About the Speaker

After his studies, Lawrence found his true passion in photography while he was just into his first year of work stint. With his wife’s support, he ventured out of the comfort zone and pursued his passion.

13 years of being a professional followed, during which Lawrence provided photography and videography services across a wide range of genres including portraits, events, corporates and celebrations. Day-to-day work ranged from editing thousands of images and clips at his home office to running alongside with the Guest-of-Honour to capture important moments.

Lawrence’s talents lie in understanding his client’s needs and capturing perfect shots instantaneously, while he also possesses a people-centric character in forging deep relationships with clients and people of all ages.

In 2016, he created a Youtube channel “3wheelingtots” for his children, with a simple objective to document his family’s happy moments who firmly believes in bringing learning and fun outdoors. He is now a daddy micro-influencer who shares his thoughts, images, videos and family journey through the digital media.

In 2019, Lawrence completed the Specialist Diploma in Social Media Marketing and Online Content Creation with Singapore Media Academy (by Singapore Media Academy) where he gained a deeper understanding in marketing and creating content in the digital media scene.

With his multiple roles as a professional photographer, videographer, social media influencer and also a tech savvy person, Lawrence hopes to share his knowledge through talks and courses to encourage lifelong learning and resilience.
