Carmen Wong Fisch is a professional portrait photographer and has been living in Switzerland and Germany since 2001. She was born in Hong Kong and raised in Toronto, Canada where her modeling career started.
Carmen has a fascination with photography, fashion, hair & makeup since her teenage year. Her favorite subjects are art and music. Her dream was to become an artist but was sadly discourage by her conservative parents. Despite their opposition, the rebellious youngster went on to become a fashion model with the world renowned Ford Models Agency after being discovered by a scout on her first catwalk for her high school’s fashion show. She has since worked with numerous photographers in Canada, Hong Kong and Switzerland. She has been featured on many magazines, advertisements, TV commercials, music videos and billboards.
Carmen loves working in front and behind the camera and started to study posing, lighting, styling, hair & makeup while being on sets. She studied fashion at Ryerson University and devoured fashion magazines. She often assisted her photographer friends as a makeup artist, stylist, and model at the same time. She even once played a small role in Mariah Carey’s movie “Glitter” as her makeup artist.
Then her husband gifted her the first SLR camera after their daughter was born. She has since photographed hundreds of families & individuals in her area.
In December 2017, she finally found a natural light studio space near Voltaplatz, Basel. In this creative and private space, she can control the lighting and fully pamper her clients with in-house hair & makeup service either by herself or with a makeup & hair artist.
Her mission is to empower people to connect their inner and outer beauty. To help them to feel comfortable and look amazing on photos. She believes when people feel good about themselves, they can do better in all areas of their lives.
Besides working on her business, she loves spending quality time with her family. With a focus on simplicity, health, fitness & wellness. She loves meeting new people, travelling, cooking, reading, playing piano and connecting with friends from around the world.
