ABOUT ROBIN WONG


MY NAME IS ROBIN WONG
Photo by Jason Lioh

I am a photography enthusiast who believes that photography is a lifestyle and a personal creative expression. I discovered photography at the start of my civil engineering career, as an artistic balance to an overwhelmingly technical world. Through photography, I have found so much joy in the process of shooting and sharing my photography journey through my blog, robinwong.blogspot.com. My blog has eventually grown from random photography musings to photography reviews, unexpectedly gaining audience along the way. I have reviewed primarily Micro Four Thirds system cameras and lenses. I was particularly known for adopting a less technical approach in my product review articles and focusing more on user experience and photography heavy approach instead.

Subsequently I left my engineering career when I found an opportunity to utilize my photography skills that can contribute positively to a camera company business. I officially joined Olympus Malaysia as a product specialist, providing consultation on consumer photography behaviour; organizing consumer related activities and events and supported the sales and marketing team. During my time with Olympus, I have the privilege to work with several leaders and experts in the local photography industry, and have gained much knowledge and experience on overall imaging business in Malaysia.

I have left Olympus Malaysia to explore the world of photography without being tied to a single camera brand. With this newfound freedom, I want to spend more time doing what I love doing, shooting more photographs and write passionately about my photography.

I personally believe that having fun is the most important thing to do in photography. I have coined the phrase “shutter therapy” which simply means, having an enjoyable time doing a photo walk, either by yourself or with a small group of friends. The mission of my old blog was to spread the love and joy of photography, infect my readers with the passion to go out and shoot, and to motivate everyone to grow in photography.

Therefore, shooting is not only a job for me, but it is my genuine passion and I pour my heart and soul into each photograph that I take. Hit me up and let's have a conversation over a cup of coffee!

  1. For a Christian, I think your comment about "stroking tennis balls" is too sexually suggestive and needs to be rewritten. I don't think it fits with the level of godliness that we as Christians are called to.

  2. Anonymous,
    I would really appreciate if you can leave at least a name.
    The problem many Christians nowadays is trying to be too "godly", and by doing so, putting a mask of pretense in front of everyone, as if we have such high standards of holiness. This disgusts me.

    As for your comment on stroking balls, it is the TECHNICALLY CORRECT term used in tennis, accepted and agreed worldwide. You do not hit a tennis ball, you STROKE it.

  3. Very Interesting, Anonymous! You don´t tell not to stroke balls, you just suggest to rewrite the article...ts ts ts
    Go on doing what you like, Robin, great Blog, I love your photography!

  4. Robin,
    Your art declares the Glory of God and his handiwork. It is unfortunate that someone in the name of Christ can only see the comment about tennis balls in such a way as to feel it is not appropriate. Stoking a tennis ball, basketball, racquetball is a common phrase. Even my ungodly friends would not think of the tennis ball comment as suggestive in any way. It is unfortunate that a Christian would not put the best construction on everything as Martin Luther the great reformer instructs.

  7. Dear Robin,

    the arguments of the "Anonymous with no name" are simply rediculous and therefore just to ignore.

    I write this comment to thank you for your analysis of the new Olympus P3 and for sharing the pictures with us.

    Best regards
    Walter.

  9. Wow, some people are uptight! I read the stroking balls comment and chuckled! Some Christians need to lighten up!

    Great website Robin, keep it up!

  10. An innocent man wouldn't think too much about an innocent comment.
    Only distorted minded would view an innocent comment as vulgar. Christian or not.

    Self righteousness is another matter altogether.

  11. I think Anonymous has a problem.

    I don't think God has this problem.

    Always remember, without sex we all would not be here blogging.

    Best regards
