Hello, I am GPS

Guek Peng Siong, or GPS as some of mine friends call me, has nearly 30 years of experience in photography. My love for the art started in the 1980s, when I first cradled in mine hands the Minolta Dynax 300i, a camera that was state of the art in its times. Little did I know then that photography was to be a lifelong passion whose flame continues to burn brightly today.

As a testament to Peng Siong artistic talent and technical ability, he has been awarded a Fellowship by the SAFRA Photographic Club. In addition, I also holds Associateships and Fellowships from various Photography societies, like Associateships from the Royal Photographic Society (UK), and Fellowships from Singapore Colour Photo Society, Photographic Society of Malaysia.

Peng Siong is a versatile photographer who is highly adept in the different genres of photography including Events, Pre-Wedding, Actual Day Wedding, Studio Portraiture, Outdoor Portraiture, Performance Dance, Landscape, Street Photography, Sports and much more. In recent years, he has also been specially selected to cover large scale events such as the 27th SEA Games in Myanmar, One Fighting Championships in Manilla, Jakarta, KL and Singapore, National Day Parades and Chingay Parades.

Unlike many photographers who operate solely behind the lens, Peng Siong is an engaging, knowledgeable and approachable instructor who has coached hundreds of students for SAFRA and Sony since 2006 and 2007 respectively. He also conducts regular photography workshops and courses for Automobile Association of Singapore, Red Dot Photo, Singapore Color Photographic Society as well as the SAF. Peng Siong has also contributed articles to the NSMen magazine in highly specialised areas such as night and sports photography.

His insights into the world of photography is also highly valued by the community and in this regard, the Singapore Colour Photo Society and Bedok Community Club have invited him to judge national level competitions.

Peng Siong also believes in giving back to society. Presently, he is an active volunteer photographer for Ren Ci, Major Temple and Children Cancer Foundation. He also finds time to serve as committee member of the SAFRA Photo Club.
