People, fashion, architecture,... the world is full of beautiful and interesting moments to capture.
Phyllis Wong is a photographer and retoucher based in Sydney. Her work in commercial photography specializes in fashion, performing arts, food, architecture and corporate portraiture. Phyllis has built a portfolio of work that explores functionality and aesthetic details in different visual styles, and a wide variety of subject matter.
Phyllis began her career in urban design and planning, where she developed an artistic sensitivity for the interactive relationship between people, nature and the constructed urban environment. She creates images using the aesthetic of her subjects to tell stories about them. Phyllis is enthusiastic about her evolving skills, and is eager to embrace different aspects and genres of photography.
In her various studies Phyllis explores her fascination with fashion, design, social equality and representation. Her philosophy is to examine the concurrent concealment and exposure of clothing design in order to dissect the body and its relationship with people’s perspectives on power relations in society. In Phyllis’s portfolio you will also see her interpretations of the skyscraper, sustainable development themes, heritage adaptive re-use and apartment living - exploring the aesthetic quality as well as functionality and scale of body and space.
Phyllis is an expert in image retouching to create perfection in portraits, fashion and advertising images. Her skills in HDR and exposure fusion are invaluable in architectural photography to present highlighted and shadowed architectural details, or to view interior and exterior details in a single image.
