Hi, I am a full time photographer. My studio is based in Osaka City centre, though I frequently travel around Japan for photo assignments. I was born and grew up in Penang, Malaysia. Now I’ve been living in Japan for 11 years. My editorials, photos and documentary video have been featured in several magazines and websites including: BBC News, Kansai News, Tokyo Camera Clubs, and many more.

I not only shoot in and around the streets of the city, but also in shops, museums, restaurants, parks - anywhere and everywhere my clients feel happy, whether they're families, couples, or commercial. Finding places that make people feel happy, as well as creating memories while we shoot, is what makes our time together fun. And that is what makes for great photos!

如果你只是想发一张朋友圈的人像,其实自拍就可以,但是,如果你想通过旅拍,更好地去观看这座城市,观看自己,那么Boon Cheng的摄影将会是一次温暖的体验。 日本人的边界感很强,Boon Cheng的摄影可以像一个多年未见的朋友令旅程充满人情味; 日本建筑干净、典雅,Boon Chen人潮的摄影可以像一个邻家哥哥一样引导你与城市的光影、线条对话; 大和民族是一个暧昧的民族,面对涌动的游客与纷繁的景点,Boon Cheng可以凭借Phd的思维模式与居住日本🇯🇵十一年的丰富经验,闹中取静,陪伴你,耐心地观察这个国家,“观自在”。 与Boon Chen告别时恋恋不舍,这段旅拍教我更好地明白,生命在于体验,这也是我们相遇的理由。 期待下一次会面! 真心推荐每一位有缘的朋友,加入到Boon Chen的旅拍体验中来❤️
