In The Name of God, The Most Gracious and Most Merciful. Lyle Ham is a Filipino Photographer, Videographer and Web Designer based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

It was 1997 when Lyle first learned the basics of HTML and Web Design. His love for traditional art and music in his childhood drove him to pursue learning digital art. His lack of formal training didn’t stop him but instead he utilized the existence of the world wide web which helped him develop his skills in both front end web design and back end programming. May 2007, he grabbed the opportunity of flying to Dubai, United Arab Emirates and eventually ended up working as a Web Designer for a reputed real estate company in Dubai.

Lyle Ham - Filipino Photographer, Videographer and Web DesignerDriven by an incredible passion for self-expression through art, a few years later he ended his curiousity in Photography which acquainted him with several professionals in the field that eventually became his mentors and while a few led him to meet new friends. But because photography is an art that is not new to Lyle (since his late father was also a hobbyist and an enthusiast in the same field), it wasn’t that hard for him to learn the basics. Persistent and curious by nature, after learning and apprenticeships for more than half a year, with the blessings and encouragement of some of his mentors, he started to take freelance jobs in Photography. Over time, he discovered his interest in events, weddings/engagements, and portraits.

Over time, as the digital media is rapidly evolving and the demand of the clients are also increasing. This is where Lyle decided to take the next challenge; learning Videography and Cinematography. It was a very fortunate event when he met the award-winning short film director and cinematographer, Patrick Fronda, an educator of Cinematography and Films in a prestigious school in Dubai and Franell Camero, a veteran Events Videographer who later on became his mentors til date. Later on, Lyle was able to produce his own short films and highlight videos with the guidance of his mentors.

Lyle currently works as a freelancer for government, semi-government and private companies and individuals. If he is not holding his camera, he is either busy learning new stuffs on the industry on the internet or playing online games such as Diablo, World of Warcraft, Modern Warfare, Battlefield and League of Legends.
