About Me

How Photography Started

Hello my name is Henry Lam and I’ve been a photographer since 2003. I currently live with my lovely Elaine in Darwin, Australia. Over my life as a photographer I have come to learn to appreciate a variety of genres of photography.

[Travel]

Travelling has only recent been something that I have grown akin to loving. Inspired by known photographers such as Elia Lorcadi, Art Wolfe and Richard I’anson.

My goal in my travel photos is to evoke, inspiration. I want to inspire my viewers to one; appreciate the beauty in these places around the world and two; create a desire for them to visit for themselves.

[Cityscape]

Cityscape acts as a branch of Travel photography as I aspire to capture as many different cities as I can. I informally tell people that cities around the world are placed onto a bingo board. The more I can tick off the more successful I feel. 

I also have a slight obsession for skyscrapers and iconic buildings. I have high regards on how people from different backgrounds must have come together to work on such mega-projects.

I have always loved a good city view with lights and interesting buildings and skyscrapers. Cities often show off the character and culture of the environment. When it comes to cityscapes, it is preferred to capture the scenery during the evening or morning blue hour. I tend to prefer the evening blue hour as it usually has more of the city lights on. 

[People]

When it comes to photographing people I enjoy expressing the comfort and joy of being around others. I am naturally a people person who enjoys the pleasures of meeting and working with new people. Friendliness and comfort are my dominating values around my people shoot. I will humbly admit my favorite type of people to photograph are beautiful women.

[Teaching]

Finally teaching has always been a passion of mine.  I love learning and passing on my knowledge to other photographers. For me teaching is a way of me giving back to the photography world. As you can already tell, I love photography and wanting to share that love to others is something I hold very dear.
