Born in Australia, Mick Wong, a.k.a. Michael Beresford Wong, taught himself photography from the age of twelve shooting the native birds that would visit his backyard. But it was backpacking around the world that hooked him on film; road trips, strangers in the street, mystical landscapes and unknowns behind closed doors all fed his curiosity for adventure, the unsung hero and celebrating the day to day.
This inspiration fuels the award winning work he does for clients worldwide including; VW Skoda, Mitsubishi, Vodafone, Medibank, Optus, KPN, Rabobank, MTV, Discovery Channel.
Mick Wong writes, produces, photographs and direct films, completing a feature length documentary about a photographer’s swan song project, Yours Sincerely, Mr Yim for Channel News Asia with just a two man team. He is currently in pre-production on an independent feature called DAR, which he wrote after living on the island of Gozo for seven years.
He lives in Brighton, UK with his wife and three children.
