Daniel Capobianco
M.Photog, AIPP
Since 1990 has been honing his skills in graphic design, photo re-touching and enhancement, and video production. In 2003 Daniel embarked on a new career and passion...photography. His love of the whole photographic process had begun and he scored his first job with a very average, noisy digital camera and LOTS of Photoshopping!!!

Since his start in photography, he has established himself as an accomplished photographer and all round digital artist. He has won many awards both at home and abroad and has achieved his masters with the AIPP and is an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop.

Although predominantly wedding and portrait based at first, he has now combined all three skills (graphic design, video production, photography) to offer his clients a complete service whether it be portraits, advertising or commercial work.

Staying at the forefront of the digital medium and its various branches along with his commitment to quality and consistency of work has helped him establish himself as a real player in the photography industry.

"Life is definately about the journey and not the destination, however, photography is equal parts journey and destination. If an image looks good and evokes an emotion...it is good."

Sebastian Tan
The New York Festival Gold, D&AD, Creative Circle Awards, Media asian Advertising Awards, Asia Pacif
Group Managing Director Sebastian Tan

Sebastian entered the market as a fresh-eyed art student. Also a much sought after photographer and director today, Sebastian has been known to be a maverick possessing a unique and effective blend of creativity, fiery passion and foresight.

Never giving up his dream of becoming an art director one day, he showed gritty persistence and imagination in his first stint as a photographers assistant. Even while he was constantly kept busy by the demands of his job, he honed the skills of the trade from the bottom up.

Armed with only a 35mm camera, a couple of lenses and the proceeds from the sale of his car, The Shooting Gallery was born in 1987 out of his necessity to survive.

Perhaps one of the few things that The Shooting Gallery of today has in common with its humble roots is the professionalism of Sebastian and his crew. A diversified and major player in print and television commercial production, the brainchild has expanded to include production subsidiaries and dedicated digital imaging facilities, Wishing Well The Imaging Station. The collective enterprise has bagged practically every major advertising award in the world including a Gold Lion at Cannes, secured long-term deals with major clients and teamed up with top-class professionals from around the globe
.
To date, Shooting Gallery Asia is a collective of 15 companies with offices and studios in Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, New Zealand, The Maldives and growing.
The latest being Artison, a production design business to support and add value to the filmmaking industry. Theres also an office in Paris to market the group and support work from Europe.

Besides being the President of the Professional Photographers Association (Singapore), Sebastian also sits on the advisory panel of Temasek Polytechnics School of Design and the Institute of Technical Educations Design and Media Academic Advisory Committee. He is a member of the Singapore Workforce Development Agencys Media & Communications Manpower Skills & Training Council.
He has also served and judged in various Award Shows like, the Creative Circle Awards, The Hall Of Fame Awards, The Crowbars, The Phoenix, The Kodak Gongs, The Asian Television Awards, The Apollo and many more. At the 2005 Creative Circle Awards, he was one of five individuals honoured with a Champions of the Creative Circle Awards for his contributions to the industry. He has also been awarded the Spirit of Enterprise, 2007 and been named in Marketing Magazines The Singapore 20, a select list, identifying experts whose decisions truly impact the Singapore media scene. He was also awarded with a Most Promising Entrepreneurship Award at the Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Awards, 2009 that was organised by Enterprise Asia. He is most recently awarded 2010 Successful Entrepreneur. The Shooting Gallery also won the Gold at the Agency of the Year Awards 2009 and named the Production Agency of the Year

With a sprawling 21,000 sq feet headquarters at Brilliant Building, Sebastian has much to be proud of his achievement. But he still remains the same simple and humble visionary, with no airs at all, persuading clients not just with the depth of his views but also the expertise of his direction.

Christian Fletcher
I have been taking photographs professionally for over 18 years. In that time I have had to evolve with every advance in technology and creative technique. It is such an exciting and challenging time to be in the industry. The advent of digital has revolutionised photography as an art form. It has also bought photography and image manipulation to the masses. Every second person now takes photographs and many are trying their hand at creating a living from their hobbies. Digital in some ways made it easier to be a photographer, but it still takes a certain level of skill and understanding to truly master the craft.

I cut my teeth on film and lived for years in a darkened room, mixing chemicals, printing my own prints and framing them. When I think of where I began, look at where I am now and beyond to the future I am amazed at how far I have come and how far there is still left to go. Every month someone develops an new idea or approach that refines photography just that little bit more. It is these refinements that keep it exciting for me. Photography comes second to my family, I place it that highly. Sometimes it can be frustrating, sometimes depressing, but it is always rewarding if you work hard and want to succeed.
