Hello! Kamusta! 안녕하세요!

Thank you for visiting my website! I’d love to help you on your next photography project! First, a little introduction…

My name is Roy Cruz. I am a photographer based in Tongyeong, South Korea (a beautiful coastal city not far from the second-largest city of Busan). I have always loved to create pictures and experiment with different art forms. I am a Development Communication graduate from the University of the Philippines, which exposed me to broadcasting, print, and visual media. I started shooting professionally in 2007 in the Philippines and have since moved to South Korea. I do mainly travel, portrait, and documentary photography. I also shoot photos for hotels, restaurants and other commercial establishments. Please check out my portfolio and blog to get a better idea about the work I do.

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.

I am a dedicated husband, multifaceted geek, bass player, and father of a beautiful little girl. I also 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!
