PASSIONATE EMOTIONS – EVELYN LAM
* certified Licentiate Master Photographer ( MPA UK ) * One of 10 Women selected by Canon to showcase their works at KLCC 2011 * Organizer of Behind The Lens * Editor of LifeStyleBrides.com *
Evelyn Lam never knew that she’d end up a wedding & portrait photographer although she has always loved taking pictures since she was a teenager. She studied business at the university and worked in diverse industries. She had not derived as much satisfaction from any of her past work until she found photography.
Together with her partner, Peter Tan, & a team of 6 assistant photographers, they make up the Peter Tan Photography. Together, they have shot quite a number of weddings, including Malaysia’s very own Prince of Drift’s wedding, last December.
In April 2010, Evelyn was certified a Master Photographer by the Master Photographers Association (MPA), UK and found out later, that she is the first female photographer to be accredited with that qualification in Malaysia. Evelyn was recently nominated as one of the Top 10 Female Wedding Photographers by FACES Magazine. She was featured in the Gorgeous magazine and in the leading English daily, The Star newspaper and was one of 10 women photographers chosen by CANON Marketing Malaysia, to have their works displayed at the Femme City exhibition at the KLCC Convention Center. She also photographed Jason Derulo during his concert in Kuala Lumpur. Most recently, she was only 1 of 4 women photographers chosen to shoot the theatrical performance of WOMEN:100, a 100 year celebration of women’s independence. She has shot several other theater performances namely, The Good Body by Susan Lankaster, Taming of The Shrew and Gods of Carnage.
Evelyn loves capturing the intimacy and passion of the couple purely because she wants her clients to remember that same exact emotional connection, for many years to come.
