UWP: TIM HO






























Compact Camera photographer scubaTIM started off his photography in
2009 when he purchased his first underwater camera, the IXUS80is.

Unintimidated by the bigger set-ups that surrounded him, he explored
what he could do with a smaller camera with no strobes to produce
pictures that could be placed side by side with the pros and not look
like child's play.

Self-taught, today his capabilities in producing notable imagery
without the aid of Photoshop and Lightroom editing, nor the use of
strobes has made him the underdog hero to many who cannot afford the
high cost of 'pro-machinery'.

In 2010 Tim successfully became ONE OF TWO Malaysian to receive a medal in underwaterphotography.com's annual selection and in 2012, Tim's portfolio was selected for the EFF "Macro Portfolios" special edition.

Today Tim continues experimenting with new techniques and ideas while
still upholding his strobeless, no PS & LR promise.

Quote: "Compact Camera VS DSLR is like racing a bicycle and an F1 car.
When you're racing thru narrow, busy pathways, rocky, muddy roads or
when there is a flight of stairs involved, the bicycle stands a pretty
good chance. OBVIOUSLY ON A HIGHWAY THE F1 CAR WILL RUN YOU OVER!

The point is to know which races to participate in and which one to
just sit-back to watch. There are more roads a bicycle can race on
compared to an F1 car and I'd rather be racing than watching.
