THE ARTIST

I am a versatile self-taught photographer based in the beautiful islands of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.  I love shooting people, nature and landscape. For me, I consider photography as one of the avenues to express my creativity; it is an art and an extension of my creative mind.  Our camera is just a tool that physicalize what our eyes can see. As the saying goes: "The camera itself will not create a beautiful image, it's the person behind that gear who makes a beautiful compelling story-telling photographs" ,  and I can't stress those statements long enough.

In year 2014, I won  1st place (Flora & Fauna Category) at the National Geographic Canada for the image entitled, "Portrait of a Fly".  It is a great honour to be picked and recognized  out of six thousands plus photo entries submitted.(http://tinyurl.com/z9vxqof)
