It's been over a year since I was active in Flickr, and it's time to return to mingle with the masses.
I just accepted over 1000 Contact Requests and have about the same amount to accept in the near future.
I have missed the image industry and the people that add to it on a daily basis.

I always owned a digital P&Shoot camera since 1998, but bought my Canon 20D when it was introduced along with a wide variety of lenses.
Hammered out about 400,000 shots in my excitement of the digital revolution and quickly realized that I was not alone.
Somewhere in the world right now, this very second, someone is buying a camera and of course, millions of shutters are clicking.

"I have come to harness the power of the testimonial...tee hee hee A first for me and I couldn't think of anyone better than the purple dude :)
ViaMoi a true friend for many years. One of the best photographers I know (in the world) with boundless talents not limited to photography. An artist with a fine eye for detail. Always willing to share his knowledge with others while keeping you on your toes with the suspense of what he may share next. A constant source of inspiration and laughs for me :) Oh, and he has a magic balcony full of many creatures that you will often see in his stream:) It's an honor to call him a friend and if I were any better with words, this would be too long to read..lol (blows out of the room in a minty cloud)"

"ViaMoi, You are so talent and having professional skill about photographer. I'm so admire all of your photos, they're so perfect no word to comment. Thank for your sharing your photos in flickr."
July 20th, 2009
JC Shamrock says:
"Simply out of this world photography! I have learned so much just from seeing what and how he captures. Most of the time they just have me in awe, and I have to pick my jaw up off the floor, just so I can comment. Not only that he's an amazingly friendly and takes the time to drop by and comment, even with all his fame. I just hope to be as good as him at photography someday! =)"

"ViaMoi. Phenomenal, Outstanding, one of the best photographers whose work I have ever had the pleasure of viewing: none of that comes close to describing my admiration for this person's work. His photographic skills are truly in a class alone and his visual artistry is nothing short of amazing. However, the best thing about ViaMoi is his unwavering dedication to furthering the skills of others by sharing what he has learned. His tutorials are great and I learn something new every time I read them. The time he is willing to give to those of us who would learn is nothing short of amazing.
And he's a heckuva nice guy, too!
Keep the faith, my Friend in the North!"

"As I know..., ViaMoi is phenomenal photographer. he has a special characteristic for his photos process..., everyone will be dazzled with his work."
April 10th, 2009
"ViaMoi is the heart and treasure of Flickr, He is why we are here. A kind sharing spirit, with the delight in discovery of a child, with the experience of continents and languages, the buffeting of a live making "skin" in the arts. We delight in his company, revel in the tutorials he shares. We are spellbound when first viewing his new images and then are sorry when he is gone."
April 8th, 2009
"What can I possibly add to the testimonials about ViaMoi? He is one of the most amazing and creative photographers on Flickr. Despite the time it must take to do some of his work/art, he also finds time to make valuable comments on my photos and answer technical questions that I might have. He's a phenomenal, original and genuine "out of the box" artist!"

IF any body thinks camera is what makes the pictures go through his photo stream & you would realize it is the pohtographer that matters ultimatily not the gear...
A wonderful person who have matured into a wonderful photographer......
"ViaMoi one of the lovely persons I've met in Flickr!

"ViaMoi is a very ,very talented person..
I truly like watching his photo stream ,it's so fun and beautiful..
He is also one of my best flicker friends..
I wish you all the best my friend ^_^"

"Great great photostream, and very generous with sharing tips and technical info...Inspiring!"
January 27th, 2009
"Be sure to check out ViaMoi's stream as it is rewarding in many ways:
First of all his pictures are really amazing. Somehow he manages to get everything right: from macros to landscapes and everything in between... Not only does ViaMoi have a very good eye for scenes that are worth capturing, but he does know about all the technical stuff as well as you can see browsing through his many renderings in PS. With some pictures he gives you mini-tutorials and if you ask him he will provide a more elaborate one as well...
Secondly, he seems to be a really nice person, who always takes the time to comment on pictures unlike many other people who are signed up on flickr...
So thanks for being one of my premier contacts ;) keep up the good work my friend!"

One of the best photgrapher i've meet (in flickr). Always come with a new ideas in his photography perspective. And the best part is that he often leaves a brilliant commentary on the other's photostream.
Keep up your good job my friend!
Greeting from Malaysia..."

"What can I say about ViaMoi?.....At the least, he knows how to use a camera as well as anyone on here--and how-- but that is selling his work short. VM is also a MASTER technician and his images have an emotional impact too--and that combination makes a great artist, IMHO."
December 9th, 2008
"One of a Kind ... that is ViaMoi. And that IS a compliment.
He is not only a wonderful photographer but also exudes creativity and imagination ... lots of folks do that but not everyone knows how to put those gifts to work in the right programs to obtain results! He does. I suspect his mind never sleeps!
I also find him to be kind and helpful and always ready to share with others the knowledge he has gained through his work.
Pleased to call him a Flickr Friend."
December 3rd, 2008
"This is what Flickr is all about. Amazing work, vivid colors and a keen eye for detail. A real "wow" in this photostream!"
December 3rd, 2008
you amaze me! I love your work, i aspire to be as talented as you.
Such creativity and imagination within your work.
if you ever fancy a junior ;)
thank you for your comments on my work, it means so much more when it comes from an artist like yourself.
love & light

Morten Hoff says:
"In addition to his excellent photographs, ranging from macro to landscape shots and everything inbetween, ViaMoi combines 3D modelling/rendering with Photoshop techniques to create some truelly stunning digital artwork. Make sure to check out his "S2 Wraps" for some highly amazing images! He is constantly moving onward with his techniques and always displays a high level of creativity - as well as a good sense of humour!"
October 13th, 2008
"I just discovered ViaMoi's photostream, but I am already in awe! Especially with the macro series. Good enough to be in magazines or books!"
September 18th, 2008
""I have been looking at your stream and I love it! I like the diversity of your work and glad to see you have various styles. I love the different themes you have going on, along with the humour and the reality of the world. I hope to see more of it :)""

"ViaMoi incredible discovery in Flickr. The amassing talent I see in his creation are superb. I am proud to be one of his contact recently, love to look all his set. One of the Best on Flickr."
January 10th, 2008
"Stu - ViaMoi is such an incredibly talented artist and photographer - and at the same time very friendly and a person that cares and shares :) he not only makes us enjoy his magnificent works of art but shares his techniques like I have seen from very few others.
I am often left speechless by his scarry and provocative art, his macros are really as good as one can ever get, and his comments are always very much to the point and honest. I am so glad to have him among my Flickr friends and will continue to check his stream daily :)"
December 9th, 2007
"Your photography is from the mind, body and soul. $P is extremely,
insanely provocative and true when it comes to his pictures.
The level and depth of honesty that they portray is amazing along w/
the ability to create from the depths of that unknown part of our being,
blows my mind. Never have I met a more true to the core human being such as $P, ViaMoi. BC"

EMP Photography says:
"Just met ViaMoi on Flickr a few weeks ago. I am totally blow away by his artistic and unique style. I've never seen anything like it, each piece is exquisite. If you haven't made ViaMoi a contact you don't wait or you'll miss out.
He is an exceptionally talented artist with a flair for turning simplicity into Remarkable. His work is mesmerizing. He is a bright spot in my Flickr life and I hope to learn from him and his example.
Your Friend Evelyn"
