Testimonials: What Clients Say about Skai

conceptual photography session review

"I have known Skai for 6 years and my first impression of him is a very humble and professional photographer who takes his work seriously. I remember my first shoot with him was at Pinnacle @ Duxton rooftop garden. I was very new to photoshoot and he guided me along on how I should pose and smile. He is very patient to a newbie like me! Because of him, I have the opportunities to do many more shoots together - Lifestyle shoots at IKEA, at the alley at Duxton Hill, collaboration with MUA Yuko and mostly recently, a casual shoot with my husband at Jurong Lake Park! He is definitely someone you will find joy to work with! I will highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a professional photographer!"

Conceptual Photography Services in Singapore

Hey there, great to have you interested in my conceptual photography services! I'm Skai and I'm all about creating personalised and meaningful photo concepts for individuals like you.

Conceptual photography is all about turning your unique ideas and concepts into stunning visual stories. I'll take the time to understand your story, your vision and your personality to make sure that every photo I take is unique and special.

I like to use my creativity and imagination to add an extra layer of depth and meaning to my photos. My photography is like a canvas, on which I paint your imagination with my camera lens, bringing it to life in a way that's beautiful and artistic. You can count on me to create images that are full of life and emotion, capturing the essence of your idea in every frame.

I'm always on the lookout for interesting angles, unique perspectives and creative lighting to make your photos pop. With my extensive knowledge of lighting and professional equipment, I can create a variety of moods and atmospheres, from bright and vibrant to moody and dramatic.

As an experienced photographer, I specialise in two distinct styles: professional photography, where the pure beauty of natural light reigns supreme, and high-end photography, where the artistry of artificial light takes centre stage.

So if you're looking for personalised, creative and meaningful photography services in Singapore, do read on!

Natural Light Conceptual Photography Session

In the world of natural light photography, I'm like a light whisperer, harnessing the power of natural light to create jaw-dropping compositions. I chase that ever-changing sunlight, using it to bathe my subjects in a soft, ethereal glow. The result? Timeless and authentic images capture the true essence of the moment in all its natural splendour. I bring out the best in every subject, revealing her unique qualities in a way that'll leave everyone captivated and grinning from ear to ear.

Flash (High-End) Conceptual Photography Session

In my high-end photography sessions, I introduce a touch of enchantment with artificial light. Picture me as a wizard of illumination, armed with professional lighting equipment to sculpt and shape the scene with finesse. I play with shadows, casting them dramatically or I bathe my subjects in a radiant glow, turning them into heavenly beings. This style lets me dive into a world of boundless creativity, where visually striking and conceptually rich images come to life. From dazzling fashion editorials to mind-bending conceptual projects, my high-end photography sessions elevate the artistry and sophistication of every frame.

Other Art Photography Sessions

In addition to my professional and high-end sessions, I also dabble in the captivating world of art photography. Oh yes, we're talking about boudoir sessions, where beauty and confidence intertwine to create sultry and empowering images that'll make you go "wow!" Implied nude? Oh, you betcha! We'll play with the art of suggestion, leaving a little something to the imagination while still igniting the flames of desire.

But wait, there's more! Tattoo photography is another realm I delve into, capturing the vibrant inked expressions that adorn the human canvas. Each tattoo tells a unique story and I make it my mission to bring those stories to life through captivating visuals. And let's not forget the wonder of themed photoshoots! From whimsical fairy tales to bold and edgy concepts, we'll venture into a world of imagination where the ordinary transforms into the extraordinary.

By exploring these different genres, I gain a wealth of experience that enhances and fuels my photography. Each session brings new challenges, new perspectives and new opportunities to stretch my creative muscles. It's like a delightful smorgasbord of artistic exploration, where I get to refine my skills, experiment with different techniques and ultimately become a more versatile and well-rounded photographer.

Quick Explanation of Photography Costs

I've streamlined my photography packages to be wallet-friendly, ensuring you get the best value. The most considerable portion of my photography cost is calculated based on:

  1. Duration booked: it includes changing of equipment, wardrobe, makeup, hairstyle and travelling during the shoot.
  2. Equipment required: natural light vs flash.
  3. Type of editing: basic vs advanced.
  4. Copyright/privacy: there's a fee should you don't want the photos to be published anywhere.
  5. Extensiveness of planning required.
  6. Special requests/ add-ons & surcharges.

