Tempus of Time for German Magazine

Commercial, Showcase on March 16th, 2008 No Comments

Did a shoot for a German Luxury Magazine called “How to spend it” shooting for a horological (timepieces) journalist covering the Tempus of Time exhibition hosted by the Hour Glass in Singapore. He gave me a crash course on horology and how this exhibition in Singapore is significant as it’s the one of 3 exhibitions around the world annually. The shoot included an interview with Michael Tay, the Executive Director of The Hour Glass.

EA Rocks Singapore

Corporate, Launches, Photocards, Showcase on March 6th, 2008 No Comments

EA (Electronic Arts) held it’s party showcasing a to-be-released game called Rock Band on the Xbox 360. Guests were invited to the top of Singapore at the Swissotel helipad.


Due to a limitation to the number people allowed on the helipad (74th floor) at any one time, the guests had to be split to have some hands on the games on the 69th floor. I ran up and down so many times I could have done the entire vertical marathon.

Corporate Dragon Boat Relay

Corporate, Photocards, Sports on February 23rd, 2008 No Comments

I came from a college that was really strong at Dragon Boat racing, but I didn’t have the opportunity to participate in the sport then. A good 15 years later, I had the priviledge not only to shoot this sport which is not only a great workout, but a really good sport for camaraderie, team work and team spirit.

A couple of serious dragonboaters decided to organise this relay to promote the sport and invited many corporations to join, this included many of our clients like HSBC,UBS, Shell, Jones Lang Laselle and some more which I may have missed. Teams turned up early in enthusiasm for their warmups and a quick introduction to dragonboating for the first timers.

Dr Lam Pin Min was invited as a guest of honour and everyone was happy to know that he used to do dragonboating when he was in college. (National Junior College I heard).

 Organising Committee and Dr Lam Pin Min

There were a few expat teams who took part as well including a Canadian and a German team.

Everyone was pumped with energy as they prepared for the first leg.

I expected it to be a standard, not too exciting dinner .. but kudos to the organising committee, everybody enjoyed the dinner and had lots of fun! They arranged for photocard holders like these to keep the photocards taken during the night.

 A mobile studio was setup as well to let guests take the photos as they walk in for registration.

Live projection of the photos entertained the guests as candid and posed shots appeared of themselves and their friends.
