    Adam is passionate, creative, filled with inquisitive awe and zeal for photography. A champion and lover of photography art, he possesses such vivid imagination and excellent interpretative skill and yet an earnest and devoted friend and teacher. One who believes success comes with intense longing, fervent love, teachability, perseverance and humility.

    Adam is passionately in love with photography and had been doing this for the past 20 years. He has an ability to discern the special, the significance out of the ordinary with his unique sight and capture it through his masterful skill and narrative. However, Adam's higher purpose is to impart and transfer this passion to others. He establishes photography classes, workshop and sharing fellowship and leads travel trips and etc with the single-minded devotion to teach this art to his students. Each year, many of his students participated in contests and earned awards and mentions from all over the world.

    He shares his philosophy openly and his techniques unreservedly. His perception and interpretation , his invention and creative skill are of the highest standard. He compressed all these into a series of courses to allow quick comprehension of theory and easy mastery of techniques.

    “This is probably my widest dream came true”, said Adam, when he learned that his work has been selected as the winner in National Geographic Photography Contest in 2013.
