Finally… Qualified Master Photographers Association

Been working really hard and countless hours have been spent to ensure that we can qualify for a prestigious association from UK.

Thanks to all our clients who put their trust in us to capture part of their life….

Also special thank to two of my peers as well as dear friend, Matthew Tan from Portrait Gallery as well as  friend Eloise Clarke from Eloise Clarke Photography in giving me valuable suggestions and encouragements.

Without you all, to qualify to MPA was just a dream…

Well, it was nerve-racking this morning waiting for my turn to get my panels judged. It was even more so during the judging…. and I was so thrill that all judges propose that I can be qualified for the Licentiate membership to Master Photographers Association.

This is just beginning and more works needs to be done to ensure higher level of membership can be attained in the future.

Once again… thank you everyone and we are committed to continue to grow to provide you the best work and service.

Tomato Photo Studio is ready…..

Hello all,

It was about 12 months ago when we started advertising for our work in Newborn, Baby & Children Photography and we are glad that with continuous support from all our clients, we are able to outgrow our “home based” office.

Hence it is time to move to a bigger space.

After weeks of preparation and sourcing for the stuff we need. We are please to announce that the gallery/studio is ready for business.

The gallery/studio visit is strictly by appointment only and after hour appointments are welcome.

Gallery/Studio is at 6 Chiku Road (Off Joo Chiat Place , Next lane to Four Season Durian Cafe)

Christmas Charity Photos

Well mate… here it is…

Some images we took during the event, we love to feature every kiddo that come to support us during this event, however, due to limitation of space and we can only feature some images that touches our heart….

The greatest gift that we’ve received during this event are the wonderful smiles on the faces of those little kiddos.

Shooting was the easiest part, retouching part was overwhelming, we spent about 180+ hours retouching the images for all the shoots over 10 days period between 2 of us… Yes, we must be crazy to retouch EVERY SINGLE images and this is a charity event.

The thing is, with Tomato Photo, we DO NOT compromised on our images by cutting corners…

It was 3 days of on and off drizzle, but our conclusion is KIDS LOVE RAIN…. so why shy away from rain and stop shooting?

Day 1 – Rain, Rain and Rain…..Due to rain, we limited the shoot at covered space we have, for client who let us have our way, we have capture some of the special images for them and we have taken some of our favorite shots of the day….

Day 2… Its Christmas day!!! – Weather was quite good but a bit of rain… But hey… kids love rain

Day 3 – Great Day….. still overcast…

—- Thank you to everyone for supporting us in this Charity Event —-

Christmas Charity

We have been talking about doing some charity work to help the needy since July. However, bookings have kept us busy since we started in March 2008.

Yes, Finally we did it…

Christmas is a time of giving, so we can’t find a better time to do what we intend to do.

So on 24-26 Dec 2008, we did a charity shoot around the common area of our residence….

We are glad that we have raised $1500 for Autism Resource Centre to help the Autism kids to develop skill which enable them to be like many of us.

It is a very small amount comparing what they need, but we do hope it helps.

What we wish to see is if every photographer in this world can spare few days in a year from their busy schedule to help the needy, it will bring lots of smile to those in need.

Helping the needy doesn’t have to be in material form… it could be a simple visit to people in need and listen and caring for them… if you could put a smile in someone’s face, you deserve a pat at the back.

After all, we are in SMILING business….

We shall update some of the images taken during this event when we post processed some of them. Until then…

We wish everyone Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year….

Hello from Tomato…..

This is the Journey which we don’t see the end, because we are enjoying the journey… Just like a long holiday which do not have any end date that put us back to reality.

We are living our dream.

It has been an interesting 4+ months since we moved from Sydney to Singapore. Tomato Photo was set up in December 2007 as a continuity of Hartanto Photography which was based in Sydney Australia.

We were blessed with one healthy little baby boy on mid January 2008, and for the first time, it has been one of our joyous moment of our lives.

Tomato Photo Journey just started in early March 2008…. and it has been a rewarding few months learning new business culture in Singapore.

Tomato Photo specialises in people photography because we connect with people… Children photography and Wedding Photography are our focus now, however, we are putting more resources towards Children photography for 2008.

We hope to capture beyond the pretty faces. We love to capture those “personality” within the little one and capturing the feel, mood and moments in our work.

We are in the process of updating our corporate identity to reflect TOMATO PHOTO rather than Hartanto Photography.
