Lance Lee, Fashion & Documentary Photographer, Curator & Instructor for Photography

    Lance Lee is an extremely versatile photographer who excels in opposing disciplines - Photojournalism and Fashion Photography.

    Each genre requires very different mindsets and approaches. His experience in mastering both makes him a very good teacher in both aesthetical and technical aspects of most photography subjects.


    In photojournalism, documentary, portraiture and news photography, Lance works as an independent individual to capture decisive moments as he waits patiently for events to unfold spontaneously.


    In fashion and advertising work, he leads a team to conceptualise, direct and execute creative photographic projects.


    Lance's fashion images and portraits have been widely published in magazines such as Her World, ICON, Citta Bella, Female, Style, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Women's Weekly.


    His career highlights include photography for Singapore's Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew's book "Keeping My Mandarin Alive" and first Singapore Idol Taufik Bautisah's debut album "Blessings".


    His documentary photos of the SARS crisis in 2004 are published into two books "The Silent War" and ">38ºc Remembering Sars". The images were also exhibited at the Singapore History Museum.
    Two of his personal photo projects, "Migrant Workers" and "Transsexuals", have been exhibited frequently in museums and art galleries. The latter was published as a best-selling photo coffee table book "My Sisters: Their Stories". Selected fine art prints from the "Transsexual" series are also collected by museums such as Houston Museum of Fine Arts.

    A well-travelled photographer, commercial & advertising work has brought him round the globe to places like Argentine, Cuba, Mexico, India, Bangladesh and most Asian countries.

    Lance has a passion for teaching photography and he loves sharing his knowledge and experience. He is currently taking a sabbatical from studio and commercial work to spend more time in teaching. He travels frequently to conduct photography workshops as well as to further his personal photo projects.


    Lance is currently teaching in Beijing and Hong Kong.
