Give us an introduction on who you are and what you do. 

I am a Hong Kong born Melbourne based photographer & filmmaker who focuses on fashion, portraiture and documentary photography. 

In what ways does music and sound play a role in your creative process? 

I think music and sound helps me develop visuals for both personal and commissioned projects, whether it’s motion or photography. I really believe everyone in life is a dancer of their own, you just need to find the right music and you can really make something turnt up for the lens. I also really enjoy walking around listening to music while travelling to different countries to photograph daily lives and moments.

How do you create a space in which you feel inspired?

I don’t like to sit still, so I need a space that allows me to live and work in a flexible way. 

Who are you listening to at the moment?

Tell us about your favourite moment with your Nuraphone. 

I remember a special moment at the very start of our harsh Melbourne lock down — I was really missing going to live gigs so I used my Nuraphone to listen to a summer mix Shlohmo did for Sneeze Magazine and a live set by The Blaze on YouTube. I felt like I was at a live gig and a party again. It was a very nice experience.
