Brimming with ideas, especially in the visual communication arts and photography, he sees a piece of white paper as a canvas for all possibilities.

Alan started in the commercial photography world after graduated with a degree in photography from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, USA in 1995, and was soon attracted to the fast pace of the news room, he joined The Straits Times, Singapore’s main English-language broadsheet in 1997. During his time there, he produced countless images for cover pages, celebrity portraits, and documentary photos. His work has won him many local and international awards, including Lucie Awards- International Photographer of the Year, Nikon Photojournalism and WAN-IFRA. Over the next 12 years, he became the paper’s most sought-after feature photographer, and was promoted to senior Executive Photographer.

After leaving The Straits Times in 2009, as passionate as ever about photography and visual communication, after Alan left his high post in the paper, he set up Alan Lim Studio and Eleven Photography to continue doing what he does best, turning a piece of white paper as a canvas for all possibilities. In the same exciting year, one of Alan’s highest achievement in his career happened when he was awarded by Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to conceptualize a series of his portrait. Just a few years before he was assigned to photograph the Prime Minister’s father, the late Lee Kuan Yew for his memoir.

In early 2010, Alan founded the School of Photography Singapore to share his experience and knowledge with all photography lovers. As a photographer mentor and educator, Alan’s goal is simple, to broaden photography culture and pass down his knowledge to anyone who embraces photography. By the end of 2012, the total enrollment to his courses has reached a total estimation of 2500 students from all over the world.

In 2014, Alan was appointed by the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore(IPOS) as the IP Creative Partner in Photography to broaden the awareness of copyright protection in photography.

Recently in 2015, Alan produced three important book projects:

  • Design District Singapore– Alan’s Street Photography showcase
  • From Clementi to CarnegieSiow Lee Chin‘s memoir
  • Not Born in SingaporeNUS Law
