A Little History of Myself :)

I was born in Singapore with most part of my life there before migrating over to Australia in 2004. I have been in IT ever since I graduated from University and am working as an IT project officer writing codes for application packaging and software deployment.

I have only became interested in photography since 2003, after saving up for a Panasonic DMZ-F1. However all that I knew was to snap and shoot everything in auto and that's pretty much the best of knowledge I have then. I managed to somehow lost that cam back in 2006 or perhaps has been stolen :( Ever since I never really got back into photography even though my dad gave me a replacement Sony Cybershot to play around with.

I am always enthusiastic to take up a course in this field to kick start my passion if time & money permits. However i've achieved what i wish to do before - saving up for my first SLR digicam! ~ Canon Rebel XTI ~ That very day - 31.03.2008! & i believe i will never look back the same way i used to think of photography... of cos with great hope that this new found hobby will stick with me for the rest of my life! Fingers crossed ;)

Therefore please do drop any feedback for my photos - will appreciate be it its good or bad. Its only feedbacks or constructive criticism which will help one to improve. Thanks for spending time to read my profile too! Cheers!

I've been into DSLR photography for around 9 mths at this point in time :) I've to truly admit now that i'm totally obsessed with HDR photography/processing :D in fact can't stop imagining of how everything will look in HDR everytime i see a subject haha! A bit of what has been going on for those who just happen to bump into my photostream for the first time. This crazy pastime started ever since I uploaded my first HDR on 17 May 2008. I enjoy every minute of it. Honestly hoping that i'll become a great HDR artist one fine day or in years to come :) Some of you might think i'm already very good or a pro but honestly please don't as i'm not at all & still an amateur photographer doing this only during my free time...i'm still always learning and picking up as much knowledge as I can from experience photographers like you guys over here.

Thank you so much for all your constant support! :)

    "I am a great fan of Artie NG. He is one of my oldest friends in Flickr.

    I am not qualified enough to write a testimonial for such a great Artist.
    However I would like to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to such a Great PhOtOgrapher, PhOtO Artist, HDR Master , who is very kind enough to consider me as his friend.

    He has been a great inspiring force in flickr for photographers like me.
    I wish him and all his near and dear ones all the very best."

    "although Artie probably doesn't need another testimonial (because he has so many) still i would like to write one . . . just because. i take that back - it's not "just because" - actually there are so many reasons why i want to write this. first and foremost, to thank Artie for his generosity - i never would have thought he would give the time of day to someone like me whose photographic style (if i have one) is in contrast with his. i would also like to thank him for sharing his magnificent images and for unselfishly sharing his process - HDR process nonetheless. not too many are as generous. and, lastly, i want to thank him for the inspiration - i know that someday, when i get the chance to shoot landscapes or seascapes or architecture i will have Artie's vision and images at the back of my mind to serve as a yardstick of quality. thank you, Artie. i feel fortunate to have "met" you here on Flickr.

    The best and most generous thing that Artie does is to share with us all how he achieves the final image by posting the detail of the post processing work"

    "Flick is a great place but people are what truly make flickr great and Artie is one of the greatest.

    Artie is a special combination of a gifted talent and a huge heart. I am new to photography and somewhat new to flickr. When I first saw Artie's photos, I was blown away. Then I realized that Artie included information in his photos about how he produced the shot. What a concept! Not only is this guy a talented photographer, but he wants to share!

    I know, it sounds crazy, but it's true.

    Now, add that talent to make great art to the desire to share his secrets and throw in a huge heart and what do you have? Well, I tell you, you have Artie!

    Artie has been so generous with his comments and kind words on my photostream, it really makes me wonder when he sleeps.

    I feel like I haven't been able to put into words how Artie has touched my life, as a mentor, as a supporter, and just as a friend.

    Artie, you are an amazing person and isn't the world so wonderful that it offered me the chance to be touched by you.

    I can't wait to be inspired by the next great piece of art from Artie!!!"

    "I say it with conviction – Artie is everyone’s favorite guy in Flickr. He has a tremendously beautiful, constantly celebrated and endlessly inspiring photostream. His photography and editing technique has reached the heights of stardom, nearing the ethereal boundaries of heaven (I’m not kidding, just look at his photos!)... but hey, we all know that right? What is even more amazing about Artie is his natural gift of having a BIG heart – to me, he plays a teacher as well as a friend; perhaps to others, he is what I vision him to be and even more… He gives such wonderful, constructive and inspiring comments, leaving the one he left his icon with a sense of hope, spirit and pure joy. I am a victim of Artie’s crimes – Being an outstanding photographer and a person who appreciates all the world around him, even those beyond his kingdom of colorful, breathtaking and passionate works of art

    Thank you, Artie for being an inspiration to us all ☺"

At the moment (16.06.2009) he is in a LAZY MOOD but he is able to gift us excellent works as well :-)

    Artie is wonderfully talented and his exceptional work is masterfully composed, creative and so colourful. His attention to detail and technical ability is astounding. There’s always something to love in every one of his works. It’s a pleasure to browse through his ‘stream. His work always offers entertainment and education.

