Desmond Lui is a Singaporean photographer who specialises in documentary, reportage and portraiture photography.
A diverse range of experiences informs Desmond's craft of visual storytelling. He studied filmmaking and media design in school, and subsequently picked up the finer technicalities of studio and commercial photography while working in Shooting Gallery Asia as a photography assistant. A three-year stint as a freelance photojournalist with The Straits Times further refined Desmond's image-making skills and equipped him with tools to work confidently in fast-paced, high-pressure environments.
Desmond brings a wealth of experience to every photography shoot he covers and approaches each with imagination and verve. His images, captured in a precise and delicate manner, marry content and aesthetics and are often evocative, memorable and visually arresting.
Named as one of several emerging Singaporean photographers by Platform.SG in 2012, Desmond's work has been published regularly in numerous news publications and exhibited in Singapore, Cambodia and Thailand. He was also selected to attend several photography workshops such as the Angkor Photo Workshops in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Desmond possesses a strong portfolio of commissioned work for clients from a diverse range of industries. Some of his clients include Aviva, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, National Gallery Singapore, Prudential, Sony Pictures Television Entertainment Network, The Straits Times and United Overseas Bank.
