About Paul Chong Photographer


Photographer Paul Chong  


Award winning photographer Paul Chong celebrates the beauty of life through pictures. He started photography since 2001 while spending much of his time in the outdoor to create art. He was inspired to take photograph after attending one of his photography classes back as a university student. During which also he first bought a Rollei compact film camera. This provides him a greater freedom later in his life to continue the pursuit of creating landscape and outdoor photography. Paul was born in Malaysia and currently lives in Shanghai with his family.

Light and subject are inseparable. But when they are well integrated, they become a fine masterpiece.” -Paul Chong
