Using the internet you can get to know a lot of people around the world as they share their stories and a piece of their life through their personal social media accounts.
Recently, netizens were raging over this Singaporean photographer who became an internet sensation because of his Instagram photos. He is Chuando Tan, a professional photographer. Netizens had a hard time identifying his age just by looking at his face and body.
Some say he is in his 30’s or 40’s but the photographer is actually in his 50’s! He was born on March 3, 1996, in Singapore. He spent his formative years in Toa Payoh and was the youngest of the three children. His father was also a famous ink artist and painter. Maybe it is the reason why he also loves art.
Chuando is called by his friends CD. He started pursuing arts and creative direction since he started his academic years. He graduated at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. However, he started working as a model in the late 1980’s and became one of the successful models in Singapore. He also became a Mandarin pop singer for a short period of time.
In 1996, he decided to pursue his passion for photography and became a fashion and celebrity photographer. Some of the Asian celebrities he photographed are Shu Qi and Rosamund Kwan. He also worked for international fashion magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Muse, Jalouse, L’Officiel, and Elle.
He created his Instagram account in February 2015 in order to expand his professional network. He shared his photography portfolio and projects in this account and eventually he posted a picture of himself during holidays. His well-trained fit body was a constant feature in these photographs and earned him up to 1.1 M followers on Instagram.
He also became famous overnight after he was featured on Yidian Zixun, a Chinese news website.
CD prefers to live a low-key life as he is shy. He also confessed that after he became famous, he stayed at home for two days because it overwhelmed him.
Having a great body can bring you closer to a lot of opportunities. That is why taking care of yourself and being healthy should be our top priority as a stepping stone on achieving our dreams in life.
