Roshan Menon, 24, Photographer
Tell us a little bit more about what you do.
Hey! I’m a fashion and portrait photographer based in Kuala Lumpur. Occassionally, I throw, tell jokes and a teh o ais junkie.
What’s the first thing that catches your eye about your date?
I think it has to be the way her hair is done, her eyes and what she’s not wearing on the date *wink*
Top three rules to getting the money shot?
I guess to me, it’s about capturing the emotion and story that I am trying to tell through my photos. The right expression and light explains perfectly what I am trying to capture. So most definitely, the top 3 would be the expression of the subject, the light and how the subject is styled.
If you had to choose to only photograph one thing for the rest of your life (landscape, portraits, food, etc), what would it be? Why?
I would have to be a photo I took on film while I was in Bali, the serene waves and the bird in the photo just described my experience in Bali perfectly.
What are your thoughts on being an “Instagram partner”?
Hey, if she wants beautiful photos of herself, she picked the right person then!
If you could buy any painting or art in this world, what would it be? Why?
The art of being original. We live in a day and age where everything is being imitated and re-created and originality is lacking.
If you could eradicate one thing in this world, what would it be? Why?
Nothing really. Every good and bad thing in this world contributes to the experience we have right now. So there would be nothing that I would eradicate.
