Thomas Lim

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Born in Singapore, Thomas chose to pursue his photography dream in Australia. Learning his craft through the Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE (NMIT)'s Diploma in Photo Imaging, 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.

"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.
