There are many significant moments in our lives that we wish to capture in pictures.
From coming into this world, attending school for the first time, graduating, to meeting your significant other and getting married. The list goes on and on. It is these moments that we wish to look back on in the future and pictures are the best way to capture these beautiful yet fleeting moments.
If you’re a freelance photographer and are looking to make your mark by setting up your own photography studio, SBL Singapore is here to assist you should you require additional funding.
An avid freelance photographer, Mr Lionel Lim used to take on adhoc photography work. His expertise covered photography projects such as portrait, wildlife and food photography. On the other hand, his friend turned business partner, Mr Anthony Wong, specialised in more large scale photography projects such as wedding, corporate and family / baby photography.
The both thought it was a great idea to combine both their expertise in the relevant fields of photography and set up their own photography studio. With both their combined efforts, they were also hoping to bring in videography services in the fututre.
Their aim of the photography / videography studio was so that they can offer their customers with specifically tailored packages, be it indoor or outdoor photography, to suit their needs. However, as with the work that goes into setting up your own business, including the costs, they sought the help of SBL Singapore to jet set their business venture.
We provided them with the funding for things such as manpower, equipment, rental and advertising costs. On top of this, we also gave them advice on the basics of starting your own business venture and the things to take note off. Today, Mr Lionel Lim and Mr Anthony Wong are proud owners of Eclipse Photography Studio.
