updated on what is going on in terms of hardware and other kinds of stuff in the photography industry in general.
It’s worth noting that I constantly learn new things related to my industry to make sure my skills are at par to what is current.
