Nice to e-meet you!

I'm an award-winning Director of Photography, VFX/Retouching Artist, and Small Business Advisor working with agencies and exciting brands.

When I’m not working on commercial projects you'll find me developing systems to help make creativity more accessible (and more profitable) for content creators, startups and small business owners.

I've helped brands see an increase in organic engagement on social media; expand their market share from small shelves to big mainstream distributors, and win multiple industry awards.

I am a graduate of several programs, including the Langara Professional Photography program and Brainstation's Design Thinking and Product Management programs, in addition to 6 years of independent courses and Continuing Studies programs.

Got an idea in mind? I'd love to chat!

I work with Kai for higher-end, perfection looking stuff.

I'm not going to trust someone else with that. He's quite detail-oriented.

We had the pleasure of working with Kai Mallari for 7 months. During this time, he produced beautiful product photography alongside lifestyle and video shoots as well.

Kai is a multi-faceted, detailed technical photographer who produces high-quality, luxury photographs. He is passionate about photography, with a keen eye for elegance and beauty, which is evident in his work. He creates photographs, videos and 3D images with ease, regardless of how challenging the ask may be.

Kai sets high standards for himself and his work, ensuring that he exceeds those standards from the pre-planning stage all the way through to the editing/completion phase. He is reliable, holding himself accountable for any task and timeline he is given, remaining dedicated to the end goal of a high-quality product.

We have enjoyed working alongside of Kai and know that he is an asset to any company he chooses to work with.

A huge thank you for taking the portraits at the gala and photos for the opening of the new hospital wings.

All the photos were beautiful.

I found the work incredibly detailed and proficient, an excellent execution of difficult techniques that few other individuals working in the local pro photography market would be able to perform.

Kai proved to be flexible, thoughtful and talented.

His initiative, experience and professional work ethic allowed us all to enjoy the day that raised more than $500,000.

We knew the photography would be fantastic.
