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.

Jeremy’s love for photography clicked when his father gave him a small point-and-shoot camera. ”I eventually fell in love with street, landscape and portrait photography. I believe they tell the best stories — from a random bystander’s expression to a crack in a building’s wall; everything has a story behind it worth telling.”

To aid in the story-telling, Jeremy suggests learning basic composition like the rule of thirds and the golden ratio, among others. ”Lighting is also important, as different lighting portrays different moods. That’s why sometimes I make an effort to go to places early, sometimes even before sunrise.”
