Thank you to all the mentors, Kenny Loh, Snow Ng, Ashraf Saharudin and Eiffel Chong for their continued guidance and mentorship. The Exposure Photography Mentor Program has, through its inception, developed into a truly effective, beneficial & productive ‘education’ program for newcomers in photography who seek to develop their story-telling skills visually, through time-constrained sessions – identifying, researching and executing photo-stories, through to the final editing and presentation. The most effective and vital aspects of the program have been the group discussion sessions amongst participants as well as their mentors.
