SPOTLIGHT

TIM WONG

Working with some of Hong Kong's most noted auteurs, Tim Wong discovered his love for photography working alongside mega stars such as Wong Kar wai. Tim’s career in film and videography began shortly after graduating with a film and video degree from the University of the Arts London. Upon his return to Hong Kong in 2003, he started working as a production assistant and script reader for Columbia Pictures Asia, MTV, and Shaw Brothers and apprenticed under the wing of renowned directors Wong Kar-wai and Fruit Chan. He got into photo-shooting in 2006 with TV commercials by Fruit Chan and later shooting film stills for Ann Hui ‘s award-winning movie The Way We Are, among other notable titles. His attention to detail, thoughtful manipulation of lighting, bold composition, together with his cinematic background have quickly won the trust of many well established individuals in the industry as well as agencies and brands. Above all, Tim loves to shoot people and admits that he picks up a camera for the things and people that capture his eye and that he finds interesting. To Tim, “Photography has the ability to be immediate—it allows you to communicate with the protagonists in a way no other media can; it allows you to cross boundaries when you create; it can potentially reach a huge crowd from very different backgrounds, hence [its] ability to be very influential.’ Tim finds inspiration in the world around him, particularly by people, music, paintings, colors and architecture. Never willing to conform, he’s always experimenting and pushing the traditional boundaries of photography. www.wongtim.com
