I am a Landscape+Lifestyle Photographer

Feel free to check out my website



A little background on myself, and how I came about plunging into this creative abyss called photography. I am currently based in Portland, Oregon, and I earn my keep as a process engineer (yawns!).


My interest in photography started in college, when I joined the UCLA Student Media. That was when I had the opportunity to shoot a diverse range of subjects- portraits, studio, food, sports, and landscape. However, landscape photography soon became an obsession of mine after I moved to the Pacific Northwest, which is arguably one of the most awesome landscape destinations around. Growing up in Singapore and having spent a major part of my life in cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and Hong Kong, the concept of nature barely existed in my world before moving here to the PNW. Here in the upper left side of USA, a rich tapestry of landscape scenes is an hour’s drive away or so - the coast, the mountains and the gorge! These picturesque places are in my backyard, so to speak, and that is how I fell deeper into landscape photography- I guess there is just no escaping it! Personally, I find places most appealing when shot from higher vantage points at sunrise and sunsets, so I am always chasing the light. I am also a huge fan of waterfalls; there is something so graceful about water tumbling down over a precipice. Even though I have lived here for almost 2 years, I don’t think I will ever run out of subjects to photograph. There is just so much to discover! Whenever I am not working, you can definitely find me out there exploring what Mother Nature has to offer :)


I hope you enjoy looking at my galleries- if they did not manage to amaze you, I hope that they at least entertained you a bit! The view at many of these places is just so breathtaking that photos don’t do them 100% justice. But I try my best to capture what I see so that I can share nature’s beauty with everyone. I am always open to comments, suggestions and whatnot, so please feel free to drop me a message.
