Photography is truly a never-ending journey of discovery as there are so many new things to shoot and learn about which keeps me constantly fascinated! It has also made me more observant of the people and surroundings around me as there is an endless source of inspiration around us. In fact, it never fails to amaze me that I am able to capture a moment in time and have it preserved for years to come. Taking photos allows you to have a visual diary of your life and of the people you’ve met and the places you’ve been to.
A great example is the photo above which I took in Shanghai. I was travelling alone on that particular day and walking along an empty alley where I saw these two boys. Within a split second, the elder boy carried the younger boy and walked away with smiles on their faces, laughing as they enjoyed each other’s company. I was lucky enough to have my camera with me and was able to snap a few photos that depicted the essence of a warm childhood. Sometimes, you really never know when you will chance upon moments like these!
All in all, I am definitely trying to evolve as a photographer and to see how I am able to challenge myself with new photo assignments. As part of my journey, I finally decided that it was time for me to have a new website where I can share my photos and stories in an even more enhanced manner. I have to say that I’m pretty excited about it! Having this website will definitely provide me with even greater control and convenience in reaching out to more photo enthusiasts.

I would also like to thank all my friends and family who trusted me to take their photos at the beginning of my journey! Thanks again for all your support!
