Photographer, physicist, philosopher, horologist—these are just a few of the many facets that define the indefatigable Ming Thein. Armed with a camera since age 16, his photographic career has spanned a wide range of subjects and an even more impressive reach. His extensive musings on photography, as catalogued on his eponymous blog, amount to more than 1,800 articles, two million words, 200 hours of educational video, a hundred thousand comments, and an enviable recommended gear list, leading us to invite him to contribute as our latest B&H Creator of the Week.
