1. How did you get started in Photography?
It started about 4 years ago when I bought my first DSLR(Nikon D90) after much encouragement from a buddy to whom I'm extremely grateful to, for introducing me to the world of photography. I soon realised that I couldn't stop thinking about photography, and what began as a hobby quickly became a passion.

2. What range and models of equipment do you use?
Camera Bodies: D700, D90, FM10.
Lenses: Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8G, Nikkor 50mm 1.4D, Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8G, Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8G.
Entry level studio strobes and a small assortment of light modifiers.

3. What is your favourite subject(s)?
At this point, I don't think I have one as there' still so much to learn and discover with regards to the various subjects out there that I'd be equally excited about the prospect of shooting an unknown beach as opposed to say, a mother and her newborn child. If I really had to name a few, it'd be landscape/architecture, people and abstract, in no particular order.

4. How did you know about Nikon Club Malaysia?
I came across Nikon Club by chance while browsing the web.

6.  Do you have a favourite place for your photography?
I like it best when it's a totally new and foreign environment. Studying and learning it makes up half the fun.

7.  What do you like most about photography?
The freedom to express the way in which we interpret the world, by first understanding what we see, and then redefining it by capturing it in a way which is unique to every photographer. There are no limits to the number of good pictures one person can produce, or the methods and angles in which these pictures are captured. That in its own is an endless source of motivation.
