I grew up in Singapore, a city-state with scarce land and little opportunities for action and extreme sports to gain a following. My passion for photography started in 2005, when I used my fiancée’s camera to take pictures on my long motorcycle rides. I pursued street photography as a hobby after getting my own camera as a wedding gift. In 2016, a friend invited me to take photos for a motocross race in Johor, Malaysia. The new experience was a challenge for me to get creative shots while capturing the fast-paced action of the race. This led me to explore creative inspirations and new techniques to capture images of action sports. I have photographed motocross, skateboard, BMX, parkour, kite surfing and b-boy. 2019 was a break-out year for me, as I entered local and international photography competitions to showcase my work. I’ve won a few local competitions and my works were recognized in Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2019. Although I did not reach the semi-finals, the recognition motivated me to continue photographing the action sports scene in Singapore.
