A Malaysian Hibernate in Canada
I am Rui, and I grew up in a small town in Malaysia. I studied Genetics at university but later in life, I found my passion in photography.
At first, I borrowed a small digital camera from my sister and I always bring it everywhere. I always view things through the lens, I keep capturing everything and keep deleting them to free up memory. There is no online platform to show photos, it is pure passion and passion and passion in photography. I slowly realize I enjoy seeing photos that show the natural and authentic inner feelings of people.
6 years back, I decided to step out for my dream, I want to be a photographer who captures authentic emotions and creates a lovely story in photographs.
I recently moved to Canada. Before my move, I worked as a freelance photographer providing services for pre-weddings/engagements, elopements, weddings, corporate/ personal events, portraits, real estate, and product shoots for clients from different countries.
Now, that I am in this new country, I found myself very lucky to be surrounded by so many lovely couples and people who appreciate my work and are willing to give me a chance to witness their biggest day through my lens. I am excited and looking forward to being your photographer and playing a part in your special day.
They say that when your heart starts beating crazy when you stutter and feel butterflies... it's love, and that’s exactly what a great photo makes me feel. Amazing photos are always an inspiration and something I yearn to live up to. My passion lies in photography, and I always give my best to it. I love to connect with people through my lens, capturing their subtle emotions and telling their stories through pictures.
What I enjoy the most is photographing people and moments as they are. I don't like staging awkward shots or forcing cheesy expressions. I certainly give direction, but I want to capture people naturally and relaxed. I believe when you look at a photograph, you should be able not only to see it but feel its emotions.
I really appreciate the opportunities I get as your photographer to witness and share your lovely moments through my eyes and lenses.
