Shui Sim (シュイ シム)
Hello there! Nice to meet you! My name is Shui and I'm a photographer currently based in Milton, Ontario, Canada.
I'm a 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.
How it all started:
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 with the aim to invoke a feeling of exploration, intimacy, and honesty.
I offer a variety of photographic services including events, elopement and intimate weddings, corporate headshots, studio photography and everything in between.
