Cultivated by almost ten years of pursuit in visual art, Elwin has acquired a certain finesse with the dictation of narrative in the pictures he captures, encapsulating worlds that is almost iconic in its vibrancy and life. Specializing in portraits and lifestyle, he captures still-life that isn’t so still and images that vibrate beyond the confines of its captured moment.
A graduate of both Singapore’s longest running and recognized film program, Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s Film and Media Studies, and the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, Elwin attributes the cinematic quality of his works to both his film making background and his vigorous proclivity for diversity. He has worked with a varied bunch of creatives, from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Cilicon Faytory, Salvation Army to Xpeed Helmet, Channel News Asia and Sony.
Elwin continues to pursue both the commercial and the dramatic aspect of photography. He has been awarded international honors for both advertising and fine art, and has participated in various film productions.
A traveler, he whimsies between his homeland Singapore and his heartland Los Angeles. A scrupulous artist, he seeks opportunities to share and better his art. A mad hatter, he relentlessly pursues projects down rabbit holes...while of course, never forgetting to sip his tea.
