Robin Yong is a doctor specialising in Travel Medicine. He offers proper travel advice and vaccinations for travellers. During his free time, he travels overseas widely on an average of 18 trips a year. In the past 12 months alone, he has travelled to Austria, Belgium, Bhutan, Cambodia, Canary Islands, Cuba, France, Gibraltar, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Monaco, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, and Thailand.
Still an amateur photographer, he started taking photography more seriously after meeting up with his teacher Jim Zuckerman at a photography workshop in Venice 3 years ago. His forte is talking to the locals and photographing them. He is especially delighted if they are dressed in their national costumes. His favourite subjects include the Venetian Masked models and the tribespeople of the Omo Valley. Recently, he has been inspired by the works of Hollywood photographer, Greg Norman.
What's unique with Robin is that he neither owns a camera nor uses flash in his photography - instead he loans different cameras on different trips from his friends and relatives, preferring to polish his art through working with natural lightings and challenges himself on skills than reliance of any particular equipment.
