photographer, Malaysia

Dr. Wei Seng Chen is a Malaysian freelance photographer. He takes on assignments for local and foreign photo agencies or event management companies, shooting mostly sports events and tournaments.

Dr. Chen began experimenting with photography at the age of 13. He joined his school’s photography club in 1975 and learned all about photography, from shooting and processing film to making prints in the darkroom. However, he had to take a break from photography when he enrolled in medical school.

He got back into photography in 2006 when he bought a DSLR camera. The long hours spent developing film and making prints in the darkroom were no longer necessary because the computer and printer took over the role.

The Internet brought about a market place for Dr. Chen to sell his images as a hobbyist photographer. He began to get freelance work covering events when his images were shared on social networking websites and photography forums. His hobby now allows him to travel to exotic places in Asia looking for interesting local celebrations and traditional sports.

Today he balances his time working as a family physician, researcher, preceptor to a medical school and a photographer.

Johannes Stoetter

It may be hard to believe, but the frog you’re about to see is not a frog at all!

Inspired by nature, recognized body painter Johannes Stoetter turns living models into animals, fruits, flowers, or blends them with the surroundings. These impressively detailed paintings take up to five months of thorough planning and up to eight hours of work to complete. The winner of the World Bodypainting Championship in 2012 says that the key to success is to love what you’re doing:

“I think I observe the world, nature, colors and shapes with very clear eyes and an open heart. And painting is my big passion.”

Check out his amazing works, including the latest and most impressive body painting – a tree frog, which was created using five human models.
