Description:

(Do More Photographers Educator)


Boon Ong is a nude art and intimate lifestyle photographer and educator, widely recognized for his emotional, honest and storytelling approach in his photography work.  


Born and raised from a conservative Asian family in Malaysia, a huge part of Boon’s life was living within constraints, secrecy, and frustration. He wants to use his art as a way to advocate for new freedom, break down barriers and taboos, and create a safe space for people to find confidence in their own body and sexuality. 


In addition to his work frequently being published in magazines, Boon has also earned multiple awards include, 2019 Emerging Photographer of The Year in Alberta, Do More Awards in Canada, and International Photography Awards in NYC. In 2018-2020, Boon has been appointed as an educator by Do More Photographers in Ontario and Las Vegas. 


His most recent achievement is presenting two exhibitions “Our Closets” and “Dirty Laundry” in the city of Calgary, showcasing his nude art work in the Contemporary Calgary, city’s largest gallery. His proudest moment is when his work is being used as educational reference material by Emily Carr University of Art & Design, Vancouver.

Level 2: In-home Nude Art & Intimate Lifestyle Ses


With the core of Boon’s work mainly shooting in-home at client’s, it is a daunting idea to set yourself in a vulnerable position, stepping into the foreign space, photographing clients of all types. There are simply a lot of preparation work and elements to pay attention to in a short period of time during the photo session.


Boon will take you through his creating process using a simplistic approach in dissecting all the technical elements that could help you create consistently. Boon will also cover the principle of natural posing in nude art and shooting by intention. These skill sets are extremely useful to photograph every person regardless of gender, body shape, age, etc.
