What started as a hobby after he moved to Singapore in 2008, has blossomed into a career. Danny Santos began capturing pictures of any strangers that look interesting on Orchard Road. He discovered a unique theme that got him some interesting shots. An unexpected rainstorm can change a person’s day in a snap. For some it can turn a good day sour, for others it can make them run for cover; some just laugh, realizing that getting soaked is inevitable. Bad Weather is a series that’s sure to make you smile because rain tears down the “put-together” image of people and let’s their personalities shine through. His goal is to show the pulse and beauty of Orchard Road through his candid shots of the busy street.
Danny explains why he loves street photography to Pondly:
“Nothing cooperates with you.. not the weather, not the subjects, not the situation. You have to make do with what’s available…But on few occasions when all the elements just come together, and you’re at the right place at the right time, the feeling of ‘getting that perfect shot’ just doesn’t compare to anything else.”
Danny has been a web & graphic design professional for 10 years. See more of Danny’s Bad Weather photography from the streets of Singapore as well as his commissioned work on his website. You can also follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
