Singapore is one of the most cosmopolitan and beautiful cities in the world. Stunning skyscrapers adorn this tropical financial hub and create a perfect backdrop for a personal photo shoot. Just what Sergiy was looking for!
The Lion City
The name for Singapore comes from the Malay term for the town it was founded on of Singapura. And the Malay term was taken from the Sanskrit one which literally means ͞lion town.͟ While the lions only exist at the Singapore Zoo the name stuck and Singapore is known as the Lion City as well as the Garden City given how easily plants grow in the lush tropical climate.
Singapore is an archipelago, a collection of 63 islands in the Singapore Strait. It was established as a British colony in the 1800’s through treaty and purchase from a local sultan. From there Singapore slowly grew into the global financial and trade center that it is today. Flights from all over the world land and transit through the Singapore Airport.
True to its international trading hub origins it uses four very diverse languages as its official ones: English, Malay, Chinese, and Tamil, with English being the lingua franca for most of the population. Each of these founding cultures has also left imprints in the cuisine of the country. Singapore’s street food is world renowned for being diverse, affordable, and incredibly delicious.
The city really does offer something for everyone, no matter what you’re into. At first, nature lovers may feel left out; with 95% of the original rainforest gone, Singapore seems the very definition of urban. But even nature lovers can find peace and joy in the city’s Botanical Gardens and the Singapore Zoo.
Taking a Walk by the Waterfront
Sergiy has spent enough time in Singapore to know that it’s a prime location for a photo shoot. Everywhere you look, scenic skyscrapers abound and the beautiful waters of the Indian Ocean lap at the shore. What better place could there be for an international personal photo shoot?
Manosh is a local photographer who regularly shoots destination and portrait photography for visitors and locals alike. When Sergiy reached out to him they were able to coordinate to decide exactly what Sergiy was looking for. Sergiy was looking for something to enhance his own personal brand. As we see in the photographs he even brings along his own Sony mirrorless camera for the shoot.
This just goes to show just how valuable having a photographer for personal portraits is. Even though Sergiy is no stranger to using a camera it’s just not the same as having a photographer in place with the right perspective. Manosh and Sergiy worked together to capture stellar images that show both Sergiy and Singapore in a flattering light.
Mixing it up at a mall in Singapore was also a success. The diversity of lines and patterns made for intriguing images along with Sergiy’s poses. Manosh does an excellent job of making it seem as if Sergiy has the entire city to himself! We don’t see a single person in any of these images even though Singapore is one of the most crowded cities in the world!
That’s what working with a professional photographer gets you! So next time you want a portrait shoot, no matter where you are in the world, consider partnering with a local vacation photographer!
