Zenfolio | Calvin Yew Photography | About

Two of my great passions in life are travel and photography. I believe that travel broadens one's view of the world. Experiencing other cultures, meeting people from the other part of the world enriches my life experiences and made me appreciate my own home and culture.

Photography allows me to document my personal experience and journey of life. Through photography I capture scenes and moments as I see them and share it with others.

I started my photography journey five years ago when I first bought a digital DSLR. Since then, the passions keep burning and never stop. Two years ago, I started a photography blog which allows me to better express myself by combining pictures and words.

I specialize in travel photography and my work includes subjects ranging from landscapes to people and local culture to abstracts
