Jensen Chua is a true-blue Singaporean who started his journey in photography at 15 years old. In the world before the internet, he built his basic skills through mentors from New York Institute of Photography via printed assignments and cassette-recorded critiques couriered across continents. Having grown up during the days of films and manual cameras shaped his personal philosophy about photography. To him, true photography is about honest imaging and faithful to real life with minimal digital enhancement.
His passion garnered him a Canon Powershot Hall of Fame award in 2011 and Canon EOSWorld Creative Award 2014. He was chosen as one of Canon Brand Ambassadors in 2015 and accorded Council Member at Singapore Canon EOSWorld in late 2015. He is currently an associate instructor at Canon Imaging Academy. Some of his photographic accolades include – National Geographic, Smithsonian features and award in Singapore Garden Photographer of the Year contest. In 2014 and 2015, he was selected by the Hokkaido Tourism Bureau for sponsored photography trips. Since early 2016, he also travelled worldwide extensively after being appointed by Jetabout Holidays (Qantas-owned) as their travel photographer and writer.
Jensen likens himself as a pixels predator constantly on the prowl, cause his best shots are his next ones. These are the passion and philosophies that he brings to his work as a travel photographer, macro, nature, sports, food, journalism and more.
