Thomas Lim

Born in Singapore, Thomas chose to pursue his photography dream in Australia. Graduated from the Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE (NMIT)'s Diploma in Photo Imaging in Victoria, Australia, Thomas combines his background in video production with his photography, capturing images and the feel it gives him.

Thomas believes Photography is about delivering visions from one person to another. There are always two people in a photograph: the photographer and the viewer. Thomas wants his images to provoke thoughts and emotions, thereby encouraging the viewer to see a world through his eyes.

He relishes spending time with his camera in nature within the rural environment and in national parks, allowing for the exploration of seldom seen, unknown places in the woods and forests. Far away from the maddening crowds... . savouring the journeys on top of the result.

In addition to landscape photography, Thomas has a penchant for photographing people. Capturing raw emotions in combination with his desire for utilising artificial lighting and random landscapes which form the environmental palette.

"Without motivation, passion is nothing... ."

Thomas's philosophy for photography is very simple, "Keep Shooting". You won't get that image with the camera sitting in its case. In spite of all the technical knowledge and gear, without seeking out the scene and clicking that shutter, photography would just be another passive hobby.
