As the name of this site suggests, my name is Chong Yee. I am a visual artist, an observer of life, and a visual storyteller.
Since young I cultivated the passion for the visual, whether it being in painting or photography. At 4 years old, I was sent to art class where I learned the fundamentals of beauty, and ever since art has been a significant part of my life.
Believe it or not, I am actually colorblind. But this has never stopped me, and on the contrary, this little ‘defect’ of mine has actually made me more sensitive to details over the years. It made me pay more attention to colors and how they correlate to one another, which was a big part of producing some of my best work to date.
Traveling is also in my blood. I am obsessed with exploring and experiencing new places, people and cultures. There’s this odd satisfaction that I get from observing people, things and details to things around me. Pair this with my passion for the arts, joining this industry was a no-brainer for me.
Yes, you read that right, film. While there are definite advantages with digital, sometimes it is still best to do things the old-fashioned way, especially when it comes to the business of nostalgia. There’s something about capturing moments on physical film, as if having an exact copy of the moment, that has all the details locked in, making the moment so surreal.
Your wedding marks a significant chapter of your life and it would be my honor and pleasure to be a part of it. I don’t bite ;). I’m a very friendly guy. We’ll get along really well. Throw in a little bit of whiskey in this mix and I’ll take your photographs out of this world.
