Director Japan Creative Centre, Embassy of Japan
"I would like to express my appreciation and commend Mr Marcus Lim for his exhibition entitled "4 Seasons 5 Elements – Photography and Digital Art Exhibition" which was held at Japan Creative Centre (JCC) from 2nd – 15th June 2012. This exhibition was well received by visitors and guests of the JCC.
During the exhibition, Mr Lim also gave an Artist Talk "Travel Photography Quick Tips" which was attended by many photo enthusiasts. During the Artist Talk, he presented his quick-wittedness and pleasant demeanour which contributed to a cordial and insightful interaction amongst our audience as well as his in depth knowledge in the field.
Once again, I would like to express my appreciate to Mr Lim for his educational exhibition on behalf of the Japanese Embassy. I look forward to working with Mr Lim again if the opportunity arises in the future."

"My desire was simply to be able to take beautiful shots to capture those precious moments. I am neither the techno sort of person nor super conversant with DSLRs, much less the technical terms and innumerable gadgets. But this course provides a thorough coverage of the development of the manual camera to the current sophistication of DSLRs.
I have enjoyed every minute of the course as it armed me with the confidence now to manually handle a DSLR! What was most enjoyable and beneficial were the field trips we took. The very small size of the class enabled us to learn and ask questions direct from Marcus "live" and allow us to experiment.
The photoshop sessions were equally "heavy duty" and substantial as Marcus shared a lot of "tips" from his numerous years of experience. The workshop also provides a file with detailed notes as well. For all those looking for a good and comprehensive photography course, this is it! Enjoy!"

"Marcus is a friendly and approachable instructor. He is very knowledgeable in photography and knows how to explain things in a way that is clear and easy to understand. His dedication and commitment during the course is highly commendable."

"The Digital Darkroom Course is an interactive, personal and informative course conducted in a small group with lots of hands on on the digital darkroom techniques.
Technical information from the aesthetics of post-processing and guidance regarding ethical and legal considerations were also covered.
Marcus's patience, wealth of knowledge and experience and his willingness to share beyond the course outline/time have made it an unique and rewarding learning experience for all. The personal attention given to each of us has helped correct our techniques which is only possible from small group learning.
Tonnes of my supposedly 'wretched' photos have been saved after attending the Digital Darkroom course!!"

Vice President, UOB Asset Management
"Marcus has an in-depth understanding of digital camera operation as well as a unique command of artistic composition.
His passion in photography has guided us to apply photography skills and concepts on almost everything under the sun, covering buildings, people, landscapes, nature, etc and including the sun of course!
Having him with us during the outdoor shoots has been invaluable experiences. His demonstrations and critiques have raised the quality of my photography considerably and had greatly boosted my confidence to explore creative shots.
His commitment to help sincere students unleash their artistic potential is for all to see. Enjoyed his lessons and is looking forward to snap together again!"
