I am a full-time Videographer/Editor based in Singapore. I’ve been working here for more than 2 years. Aside from my full-time job in filming, I have a strong passion for photography and music. I’ve been doing this since 2010. I didn’t take a media course but believe it or not, I was a nursing student before. Weird transition but once you know that you have a passion for something, you gotta chase it and try to be good at it.
2. How would you define photography or videography?
It’s the process of capturing a certain moment in your personal creative perspective. A visual and creative interpretation of a personal experience. Living in a modern world with fast technology and selfie generation/social media these days, we sometimes forget the real meaning and essence of it. People have different perspectives in this craft. Every time I shoot, I would remind myself that I need to capture real moments, feelings and emotions plus art. 🙂
3. Do you have any unforgettable experience or scenario with your clients?
Every time I encounter a bridezilla. 😀 During the entire day when the bride is grumpy and moody because she does all and it doesn’t delegate the work, she would feel uncomfortable and it would reflect on the photos and videos. I understand planning your dream wedding is so stressful, however, I encourage every bride-to-be to get a wedding planner involved in the process to have a stress-free.
4. Can you provide 5 tips for every beginner who’s eager to learn photography or videography?
Invest in a good equipment and watch reviews/guides.
Try listening to music when you’re shooting alone, it will boost up your mood.
Light is your best friend. Always find a way where the light is.
Location and venue define the environment of your photo.
Always find inspiration and keep yourself motivated.
5. Things you’ve learned and would want to share.
Everyday is an opportunity to learn and have fun at the same time. Going for a solo photo walk will help you to get familiar using your gear. Engaging with the people that you are shooting is a good practice. Get lost and try something different.
