  • I had first joined the photo outing organized by Michael after looking at many of the previous outings he had organized for ClubSNAP Singapore, which looks loads of fun. As it turns out, it was more fun than the pictures. From shooting at bakery way before dawn while the bakers were preparing the first bread to the busy market, Michael just seems to have a stupendous rapport with everyone, it made it really easy and comfortable to go around snapping. Thoroughly enjoyed.

  • I came to know Michael about two years ago as he was in the midst of organizing yet another Johor Bahru photography trip. Jumped on his bandwagon and never looked back. Michael's photo outing has inspired me to explore new photographic ideas and techniques I wouldn't have otherwise. His endeavours thus far, has touched many souls whom he has taken great pictures of, evident from their joys and surprises when they were given their photographs on a returning trip.

I can confirm that he is a man of great integrity, is extremely dedicated to his passion of travel photography, work, and of course his family. We had been travel from nearest JB town to overseas Philippines and explored into villages whereby you can up close with villages. Furthermore, because of his passion of organising travel photography outing, he also earns the trust and friendship from the outing.

  • Michael's photography trip was totally different from others. I can feel more interaction not only among the group but also with local people who we shot. I admired Michael's street photography style because he is not only just taking photo but also learn to understand about the culture, work, religion and language. Through his trips and outings, I have also made many new friends from different working backgrounds, nationalities.

  • It was my 1st trip to Endau Rompin, a national park in Malaysia in 2012. It was also a 1st time that I traveled with like-minded people in a group. I truly enjoyed the trip as I realized that photographers are all nice people with good patience, appreciate art, and enjoy nature. I know that many will continue to appreciate Michael's initiative to provide such photography and networking opportunities. Thanks.

  • Michael is such a friendly and very knowledgeable man. I can see that he put lots of efforts to plan the itinerary that is why we have a chance to visit wonderful places around Asia without any research. His passion of photography is very inspiring. Wherever he goes, it is not only taking pictures but also make friends with local people. This helps him & his fellow photographers very comfortable to capture the beautiful moment of people. I have joined his photography trips for three times and got a lot of wonderful portraits and landscapes.

What I most enjoy is the focus beyond just simply taking great photo but about embracing and learning the culture of the place we visit. At the same time, understanding and connecting the people we meet.

  • I had joined one of Michael's photography trips. His familiarity with the region, out going personality, and passion made the travelling experience a joy. The trip was well planned taking us on a drive on the coastal area of Malaysia. With Michael's lead, we were able to interact with the local villagers and get a sensing of their lifestyle and culture. This is hard to come by with typical travel tours and I truly appreciate the experience as it agrees with my notion of travelling.

The first moment we talked; I could feel his earnest sincerity to make the trip a fun trip. He's a guy with a lot of camera or photography knowledge and he's not shy in sharing all the knowledge to us. Even in our first meeting. That impressed me.
