Shui Sim (シュイ シム)
Hello there! Please call me, Shui. I'm currently based in Tokyo, Japan. Here's a quick Q&A for you.
Why I love doing what I do:
At first, I won't lie, it was just about pretty pictures. Then, it became a lot more when I learned how to use and manipulate light to create stories/concepts/memories. I want my images to evoke emotions in people who look at them. My focus when I photograph is on communicating a spectrum of feelings. I strive to photograph in my most honest and artful way. I find that a lot of the things I enjoy and value in life include people. That's why I believe photos should connect us as humans, and that is what I aim for.
How did I get started in photography:
I started my photographic journey when I came to Japan in the summer of 2016. I learned the craft through my viewfinder and not long after, this became my creative outlet. I was hooked on the high I got from self-development and seeing people looking at the images I took, retelling their interpretation or recollection of that moment in time. It was exhilarating and motivating. I'm grateful as a photographer and am constantly working on bettering my skills and my work for my future clients.
If this speaks to you, I'd love to hear from you!
