In 1999, Lin Leong moved to London from Macau, in search of self-enlightenment and identity. Lin’s love for the arts got him enrolled at the St. Martin College of Art and Design and London College of Printing. With his camera Lin began capturing the world around him, finding a vision and self-expression through the lenses. Photography became clearly the direction for him to take. Then at the institute Lin found a particular bent for fashion and editorial photography, because of their freedom for innovation and creativity.

As his skill and style matured, Lin’s talent soon became recognized by the industry and in 2002 Elle Magazine published his work. Later on screenwriter Gilbert Adair recruited Lin, his first job as a professional photographer where he had the privilege of learning a lot about the vocation and receiving much guidance from a great master. From then he has worked with hair stylist Martin Galy as in-house photographer, International Hair Dresser Jointly Show, mostly involved in author’s portrait for book jackets, photography for make up and hair and fashion shoots.
