  1. Less Is More

    12 Sep 2016

    Melbourne, Australia 2015 The lesser you carry, the further you walk When I first started street photography, all I need was my iPhone and Power Bank to charge up my phone. There was no additional lens, a second camera body or a tripod, and travelling light was essential. The lesser…


  2. You Are What You Learn

    27 Aug 2016

    Melbourne, Australia 2016 While not all great photographers have a photography degree, going to a photography school isn’t a bad choice. I chanced upon this article posted on PetaPixel’s Facebook page with the title, ”Why You Shouldn’t Study Photography and What You Should Do Instead”, written by a street photographer…

    Seeking justice, telling the truth and appealing for peace Saturday Struggle It was a cold morning, about 9 deg and windy, I struggle to get out of my warm bed on a Saturday morning, what was I thinking? If I find it hard to wake up early to attend a…


  4. The Unusual Protest

    24 Jul 2016

    Appealing for peace in South China Sea Before I go further, I have mentioned in my previous blog post that I try to only discuss photography related issue in my blog, but rules are meant to be broken right? However, don’t expect great political views in this blog (and maybe…

  6. Photographing Singapore

    23 Jun 2016

    Chinatown, Singapore Beside visiting my dad in hospital, spending time with family and catching up with friends, the most exciting part of my trip has to be photography.

  7. Be part of my journey

    25 Apr 2016

    I’m not sure how I felt when I clicked on the “confirm” button on a flight ticket website. It has been 3 years since I step foot on my birthplace, Singapore. Since graduating from school, photography has taken up most of my time. Every weekend was a trip to nowhere,…

  11. Juxtaposition

    09 Nov 2015

    The ninth prompt for the CCP Salon Instagram Project is Juxtaposition. And this is my response to it Juxtaposition Juxtaposition is subjective. The fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect, depends on the photographers and viewers culture background and upbringing. Our understanding define what…

    The eighth prompt for the CCP Salon Instagram Project is Radiance. And this is my response to it Radiance Finally, two more prompts to go and I’m done with the project. Not that it’s something I really enjoy doing (photographing in response to a prompt), but I reckon it’s a…

    The seventh prompt for the CCP Salon Instagram Project is Viewpoint. And this is my response to it Viewpoint We all have different viewpoint, about our life, career and many things, about how we feel, what we see and think. Which is why I seldom give my photos a title,…


  14. Fading

    16 Oct 2015

    The sixth prompt for the CCP Salon Instagram Project is Fading. And this is my response to it Fading Fading was a transition tool I always used in video post productions, where you fade in or out from a video clip to another, so I wasn’t sure how to interpret…


  15. Guests

    11 Oct 2015

    The fifth prompt for the CCP Salon Instagram Project is Guests. And this is my response to it Guests Guests always appear as temporary. Humans are guests to planet Earth, because we don’t live forever, Mother Nature is the host. So I can’t include people in my picture for this…

  18. What should I blog about?

    22 Jul 2015

    I’m not good at writing, that’s why I prefer to take pictures. But since I upgraded to the Professional version on Format.com, it includes 1000 pages and blog feature, so I thought might as well make good use of it and document some useful stuff from my photography journey.  If…
