There are times when one can see details in a way that others simply can’t. In photography, anyone can own the same equipment, but not all have the ability to use the gear or harness it features with the utmost creativity for outcomes that can move others. On that note, inspiration may come from anywhere, but for photographers Faris Fakri, Razlan Yusof, Jeremy Lai and Izuddin Helmi, the different perspectives and vantage points (literally) elevate their photography and travel snaps to newer heights.
#TeamCLEO talked to them to learn about their beginnings, what it takes to get that shot, and how creativity takes them places.
What initially wasn’t his forte quickly turned around when Razlan discovered his father’s old camera. ”Ever since then, I took the camera with me everytime I left the house — I was always snapping photos on the go.”
Razlan encourages budding photographers to explore and get lost in a place. “Photography is the only tool that can actually freeze time and capture those moments you’re fond of, immortalising them forever. If it’s something that I like or intrigues me, I’ll be sure to photograph it.”
