Born and raised in Scotland - within two years of graduating, Wong moved to Canada - becoming the youngest director at Ubisoft, the video game company behind Far Cry and Assassin’s Creed. In parallel with his blossoming career in video games, Wong was teaching himself photography.
In December 2015 he purchased his first DSLR (a Canon 5D III) and his debut photo series: 'Tokyo Nights (TO:KY:OO)’ - capturing the beauty of night through moments after midnight - inspired by sci-fi, neon-noir, cyberpunk and Japanese animation - gained over a million views worldwide, accumulating a following online and kickstarting his journey into photography. Wong has since collaborated with many high profile companies, artists, musicians and directors. His work has been recognized by media outlets such as BBC, Forbes, Business Insider, Saatchi and Adobe. Full press list available here. In 2019 ‘TO:KY:OO’ became the largest crowdfunded book in the UK and will follow up with a worldwide release, including words by game creator Hideo Kojima and visual futurist Syd Mead.
Wong is now freelance and working on unannounced projects across film, video games and photography. Available for collaborations.
A regular public speaker - Wong has spoken at events around the world and is always open for opportunities to share his expertise. Past public speaking events include the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, Game Developers Conference and Canon.
Available for freelance & commissions.
