Fiona first discovered her passion for photography when she joined the photography club at Raffles Girls’ Secondary School in Singapore. While attending the University of Texas at Austin, Fiona further developed her photographic skills by taking Photojournalism as an elective while majoring in Management Information Systems. Upon graduation with an honors degree of Bachelor of Business Administration, she returned to Kuala Lumpur and pursued her career as an IS Analyst at ExxonMobil. In 2005, Fiona decided to put her corporate career in the oil & gas industry on hold to pursue her love for photography full time and established FIFOTO Photography.
