Singapore: Simon Taplin

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; experimenting with both new and old technologies has created some of my most appreciated work, and sometimes as the result of happy accident!”

Simon has always been non–conformist with his style and concept of the work he produces whether it be underwater or from the air. Simon gained his pilot’s license in 2008, which has led to his latest creation and ongoing project of perfectly composed and often abstract aerial imagery.

Over recent years he has worked for numerous international agencies and clients, including JWT, Saatchi & Saatchi, Leo Burnett, BBDO, Corbis, 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.
