Photographer of the Week – Foo Pu Wen
By Joanna Lentini, April 20, 2017 @ 06:00 AM (EST)

Photographer of the Week, Foo Pu Wen, is an intrepid traveler and ocean enthusiast from the island nation of Singapore. Despite his close proximity to the Coral Triangle, Pu Wen spends his time traveling to the ends of the Earth in search of epic wildlife encounters—from the tropical waters of the Caribbean to our frigid polar regions. Whether he is sloshing around with harbor seals in Svalbard’s icy waters, or hanging with leopard seals in Antarctica, Pu Wen likes to live by the motto: “Ask not what you want to see, but what Mother Nature wants you to see.”

A love for the ocean and scuba diving ultimately led Pu Wen into the world of underwater photography and with guidance from several renowned photographers, he continues to hone his craft. Never without his wide-angle lens, Pu Wen's close-up and wide-angle wildlife portraits create a fun and engaging portfolio of underwater imagery. While his signature style and passion is wide angle, Pu Wen also dabbles in macro photography. During surface intervals, Pu Wen can be found at Sentosa—the Lion City’s southerly resort island—conjuring up his next adventure.
