I am Jimmy Tan. I make videos, shoot pictures and climb rocks.
I started off documenting my travel experiences with a compact camera when I was young. It was not much then, but that chunk of metal got me thinking about framing my subjects and composing meaningful narratives out of the shots. Gradually, the tool has empowered me to translate ideas, imagination and messages through videos and photos.
These days I go around with heavier set-ups, up on the rock wall, through the rugged trails and on the wedding aisle. I like to shoot landscape, wild moments and beautiful stories.
Riveting and unique at each piece, I keep my shoots real and photojournalistic, while striking a balance with editorial edge and elegance in cinematic. Story is mandatory.
I am based in Singapore. But travel frequently to climb new rocks and get fresh perspectives.
