FAQ - Nathan Chan


What kind of camera do you use?

Funny enough.. almost every single photo on this website currently is shot using a Nikon D750 with either a 20mm 1.8 or 85mm 1.8 with or without a MeFoto Travel Tripod.

Then I gave it all away.
Literally all of it because I felt that God told me to.

So I did. 

Two weeks later I was given a Sony A7S and a 50mm 1.8.

"What the f@7$ how?!"  you might be asking?

Jesus. That's what's up.

How do i afford to travel?

As a full time volunteer serving as a Missionary with Youth With A Mission Queenstown I don't receive a salary from the organization. At all. In fact I actually pay weekly staff fees to do what I do. Because I'm a volunteer I get to fund raise monthly for my staff fees and everyday needs. Friends, family, God and strangers are all apart of my monthly support team and doing life this way, I get to involve many more people into what I'm apart of than if it was simply myself going at it alone. Money comes in from some of the most random places and because it does it allows me to do what I do!

"If you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together."

wait so no salary at all?!

No Salary. Just a whole lot of fundraising and trusting God our Provider!
