I like to experiment I take every job as an opportunity to explore and experience work whether it's a fashion garment or photography

Dio, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?

My aspiration in life is to inspire others. To help others by giving them part of my job perhaps not as a boss but as a co-worker that is working hand in hand attaining one goal. My skill in photography came as a self-discovery i did not know I have it but I work hard to attain/achieve something that's how I got into taking portraits.

Who is your inspiration in life Dio? How do you keep inspired?

Nelson Mandela.

We all make mistakes Dio; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Photographer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.

It is always important to be civil to your colleague's insecurities cannot be avoided. So better be a friend to everyone you come across to.. whether it be a colleague or most especially client.

Dio, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?

Always sit down with theme talk and plan a workflow in order to avoid complications. An also avoid overbooking. Quality over quantity.

Please tell us, Dio, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?

There is no better strategy than "planning", and as much as possible do the work your self. Be hands-on.

Dio, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

Always be vocal about what you want and how you want to achieve something it is better to correct something right away before it's too late.

Dio please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?

I like it when my colleague gives me that approval of something that I worked on when they say of how they wish to have worked like that.

Dio, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

There is no easy job or work. What I always motivate my self to do the job well. And always be thankful for it.

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?

Have fun. Keeping your energy up will make you excited every single time with whatever project you are in.

Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?

Landscape and portraits. I wish to showcase local destination to invite people to come and experience what its like to be there.
