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!

First of all Boon really took care of me and of the experience I gained was awesome. He is a very interesting companion, gentle and professional he helped to enjoy the photoshooting. I had a lot of fun. Photos he took are so good and various, I can't help but to enjoy them. These are really good memories. By chance I would definitely look for another photoshooting with him. I highly recommend Boon as a photographer!

Boon was an expert in his craft and true professional. He made us feel welcome from the start and showed up on time. He knew the best spots to go to capture that special moment. The photos came out incredible. I’m so happy we braved the chilly weather and did this experience. It’s so much better than trying to capture it ourselves. One thing I really appreciated is the direction he gave. Thank you again.

I went through a lot of the other photographers offering services around Kyoto and found Lim's photo to be the most cinematic and interesting so decided to go with him. He was great and the photos came out fantastic. We took photos in Kyoto and he knew all the right spots for the shots. We went during Fall so it was really busy, but he was still able to pull off shots where we looked like we were the only ones there.
