1. What is life to you? What it should be?
For me, life is an experience for you to keep on try everything. For you to do what you like, along with what you don’t like. Some people say, if you live life as an experience, there is no limits to what you may be able to achieve.
2. There are a lot of professions out there – why be a photographer?
It is all about my passion in photography and I wanted to sharing my vision with others.
3. How much is your family an influence on the way you view life, see things?
A lot. They keep on supporting me to go deep.
4. What is your favourite non-photography pass time?
Doodle or draw comics since I love to draw and express my feeling on paper 😀
5. What do you like to eat?
Any Halal Food.
6. Is/Are there any project(s) you wish you could do – or might do?
I wish I would do some travel photo because I love to see and capture different view, people and culture.
7. Is there a big difference between your personal work and commissioned work?
I put far more of myself into personal work. It’s an opportunity to experiment without wasting a client’s and others time or money, and express ideas without censorship or editing. I enjoy the commission work that I do now, but it still can’t beat the freedom of personal work.
8. Do you shoot with your left or right eye?
Right, sometimes left.
9. Are there any unseen experimental images in your attic you’d like to show us now?
If I have I won’t hesitate to show it.
10. If you were to start all over again, is there anything you would do differently? Why?
I’m very happy with my journey so far, so I would not think to make any changes. At the beginning of my photography career I keep on looking to someone that I can follow the style in photograph. But when I look back, I would rather keep on shooting and finding my own style and color, so people will remember my work. Everyone see things differently, so keep on shooting don’t bother with others.
