Hi, my name is Kevin Chan. Thanks for stopping by.
I picked up photography back in 2010 when I purchased my first SLR with the help of a friend, and I have enjoyed it ever since. I have never had any formal photography training, and if it weren’t for my friend I probably would not have discovered my passion for photography. The first time I took my camera out to shoot pictures was very fun and exciting, and although I was still clueless what I was doing I discovered that photography is not as difficult as it seems. In the next few years I slowly became more proficient with the cameras and began to accumulate knowledge and experience that enable me to take photos the way I want to.
It is true that having a creative mind helps you greatly in photography. The natural ability to instantly recognize the beauty in an object and come up with a way to capture that beauty is invaluable to a photographer. However, that does not mean people who are born without that ability have zero chances of becoming great photographers. In fact, once you have accumulated enough experience shooting pictures, you’ll find yourself having the same ability as if it is a second nature to you. In another word, being talented may give you a boost when you start, but it is your determination that defines your achievement.
No one becomes an expert overnight. We’ve all been through the stage where we struggled to learn the basics and to improve our skills, and I was lucky enough to have friends who guided me through that process. I would like to offer you the same opportunity that I had. I’m by no means the most knowledgeable photographer you’ll ever meet. I still have a lot to learn and may not always have the answer for you. However, I promise if you have any photography questions for me I’ll answer them to the best of my knowledge and ability.
If you need to get a hold of me, feel free to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form on this website. I look forward to hear from you soon.
