"Skai has always been the sincere and under-promise then over-deliver kind of guy! He is very hardworking and passionate about photography and will make sure the shoot is well planned from the timing to the equipment and other creative elements. This also includes checking with the client if they have any preference and whether they are happy with his proposal before the day of the shoot. He has always been very adventurous and flexible at the same time, an important quality in photography to bring out the best possible results and making each project interesting and unique. Being patient and polite also makes the model feels at ease as the last thing anyone would want is to have stressed-out kind of expression in the photos!" - Gilbert Lew

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.

Beyond creating stunning visuals, I believe in building genuine connections with my clients. I aim to create a welcoming and comfortable environment, fostering trust and collaboration throughout the process. By forming lasting relationships, I hope to be a part of their fashion stories for years to come.

How Skai Began Doing Men's Fashion Photoshoots

Ah, the journey of how I ventured into men's fashion photography is an interesting one, indeed. Initially, my focus was solely on women's fashion photography, as I found myself captivated by the grace and elegance of the female form. I must admit, I had some reservations about handling male subjects, fearing the potential challenges that might arise.

However, fate had different plans for me. It all began during prewedding shoots, corporate assignments and event coverage where I found myself working with male clients. These experiences provided me with valuable opportunities to refine my skills and build my confidence behind the lens. I realised that capturing the essence of men's fashion was just as rewarding and exciting as working with women's fashion.

As I delved deeper into the world of men's fashion photography, I noticed a significant improvement in my skills and the confidence to handle any assignment that came my way. I also developed a keen sense of discernment, learning to gracefully decline inquiries that didn't align with my vision or make me feel entirely comfortable.

With time, as I shared my portfolio online, I started gaining attention and generating interest from male clients. It was truly humbling to witness the growing enthusiasm for my work within the male fashion community. Inspired by this newfound demand, I decided to explore a unique niche: dating profile photography.

Recognising the importance of creating impactful first impressions in the world of online dating, I began offering tailored photoshoots to help individuals capture their best selves for their dating profiles. Surprisingly, the majority of my clients turned out to be men seeking that extra edge in the realm of online romance.

Through these experiences, I honed my expertise in lifestyle photography, curating images that encapsulate the essence of an individual's personality, style, and aspirations. As word spread about the success of my dating profile photoshoots, I became known for my ability to capture compelling images that transcend mere aesthetics, allowing my clients to authentically express themselves and attract meaningful connections.

So, from a hesitant start to now being recognised as a professional men's fashion photographer with a speciality in dating profile photography, my journey has been a testament to the power of skill, passion and stepping outside one's comfort zone. I'm grateful for every opportunity that has brought me here and I look forward to continuing to create memorable and meaningful visual stories for my valued clients.

Why Skai Loves Doing Men's Fashion Photoshoots

Ah, the love I have for men's fashion photography runs deep and there are a few reasons that make it truly special to me. Let me share them with you:

  1. Embracing Authenticity: Men's fashion photography allows me to celebrate authenticity and showcase the unique style of each individual. I believe that true style is a reflection of one's personality and inner confidence, and capturing that essence is a joyous experience. It's about highlighting the distinctive fashion choices and bringing out the raw charisma that lies within.
  2. Empowering Self-Expression: Fashion is a powerful tool for self-expression and men's fashion photography gives me the opportunity to empower individuals to embrace their personal style and confidently present themselves to the world. It's a privilege to be part of their journey as they explore their fashion identity and make a statement through their clothing choices.
  3. Simplifying the Process: One aspect that sets men's fashion photography apart is the simplicity of the process. Unlike some women's fashion shoots that may involve extensive makeup and hairstyling, many men prefer a more natural and effortless look. This allows us to streamline the planning and execution, focusing more on capturing captivating images rather than spending excessive time on grooming.
  4. Flow and Freedom: With many men opting not to have a makeup artist, it creates a seamless flow during the photography session. It allows us to concentrate on the art of photography itself, without interruptions or additional coordination. This fluidity enables us to explore different poses, locations and angles, fostering a relaxed environment where the focus is solely on capturing remarkable images.
  5. Encouraging Confidence: Men's fashion photography has the power to boost confidence and self-assurance. Through the images we create together, clients often discover new facets of their own style and develop a newfound sense of pride in their appearance. Witnessing this transformation and being a catalyst for their self-belief is incredibly rewarding.

