Fashion, advertising and commercial photographer Michael Teo

About me

I am a passionate fashion, advertising and portrait photographer. Though my father was an avid amateur photographer and painter, I was educated as a classical musician and only picked up photography later in life. I have had a lot of guidance from many great photographers who were generous enough to share their experience with me. My love for the art is always developing.

My greatest skills are in getting the best out of people, making them feel comfortable and relaxed in front of my camera so they can truly be themselves. I love meeting and working with other passionate creatives and fulfilling a vision.

For more information on my work or to just say hello, feel free to get in touch.
