As a mechanical engineer by profession, his love for photography began simply in 1980 with his first SLR film camera. His obsession with photography lifted off with the investment of dark room film processing and print at home.
As the President of the Shashin Photography Club of Malaysia in 2000; his work was exhibited in various photography exhibition projects; and photography magazine. One of the major exhibition that featured his work was organized by the National Art Gallery Malaysia called “Wavelines - A Photography Journey in 2004”. Charitable by nature, he contributed his
photography services by capturing stunning images of performances at the Actors Studio and the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre for all their promotional needs. Simply put, when you see Allan’s work you know you’re dealing with someone who loves his Fine Art. Allan now shoots with his Pentax Medium Format DSLR Camera for all his work.
Allan spent his 30 years in Automotive industries and last 10 years in Shanghai as a Tooling Specialist for German automotive company. Upon his return to Malaysia, he opened his photography studio that offers specialist services in fine art photography, training and fine art printing.
