Samuel Ow |
Aspiring designer and photographer, Samuel Ow, is currently a third year student pursuing a Diploma in Mass Communication in Ngee Ann Polytechnic.

Samuel has always had a passion for design and despite having an impressive portfolio, he has insisted that photography isn’t his main forte.

In fact, he only picked up photography when he realized that it was essential for him to take his designing work to the next level.

When quizzed on his inspiration, Samuel has largely credited childhood friend, Josiah Jeremy, as having influenced his work. He added, “He was the first creative person I knew and throughout the years, he has been pushing me beyond my limits and has encouraged me all the way”.

Speaking from a designer and photographer’s point of view, Samuel has pretty unusual aspirations with regards to his photography and design. He has said that he hopes to use his talents in setting up his own F&B outlet, which was definitely not something that I had expected.

Visual influences I could make in this world turn me on.

Aside from that though, the 20-year old student has been keeping busy at the helm of Sammmsation Productions, a media platform he started up that specializes in web design, photography, and graphic design. To date, Sammsation Productions has worked on numerous projects for renowned brands and clients such as Tangs, Home Club and Butter Factory, just to name a few.

It’s not always been all fun and games for Samuel though, as he has stated that he does receive really negative and nasty comments from his own clients, saying, “It may be difficult but we have to face it and keep improving.”

Well with such a positive attitude and a glowing track record, it would seem that Samuel Ow is well on his way to leaving his mark on the media industry.
