In the spotlight: MICHELE YONG (fashion photographer)

For those who have seen her fashion shots, Michele Yong stands out as one of Malaysia’s rising stars in the world of fashion photography. What comes as a surprise, is that she hails from the laid-back seaside city of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysian Borneo!

The quiet maturity and composure of this talented photographer makes it hard to believe that she is only in her early 20s, which makes her accomplishments seem all the more compelling. After having studied Business & Humanities in her college years, Yong fell into the world of photography as an assistant to award-winning wedding photographer Louis Pang before moving on to her true calling as a current fashion photographer.

Here’s some her latest work. Simply sublime.

With a keen artistic eye and finger on the pulse of the today’s cutting-edge style and fashion trends, Yong’s innate ability to translate her creative vision into digital fashion images have garnered her a small but avid cult following from fashion industry people both in Malaysia and on the international circuit. She describes her style as simple, sleek and sexy, and has shot editorials for Sabah-based Breeze Magazine as well as for Malaysia International Fashion Week (MIFA) 2010 in Kuala Lumpur.

Her passion for fashion photography has taken her to numerous exotic locations in Australia, Singapore, Thailand and Europe, where she has worked with some of the hottest new talents in the modeling industry.

Currently based in Paris, France, she is broadening her horizons and seeking her fortune as an international fashion photographer.

The Sabah Fashion Blog loves her work and wishes her all the best in the future projects. We can’t wait to see her next photoshoot!

Au revoir!
