Simon Taplin has been photographing professionally for the past 18 years.
“I have always been motivated by the present and capturing it meaningfully. As a creative, I see myself in a constant process of exploration. Photography is my choice of medium; experimentation with both new and old technologies has created some of my most appreciated work, which sometimes are the result of happy accident!”
Simon has always been non-conformist with his style and concepts, whether he’s shooting underwater or aerial photography. Over recent years he has worked for numerous international agencies and clients, including JWT, Saatchi & Saatchi, Leo Burnett, BBDO and Corbis.
Clients include Unilever, P&G, Nokia, Cathay Pacific, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines,MasterCard, and Heineken. His industry awards include D&AD, The One Show and Communication Arts, and his work has been published in Archive and PDN.
Over the past decade, Simon has divided much of his time between Asia and Europe, Singapore being an ideal steppingstone to create in both markets. Shooting internationally keeps Simon’s concepts and style fresh as well as visually in-tune with today’s global living.
