Ted Adnan Asmadi, Photographer & Producer, based in Kuala
Ted was an office drone throughout most of the 90?s. After a stint of doing Accounts (amongst other mind-numbing “careers”)
Ted finally decided to pursue his true passion which is photography. He started to realise his vision in his photographic journey starting out as an studio assistant in a well known studio in the late 90?s. After 5 years doing his stint there, he is comfortable creating images in both in the analog and digital format and can easily transcend both locations and studio environments in producing his personal artistic visions and also to meet those of Clients needs.
He is now at the peak of his career but still on the look out to explore new things and to challenge himself in this highly competitive field of professional photography.
