Our readers would love to get to know you more Malinda. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?

I see beauty where others do not. I approach my photography creatively and am not afraid to try new ideas. 

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

I started photographing my daily fashion looks in 2014 and soon become obsessed with composition, lighting, etc. I aspire to make people feel good about themselves and see the beauty that was there all along. 

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

I love the work of Bill Cunningham and often seek inspiration from my friends and nature around me. 

We all make mistakes Malinda; 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.

I must say I haven't approached that issue yet. 

Malinda , 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?

I keep all my clients separate from each other and acknowledge that they all have different expectations and needs. 

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

Some nights I need to stay up late to get images to the clients in the time frame agreed on. 

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

Everything I do is for that top image. While I like my clients to be comfortable, I also like to encourage them to break out of the there comfort zone. Often these are the best images and favourites of my clients. 

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

My proudest accomplishment to date would be delivering my first set of images to my first client. It was such a great feeling. 

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

I recently did a boho/gypsy inspired photo shoot with a client. I was in my element at sunset and had no limits. 

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

Keep learning and striving to be your best. Don't give up. 

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