how do you be your battalion/unit photographer? who do you ask?
email your mp.


or if you are lucky enough, pull some strings.


or if you are mad enough, do some permenant damage to your body to get downgraded.

I used to be a PIONEER Magazine photographer... from 1996 to 1999(if I remember correctly) One of those dream vocations I guess... A couple of guys were from PIONEER as well... Ken Seet, Amos Wong(Russel Wong's asst, and if I'm not wrong, KF Seetoh(Makansutra)...

Thing is the criteria is that you've got to make the Pes E first... Without that, no matter how good, I'm afraid PIONEER doesn't want you. I think they rather keep the fit ones for combat, and train an average unfit guy to be a photographer... PIONEER Magazine belongs to MINDEF Public Affairs... but should you want to check out your chances, you can call the magazine itself and look for Angelina Low who's the Managing Editor of the famed magazine...

My Chief Photographer was Lum Ngia.... and never change since till now... Really strict and hard guy(used to be from Armour)... but he teaches... just that sometimes he gets into a CSM mood....Kekekeke....

That's not the only place where photographers are sighted in the army... but it's the best place to be, because it's the place equipped with all the equipment you can think of... Other dept that has photographers on board are Army News, Navy News, Air Force news, National Heritage Branch, SAF film unit, Special Investigation Branch, Military Security Dept(I think), Provost, FMLB(Foreign Military Liason Branch).... etc etc etc... and some I can't name due to security purposes...

i think so too. Bit too much info for comfort. Haha

k.seet wasn't a photographer there, by the way. And they didn't have "all the best" stuff, before '96, they were using primarily F90x and F3HPs outfitted with motordrives, shooting mainly on Provia 100s and 400s.
