Following the lens

Balancing my love of photography with design

I must say, i’m excited to be blogging. Four years ago, in the summer of 2011, I started a blog to get me motivated about photography and to challenge myself with the 365 project. I may have had half a dozen visitors for the first few weeks. And even till now, I don’t have much traffic at all on that blog. But it really was one of the best things I ever did. Not only do I have an archive of over 200 posts and hundreds of photographs, I have proof that I was passionate about something and carried through for no one but myself.

However, fast forward 4 years later and I couldn’t be happier about graduating with a BFA in graphic design and focusing all my energy and passion into design. My photography kind of paused along the way for a few years. But now i’m excited about taking it back up, and to keep taking photos while continuing my career in design. Whether I integrate both these disciplines together in the future isn’t really a concern for me. I just hope that whatever I do, I’ll always keep the camera close to me.

Below is a teaser collection of my photography over the last couple years.
