Johnny C.Y. Lam                Work PlayAbout / Contact / Instagram 

My name is Johnny,   C.Y.  is the initial of my Chinese name - 仲賢 (Chung Yin).

I am an editorial and commercial  photographer based in the historic town of Bonavista, Newfoundland and travel often for work. My primary focus is portraiture, lifestyle and documentary photography. 

Making photographs and traveling are my life passions. I have always had a strong sense of curiosity about the world and enjoy telling stories with my images.  

I grew up in Hong Kong and moved to Canada with my family at age 15. Although I studied illustration, it is in photography where I find my voice as an artist.   

Some of my favourite things are airports, bonsai and bicycles. When I am not taking photos, I enjoy cooking,  cycling, fishing and reading photo books at home.