Men's fashion photography resonates deeply with me because it celebrates authenticity, empowers self-expression, simplifies the process and allows for a seamless flow during the shoot. It's about capturing the true essence of each individual and helping them present their unique style to the world. It's a privilege and a pleasure to be part of their fashion journey and to create images that showcase their confidence and charisma.

I've learned how to enhance textures, highlight details and create visually striking images that showcase the garments and accessories with precision.
  2. Creative Adaptability: Working in the realm of men's fashion has challenged me to think creatively and adapt to diverse styles and trends. Each client brings their unique fashion sensibility, pushing me to explore different aesthetics and create images that reflect their individuality. This adaptability has expanded my creative horizons and allowed me to constantly evolve as a photographer.
  3. Confidence and Communication: Interacting with clients, models and industry professionals has boosted my confidence and enhanced my communication skills. Through clear direction and effective collaboration, I've learned how to bring out the best in my subjects, making them feel comfortable and eliciting genuine expressions that resonate with the viewer.

From client management to delivering exceptional customer service, I've learned the importance of professionalism, reliability and exceeding expectations. Building a successful photography business requires not only artistic talent but also a strong work ethic and an ability to navigate the industry landscape.
  6. Network and Collaboration: Being part of the men's fashion photography scene has opened doors to collaborations with designers, stylists, models and fellow creatives. The connections I've forged have expanded my network, allowing for exciting collaborations and the opportunity to contribute to the broader fashion community.
  7. Personal Growth: Perhaps the most significant growth I've experienced is on a personal level. Engaging with individuals from various walks of life, hearing their stories, and witnessing their journeys of self-expression has enriched my own perspective. It has taught me the value of empathy, cultural sensitivity and the power of photography to connect people and bridge differences.

Men's fashion photography has been an incredible catalyst for growth, pushing me to continually improve, adapt and embrace new challenges. It has not only refined my technical and artistic skills but also shaped me into a more confident, empathetic and versatile photographer. I am grateful for every opportunity and look forward to the continued growth and learning that this remarkable field offers.

This specialised branch of photography embodies creativity, capturing the essence of men's style and individuality while contributing significantly to the fashion world's aesthetic and visual narrative.

What Does Men's Wear Include?

Men's wear encompasses a wide array of fashion styles and attire suitable for various occasions and purposes.

On the other end of the spectrum, casual wear is perfect for everyday comfort and relaxation, offering a laid-back yet stylish look.

Smart casual wear, known for its versatility, is suitable for a range of semi-formal events, while street style and urban wear express a trendy and youthful fashion sense.

What are the Challenges of Doing Men's Fashion Photography?

While men's fashion photography in Singapore offers exciting opportunities, there are a few challenges that photographers may encounter:

  1. Weather Variability: Singapore's tropical climate can be unpredictable, with sudden rain showers or high humidity. This poses challenges for outdoor shoots and requires careful planning to work around weather conditions or find suitable indoor locations.
  2. Crowded Locations: Singapore is a bustling city with popular tourist spots and crowded public areas. Finding secluded or less crowded locations for photoshoots can be a challenge, especially when aiming for a clean and uncluttered background.
  3. Limited Space in Urban Areas: Singapore's urban landscape often presents limited space for outdoor shoots, particularly in busy city centres. Photographers need to adapt and utilise the available space creatively while ensuring the desired visual aesthetic is achieved.
  4. Permits and Regulations: Some iconic locations in Singapore may require permits or have specific regulations for commercial photography. Photographers need to be aware of these requirements and obtain the necessary permissions to avoid any legal issues.
  5. Fashion Trends and Expectations: Men's fashion trends evolve quickly, and photographers need to stay up-to-date with the latest styles and preferences. Meeting client expectations and capturing the desired fashion aesthetic can be a challenge, as trends and personal styles vary.
  6. Time Constraints: Clients often have busy schedules, and it can be challenging to find suitable time slots for photoshoots. Coordinating availability and ensuring sufficient time for the shoot, including setup and styling, is crucial for capturing the desired images.
  7. Client Comfort and Confidence: Building a rapport with clients and ensuring their comfort and confidence during the shoot is essential. Some individuals may feel self-conscious or uneasy in front of the camera, requiring photographers to employ effective communication and directing techniques to bring out their best.

Despite these challenges, skilled photographers in Singapore rise to the occasion, utilising their creativity, adaptability and expertise to overcome obstacles and deliver exceptional men's fashion photography that captures the essence of style and individuality.
