Richard W J Koh is a Singaporean photographer who considers photography a mystical art where “one harvests light which comes from Above”.

In 2003, despite having a Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering and with two design patents to his name in just three years at HP (Singapore), he made a mid-career switch from R&D engineering to photography. This unusual career move was featured in the TV programme Career Blueprints in Jan 2007.

Richard’s photographs have won multiple international photography awards and have been exhibited in Singapore, Dhaka, Bangkok, San Francisco and New York.

Photographing on assignments since 1996, Richard has served many government organisations and multinational corporations. In the air, Richard has photographed from planes, helicopters, hot air balloons, covering areas in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Cambodia and Myanmar.

Richard runs Aerophotoworks (based in Singapore), specializing in aerial photography and photography for the aerospace industry. He has photographed a wide range of MRO subjects from precision engineering to landside and airside operations, various aircraft on ground and in flight. He is also the official photographer for Aerospace Singapore, a magazine by Association of Aerospace Industries (Singapore).

Richard's technical background enables him to appreciate and understand each client's technical subjects. His eye for aesthetics helps clients showcase their best in technology and services in compelling images.
