Mr Amirul B Noor Rahman,
The Evergreen Secondary School Photography Club was formed to provide a platform for both students and teachers of the school possessing a wide range of experience and interest to come together in developing photography skills in a myriad of ways.
Currently, the Club is helmed by three teachers. They are : Mr Amirul, Ms Minette and Ms Rachel.
With the over-arching vision of being a student-centric Co-Curricular Activity (CCA), the Photography Club is always on the look-out in giving new opportunities for students to develop themselves holistically especially in areas of leadership and character.
The members of the Photography Club aim to gain and apply photography skills in the pursuit of the art of photography. They will be committed in their contribution to the school by taking photos during school events such as Chinese New Year Concert, Road Run, Honours Day and National Day Parade & Concert. Together, the members will work as a team as well as hone their leadership skills. Every photographer will also build their confidence so as to overcome challenges with a positive attitude.
Montage 2016 Photography Competition
The Photographic Society of NUS organised Montage 2016, which ran from the 19th of March to 17th of June, and is a photography competition that encourages students to tell stories and share moments through the medium of photographs. The theme of Montage 2016 is ‘Connection’. The EVG Photography Club went on a photography trail around the Esplanade area to be inspired and snap pictures that tied in with this year’s theme. EVG Photography Club member, Anna Ong’s entry, was selected as part of the Top 20 best photographs in the Youth category.
Canon PhotoMarathon 2015
Five of our EVG photographers participated in the Canon PhotoMarathon 2015 last Saturday (22 Aug). This is a highly anticipated annual photography competition held by Canon. During the competition, the photographers were challenged to create themed masterpieces under time pressure.
Our photographers took part in the student category and had to compete with participants from Raffles Institution, School of Science and Technology and even tertiary institutions like Singapore Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic and Singapore University of Technology and Design.
After 9 hours of grueling competition, our very own Leck Yong Chee from 3CMT was awarded the first prize for the theme "Defy your Imagination".
