Thomas Phoon (Malaysia)

I am a professional Documentary and Travel Photographer. FUJIFILM X-Photographer from Malaysia. I was photographing with FF 36MP DSLRs before encountering the FUJIFILM X Series camera system. In a friends gathering somewhere 2013, one of my friend shown me his work on a camera LCD display (an X-Pro1), asking me whether the picture quality of that camera is as good as my 36MP DSLR, when I look at those images, it is surprisingly good and comparable with the camera system that I used.

Then I bought a X-Pro1 with XF35mmF1.4 and XF14mmF2.8. The purpose of this purchase was for street shoot or light travel, but eventually I found that with this retro look and small camera, people tends not to avoid from me to shooting them. They act naturally and I am able to capture more precious moments when they are not hiding or running away from like those big arsenals that I used. This is the camera that I wanted to have for my kind of photography, shooting human interest that able to get closer to my subject where still having their natural action and expression.
I am fully confidence with FUJIFILM X Series and photographing with the latest gear now
