The Band of Photographers behind the scenes (DBS Marina Regatta 2013)

Inspired by fellow photographer Callan’s post, I decided to say a big thank you to the band of photographers (and the DBS crew) behind the scenes of the recent DBS Marina Regatta 2013 that we covered, documented, photograph many different scenes, angles, perspectives, emotions and moments of DBS Marina Regatta 2013. This was a great compilation and collage from the works of the various photographers’ skills and field of expertise.

Since I was mainly covering the sports segment Dragon Boating, there weren’t many chances for me to capture my fellow photographers in action. This was also my first time meeting Mr Brown and Bryan! Working together with such a talented band of photographers, it was indeed a great honour!  When I was shooting the DBS Marina Regatta 2013, I had a great time shooting in the event and with the Band of Photographers, even though I was carrying about 6-7kg of camera gear for 3 out of 4 days! We all chatted when we were able to catch a short break together and doo check out their works on their websites too!

Here are some of my photographs of them in action, looking back at my photographs, I should have taken more of my fellow photographers in action!

DBS Marina Regatta 2013 – Bay Festival 24th & 25th May

The DBS Marina Regatta 2013 rocked Marina Bay on the 18th and 19th May 2013, with high octane Dragon Boating sporting actions and festivities around the Social Enterprise Carnival and Regatta Village. The activities did not end here on the 18th and 19th May, instead the activities and festivities continued with the Bay Festival happening on the 24th and 25th May 2013. Both days were filled with exciting and interesting activities on the water and on the land.

On the 24th May, there were Invitational Dragon Boat Races from the Schools, Community and Open Categories. This was a good time for them to participate and have fun in Dragon Boating competition. The atmosphere was great, fun and a friendly sporting carnival for people of all ages and nationalities. The Social Enterprise Carnival was there and there were arts and crafts, circus acts, food and beverage and games for those enjoying the festivities on the land. I went back to Marina Promontory to capture the Invitational Dragon Boat Races, choosing different locations and angles to capture Dragon Boating sporting actions at Marina Bay. It was great to see many different colours just like the DBS Marina Regatta 2013 International and competitive races the weekend before that. When the Invitational Dragon Boat Races finished in the evening, the attention was turned towards the DBS Marina Regatta Drum Challenge Finals. The Drum Challenge Finals was a great spectacle and enjoyment for the spectators. With their noise level and enthusiasm, they definitely gave DBS Marina Regatta 2013 Bay Festival a big shout out!

On the 25th May, it was Water Craft by the Bay, a time for the public to experience sailing, ocean kayaking and Dragon Boating in the Marina Bay. Participants of young and old were enthusiastic and excited, trying out the different sailing activities available. They had a fun and leisure sea sports time in the Marina Bay. The Social Enterprise Carnival was around too for the public to enjoy the festivities and fun on the land, allowing the public to enjoy leisure and recreational fun on the land or in the Marina Bay! With all the various water and land activities and events, it was definitely a day of family and fun activities at Bay Festival 2013! In the late afternoon, I joined fellow photographer friends Weili, Callan, AikBeng,Bryan and Ivan at Singapore’s first Phonegraphy Awards for DBS Marina Regatta 2013 Story Awards. Callan, AikBeng, Bryan and Ivan were part of the panel discussion on stage to share about their photography experiences, their style of photography and their tips on how to tell compelling stories via Instagram. Listening to my friends, the expert photographers, sharing their stories, it was definitely an eye-opener and a great insight.
