Photography, Economy and LOVE…..

It has been a while since our last post…

Economic downturn seems to make a lot of people realise that that the one thing which matters in this world is Family’s Love….

We are glad that our booking is ever increasing in this difficult time and we are glad that people are turning their focus on their family nowadays.

At Tomato Photo, we spend a lot of time researching, improving our service, our image, and the whole experience. It will always start with a friendly email, a relax shoot, intense post processing and attention to detail in our deliverables.

What we offer is beyond “just another” photo session… we create artwork for you to enjoy for years to come and perhaps something that you may pass down for generations?

At Tomato Photo, we employ no discount policy because we do not compromise our work. Also we do not wish to offend anyone by having double standard in pricing as well as our quality of work.

The thing is, with discount, it is almost like asking our graphic designer to do half the job and giving us the design for TOMATO without the PHOTO… somewhat like asking us to just click… without putting heart and soul to feel and explore possibility to capture the special moments for our clients.

In business, it is difficult to say no to a commission work… however, deep down it is harder to blind ourselves by producing substandard work for our clients by cutting corners due to reduced price.

For many of our clients who understand why we are in this line of work, it is not because of just making a living, but it is a passion which keeps us going.

We thank you and are grateful to hundreds of our clients who are always behind us, supporting and pushing us for more.

We are also feel that we are unable to source a lot of better products locally to increase the whole Tomato Photo experience. We have been searching high and low and unfortunately, we need to import majority of our quality deliverables from overseas.

2009 will be a very interesting year as there will be a lot of changes at Tomato Photo…. for better of course.

Last but not least, no matter how things change, the one thing that do not change is “love”.

New Tomato New Photos


We have now moved from Hartanto Photography to Tomato Photo. New logo, more updated images on Children’s gallery.

Will update our “wedding” gallery once we got more spare time….

Our updated website —

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.
