It's just before the clock strikes midnight and I am on the 21st storey of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Singapore with two wire photographers and a photographer from the local newspaper waiting for the fireworks to go off. It's the second time in two years that I've been commissioned by the Esplanade Theatres on the Bay to capture their New Year's fireworks display, and after all the cameras were set up and ready for the shoot, we had some downtime to reminisce about 2013.
We have to thank all our friends, fans and clients who have supported us over the past year, and give thanks for the numerous projects that we've had the fortune to work on! Social media outreach projects with DBS and the Ministry of National Development amongst others, documentaries (some for commercial clients) work on oil palm plantations in Sabah, 7th Month Getai shows as well as annual reports and ad campaigns for various companies and institutes and being enlisted as a Samsung Smartphotography professional have pretty much kept us swamped through much of 2013. That said, being busy is a "problem" that I refuse to complain about!
There are too many great people and clients to list here so a blanket THANK YOU will have to do for now. Suffice to say that if 2014 is in anyway similar to 2013, then I can't wait to get started on this year!
Look forward to more updates, news, reviews and random thoughts right here!
