In my journey of photography, over a period of 20+ years since I held my first Pentax ME Super SLR film camera and starting to “fire away” by pressing the shutter and wasting precious film when I was just a young boy with no knowledge about photography. I never looked back since and today, I am enjoying my photography a lot and getting more excited with a personal growth in discovering my calling in personal projects e.g. heritage, documentation, conservation, preservation and photojournalism.
One personal philosophy on personal development and growth is life long learning, regardless of whether it is in work, studies or leisure. There is always something new to learn everyday. I grew up along with National Geographic and I am a great fan of their magazines, stories and their beautiful photographs. They had a huge influence on me and my photography, inspiring me and always learning from the master photographers of National Geographic through their photography guide books and National Geographic Magazine. When I received news of an exclusive photography seminar by National Geographic Photographer Joe Riis, I had to share this wonderful news with all my readers here, especially the photography enthusiasts. This is a wonderful and awesome opportunity to learn from a master in photography! Here are the details of the exclusive photography seminar –
