“We put our best – my best and his best – when we are at peace. To be able to translate and convey our thoughts and vision into imagery that define who we are for the past 10 years, is really a big achievement.” – ChuanDo & Frey
With a discerning eye for details and aesthetics that translate into high-octane images – these are the qualities that best define ChuanDo and Frey’s approach to photography.
Moulded by an art school background and the youngest son of distinguished Asian painter Tan Tee Chie, ChuanDo’s journey into collaborating and creating arresting images with engineering graduate Frey began in 2006.
The duo has been in the photography spotlight for 10 years now, and continue to make a mark in the field with regular work for international fashion titles such as Jalouse, Muse, Numéro & Numéro Homme (China), L’Officiel & L’Officiel Hommes (Singapore), Harper’s Bazaar (Singapore, China, Malaysia, and Thailand), Elle (Singapore, Spain and Czech) and Arena (Singapore).
As one of their more notable works, ChuanDo and Frey shot the album cover and images for Janet Jackson’s 10th studio album Discipline in 2008.
The duo’s unique creative style has also shaped and coloured the projects of various local and international commercial clients including Louis Vuitton (Asia), L’Oréal, ION Orchard Singapore, Levi’s, Motorola, Las Vegas Sands Corp, Starhub Singapore, Far East Organisation and Tangs.
As keen supporters of social causes, ChuanDo and Frey have, through their works, actively contributing toward community intitiatives such as Action For Aids and the Breast Cancer Society.
