Portrait by Vincent Lee

Dan Lum freelance photographer & content creator based in Vancouver, British Columbia. He attributes his love for photography to his grandfather, a World War II-era photographer. Growing up, Dan never went on family road trips since they chose to fly to destinations instead. “I missed all the sights in between. I’m trying my best now to capture those missed opportunities.”

His passion for the creative led Dan to delve into visual storytelling through photography, video and graphic design. In 2012, he sensed a new calling. He left his “safe” job of seven years as creative director, to become a better photographer and storyteller. Drawn to visual storytelling and social media, Dan saw Instagram as a natural fit, where he currently has a large and engaged following.

Dan’s passion for visual storytelling allows him to capture the essence and beauty of his surroundings. Whether shooting dense street scenes in Hong Kong or the vastness of the Grand Canyon, his goal is to successfully convey the story.
