More about Kim N....
What do you love about your job?
Since I was trained as a concert photographer, I love capturing what normal people (audience/viewers) couldn’t, like for example, the artist being immersed in lights, the artists raw emotions, their guitar riffs, their head bangs but at the same time, I want people who weren't there feel like they were there. For corporate events I love how the pictures are considered as milestones in some people's lives/careers, in portraits, I love how most of them feel like "they're at their most beautiful." - Their reactions are priceless to me, just making them feel good about themselves keeps me going.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done so many events/concerts around the philippines, even if it's the same band/artist, what made them special was the people around them, it's always different, the crowd's reaction is always different so you have to capture their eyes that is filled with pure joy.
I also experienced a surprise engagement shoot, I had to hide behind a tree there were ants everywhere! I had to be incognito, but those 15 minutes was priceless when I saw the soon-to-be bride's reaction.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I wish I have! Maybe soon? Maybe touring around the Philippines 3-5x a week while studying in college is a recognition.
A fun fact about this photographer
I'm 4'll and I think this is one of the reasons why a lot of bands/girl groups hire me, I look innocent and they can stuff me in cars/vans because I will always fit haha
