Vancouver, British Columbia
Stephen Lam is an photographer & an outdoor enthusiast. He has spent the last eight years traveling all over the world, while basing himself out of Vancouver, Canada. Over the last four years Stephen has been actively hiking and photographing landscapes to traveling to beautiful cultures throughout the world, including the Moai statues of Easter Island, the metropolitan city life in Asia-Pacific, the remote corners of the Himalaya, the oldest geological table top mountains with the highest waterfall on Earth in South America, the annual red crab migration at Christmas Island, the famous ruins of Peru and Egypt, and chasing bluebird days throughout the incredible Canadian Rockies. Working as a freelance adventure, travel and landscape photographer, Stephen volunteers guiding with local outdoor organizations to organize hikes and recreational outings in British Columbia, meeting new friends, and creating lasting memories.
Stephen considers himself to be a purist; his approach is to capture untouched natural beauty with his camera. He does not believe in any manipulation of his images. To capture the images, Stephen travels to remote locations around the world and sometimes visits locations year after year to capture just the right light, often waiting long periods for the rain to stop, the wind to still, the fog to lift.
Stephen’s imagery transports the viewer behind his lens of his camera to explore remote and inaccessible regions through his eyes, awakening a sense of wonder and appreciation for the natural world.
