Hello! Kamusta! 안녕하세요!

Thank you for visiting my website!

My name is Roy Cruz. I am a photographer based in South Korea and the Philippines. I have always loved to create pictures and experiment with different art forms. A Development Communication graduate from the University of the Philippines, I was exposed  to broadcasting, print, and visual media during my formative years. I started shooting professionally in 2007 in Manila, Philippines and have since made South Korea my second home.

I practice various types of photography including travel, portrait, documentary, and product photography for private clients, publications, and corporations. Please check out my portfolio and blog to get a better idea about the work I do.

I also have a dedicated studio page especially for couples and families.

As a photographer, I am a problem solver with ample technical knowledge. More importantly, I have a keen eye to see things in different ways and capture decisive moments as they happen. I’m flexible, easy to work with, and I return the client’s invaluable trust by delivering high quality images in the shortest time possible.

As a photography educator and content creator, I love sharing knowledge and helping my students, readers, and viewers grow in our craft. Check out my education and gear posts to learn more and geek out about photography.

I am also a dedicated husband, bass player, and father. I love cars, street food, and traveling.

But enough about me. Let’s talk about you. If you like the work you see here and feel I might be of service on your next project, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Whether you’re in South Korea, the Philippines, or anywhere in the world, I’d love to hear from you!
