Hosanna is a Creative Director based in Singapore. Photography, to her, is second nature, and has always been an integral part of her life. She seeks beauty in the mundane, approaching her subjects with authenticity and simplicity. Her photography captures moments rich in subtlety and textures. These elements, have in one way or another, influenced the way she perceives things, and the type of photographs she take. She had held 2 exhibitions at the Leica Galerie Singapore, with the most recent Challenge The Limits - (Dis)Parity of Light together with AikBeng Chia, fellow Leica Ambassador and veteran photographer.
"As an urban photographer who is highly intuitive and impulsive, I appreciate advancements which streamline my photography process. With its customisable interface, the SL2 is a great asset for me, doing away the unnecessary distractions and taking me closer to my subject. With this camera, I witness more potential in my environment, more beauty that could easily have gone unnoticed."

Leica SL2 Ambassador & Instructor
KC is a self-taught Singaporean Photographer, with over 15 years of experience. He spent his formative years in Singapore and was trained in Electronics Computer Engineering before embarking on his first career as Radar Specialist with The Republic of Singapore Air Force.
KC remembered vividly, the moment when he knew what he truly wanted to do - it was the close of an ordinary work day when he caught the sun setting against the background of fighter jets, and he has been chasing light and shadows since he launched his full-time commercial photography career in 2003, and strives in his work to portray the juxtaposition of light, shadows, geometry and time.
He is fascinated with observing people, expressions, moods, atmosphere, and places - and to capture these moments in time.
KC's training in engineering has helped him hone and master in-depth knowledge of his equipment and imaging tools for his craft - to provide an unusual perspective through the use of specialised techniques to evoke a feeling, bring back a memory, relive a moment in time, and tell a story.
He enjoys wandering the streets of Singapore, and traveling to understand and find inspiration in other countries for his photography, as evident in his eclectic portfolio of work which includes fine arts, commercial, travel/ street and fashion.
KC has been a Leica Ambassador Asia Pacific in 2016. His work has been showcased in various local, regional and international exhibitions, commercial projects and print media, including the esteemed "inFashion" of Leica Fotografie International.
"Photography is emancipation from this chaotic world of madness. This freedom is but a panacea which allows myself to immortalize (shape and even reshape) the moment. I watched, listened, transpose, and yet never fully understand what's there. That said, what I captured is what I perceived in that moment. It is never meant to be studied. It is just a relief for me, taking a breath of fresh air and freeze a moment in life's passage of time. Hopefully photography could be a elixir for someone else too."
Leica SL2 Ambassador
Munster is obsessed with the power of the visual language. He believes it has a profound influence to life and that of its symbolism, mood, emotional energy, elements, and tone can expand life by way of creating new realities and experiences for the viewer.
As a visual artist, he feels that he has major responsibilities and is always in a state of transition and self reflection, elusive from his commercial practice. The primary purpose of the visual arts is to help people not only get to know and understand something with their minds but also opening up their perceptions to the unfamiliar. Sometimes we are not able to see ourselves for who or what we really are, because we get stuck in our ways of thinking, or we often may become disillusioned. The impact of visual art often materialises in the subconscious; the audience consumes the work which provokes an innate response thus intrinsically resonating with the artist emotionally.
"My obsession with the power of visual language, and influence of human perception begins with the SL2."
