ABOUT JAMES TAN

“James why don’t you try your hand at printmaking? You seem to have the correct temperament for it” - this was what the late Master Photographer William Ng said to James in 2007 when he first attempted his MPA qualifications. The qualification wasn’t easy, but he managed to secure a double promotion by way of his architectural photography craft. Not wanted to rest on his laurels, James embraced the challenge and began this new journey almost straightaway, putting his successful photography career on the backburner on a decade-long quest to master the craft of printing. A craft that he unintentionally started long ago in 1993 when photoshop first came to the windows platform and him getting his hands on Epson’s first 720dpi printer.

Back then he taught himself photoshop as a means to make better graphics for his games, and went on to develop an interest in photography because a close friend. After army, James apprenticed in a commercial studio and was rapidly promoted to a full-fledged commercial photographer while doing retouching work. On a flip side, James was also specially trained as a photography judge by the MPA in the UK after he got his Fellowship, and have been on the international judging circuit regularly. This enabled him to develop an innate understanding of how other photographers conceptualize and craft their images, and how to analyze them from different perspectives.

So having come full circle back to printing, he realized it is the missing end point of photography that the modern digital photographer have neglected.

Throughout his printmaking career, he has been the personal printmaker of numerous notable photographers and individuals, and because of his craft and meticulousness, is often entrusted to handle high stakes projects that require nothing less than perfect prints.

James now teaches photography, printmaking, and color management for various institutions and establishments internationally. He also prints and produces exhibitions for artists and photographers. And having been invited to join the International Color Consortium as an independent member, James is one of the most sought-after cross-disciplinary consultants in the region regarding photography, digital imaging, printing process, display technology, exhibitions, and lighting analysis.
