Biography - Cameron Campbell 康文林

Thanks for visiting my website.

I first started dabbling in photography in the late 1990s, when we bought a Canon Rebel at a Costco, and took pictures during our hikes and camping trips.

In 2001, we made the transition to digital photography, after our son was born, and we wanted to take pictures to preserve memories. We bought a Canon G2. Later, we also acquired a Canon Rebel T2i, and a Canon 20D. We eventually replaced the G2 with a G7, and then an S100 and then an S120. More recently, we moved to a Canon 6D and the remarkable Canon G9X.

I am fortunate in that my job as a professor gives me opportunities to travel. I like to take pictures when I am on the road. If I have an evening free in a city that I haven't visited before, I like to get out and take pictures. I actually have lots of pictures from trips that I have yet to upload, and I will be adding these older collections as time allows.

I especially enjoy taking pictures at night, in cities. This may reflect the fact that most of the time, the only opportunity I have to take pictures when I am traveling is in the evening, when I have free time. I'm inspired by Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, and my favorite theme is isolated, lonely figures in brightly lit settings in otherwise dark urban streetscapes.

I do like taking pictures of deserts and other natural settings, but quite frankly, the results are not as good as what others can achieve, so I haven't been uploading as many of those pictures.

If you would like to use any of my pictures, please let me know. You should be able to order prints directly from the website.

If you are a non-profit, especially an educational institution or an NGO, and would like permission to use any of my images on your website or in your printed materials, please contact me for permission. I'm generally happy to oblige, but please email me. I also ask that you credit me as the photographer, and if you use one of my photographs on a website, please link to this site. Most of the time, I am happy to provide a high-resolution original. If you want to embed any of my pictures in your website via a link, that is of course fine, but I would ask that you also identify my site as the source of the picture, and provide a link to the site.
