Aizat K is a fine art photographer from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and he is best known for his cinematic and unique artistic vision. A self-taught photographer, he has been taking photographs since 2008, in multiple genres from street photography to events and fashion before finally concentrating all his creativity into fine art portraiture. His portrait styles can be defined as environmental (portrait with a location context), with a focus on emotion and faithful representation of the subject, hence his choice of mellow and drab colours in post-processing.

Well-versed in studio lighting, he discovered greater fulfilment in on-location photography using only natural lights. He believes that artificial lighting tends to take away the emotion and character of his portrait works. He also thinks a portrait is best portrayed with the presence of a real environment, rather than having a blank canvas as the background. From landscape, things, to people portraits, he has this ability to give his photographs soul, by playing with light and shadow and also adapting to the environment.

At this moment, he currently resides in Oxford, UK. When he’s not out shooting, he can be seen wandering around the city and hopping from different coffee shops to another in searching for a good cup of coffee every day.
