Shooting the world, one country at a time
I’m Adrian Seah, photographer, advertising creative director, avid traveller and all round camera geek. I travel the world with my camera, trying to capture a fraction of the weird and the wondrous people and places I come across and share them on Handcarry Only.
I’m fascinated by everything and inspired by everything. My first trip abroad was when I was 3, and I’ve pretty much not stopped travelling since.
I strongly believe that travel is the best education anyone can have.
I try to sneak away to somewhere new and exciting every chance I get, the world is just simply too big and diverse not to explore.
It’s such a zen thing, the more you know, the more you know you don’t know. Travel puts me in my place, it reminds me of how big and spectacular the world we live in really is, of how colourful and diverse people are, but yet how similar and intrinsically linked we all are as well.
I was from Singapore, lived in London and now based in Hong Kong, where I run a creative video production agency Propagandeur. I make commercials and content for brands and a wide range of tourism boards and I never forget how fortunate I am to be doing what I’m doing. I also contribute to CNN Travel and awesome stock photo agency Stocksy.
