Documentary, Lifestyle and Commercial photographer.
Speaker, Host, Writer.
Mindy Tan, based in Singapore, is a photographer with a passion for capturing people.
She started out as a journalist at the Singapore Press Holdings, reporting local breaking news, looking into Singapore's migrant labour, as well as youth and community issues. In 2007, she won the Society of Publishers Asia Award for Excellence in Human Rights Reporting.
In 2008, completing her Arts Scholarship bond, she decided to venture out solo for a hand in documentary photography. Today, her assignments range from lifestyle portraiture to long-form documentary and sport events.
She has photographed the Beijing Paralympics 2008, the Singapore F1 Grand Prix, and WTA Championships 2015-2018.
Her work has been published in Bloomberg, National Geographic magazine, The Guardian, Die Zeit, China Daily, SCMP, and The Straits Times. Commercial clients include Nike, McDonalds, Microsoft, Salesforce, Uniqlo, Samsung and the Singapore Tourism Board. Her work has also been exhibited in Japan, France and Singapore.
In 2019, she received a big break to work directly with Fujifilm’s headquarters in Japan to conceptualise, interview and script-write for the 90-min documentary film, Camera Punk. She was hand-picked from 500 X-Photographer ambassadors worldwide for this global project.
With Fujifilm Singapore, Mindy also produced and hosted the 9-part photography learning series, FujiGirl.
