I had the opportunity to work with Orchre Pictures and Starhub Singapore to photograph Team Kiyah-Splashh!, an independent dragon boat team that has represented Singapore in many local and oversea races.
For those who are unfamiliar, dragon boat is an intensive and adrenaline-pumping team paddling sport that requires a boat of 20 paddlers, a drummer and a steers person paddling to cross the finish line faster than their competition. It's also a team sport that demands power, speed, synchronization and endurance all at the same time.
It is an absolute honour to be on a dragon boat with Team Kiyah-Splashh!, a bunch of guys and girls who are madly passionate about dragon boat. They are also a closely-knit group that trains together regularly, striving to be the best in Singapore.
The experience was a very exciting and intense one. Just by sitting at the front of their boat witnessing how they give every bit of strength and power in every of their stroke to push the dragon boat through the unforgiving waves beating against their boats.
This experience fueled my passion and desire to give my best shot in everything I do and face my challenges without fear.
