A personal journey that started off when I was a young kid during my primary school days, all in the name of fun and play. As I started upon my journey till today, I can imagine how much it had changed and impacted me over all these years (and still counting). A photography adventure that surpassed my imagination and expectations, definitely lots of sweat, tears, pride, joy and happiness. Made many new friends from both local and international arenas through the love of the art – Photography.
From a humble beginning by making spoilt my Dad’s SLR camera, to my current (almost quiet professional) setup of Canon DSLR and lenses, it had been an adventure that I never regretted that I started upon on Day One. As I slowly learned from my experiences and mistakes over the years of active photography adventure, photojournalism opened up a new realm for me, away from the hustle and bustle, the stress and pressure of the current hectic cut throat society. Exploring, documenting, writing, photographing and sharing, making a difference and paying it forward with my own personal photojournalism adventures. Moving beyond the travel and tourism genres, the areas of photography that I originally started off in (I have to thank National Geographic Magazine for the huge influence).
The adventure took a greater leap when I started to mentor and share my experiences, a skill that dawned upon me that for me to improve my photography (and any other skills in work or life), is to be to mentor, teach, share and impart my skills and knowledge that I currently possess to my friends, followers and disciples/students/juniors. In recent years, I embarked on this new photography journey that helps me to improve my photography skills and knowledge to the next level. This also enlightened me that learning is always and definitely life long and ongoing and there is always something new to learn in photography!
Unlocking small achievements in my photography journey in recent years, sometimes words just can’t describe, maybe through my photographs and stories that I produced. When I was invited to be featured in Canon EOS World Singapore for Photojournalism in March, it was a great honour and a very humbling experience for me. This is definitely not the highest peak, this will spur me on to go for my next peak, even higher!
Here I am, featured on Canon EOS World Singapore – Member Spotlight! I would love to network, share and learn from fellow photographers, do drop me a note and connect with me over my photography sites!
