Jino is a passionate and dedicated hotel, interior and architecture photographer based in Singapore. He travels the world capturing wonderful destinations, amazing hotels and beautiful interior designs. Once a night owl having spent over 15 years as a musician and in sound engineering, he traded late nights for early mornings and self-taught himself photography in 2003. Like many of his peers during that period, he started his professional photography career in the event and wedding photography industry before finding a niche in destination photography in 2006.


As a destination photographer, he achieved great success and recognition and has won several international awards. He managed to work with esteem brands such as Singapore Airlines, SilkAir, Turkish Airlines and with many travel operators and publications. He was invited to be one of the judges for National Geographic Channel photo competition in 2012 and leading the winners to a bootcamp in Bali.


Fast forward to 2015, he found a new direction and passion in hotel, interior and architecture photography and started moving his business in that direction. As a "new kid on the block", Jino almost immediately managed to secure jobs from interior design & architectural firms, design & build contractors and in the hospitality industry for hotels & resorts, both locally and in Japan, Bali and Vietnam.


Today his main focussed is primarily in the hospitality, interior & architecture photography business. As he continue to serve local and international demands passionately, he is working his way to greater heights as this new journey has just begun.
