A friend of mine turns 30 today. I met Sam Chungyampin five summers ago, when he kindly agreed to share a creative moment with me, by letting me take photos of him at the just-opened Sugar Beach, in Toronto. We bonded over our shared passion for music and film. We became friends, and he even participated in The ehMTee Show in 2011. Sam works as a marketer by day, and divides his time between Singapore, Bangkok, and Toronto. He’s a beautiful man, inside and out. Here are a selection of images from that shoot from August 2010. Happy birthday Sam. Here’s to your continued success and happiness.
