Tan Lip Seng is a prominent local photographer known worldwide for his slide and travel photography.

He picked up photography when he was 12 and even set up his own dark room, devoting a considerable amount of time and effort to master darkroom processing.

Tan’s works show a high degree of artistic feeling combined with good technique, creating a mood known to hold viewers in awe.

He believes that a good photographer must master the basics and only when these techniques are second nature to the photographer will he be able to concentrate on the emotional aspects of the subject.
