In following his photography dreams, he came to work with Olympus over 12 years ago to which he has worked all around Asia Pacific. Since then, he's built a reputation not only as an accomplished photographer working with the likes of Elle & Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, GQ and Delicious magazine in Asia Pacific, amongst others, but also as an enthusiastic and knowledgeable instructor for all photographic abilities.
