What you'll do

The entire activity will take 2 hours where we will go to three different trademark locations of Singapore to capture stunning photos while experiencing a professional photoshoot.

1) Merlion
Here at the Merlion, since it's outdoors with little to no shade, I will show you how to pose in natural lighting and control exposure, aperture and shutter speed to capture the perfect shot.

2) Helix Bridge / Marina Bay Sands
Here, I will show you how to frame shots under shade to make use of natural lighting to brighten up your photos. Framing is very important when you have a large background, such as the Marina Bay Sands hotel behind the Helix Bridge.

3) Gardens by the Bay
At the gardens by the bay, I will demonstrate the use of wide-angle photography and how to fit your subject as well as your landscape into the photo. Fitting large objects such as the Supertrees can be daunting but if you know the tricks.

Not only will you get a glimpse of DSLR photography, but you'll also be able to get some lovely photos at these locations. At the end of the entire experience, I will send you the RAW photos as well as edited shots of the photos via Google Drive. It’s down to a choice of whether you wish to pick or you can let me choose what I think are great.

*Late Policy: Please be mindful of others in the experience and be on time. If you’re the only guests I will wait for 15 minutes.

Hey! My name is Jonathan and I'm a Singaporean who has lived in Korea for 6 years. I have been doing photography since 2011 and have done it professionally as a freelancer since 2014. I primarily shoot portrait photos and close proximity shots so I work best with solo travelers, couples, small-scale families and groups of friends. I have done a lot of themed photoshoots as well as brand advertisements and I can frame a subject and have them pose well.

I'm a person who's very bright and I love to meet people from all different countries and cultures thus I signed up to be a host here on AirBnB Experiences. As a Singaporean, I know the area well and I also know all the great photo spots available in the area to capture the special moments of your trip, and ultimately make your trip an extremely memorable one.

I gifted this experience to my boyfriend, who was really satisfied and wrote the following feedback for Jonathan: “I did a photo shooting with Jonathan during my holiday in Singapore. Even though I’ve lived in Singapore for 5 years, he managed to surprise me with information and spots that I did not know before. He delivered more than what he promised and he was always happy to accommodate my needs. Jonathan is a really outgoing person, able to transform a hot Saturday morning into an amazing photoshooting tour around the best spots in Marina Bay.” I would recommend him for sure!

Pictures turned out amazing! We shot at places, with great views that I never could have known about by myself. The edit and the angles were great, and the pictures are beautiful and unique! It was a great decision, fun, easy, and enjoyable! A must do!

Firstly, the photos turned out really well! Each photo is well colour corrected, looks very professional. Jonathan also gave different variations shots of each location. I really love that he makes the background breathtaking. He was also open to suggestion and request from us. The whole experience was very enjoyable. Jonathan kept us engaged with his stories and experiences, history and trivia of each landmark, even when walking from location to location. Lastly, he taught us how to take photos with our phones and with a DSLR. And how to take breathtaking photos like he did. I’ve definitely recommended it to my friends.

As a local, even though I’ve been to these places many times, it was very interesting to see it through the eyes of a photographer. Jonathan was accommodating and friendly. He seems to know the different photo spots well and definitely made us feel comfortable throughout the experience. The photos look impressive and we are excited to receive the final edited ones! A big thank you to Jonathan for making the session a memorable one.
