Little Picture in a Big Newspaper

Client Publicity, Editorial, Work in Action

I’m not quite sure if this appears in print or not, but it always satisfying to see my work appear in unexpected places.  Today it is the New York Times.  I have always assumed that the NYT was the Daily Bugle in Superman – that kinda makes me Jimmy Olsen?

Collaborations with DP Architects

Architecture, Stuff I Have Taken, Work in Action

Working with a client over a number of years is like being part of a family.  You get to know their likes and dislikes, their specific needs and vision.  You grow fond of the company and the people in it.  You see them evolve, you see your images used to grow their business, and you become a part of their fabric.

I have been blessed with working with the team at DP Architects since 2011.  We’re now at a point where I know their style, I know what works for them.  I know how they use the images, and how they want to portray themselves to their clients.  Here’s a collection of images we have made together, as partners.

National Parks Singapore Photo Competition

Work in Action

Little known fact about me: I have never entered a photography competition in my life! I’m not sure why.

I guess I figure that every day I work, I am entering a competition, with clients as my judges. And the prize is to be invited to come back for the second and third jobs. In fact, I consider that second call to be my ultimate prize – it means my client feel they got value and my pictures did what they need.

Anyway, what was my point again? Oh yes, one client that calls me back is the National Parks Board, having worked on two of their annual reports, and their submissions for UNESCO submission.

And so in some ways I have won their photo competition. Not because I submitted an image, but because they used one of my images to advertise their latest competition. Sure, there’s no accolade, no name up in lights, but in my heart, I won.

And if you are interested in submitting your photos to their competition, you can apply here!  Must say, Singapore Garden Photographer of the Year has quite a ring to it!

Four Hotels On One Page!

Architecture, Client Publicity, Hotels, Work in Action

This has to be a bit of a record!  Elle Travel this month printed a page with seven images I shot for literally four different hotels!!  Sure, three of them are part of the same stable – Wanderlust, 1929 and The New Majestic, but my picture of the Singapore Sling for Raffles Hotel rounded out the quadrella!!

Now all I have to do is convince the Westin to use me for their hotel shots!!  How about it Westin!!!!?
