Maxby Chan , an Administrator of PhotoMalaysia.com, is a dedicated B&W photographer. Apart from teaching and writing photography articles, Maxby regularly gives talks, reviews photography equipment, and conducts street shooting walkabouts. He also teaches film processing & printing. He has been shooting for more than 35 years and is passionate about sharing his vast knowledge in digital and film photography.
Maxby has organised more than 5 photography exhibitions. The latest was the Guerrilla Photography Exhibition at Avenue K, KL involving no less than 250 photographers and 3,000+ photo exhibits. It was the largest photo exhibition ever held in Malaysia.
He has been selfless in committing his time to promote and improve photography standards for the 70,000+ members of PhotoMalaysia.com and PhotoSafari.com.my.
Yusuf and Maxby conduct regular Photosafari Experiences nicknamed PMPE (for Photomalaysia Photosafari Experience), a photography program consisting of 2 days of classroom lectures, followed by 5 to 21 days of hands-on photography experience in exotic locations overseas, for more than three years. The objective is to bring beginners in photography up to speed, and intermediate shooters to excellence. These overseas photosafari trips to exotic locations have been very popular among amateur and advanced photographers, probably because they are photography excursions organized by photographers for photographers. To date, nearly 35 PhotoSafaris have been organized, benefiting close to a thousand participants, with around 35% of attendees being repeat attendees, testimony to their claim that Each PhotoSafari Experience is Different. Every PhotoSafari sees participation by both local and foreign photographers. Maxby can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
