Shui Sim (シュイ シム)
Hello there! My name is Shui and I'm a photographer currently based in Milton, Ontario, Canada. I'm a third-generation Malaysian Chinese who grew up on Borneo Island in a city called Kuching. In the Malay language, "Kuching" sounds like the word "Kucing" which means "cat". So, it's often called the "Cat City"... even though we only have the average number of cats!
Besides my hometown, I used to live in Glasgow, Scotland and Tokyo, Japan. Scotland was beautiful and Japan was crazy! I am excited to make Canada my new home.
Why I love doing what I do:
I got my first camera before I left for Glasgow in 2011. But photography only became a big part of me when I moved to Japan in 2016. l started taking photos of my travels there and moved onto doing relaxed and intimate family/couple travel photos. Eventually, I dived into creating conscious content for an array of small businesses and purposes. Through the influences of other artists I met in Japan, my style developed into more emotive imagery that invokes a feeling of exploration, intimacy, and honesty. I am excited to work with people and brands to create something everyone's proud of.
