I picked up a camera because I love shooting photos of marine life and I love sharing my experiences through essays. Never would I expect that the endeavours that I view as a privilege would be recognised through an award.
It was such an honour to receive the Ocean Geographic Photo Journalist Award and top it off, winning the Master of Competition Wyland Award.
Congratulations to Pu Wen too, my buddy in crime! Many thanks to Michael Aw and Ocean Geographic for this honour.
