Dennis has always had a passion for photography since his college days. Flashback to many years after and he now owns his own studio by the name Den Studio registered under SSM. This time around, he gave us an insight into his works and what makes him strive to be the best.
Where did the passion for photography start?
Photography has always been a passion of mine since college but it only started out as a hobby. Until one day, some of my senior photographers got me into a photography assignment. After that, it kind of snowballed from then.
What kinds of pictures do you love to capture the most?
To me, capturing moments and candid pictures is what I always go for at most times. That is when it’s the most natural of feeling portrayed in the pictures that make it a more memorable and priceless expression for us. To me, these kinds of moments only happen once.
Favourite part of your work? Why?
Every photography assignment that I have is my favourite. There are no bad ones to me because my work is basically something that has turned into my love for photography. To answer your question, if I were to pick one favourite, it would have to be wedding photography. The reason why is due to the happiness that flows in a wedding and knowing that I captured someone else’s happiest day in their life makes me fulfilled about what I do. Hence, my passion.
Which is your favourite lens? Why?
Probably the 5mm because it is the standard prime lens. It’s also the longest lens that I’ve ever own. This particular lens helps to frame a picture at a fixed focal length as well as gets to standardize your visual.
What photography gears do you normally bring with you?
A Nikon camera body, Nikon lenses, Sigma lenses, and Tokina lenses.
Whose work has influenced you the most?
I don’t have a specific person but it rather the people around me. To the people I worked with and for, we learn from each other and consequently, it improve on my work and how I appreciate learning so much.
How do you educate yourself to take better pictures?
True passion and patience is the key to educating myself. There is no if’s or but’s about it. If you don’t love what you do, the word patience is definitely not there anymore.
What is your advice to future photographers?
Always love what you’re doing and remember to do what you love. Never give up on your dreams and to go through with life and career with love and passion.
