The Person Behind The Lens

Born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and raised in Kota Kinabalu, Borneo, Su Ann is a Portrait Photographer and Cinematic Videographer based in Northern Colorado.

Where I’m from
I was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, but grew up in Kota Kinabalu, Borneo. My family moved back to K.L. after 12 years and have been stationed there ever since. I started college in South Arkansas, got married in Texas and am now based in North Colorado with my husband and 2 fur-children.

How My Love Started
Growing up I’ve always expressed myself through art, writing, dance and music so when my family got our first camera I fell in love. I thought it was the perfect way for me to channel my creativity. I would write scripts for my sisters to act in and hold “high-fashion” photoshoots in our living room. I was always amazed at how digital visual storytelling could capture people’s personalities in time and how revisiting these memories could have such a big impact.

Photo & Video as a Professional
As an adult I found my way to the worlds of mass communications and film. I loved every second of it but had even more fun when I began working as a full-time photographer and videographer for my university. In those years I took every opportunity to capture photo and video for anything that I could & my love for storytelling blossomed. Today I work in online marketing and have a greater appreciation for the art. In my day job as well as in my creative outlet I see how positive messaging can impact people and I want to help promote these representations.

I love what I do because I get to help people in my own unique way!
