Here is a little bit story about us
I believe, Earth without art is Eh.
Born in Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia in 1983 and was growing up in Benut, Pontian, Johor. Now live in Kuala Lumpur since 2007 when I built a career as a Broadcast Engineer by profession. However, I do like arts very much since my childhood time.
I reckon myself as a Right-Brain person (love arts and creativity works), however I was growing up in a Left-Brain environment (study and work in technical & engineering system). Continued my study in Technic School in Batu Pahat for upper level of secondary School on Civil Engineering course.
Then, I pursuit my study to Kolej Mara Kulim, Kedah in matriculation before qualified to University Technology of Malaysia in Skudai, Johor Bahru on Degree in Engineering (Hons) Electric & Electronic major in Telecommunication.
When I was a young boy, I always represented my school for an arts and drawing competition. I participated in many drawing and colouring competition in some magazines. There were many times also I could see my drawing featured in some magazines and named as prize winners or some consolation prize winners. I was dreaming about to succeed in arts industry. However, my parents wanted me to pursuit my study in science and engineering, then I had to put aside all my interest to obey all their wishes. Such a good boy I am right? Hehe.
My interest in arts is still alive in my heart. Photography and art is just a hobby which I had left long time ago. One more thing that I remember when I was a young boy, I always amazed how beautiful the picture view that I could see from a landscape images shown on a calendar that hang over at the wall in my parent house. I set a dream that someday I would like to take a photo as beautiful as those picture that I saw.
In 2011, with a basic knowledge of operating a camera, I went to a Cameron Highland, just to take some photos as I remember that I saw from that calendar picture. When I checked all photos taken from the computer, I was very disappointed. It does not even close to the picture that I could imagine.
From that moment, I started looking for a photography class to learn how to handle all the unknown button and function in a camera. Then in May 2014, I joined for Basic Manual DSLR Classes event that had been held in Malacca.
Travelling is my pleasure and I love to do it at least once or twice in a year. It's refreshing to go to a new place and having a new adventure experience and going out of our daily routine in life.
In Sep 2014, I started to join a travelling trip where the first ever photography trip was to Guilin, China. The trip was together with a knowledge guided by some big person in Photography Industry. They were Shamshahrin Shamsudin, Syibli Fakih & Cikgu Ain.
A few months later, I was contacted by Nikon Asia where they were interested to purchased my photos that taken during my Guilin Trip. I was very excited. It never crossed in my mind that I could make money from my photography hobby. Since then, it trigger my passion higher and I started to be a little bit serious in photography.
Then, I can see a lot of enjoyment in photography when I got to know many more variety in genre available in photography such as portraiture, landscape, human interest, street photography and travel photography.
With a combination of these two passion in photography and travel, I created this website gallery with blog and I hope to share something useful to others about a journey through my lens.
Since then, I joined more classes in photography, to explore more about photography sector available in the market. I found that I am interested more in Travel, Human Interest, Landscape & Street Photography.
I was also expanding my knowledge by joining some course for videography and some production works. It really useful for me to add more value in my creativity artworks.
Nowadays, I do freelance Travel Photographer, Travel Planner, Tour Leader, & Videographer around the world. Tell me where you want your photo to be taken at, I will make a dream picture of your vacation become a reality.
It's my nick name, when I'm on photography duty.
