Hi hello, I’m so glad you stopped by. 

I’m Justin J Wee, a Malaysian-born Australian photographer, based in New York City. 

When I was younger, and very much bound to the household television, my parents would often lament over laziness to do anything. So I made this website, almost exclusively, to show them all the things I am doing. 

I co-founded Special Sauce, a photography and digital media management studio, that specialises in food & beverage and restaurant photography. We’ve worked with the Jean-Georges group, Shake Shack, Chelsea Market, and other New York City hospitality titans. 

My editorial and personal work has been published on Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, Nylon, Passion Passport, and Hello Mr. I’ve also photographed travel and social justice stories for AirBNB and Nomi Network. 

Away from the lens, I co-founded Communion, a not-for-profit queer only dinner gathering that convenes once a month to foster conversation and community. I’m also a team member of Nomadique, a Brooklyn-based multimedia cooperative committed to facilitating cross cultural communication, self expression and empowerment. 

If you’d like to work with me, drop me a line at [email protected], or follow along on Instagram at @djdumpling.

See you around!
