Lem has been an avid photographer since 1983, from using a manual SLR to digital medium format system. Starting with black and white photography and film processing from his institution’s photography club, he quickly then moved on to colour films and slides. His desire to attain better image quality motivated him to upgrade to the medium format system. Hereafter, he focused on studio and portrait photography. He is often fascinated with the results of his photography work, and sees photography as a way to communicate his thoughts on the ever-changing world. In 2003, he advanced to the digital photography system.
After 12 years in this field, Lem took a dive into doing what he enjoys most, and started his very own photography business in 2005. Lem is now the photographer and founder of DStudioLab, offering a wide range of professional photography services, prints, and studio workshops.
