Andrian Tam has always been an enthusiastic driver on cameras. He does photography as much as videos too. Using a Canon EOS 500D, he uses his gadget to take terrific photographs with his goal of "Capturing the moment". He has started photography since he was 15 by just using a compact camera or simple point and shoot cameras. 3 years of suffering with low standard cameras has led him to learn deeply about photography to the extent that he can manipulate the auto mode of a camera and getting it to a custom setting that he wants.

Andrian also did video productions and editing since he was 14. Starting from school level, his experience till today still grows, from live events to sketches and even CGI production. Andrian works with various groups of people so he doesn't have a fixed team yet. At the age of 18, Andrian started Tam's Up Productions, a freelance production that also wishes to capture special moments and to also create a medium or library to keep his works as a hobbyist. Andrian is willing to cover events with certain charges, depending on event settings.
Here are a few examples of his work (from http://www.youtube.com/user/utmastertam2);
This video is a live recording of a staged performance for a competition. Using a Canon 500D and 550D, Andrian successfully got 2 good angles of this performance. One camera was mounted on a tripod and another was handheld. A Zoom H1 handy recorder was used to record the audio.
