About Jamie Chan

Jamie Chan and a deer in Nara, Japan

I haven’t been everywhere,
but it is on my list.

(The Displaced Nation had a lovely interview with me)

Well, let’s start with the fact that I am a polyglot; I speak five languages to varying degrees – more, after my 6th glass of whiskey.

My love for photography started in 2009, and I am blessed to have amazing mentors along the way like Mathias Heng.
As a Visual Storyteller, I deal with visuals before words, visuals – like photography was what brought me back to the Doll Hobby in which they somehow got more expensive over time.

No Foreign Lands is a personal blog focusing on the Photography, Lifestyle and Travel genre. It is where I share the stories and images from my travels, life, and do the occasional media shoutouts to pay for hosting this on the internet.

Before I forget, hello, my name is Jamie, and the tiny island of Singapore is where I am based at the moment.

  1. Your pictures are marvelous. We were last in China in 2007. I would like to visit again and see more. I am now following your site – I am looking forward to seeing more of your photography too!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. Come by again anytime.

  2. Hi Jamie, I absolutely love ur blog. Your pictures bring out powerful emotions and expressions. I’m a teenage amateur photographer(living in Singapore) and was wondering if you could feature some of my pictures in your blog. Any help would be much appreciated 🙂 Thank you so much
