Edgar Buenaobra

Photography is tremendously popular in Singapore, and you can see people comfortably taking photos capturing magic moments and favourite sights. Some may react compulsively, but most seldom take offence at being photographed. This inspired Edgar and how his interest for photography started. A Filipino, an architect by profession, a permament resident and working in a construction firm in Singapore and an avid hobbyist in the field of vernacular photography. And because of his work responsibilities, his colleagues started calling him “arkiboz” ( or a colloquial term for “architectural boss”. ) Edgar owned his first point-and-shoot digital camera, (Canon PowerShot SX10 IS) in 2008. His first photo shoot took place during Christmas holiday where you can see lots of colourful lights displays at all shopping mall facades and street decorations along Orchard Road, and then followed by the New Years' final countdown fireworks display. Unfortunately, those photo data files were lost and haven't been recovered anymore. huh?!? He continues his enthusiasm for photography by upgrading into his first DSLR, the Canon EOS 450D. Together with his friends, they journey together to develop their skills. Then when Canon introduced their new family member, Canon EOS7D , he did another upgrading. He even attended a crash course for studio and lighting photography conducted by Canon- Singapore. Currently he is focusing in portraiture and studio photography, abstract and artistic technique for models, some street shots and architecture subjects too. He is seeing photography as his next profession, and is making his ways to have his own photography studio business hopefully the soonest. Now,he is often invited to take photo shoot for event and performances, and private function such as birthdays and weddings. Fotografia de Arkiboz.
