Sam is a guy who has the talent to produce world class results and the cash to back it up by going anywhere anytime at any cost. That combo is killer and why Sam can't be beat.  Big grin

Sam is a nice guy and takes good photos, but god he is not! Niether is anyone who takes pictures for that fact. We all have different photography skills and level but to classify someone as god, that is rediculous.

oh, you should see his face when he stands next to a Canon 1VHS shooting a roll of slides in 3 seconds flat- he looks down at his cameras and frowns. I've seen it with my own eyes

The thing that makes Sam unique is that unlike other photogs, he doesnt always shoot the same types of photos, like he doesnt take a thousand side on shots and upload them, his are unique.

Hey Sam, do you shoot anything other than aircraft? Surely you don't limit yourself to just aviation, seeing you have been a few places.

Hi, I have done a few landscape and scenery, but most restricted to point and shoot only. Nothing really spectacular, I like to combine some sightseeing with plane spotting when abroad.


Do you get any of your photos published for magazines Sam?


My pics have not been publised in many Enthuasist/spotting magazine lately, except few on Airliner World (like GKirk point out) and Airliners. I have been concentrate on the industrial magazine/editorial/newsletter, such as flight international, Payload Asia, Asian Aviation etc. I am providing service with urgent oncall. Received quite many photo request via A.net search interface, some valable business and contact generated from here!  Smile

Next month on Airliner World, please watch out for some LAX photo spread.

Of course I am not god or greatest photographer, thanks for the jokes and compliments. I think if you are persistent enough, no reason you can't be success. You guys may see me base somewhere in Asia for later next year.

Hi there!

I am just picking up this post....  Smile

I have to agree, Sam is one very lucky guy! He also takes some damn good shots where ever he goes!

It's always good keeping up on the Sam Chui uploads to see where he has been recently, as its nice to view the variety he shoots too!

I shall be looking out for the Airliner World - LAX photo spread as well! I also look forward to bumping into him down in SYD/LAX etc etc etc... If I'm lucky enough!  Big thumbs up

Good work Sam, like a pimp says to his hoes "Keep 'em coming!".

Regards,

Justin  Big grin

Sam, I have to say I really love your work! I didn't realize anyone travelled and photographed as much as you do. It's a little harder for some of us to get onto the Iranian birds... Wink/being sarcastic That photo you took on approach to Tehran on board the 707 (Photo ID: 593676)...absolutely stellar, my friend. I've got to travel like that someday...maybe when I upgrade my camera! Very nice, Sam!

Sam Chui indeed has a lot of very nice aircraft photo, but so do many other aviation photographers here. I hope I will be better photographer in the (near) future. I will buy the Canon EOS300D camera somewhere this year. Hopefully that will give me better quality photos as well  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Well, thank you for all your time replying it, I really appreciate all of your inputs. I ain't any better than others, just happen to be lucky and shared a lot of passion in plane spotting. I would really like to personally thank all of you who have helped me and supported me in the past in person if I can. If there is anything I can help, feel free to let me know.
