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," he says. "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 the style and concept of the work he produces, whether it be underwater or from the air (as in his latest creation, an ongoing project of abstract aerial imagery after gaining his pilot’s license in 2008), or more recently, videography.

Over recent years, Simon has worked for numerous international agencies and clients including JWT, Saatchi & Saatchi, Leo Burnett, BBDO and Corbis. His client list includes Unilever, P&G, Nokia, Cathay Pacific, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, MasterCard and Heineken, while his industry awards include D&AD, The One Show and Communication Arts. He has also 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 in-tune visually with today's global living
