Alvin’s immense passion for music and his obsession with capturing live music moments has led him to immortalising local artistes at intimate gigs to international superstars at sold out arena shows for more than 9 years. Through his photos, Alvin aims to let his viewers feel the same adrenaline rush and atmosphere the fans at the front row experienced. Between the blazing lights and roaring crowds, Alvin also dedicates his time into documenting social and community projects with the vision of using this medium to bridge cultural differences and spread optimism to the less privileged. Together with Canon Imaging Academy, Alvin conducts basic photography workshops and product training for Canon consumers.
