Lim Tian Seng

Malaysia

As a photographer, the Sony G Master is my third eye. They are the best lenses that empower me to deliver high-quality images for my commercial work in product and portrait photography.

Born in the artistic center of Kota Bharu (Kelantan) in 1960, Lim Tian Seng—better known as Sifu Lim—has been an artist since he was a young boy.

Naturally, he walked the path of an artist and enrolled to study art at the Malaysia Institute of Art after completing high school. During his student days at the MIA, he made art to help pay his student expenses. Those years of hardship taught Sifu Lim to persevere. As an artist, photography came naturally to him.

Sifu Lim formed his studio, Studio 88, in 1988. It has been serving clients and continuously producing extraordinary work since its inception.

In his leisure time, Sifu Lim photographs everything. He documents the rich cultures and traditions of Malaysian life, be it in the concrete jungles of Kuala Lumpur or the alluring villages of Kelantan, a place he holds dear.

He believes that everything in life is about art, and that without art, there is no life. To him, the lines between reality and the dreamy, imaginative world are at times blurred.

Sifu Lim continues his mission to take life as an art form. He shares his vision with everyone, imparting knowledge and wisdom to the people he connects with, especially the younger generations that will form the future art community.
