PPAC 2017 Top 10 International Photographers Series - Jacky Wong (Malaysia)
The great success and happiness of PPAC is with all our photographers to grow and success!
Still remember the first time met Jacky; was the day in Shanghai PPAC Convention. And he gained his first international award! In just one year, we can see his beautiful images and he shines in the international photography platform.
Jacky Wong, being a professional photographer for 10 years, has merged his 3 major passions in the life on his career path: Portrait, Pre-wedding and Travel. Knowing nothing about arts, his only wish is to transform those splendid pictures in his mind into his artworks. Having double personalities from two extremes, Jacky swings between two photographing styles: pre-wedding photography in a highly romantic style and portrait photography showing inspiring dramatic images. His early dream is to become a chef before being a photographer. Yet, he was unable to become a chef due to some reasons at the time. Instead, he became an assistant in a pre-wedding photography studio and has been in the industry since then.
He became a gold member of PPAC(Professional Photographers Asia Association) in 2015, which is the first professional photographers association he has ever joined.

In 2017, he further gained the 2nd place in Portrait category and 4 Gold Awards in PPAC International Print Competition 2017. He was even selected as one of the Top 10 International Photographers this year.
