About Photographer:

Born in 1981 and grew up in Hong Kong, Tim Wong studied in England and graduated from the BA (Hons) Film and Video course at London College of Communication, University of the Arts London. Despite his continuous passion for photography, he embraced and established his career in the world of narratives, the movies industry, before his graduation, working as production assistant and script reader for Columbia Pictures Asia, MTV, and Shaw Brothers. Back in Hong Kong in 2004, he apprenticed and worked for the renowned director Wong Kar-Wai, during which his skills and visual styles were developed. He started creating his own work in late 2006. Notably, he shot two Nike video commercials with Fruit Chan, an award-winning director from Hong Kong. He also shot film stills for Ann Hui’s award winning movie "The Way We Are". His constant strive to challenge the conventional notion of boundaries in different genres of work resulted in the launch of Sykes Picture House in late 2007. The obsessive detailing, thoughtful manipulation of lighting, bold composition, together with his cinematic background have quickly won the trust of many well established individuals, agencies and brands, from Joyce Boutique, M&C Saatchi, Nike, Swire Properties, to Yip’s Chemical. Always experimenting with the employment of cinematic elements on narrative photography, his recent endeavor in fine art is his attempt to combine the two in a context liberated from the usual commercial constraints. Spanning from fine art, advertising, portraiture, to wedding, Tim aspires to be one of the most innovative young new forces to contribute to the creative field. He is currently based in Hong Kong.
