Your best moment of the day?
Waking up every morning knowing that I am actually doing what i love for a living.
Any music you listen to at the moment?
I am currently more into pop music such as Katy Perry, Lenka, Little Boots, and Lily Allen. Also a bit of hip hop and R n' B, such as T.I., Justin Timberlake, N.E.R.D., Timbaland, and Missy Elliot. Other than that, my all time favourite would be hardcore and metal. My all time favourite artist/band would be Incubus. Their words and music are so unique that it can give thousands of meanings.
Do you read design / photography magazines?
Yes, i do read a few photography magazines. But the one that I read most is Digital Camera. I also read fashion and design magazines. Actually, I am very into art. Any form would certainly attract my attention..
Do you follow any blog or particular website?
I love Deviantart. I get a lot of perspectives on various arts, which to me, is very fun and interesting. Plus, it actually has almost everything you basically need to know about your favourite art. You can look up on popular artworks, tutorials, and digital resources.
do you avoid wearing any cloth?
I try to avoid the typical look that most people currently wear. I try to stand out, but not too much. I also like to experiment with my appearance, but surely there are times when it didn't go quite well as planned.
did you study photography? Where?
I got exposed to photography at my first workplace, a local photo studio in Kelantan. I learned the basics from my employer and collegues. From there, I develop myself by learning from friends who share same interest in photography, and also from online resources.
Describe your style?
Weird at times, but fashionable. I choose to be different.
Please describe your work from your first projects to today.
My work style has been evolutionizing from time to time. I don't have some sort of a trademark or specific style in presenting my artwork. I prefer to learn, experiment, and develop a new and unique presentation from time to time. To me, art is about expressions that has no limit.
So I figured, why should I stop at one point?
Who would you like to do photography for?
I wish to have my perspectives to be seen and understood by everyone. I try to learn and do every type of photography there is. Photography, like any other form of art, is a medium to communicate with others, in expressing ones thoughts or feelings. If my artwork cannot be understood, therefore I fail the purpose of its existence. To achieve its purpose, I improve myself.
Is there any photographer/designer who has influenced you?
There are many photographers that I love their work, and really influenced me in my work, because I take interest on every type of photography. For example of local photographers, I respect the evolution in todays photography trend in Malaysia made by Saiful Nang of
Candid Syndrome. I also like the radical presentation in photography made by Kuku Besi. For photojournalism, I love the work of Bazuki Muhammad from Reuters.
Do you discuss with other photographer?
Yes, especially when I'm doing a project that I am not quite familiar with. This is to gather info or guidelines based on others experiences.
What are you afraid of regarding the future?
The decreasing value of true artwork. I really hope that in future, the value of an artwork will not be scaled by majority votes, but rather based on what the artwork itself has to say.
What do u think of photography in KB especially?
People is getting more exposed to the artistic side of photography rather than just looking at it as an image recording method. It is getting more exciting nowadays because of the growing numbers of people that are interested in photography, and also the rise of a whole new trend in photography. This is maybe because of the developing technologies in photography, which makes it a lot easier for people to learn photography. However, there are also among these enthusiasts, who choose photography just for the money..which to me, is like a prostitution in photography.