Please read the full explanations so that you can make a better decision.

Special Requests

I've tailored these special requests and add-ons to cater to the unique tastes of my past clients, ensuring each voyage is personalised. The inclusion of these options aims to dissuade similar requests and, importantly, not as a means for me to pocket extra income from my future clients.

Think of it as a bespoke service, crafted with your preferences in mind rather than a cunning plan to boost the treasure chest.

Surcharges

Picture this – I'm here to offer you a good experience without breaking the bank. But, when a project starts encroaching on my personal space or health or requires any additional cost, a surcharge is the reality check. No beating about the bush – it's a straightforward acknowledgment of the extra effort.

It's about ensuring a top-notch journey. Your support in grasping this aspect ensures our photography sail stays steady. Ready to roll with this clarity? Your agreement is the fuel that powers our creative engine.

For the uncommon surcharges, do look through the full list of surcharges to avoid miscommunications.

Turnaround Time

Turnaround time depends on various factors, such as:

  1. The number of photos taken
  2. The workload of the photographer
  3. The type of editing required
  4. The quantity of photos requested
  5. The condition of the venue

Generally, if the client needs to choose the photos, it will take up to two weeks for the photographer to sift through and eliminate bad and duplicate shots. The remaining photos are then provided to the clients in a low-resolution PDF file. After the client makes the selection, it will take up to a month for basic editing or two months for advanced editing before the final photos are returned.

Skai follows the practice of reviewing the photos with a fresh mind every one to three days to ensure the highest possible quality. This significant effort places him at a disadvantage in terms of profit. Therefore, clients should appreciate the value of receiving meticulously edited photos, even if it means a slight delay.

In most cases, especially when the number of photos is limited, the final edited photos can be returned much earlier without compromising quality.

For more information, read photography editing time explained.

Skai's Conceptual Photography

Skai's Approach to Conceptual Photography

When it comes to my approach to conceptual photography, I'm all about telling a story with every shot and capturing the unique essence of my subjects. To do this, I first get to know my clients on a personal level. I want to understand their personalities, inspirations and communication goals so that I can create bespoke photo concepts that are tailored to their needs.

Generic, cookie-cutter shots are not my style. I'm all about creating something truly one-of-a-kind that reflects my clients' individuality. I love experimenting with new techniques and styles to push the boundaries and take my photography to new heights.

Lighting is a big part of my approach and I use professional equipment to create eye-catching and dynamic photos that make my subjects stand out. Whether I'm using natural light or my own equipment, I always strive to make my subjects look three-dimensional and add depth and texture to every shot.

But photography shouldn't just be about getting the perfect shot - it should also be enjoyable and fun for everyone involved. I create a relaxed, comfortable environment for my clients and build a rapport with them to put them at ease in front of the camera. By doing so, I can capture natural, authentic shots that truly showcase the unique personality of each subject.

Skai's Vision and Goals in Conceptual Photography

As a conceptual photographer, my goal is to create art that moves and inspires my audience. I want my photos to convey a message, tell a story and elicit emotions that stay with viewers long after they've looked away.

In pursuit of this vision, my aim is to constantly push the limits of traditional photography and explore new styles and techniques that challenge not only myself but also my clients. I strive to create concepts that are unique, provocative and visually stunning, using both established and experimental methods to achieve my desired effect.

But beyond just creating art, I also prioritise providing an unforgettable experience for my clients. I believe that taking photos should be a joyful, memorable experience for everyone involved. I aim to create a warm, relaxed environment that encourages my clients to let their personalities shine through, resulting in photographs that truly capture their essence.

Ultimately, I aspire to be a leading figure in the world of conceptual photography, using my art to make a positive impact on the world. Whether I'm raising awareness for social issues, celebrating diversity, or simply bringing happiness to people's lives, I want to use my work to make a difference. I firmly believe that photography has the power to change hearts and minds, and I'm determined to be a part of that movement.

