Thanks for that considered and researched post! I certainly found it helpful to know how many weddings there were in Singapore in 2008.
Although your figures for potential wedding photographers are not definitive I also found it a good help not being based in Singapore.
However, you suggested you can shoot for the papers on an assignment basis if you are freelance. Is this really possible in Singapore? I was led to believe that all the photography work is kept in house for cost reasons. If you know otherwise that would be great to find out more about.
