First and foremost, I am not a full-time photographer, I am not a professional photographer. I am just a hardcore photographer who loves photography, travel, sports and events!
Photography is one of the most beautiful and interesting art form in its visual sense, it can also be provocative and photojournalistic at all levels, it also allows me to appreciate arts in its other forms, such as paintings, abstract art, performances etc etc … The photography style defines each and every photographer, uniquely and individually, sometimes the photographer knows his/her photography style, sometimes, he/she might not know at all. At times, it takes another photographer to help define and update another photographer what’s their style of photography. It’s so special and unique to each individual photographer.
Looking back and reflecting my year 2011 in Photography, there have been great moments/opportunities to be invited and be part of major events photography, armed with media access privileges, with many many big thanks to my networks of PR companies, business partners, friends and alumni groups.
– OCBC Cycle 2011
– Bare Your Sole 2011
– Singapore Social Media Day 2011
– Canon Lion City Cup 2011
– VAS SG Beach Volleyball Open Championships 2011
– SCC Twenty-20 Cricket Tournament 2011
– Singapore Handball League Tournament 2011
– SCC Rugby 7s 2011
– 20th WOC World Orchid Conference Singapore 2011
– AAS 56th Anniversary Gala Dinner 2011 – Official Photographer
– Special Preview – Gardens By The Bay
Without a doubt, the access to the above list of events were a huge highlight for me, it’s not just about being very happy to be able to shoot at those events, it’s also a small little testimonial for me on how far my photography, social media networking and writing, my 3 in 1 strengths had brought me today.
As for my skills and knowledge in photography, even though I have a certain level of knowledge and skills in photography, there is still a lot for me to learn, there’s always something new to learn in photography, from skills to styles to techniques. Learning is a life-long journey and I must always keep on learning – this will also and must be applied to my photography!
The year 2011 is also a year that brings me closer to the heartlands, back to the roots and be involved in some form of community activism, with my personal projects on
– Old Places Singapore
– We Support The Green Corridor in Singapore
– Heritage, Culture, Preservation and Conservation
What defines my photography style? Ironically, maybe I know, maybe I don’t know, maybe it needs another photographer to give me a hint ?
Reflecting back at my photography in 2011, here’s my collection of photographs taken in the year 2011, shared on my Flickr ! Happy viewing !
Looking ahead for my photography in 2012, what lies ahead ? Well, I will do my sharing after I go away into my deep thoughts, thinking, “digging” through my heart and soul and brains of course, before writing it down. Stay tuned !
I would like to wish all my friends, partners, supporters, partners, readers etc etc … Happy New Year 2012 ! Good luck & all the best in the Year 2012! With blessings, great health & career growth!Good luck & all the best in the Year 2012! With blessings, great health & career growth! May your photography grows exponentially too!
