At the age of 13, Lin received a Christmas present – a plastic toy camera 'that takes REAL picture' (as the box said). His journey to the world of photography thus began. That was in 1977.

After graduating Sixth Form, Lin went to Boston to study Fine Arts and later trained professionally in photography. Today, Lin is running his commercial studio in KL working on advertising, editorial & fine art assignments.

When Lin is not holding his camera, he'd be holding either a book or a power tool working on DIY projects; either perfecting his headstand or skating by the lakeside in Putrajaya.