    Being one of the most inspirational people on Flickr, he’s one of my favourite contacts – always witty, kind, encouraging, caring, generous….the list goes on! :) Did I mention his great sense of humour? Always a laugh when Artie’s around.

    With a very demanding job and such a huge fan base, I’m always amazed at the effort he puts into each and every comment to his friends, every day. I don’t know how you do it!!! You’re one of the sweetest people and most definitely and proudly one of my favourite friends."

    "This testimony is so very very overdue. Hmm..., what can I say that haven't been testify by others a hundred times here before? Well, to put it simply, Artie's photos remind me of the advertisement slogan for the TV channel Animal Planet, "IT GRABS YOU!". All his photos have that signature eye catching colors and stunning imaginery that everytime I look at my contact photos, the first one that caught my eye inevitably is Artie's latest post. There's simple no escape! LOL! But it's not just flashy colors, there are always great attention to the smallest detail and careful composition and perfect framing in all his shots, a result of the merticulous and phenomenal HDR skills that Artie is famous for. Looking through his photostream is a wonderful experience to behold and nothing short of attending the best photography art in exhibition. Given that Artie just started not too long ago in photography, I can only wonder in time to come how great his work will be when he reaches his full potential.

    I also should add ( and others have also testify a thousand times ), Artie is also a great friend and an encouraging teacher which I have the honor to learn a lot from. I hope he will always find the inspiration to break new grounds in his photographic work for years to come and indirectly be a source of inspiration for all of us."

    ""Artie I Photography" is passionate, enthusiastic, heartful, energetic, unique, extraordinary, inspirational, imaginative, magical and just totally ARTISTIC.

    Artie is not just a photographer, he can so well to include artistic elements into the photos, the colours are reflecting the true moments, and I always fell refreshing and inspirational after enjoying his sharings. Not just colours, his angle and perspectives are so unique and excellent to broader the limits by the lens, so for his captures over nature and architecture, they are always very stunning and surprising.

    And Artie is very kind in sharing the skills with the friends, no matter the stories behind the captures or HDR skills, I believe this is the very positive attitude of a top photographer.

    Artie, thank you for sharing such an artistic world to me@"

    Also, his always shares his summary notes over the pix at the bottom part. How he did, what features, functionality and tools he been working on. Truly beginner like me, these piece of info are sufficient for me to boost up my imagination whenever I'm rendering on my works too, honestly it does help alot...

    He never been selfish when you have doubts on something. He'll try his best to answer within his boundaries, which i feel I'm not alone although there are many of flickrians.

    "I've seen Artie's creations for the first time not long ago (maybe a couple of months) .. and even if he claims he's not that good and only fresh in this field .. i'd say his work says different in many ways.His talent in capturing new and fascinating places for my eyes is a real source of inspiration.My only regret is that time is so limited and i can't congratulate his work more often.Once you've seen his HDR's .. you just got yourself new limits to aspire to .. I thank you Artie and i hope to see more beautiful captures from your part!"

I highly desire an Artie calendar for my cubicle wall."

    "ARTIE, Well, I just discovered his photostream not too long ago and I’m so happy I did! =D

    He is one of the best photographers that has come to flickr.
    He has that magical touch that makes even simple shots so amazing, such fun to look at!
    From this moment on I consider myself a fan =D
    I'm not a professional photographer, but a visual artist nonetheless.

    Artie, Your work is always interesting, always thought provoking, and always worth more than a casual glance. Your work is a reflection of your personality; sometimes offbeat, deep and profound but always, always beautiful—and that’s only the beginning.

    Keep up the good work!"

    Artie is one of the nicest guys on flickr you could wish for a friend and contact. He unfailingly leaves a comment every day on my simple pictures and always makes me laugh. His images are the first I look for on my contacts page each morning and I am always delighted by his views of the amazing country he has made his own.
    You are finally getting the recognition you deserve Artie, mate, and may you have much, much more success in the future."

    "Finally a testimonial for my buddy Artie, a little late birthday present ?-)

    I was already a fan of Artie's photos way before he started doing HDR, when I first laid eyes on his photostream, I knew immediately that he had loads of talent to make a picture look good : a feel for composition and even more for colour !

    So when Artie asked me some info about HDR I didn't hestitate a minute and gave him all details I knew! His eager to learn and improve didn't lay him wind-eggs ( hahaha, I'm just translating a Dutch saying here, LOL ): he not only learned, now his a true HDR master and he is hitting explore more than I do !-)

    I recently reviewed his complete photostream and you should do that as well !
    You'll notice he was good from the start but is even improving his processing skill almost every week, my oh my what is this guy going to give us in the future!?

    Following Artie's photostream is not only plesant to the eye, his descriptions and comments will always make you laugh.

    Artie, I regard you as a dear friend, although I never met you in person, hopefully we'll meet one day in Australia or Belgium...

    C'ya

His collection of his photos are great. I didn't mean because of his Hardware (Camera) or his softwares(Photoshop, etc...), but because he has great composition in the most of his photos. Moreover, I like his way of using photoshop, it shows (for me) the future photography :). Furthermore, Artie comment on my photos he like it, and this is very appreciated to me, and also encouraged to me :).
    Keep it up Artie, you are really great and you have a great imagin for editing your photos"
