Our world is filled with much. Much happiness, anxiety, sorrow, excitement, and grief. As a person who believes that our world has a story, a direction, an ending point - telos, I happen to believe that this story has a happy ending. But if there is an end, how can it be happy? How can "the end" equate to any happiness? Well, I also happen to believe that the end is also the beginning. The telos is also the beginning - the beginning of something very exciting and hopeful. With the camera as a tool, and theology as my perspective, I endeavour to catch a glimpse of that telos in our present reality. One that is of beauty, hope, love, and joy.
Hi, my name is Sam, a photographer based in Sydney. This is my world paradox.
Blessed with wonderful and generous parents, I received my first DSLR at the age of 18. It was a Nikon D90, and I carried it everywhere I go. Taking photos ranging from streets to nature, photography was my passion. I even had my photos published by the top photography magazine in Malaysia: Digital Camera. Over the past ten years, I have had the privilege of working with industry leading media freelancers, organizations, models, and everyday people. From photography to video production, graphic design to marketing, I consider it a blessing to be able to gain a wide area of experience not limited to my craft alone. One crucial lesson I learned over these 10 years is that communication is key. And if nothing else, photography has led me to grow out of my shy and introverted shell.
Today, photography remains my passion and people my muse. By combining both creativity and theology (or philosophy if you like), I intend to capture stylized portraits of you according to the telos that I believe.
