As a self-taught photographer, I combine my interests in visual arts with my technical background to create photographic artworks - creating fine art pieces suited to residential or commercial interiors, publishing travel and art photo books, and providing architectural photography for building owners and designers.

 

My fine art pieces, photographed both in cities and in nature, capture the beauty of simple wonders that surround us. A common theme throughout my fine art portfolio is that of simplicity and minimalism. Such images encourage viewers to reflect on the subject and gain a deeper appreciation of its beauty. Through my photography, I want to inspire viewers to slow down and enjoy the visual poetry in our world. In the busyness of life, with increasing complexities, it’s important that we find quiet moments to connect with our inner world, and retreat to a place of zen to reset our balance. By sharing my vision of the visual harmony in our world, I hope to bring a sense of zen and peace into your living or work space. Having these art pieces on your home or office walls can serve as reminders to respect our world, to cherish the beauty in the ordinary and be a place of focus for mindful reflections.

 

For my commercial architecture photography, I apply my understanding of construction and structures gained from working in the structural engineering industry. Collaborations with architects and interior designers have given me an appreciation of how to best capture building exteriors and features, along with interior spaces and details. My architectural photography has been featured on corporate websites, in marketing collateral and in publications. Through my architectural photography, I portray buildings and their interior spaces in the best light and most flattering angles.

 

My photographic and post-processing techniques are chosen to suit the subject matter or mood to be conveyed with each image. Print media and framing options are selected based on the image style, along with my clients' personal preferences and their home or office decor. Smaller print sizes of my artwork can be ordered via the online shopping cart. For larger or customized print sizes and print medium, or to order my photo books, please contact me through the online Contact form or email me at [email protected]. For your commercial architectural photography projects or to commission artwork for a space, please reach me to discuss.
