I coined the phrase Shutter Therapy – which means go out and have fun shooting. Photography is often fundamentally a personal pursuit and the photographer should strive to prioritise what he/she wants to do instead of following the trends of popular photography. Photography can be fun, fulfilling and at the same time therapeutic to the soul, an escape from everyday stress and a break from the never-ending daily life routines. Practising photography as a lifestyle changes the way we see things around us and gives us a powerful medium to express ourselves and tell stories. Shutter therapy is free for everyone.
Robin Wong believes that photography is a lifestyle and a personal creative expression. He discovered photography at the start of a civil engineering career, as an artistic balance against an overwhelmingly technical world. He runs a photography blog (robinwong.blogspot.com) penning down random photography musings to camera reviews, unexpectedly gaining audience along the way. The blog was awarded the world’s Top 100 Camera Blogs in 2019. Robin was particularly known for adopting a less technical approach for product review articles and focusing more on user experience and photography heavy approach instead. Robin has left his career in engineering to be a professional photographer, currently shooting commercially and doing personal projects. Robin’s on-going mission is to spread the love and joy of photography, inspire more people to go out and shoot, and to motivate everyone to grow in photography.
