I am David Nam Lip LEE. I was born in May 1976, in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Sabah is a state of Malaysia, and we also called Sabah “Land Below the Wind” because it lies below the typhoon belt. I completed my primary and secondary study in my hometown. I did my undergraduate studies major in construction management and economics at Curtin University of Technology, Australia. After the graduation, I worked as a manager in a seafood restaurant at my hometown.
I love photography since I was eighteen years old. I hardly gain knowledge about photography because it was a costly hobby on those days. My loves to capture images never change but I don’t know how good my images were. I joined my first photography workshop in 2014, which organized by Mr. Danny Yen Sin WONG. He guided me from a snapshot photographer to become an artist who active in international competition and exhibition.

My passion to photography has changed my view to the world. I travel to different countries, and documented my exploration by photography. As a travel photographer, I love to photograph human interest and cultural of people. As a wildlife photographer, I learn how to respect the Mother Nature and behavior of animal before I can photograph them. Continuously self-learning and gain advises from experienced photographers have improved my skills and knowledge. I know I need a new direction for my photography dream. My goal is to show people with images that can warm their hearth.
