The man who turns brides and grooms into ‘superstars’ for just one day

Malaysia-based international award-winning photographer Kevin Then is an expert in the business of dreams.

Hasselblad Master Kevin is constantly reinventing his creative approach.KevinThen-BKKworkshop-_183He founded his business in Johor ten years ago and, using Hasselblad medium format cameras and pioneering digital capture techniques, he quickly developed a world-wide client base, working for clients like L’Oréal Paris, Shiseido Japan and a wide range of global magazines – alongside the production of a raft of promotional material for Hasselblad itself.KevinThen-BKKworkshop-_156Kevin strives to capture the spirit and blur the lines that separate commerce and art.

Now, as a pre-eminent portrait and wedding photographer he has become well-known for making wedding couples look like film stars.

“A wedding photograph shouldn’t just be that typically traditional shot of a bride standing around wearing a wedding gown” he says. “I must make the day far more dramatic and romantic. Like a film director, I need to have the picture set up in a certain way with the bride’s dress, the veil, the face, make-up and hair, all perfect. These images will stay with the couple for their whole lives. My ambition is always to strike a chord.”KevinThen-BKKworkshop-_21Kevin reveals that when he became a Hasselblad Master in 2008 it changed his career forever. He now has a string of international photo-honours from a number of photo associations including the WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) and the RPS (Royal Photographic Society).
