What is Friends of Tamron?

“Friends of Tamron” seeks to create a community of like-minded individuals who share a passion for photography through the glass of Tamron lens. It’s about celebrating the art of photography and the stories behind every picture.

We understand that each photographer has a unique journey filled with personal achievements, challenges, and milestones. Our goal is to share these stories, to inspire, educate, and foster a deeper appreciation for the craft.

How It Works?

The “Friends of Tamron” campaign is a curated experience, where the selection of participants is conducted internally by our marketing team at Tamron Singapore.

This approach allows us to carefully select a diverse group of photographers who have shown exceptional passion and dedication to their craft.

While this is a closed selection process, every selected photographer is chosen based on their unique perspective and journey in photography.

Once selected, photographers are invited to participate in an exclusive interview where they’ll have the opportunity to share their photography journey with the world.

From their first camera to their favorite photography spots, challenges faced, and their aspirations within the realm of photography, we delve deep into what makes photography a significant part of their lives.