How Skai Began Doing Conceptual Photoshoots

When I first began portrait photography, I found myself doing very normal fashion photoshoots and quite frankly, it was boring. But when people saw my portfolio, they kept approaching me for the same kinds of "boring" photo concepts. It became a vicious cycle and I knew I had to do something different.

Luckily, I had a commercial makeup artist friend who was coaching me on styling. She teased and nagged at me for being boring too but it was a wake-up call. I wanted to create something special and eye-catching. So, I decided to work on glamour and themed photoshoots because I believe these two types of photography genres are more interesting.

That's when I began doing special-themed photoshoots and suggesting unique concepts to models who approached me. I realised that for me, it's all about the concept. I wanted to tell a story with my photos and evoke emotions in people.

Then one day, my makeup artist friend from Japan came over to Singapore, and we decided to collaborate on some conceptual shoots. Her ideas were simply mind-blowing! It was like a spark had been lit inside of me and I knew that this was the direction I wanted to take my photography.

From then on, I leaned towards trying to do more conceptualised shoots.

Why Skai Loves Doing Conceptual Photoshoots

Conceptual photography is my absolute favourite thing to do. It's more than just snapping some pictures - it's about creating art. I am constantly pushing myself to come up with ideas that are intriguing and will make me stand out from the crowd. Not gonna lie, it's pretty cool to have people take notice of my work.

But that's not the only reason I do it. Through conceptual photography, I've met some of the most talented and creative people who share the same artistic vision as I do. It's amazing how art can bring people together and forge strong and lasting connections.

The sheer satisfaction of creating art is another reason why I adore conceptual photography. When everything is clicking and the shoot is going smoothly, I feel pure elation and joy. I lose myself in the creative process and it feels like nothing else in the world exists.

And seeing an idea that was once just a tiny seed of inspiration blossom into a real-life photograph? That's pure magic. It's like breathing life into a thought that was once just a fleeting image in my mind. And when I see the final product, I am filled with a sense of pride and accomplishment.

That's why I continue to do conceptual photography - it's more than just a job or a hobby, it's a passion. It's a way for me to express myself and create something that's truly unique and beautiful.

Additionally, conceptual photographs can be showcased in exhibitions, used in print or online media and featured in personal portfolios, including modelling portfolios.

What are the Challenges in Doing Conceptual Photography?

Conceptual photography presents its own set of challenges due to its abstract and imaginative nature. Here are some common challenges that photographers may encounter when engaging in conceptual photography:

  1. Concept Development: Creating a strong and meaningful concept can be challenging. It requires careful thought, brainstorming and research to develop a unique and compelling idea that effectively communicates the intended message or story.
  2. Execution: Translating a conceptual idea into a visual image requires careful planning and attention to detail. From finding the right location, props and models to coordinating costumes, makeup and lighting, the execution of the concept can be complex and time-consuming.
  3. Symbolism and Metaphor: Conceptual photography often relies on symbolism and metaphor to convey its intended meaning. Choosing the right symbols and incorporating them seamlessly into the composition can be a creative and technical challenge.
  4. Communication and Collaboration: Conceptual photography often involves working with models, stylists and other creative professionals. Ensuring effective communication and collaboration is essential to bring the concept to life and align everyone's visions and expectations.
  5. Technical Skills: Conceptual photography may require advanced technical skills in terms of lighting, composition and post-processing. Achieving the desired visual effects and mood may involve experimentation and mastery of various techniques.
  6. Translating Abstract Ideas: Transforming abstract concepts and emotions into visual images can be a complex task. It requires the photographer to think creatively and find ways to represent intangible concepts in a tangible and visually engaging manner.
  7. Viewer Interpretation: Conceptual photography often invites viewers to interpret the images based on their own experiences and perspectives. Balancing the intended message with the freedom for individual interpretation can be a challenge, as the photographer aims to evoke specific emotions or thoughts while allowing room for personal connection.

Despite these challenges, conceptual photography offers immense creative freedom and the potential for profound and thought-provoking imagery. Overcoming these obstacles requires a combination of artistic vision, technical skills and perseverance to capture the essence of the concept and create impactful visual narratives.
