I'M A HUMANITY
Hi, there! I am Melvin, Head Photographer and Creative Director of The Photography of Melvin Mapa here in Singapore. I worked as a Creative Director in advertising for a little over two decades, only to discover that the path I was truly passionate about was that of a full time photographer. I feel it’s my calling (there’s an interesting story about that here).
My enthusiasm for photography came about at an early age of 7 when my parents gave me a KODAK 110 camera which I use to take pictures of my family and neighbours. I fell in love with photography and realised that there is so much more than just taking pictures — I want to tell stories through my photographs and show the world what the human eye sometimes can't see.
