Jino Lee

Jino Lee is an international award winning travel & destination photographer.
Once a night owl having spent over 15 years as a musician and sound engineer, he traded late nights for early mornings and took up photography in 2003. He finds inspiration in photographing people, culture and destinations and that motivates him to pursue travel photography. As an assignment travel photographer, he photographs a broad range of subject that is related to the travel and tourism industry. His pictures centered around human interest, with stories building upon and within each location.

Jino had the honour to be one of the judges for National Geographic Channel's photography contest and his works have been featured in several airlines and travel trade publications. He is a contributor for Getty Images, Stocksy United, Ink Global and appointed destination photographer for SilkAir.
Besides travel & destination photography, he offers commercial photography in the hospitality and maritime industries.

Kerry Cheah

Kerry is an observer of light, shadow and everything in between the real moments in our lives that make us laugh, cry, shout and cry again. She loves colour, drama, and visual complexity.   

She is a professional family photographer and filmmaker specialising in intimate, personalised story-telling sessions built around clients’ daily lives.  She set up her own business, Red Bus Photography, in 2014 and can often be found in her clients’ homes.  

Kerry is a mother to two irrepressible, oftentimes impossible young boys, and has been photographing them daily since 2015. This project has been her biggest source of artistic growth and frustration to-date. While her personal experience makes photographing other families a natural fit, she hopes to bring the same ethos of finding meaning in authentic lives to her social documentary work.

Ng Ngok Swee

Ngok Swee first ventured into photography with a film rangefinder in his secondary school days. Soon enough, he was spending much of his time in the darkroom, developing mainly black and white photographs. After retiring from the workforce several years ago, Ngok Swee decided to devote his time to pursuing his two passions: travel and photography.
Surreal images taken during his trip to North Island, New Zealand, made it to the top 10 finals in the Sony World Photography Awards, and were featured in the Sony Alpha Magazine.
Several of his photos were also selected for publication in the Leica User Forum (LUF) Charity Books 2010 and 2012, while a photo taken at the Danakil Depression, Ethiopia, was featured in the CNN’s Top 25 Travel Photos of 2014.

Tan Chin Hock

A financial adviser by profession, Chin Hock did not consider photography as a lifelong passion until the birth of his first child in 2011. The father of three and author of photobook “Father (父), Mother (母)” started out with the Sony Nex 5N and has since created unlimited evocative and everlasting memories for many families.

A familiar face in the community, his articles on family, parenting and financial literacy have been featured across numerous newspapers, parenting and social media portals. The portraiture photographer enjoys capturing spontaneity moments among individuals especially family members.

Darren Francis

To Darren Francis, photography is more than just clicking the shutter button. It’s a creative outlet -- one that allows him to bring his imagination to life. As a perfectionist, he strives to always capture a better photo than his last.
Darren started dabbling in photography as a child and was a member of his school’s photography club in his teens. He graduated from Nanyang Polytechnic with a Diploma in Engineering Informatics and later from Monash University with a Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology.
Having had a strong interest in both visual and performance arts from an early age, Darren decided to follow his heart by taking on photography assignments of different genres in 2008. By the following year, he had gone pro. Darren now provides a wide range of photography services and is also the lead photography trainer for SDW and Sapura Imaging Singapore.
