December is a crazy month to be a Guest Editor at 500px. As the year wraps up we’ll be counting down the top photos in each category and giving kudos all over the place! Who will make it onto that list because this group of editors decided to give them a boost? I guess we’ll find out!

In the meantime, check out the Editors’ Choice page to keep up with these photographers’ picks during the month of December, and don’t hesitate to reach out and ask them to check out your work! You can find all their links below.

Best of luck, and may the force be with you ; )

Sham Jolimie

ShammaI am a 29 year old, award-winning artist from Mauritius, based in Malaysia.

I work in the humanitarian field to ensure that all people can attain the highest possible level of health. In parallel, I am a photographer. I take photographs the same way I eat cake, with great relish and joy.

Photography fits me like a glove. I have always loved art in all its forms; however, photographs have the uncanny ability to convey exactly how I feel. I love how my images can give me something priceless: a sense of purpose. My favourite subjects to photograph are animals, and my rescued cat Aslan.

Questions

Ice cream or pizza?: Both πŸ™‚

Who is your dream dinner date (anyone dead or alive) and why?: Dr. Jane Goodall. She is a legend. She is a pioneer in the field of primatology who made ground breaking discoveries. Discoveries that made us re-think what it means to be a human and our place on the planet.
