Wai Teik adopts a holistic approach to the creative process, possessing the uncanny ability to visualise how every aspect of the photo shoot comes into play. The creative visionary in Wai Teik renders value added-ness to every assignment he undertakes, resulting in high concept-driven fashion imagery.

Aspire to Inspire
Chasing aspirations is what he has been doing all his life and Wai Teik aspires to challenge others to do the same. He spoke at seminars and forums, inspiring others to continue pursuing their passions for fashion photography. Also a lens man with a heart that cares, some of the proceeds from various forums and art shows he participated in go to helping the less fortunate in the society.
Passion, Determination and Dedication Personified

Especially in the face of daunting challenges and detractors, winning several bodybuilding championships testify of his passion, determination and perseverance toward transforming his dreams to reality. These underlying principles are indeed a stark reflection of Wai Teik’s passion in creating fine fashion imagery for the enjoyment of all.
