I capture emotions, not just memories.

a little something about me.

I'm Jaegen Tan and I am a photographer based in Singapore. 

I mainly shoot portraiture and fashion editorials, but on my own free time I do film photography as well. I love capturing people's emotions in my photographs which is also why I put a lot of emphasis on moods in my stills.

I began my journey of photography at the age of 16, when I just finished my O-levels and decided to bring a camera on a humanitarian trip to Myanmar. 

 

I continued photography upon finishing my Diploma in Business Administration in Singapore Polytechnic, where I decided to travel to several countries before enlistment into National Service in Singapore. In a span of 3 months, I travelled to Korea, Hong Kong and Bali. 

 

As I served National Service in Singapore, I ventured into portraiture and fashion editorials, where I started to grasp the basics of conceptualising photo shoots and expose myself into the fashion industry. While I had free time away from army, I squeezed short trips overseas to Bali and Taiwan.

 

Upon serving up the 2 years of mandatory service to the nation, I had the opportunity to travel to the western side of the world to shoot for Fashion Week, NYFW / MFW / PFW, where I had the opportunity to meet prestigious brands and designers such as Tommy Hilfiger, DVF, Alice Mccall. 

Shortly after the fashion week project, I travelled to India to capture the essence and experience the culture there through backpacking. 

Jaegen Tan is a 23 year old travel and lifestyle photographer.

At 16, he started travelling as a backpacker - capturing the essence of the cities while exploring the diverse cultures of the countries he's travelled to. He then pursued his passion for photography by venturing into the fashion industry by conceptualising editorial styles in Fashion Week New York, Milan and Paris, shooting for  brands such as Bvlgari, Cartier and Thom Browne.

Jaegen specialises in portraiture and it is his favourite genre of photography as he enjoys the creativity and thought process that lies within creating a unique portrait. He is also working as a social media curator under Pursuit of Portraits.
