Founder/ Principal Photographer - Ng Ken Liong


Having started photography back in 1993, Ken Liong has served as journalist, lecturer, artist, judge and club advisor. He is a recipient of multiple awards (recently nominated for Spirit of Enterprise Awards 2011), exhibitions, press and television appearances. 
When barely 19 years old, he was sponsored and commissioned by the Japanese Government to photograph the paradise islands of Okinawa. Thanks to Bill Clinton, he missed a meeting with the Okinawa governor, but a decade later, he ended up being Hillary Clinton's personal photographer during her week-long APEC meetings in Singapore. As part of his work in Asia, Ken Liong has rubbed shoulders with many heads of states, corporate bosses and celebrities.

A self-taught photographer, Ken Liong's background is a bachelor degree in computer engineering from NTU, with a minor in graphics imaging. He started off with events photography, but later found greater success by extending into higher value-added areas such as industrial, interior, architecture, etc, and also serving more diverse clients worldwide.

When not with a camera, Ken Liong enjoys analyzing financial statements as a value investor with a long track record. Seldom found without a book, Ken Liong is a lifelong student of world economics, history and social sciences. Weekends and nights are strictly reserved for playing with his two young sons.
