One day, out of the blue, Craig Chung picked up a camera and started taking pictures. He enjoyed photography, but didn’t take it very seriously when he was younger. In fact, the only reason Craig took a photography course in high school was because it was an “easy” credit. Little did he know back then, photography would become one of his passions.
Craig Chung’s story begins in Markham, Ontario, where he grew up as the oldest of three in a close knit family. His grandparents have been a great source of inspiration to him. They started with very little and created a good life through hard work and determination. From them, Craig knew anything was possible, including his dream of opening his own business.
Craig has always had an entrepreneurial spirit and in 2006, his dream became a reality when he founded Remember When, (a wedding and special event videography company) and Timeless Productions (a corporate and entertainment videography company).
In 2010, Craig planned Toronto’s largest model convention, the iModelExpo, which featured UFC Ring Girls and Maxim models, Arianny Celeste and Rachelle Leah. The event catered to the fashion and model industry of Toronto while giving participants a chance to network, meet face-to-face with industry insiders and gain valuable exposure. iModelExpo also included a variety of workshops and seminars, plus gave fans an opportunity to have their merchandise signed by their favorite print model.
The Pursuit of Photography
While Remember When and Timeless Productions continue to thrive and grow, Craig decided to return to his first love and focus on photography in 2012. He loves the intimacy of still photography and telling stories through images. Photography allows Craig to more closely interact with couples and their friends and family, thus giving him the ability to allow their unique personalities to shine through in photos.
Craig takes personal pride in capturing the celebration of your love through his camera lens and elevating your wedding album by replacing typical, ho-hum wedding pictures with gallery-worthy artwork. From those special little moments between you and your loved ones to your first kiss as husband and wife, Craig has a great eye for capturing priceless moments so you can remember them forever.
