About Alvin Kean Wong - Based in NY
Photographer + Director Alvin Kean Wong is based in NYC.
Alvin Kean Wong was born and raised in Singapore. Although he studied mechanical engineering throughout his schooling, he always gravitated toward artistic venues. He picked up his first camera at the tender age of 8. What started as an after-school pastime then became a means to explore, understand, and travel the world. After a stint working in the Airforce, Alvin moved to New York in 2009 to pursue working as a Photo Assistant. He got his start scanning negatives for Anders Overgaard as his first foray into the industry. Through his work with Anders, Alvin moved on to photo assist for International Magazines and Brand Campaigns with top photographers including Alexei Hay, Diego Uchitel, Mario Sorrenti, Walter Chin, David Roemer, Emma Tempest, Hans Neumann, and Julia Noni. In 2019, he set out to focus on developing his own body of work. Alvin's unique style of fashion documentary and lighting sensibility has given him the opportunity to work with many international brands and publications.
