SIDE HUSTLE.
MAIN FOCUS.

You probably have a side hustle–photography, graphic design, maybe even Dj-ing. But don’t forget to hustle smart. Read how a graphic designer by day not only keeps his full-time job but also strikes a balance between passion and work.

Wei Jiang’s surreal, fantastical photo mosaics in his signature black and white monochrome have captured the imagination of many. In our collabration with Wei Jiang and M Social, we speak to the graphic designer by day on his photography side hustle, his dreams for the future and how he balances his full-time work and creative side.

INTERVIEW

WEI JIANG

Shooting under the name Orhganic, Wei Jiang’s black and white images often draw chuckles from followers, as well as acknowledgement of the creativity and effort it takes to put them together. Blending elements of photography and design, he takes cues from the world of fine art, citing surrealist artists such as Salvador Dali and René Magritte as inspirations.

PASSION ≠ BURNOUT

“I don’t see photography as a full-time career at the moment. For now, I’m happy to have a full-time job which means there’s no stress to rely on photography as my only source of income.”

GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO SAVE

“Saving for the future is priority for me... I have a savings account that has a fixed sum automatically transferred into every month. With all the other expenses allocated, this leaves me with a small sum for the month and keeps my spending in check.”

QUALITY > SAVING A FEW PENNIES

“My best investment has been my external flash. I don’t use it all the time, but it has saved my life more than a few times–whether on paid or personal jobs.”

NOT ALL LESSONS ARE LEARNED IN THE CLASSROOM

“Photograph anything and everything. There’re lessons to be learnt from shooting different subjects, and they can be applied interchangeably, whether you end up posting an image or not.”

Think inside the grid

“If it’s a simple DSLR or mirrorless camera with a kit lens, stick with it for a while–maybe a year or more. You might struggle with the limitations, but this is when you learn your own photography tricks and discover your style.”
