I am a freelance wedding photographer in Singapore; my full-time job is a computer programmer. I joined the photography community in Singapore to be inspired in all genres of photography and now we're settling in Winnipeg, along with my gears.
My wedding shoot experience began when our group invited famous wedding photographers from the Philippines (MangoRed) to conduct workshops in Singapore. When MangoRed announced that they have upcoming shoots in Singapore and participants from the workshops can submit their portfolios, I straightaway tried my chances. Fortunately, I was selected to be their 2nd shooter! So from that time onwards, I managed to adopt the shooting styles of MangoRed, which also built my confidence in shooting weddings. Later on, I gained an understanding of different cultures through shooting Chinese, Indian, Malay, Muslim, Hindu, Punjabi and Christian weddings.
To keep myself motivated, I buy books, watch films and travel. One of my favorite travel experiences is when I visited Sri Lanka and met the children of Haputale. Here is the link to my story: https://www.marchtomars.com/the-pen.html. I also experienced the freedom and confidence to travel the world. My travel to Turkey was inspired by the movie Taken 2 (Liam Neeson).
Photography for me is personal. The moment I have a chance to capture stories and show my art bring so much happiness.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Weddings. I always shoot based on my client's mood and theme, applying creativity on the location shoot, available natural light and combining the lines and colors of the scene by capturing their best features, emotions, happiness and love.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
My photo was published in Asian Photography Magazine in July 2011. One of my weddings and engagements shoots were featured in Singapore and Philippine wedding blogs.
