Bonnie is a skilled storyteller and a deft hand at providing creative direction and stylish editing to breathe life to your brand’s digital content, be it an online commercial, a Youtube video or a music video.
Bonnie’s 2013 trip to the Artic ticked one item on her bucket list and spawned her first solo photo exhibition, The Jewel of the Arctic – A Photo Exhibition by Bonnie Yap. This exhibition raised funds for Assunta Integrated Social Service’s social welfare programme which oversees Rumah Ozanam, Rumah Juara and Assunta Children’s Society.
Based in KL, Bonnie is one of Malaysia’s top talents in photography and video production. She has been a Canon EOS Ambassador since 2017 and was named one of Marie Claire’s Amazing Women of 2019.
Her career began in 1990, when she joined a boutique advertising agency as a professional photographer upon graduation from the Malaysia Institute of Arts.
Two years on, she moved on to Malaysia’s leading English newspaper, The Star Publications. At a time when the industry was male-dominated, she carved a niche for herself in the news desk for seven years. She then moved on to The Star’s magazine arm where she broadened her portfolio and experience to include lifestyle photography for food, entertainment and business magazines.
After a 12-year stint with The Star Publications, Bonnie took her career to the next level by setting up her own photography and video production outfit. With her experience in the industry, she is much sought after by corporate, telecommunications, property as well as luxury fashion and lifestyle brands.
A truly versatile professional photographer and video director, Bonnie’s work extends to indoor studio food shoots to entertainment, travel and fashion. She has also been commissioned by regional clients for photo shoots around the world.
Bonnie is my in-house photographer and director of numerous projects for my personal brand and brands that engages myself as brand ambassador. Bonnie’s creativity and eye for the perfect moment are her key differentiation from others in the industry. Her communication of the Brand or Corporate Identity guidelines are always out of the box stunning. Bonnie as a person is someone charismatic and dedicated especially when she is on a project. I would hold Bonnie in the same regard in terms of work quality and dedication among some of the best international photographers I have worked with – Bonnie always DELIVER!
Having worked with Bonnie for more than 18 years, she has shown great professionalism throughout the years. She is ableto capture the essence of every project that she has been assigned to.

I’ve worked with Bonnie since the start of my career in PR. Bonnie’s expertise and no-nonsense attitude has resulted in the best photographs suited to the theme and mode of any event. She absolutely gets it and works tirelessly to ensure the best photograph output.

Bonnie is a professional and very easy to work with. She’s always on time, makes individuals feel at ease while being photographed, and most importantly, she’s very efficient and discreet. She listens to our brief, understands what is required and provides excellent ideas and results – highly recommend her for any events!
I have known Bonnie since her days with The Star Publications (Malaysia) Berhad) and have found working with her a painful yet fruitful experience. She is detailed and meticulous, full of creative ideas and when she gets going, there’s no stopping her. To her, time is not of essence when it comes to completing a job. It is all about QUALITY end results, one that not only speaks of the products but bears the testament and hallmark of top notch photography…..a photograph or an image that speaks volume. And that’s the style and characteristic of Bonnie.
For me, Bonnie’s ability to take a job brief and turn in the end results that we demand (with minimum fuss) is a true reflection of her skill and professionalism. From food or corporate imagery to video, we have always been happy to trust her in delivering the creative output that is consistent with our branding requirements. That’s why Bonnie is Traders Hotel’s go-to person for photography and video production.
Bonnie Yap, whom we have been engaging as our official photographer for many of our corporate events over the past few years have proven to deliver quality end-products that fulfil our needs and demands. Her excellent skills and proven track record complemented by her fun personality make her very easy to work with regardless of the scale of the event. Bonnie is always well prepared, understands the client’s requirements and provide further ideas to enhance the deliverables. Apart from her seasoned skills, professionalism and timeliness are also amongst her key attributes that are best to highlight. Without worry, we always know that we can count on her to deliver the photos that we want on time.
Bonnie is one of those unique character with a style that’ll surprise you the first time you meet her. She’s honest and direct and can catch you off-guard but that’s her way of clarifying on what you may not have thought off before. Nevertheless, she will take the time to understand what you need and give the best recommendations. When she’s on the job, her take charge attitude takes over to determine what’s best for the situation. She has always delivered based on the job brief and any diversion from the plan would be justified to get you the unexpected money-shot. When you work on an event, you need good partners and in Bonnie we have a personality who’ll take over the recording of your event highlights.
