Honestly, it’s not easy to write the article about Best 10 Photographers in Singapore. Moreover, from my point of view I see that the article’s content is light enough and it is not really difficult to find information about. Nowadays, almost everything we need to know can be found on Google. Thanks to the Huge Penetration of Smart Phone and Internet Accessibility Development.
Try to Google about the title of this article, and you would find tons of articles writing about this-not to mention the paid ads which specifically directing to the photographers’ business website. The difficulty of writing this article lays on the research itself. I mean, when you write the keywords about this article, the first page of Google will show you the Top 10 Photographers in Singapore.
This condition can be achieved by conducting an Intensive SEO Marketing. So, any photographers with sufficient financial resource can hire The Best –highly proofen-SEO Agency and all related to this SEO campaign (such as: Fancy Content Writers, High Class Web Developer and Designer, etc) in order to put their business website on the first page of Google. In my mind, you don’t have to be really recognized as one of Top 10 Photographers in Singapore to put your website on the first page of Google. You just need to have enough money to do that. Yes, Money Talks. I realize that my personal opinion about this is controversial. Some clients of these Photographers or the Photographers themselves –whose business websites are on the first page-, might completely disagree with me.
Other difficulty of writing this article is the Photography Topics has switched over following the Up to Date Trends of Millennial Generation today. I was trying to write and search information about Best 10 Photographers in Singapore, I mean Photography in General –not only for certain or specific segmentation of Photography niche. And when I tried to Internet researching-nowadays called Googling-, I found out that most of the results was all about Wedding Photography. So, what happened to World Award Winning Photography? or Photographers -whose the pictures taken- described about the realities in real life? not to mention the Photography skills used.
Today, photography fancy gears are easily ordered through any online market place. So, anyone with enough money could purchase these gears, learning the skills from some levels of photography course and claim themselves as a Professional Photographer instantly. But, the old days Photographers achieved their skills through autodidact empirical learning process and enough experiences which took enough time.
So, their popularity was achieved through their works after some times of process, not instantly achieved. Photography courses or classes teaching photography skills to amateur or totally novice photographers were rare and difficult to find in the old days. Old days photographers can only achieve their basic photography skills from more senior photographers they worked for (could be family, like father, uncle, etc or totally stranger they work for), the rest advanced photography skills achieved from experiences, empirical learning by doing process and mentoring guru itself. But today, you can apply to one of so many choices of photography courses available to achieve any level –from basic to expert- of your photography skills. You can even learn these skills online at your comfortable home through the online lessons or courses.
Thanks again to Internet Development and all consequences following effects. Yes, once again -as I mentioned before- Money Talks. Mobile technology development also took part in developing photography world. Long time ago, it was rarely to find or even heard professional young people with photography equipments. But today, even a very young kid could easily take photos like a professional photographer by using some Sophisticated Mega Pixels Camera Phone. Based on my personal experience –my uncle’s experience actually-, old days Photographers could buy fancy photography gears only after their popularity raised up which automatically also raised their pay rate up. But today, people buy fancy photography equipments to become a professional photographer, which is contradictory with the old day’s photographers steps of process to develop. This different circumstances between Old Days Photographers and Today Generation Photographers could be an improvement or a decline on the contrary. It’s up to any of you seeing this by using different perspectives.
Finally, I decided to write down this article based on what I found on the first page of Google, not including the paid ads. I combined the data from both direct official photographer’s business website and voting results generated by 2 online media which I found on the first page. The data are about Single Person Photographer and Photography Agencies consist of more than 2 photographers.
