About Mentorgraphy

I am currently using  Nikon Z 9 , Z 7II as my main cameras. As for lenses , I use an assortment  of Nikkor lenses ranging from 14mm all the way to 400mm focal lengths. 


My strategy in photography is to excel  in all genres.  Genre wise I especially love shooting nature, sports, wildlife, landscapes , travel, portraiture and macro photography.


Major milestones included the time when I freelanced  for Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) as a sports photographer in the 2010 Youth Olympic Games. In Dec. 2013. I also covered the 2013 Myanmar SEA Games in Nay Pyi Daw , Myanmar, the 2015 28th SEA Games / 8th ASEAN Paralympic Games in Singapore and the 2017 29th SEA Games / 9th ASEAN Paralympic Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for Sport Singapore. 

I also participate competitively when time permits , entering International Photography Salons &  competitions with many successes for example, when I came in Top 10 in the 2013 "Let's Take Flight" Travel Photography Competition & winning the Honorable Mention award in the Nature segment of the 2013 Kontinent Awards.

In early 2016, I garnered the title of PEOPLE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2015 after winning the People category in the Professional section @MONOCHROME AWARDS


My work has been published in numerous magazines & publications from major newspapers in Singapore to Discovery Channel magazine.

In 2012 I founded a photography group called MENTORGRAPHIANS as a means of "giving back" to the photographic community by mentoring passionate and budding photographers. In 2021 , I established MentorgraphyZ to promote the use of mirrorless cameras.

In 2017-2018  , I was selected by Nikon Singapore to be a Nikon D850 Professional Photographer.

In 2021 , I was the Zcreator (Ambassador) for Nikon's latest flagship, the Nikon Z 9 , featured in Nikon SG's Z 9 marketing film & was part of the worldwide Z 9 Launch in Dec 2021

Since 2018 , I am a Nikon Singapore  School photography instructor & Technical Consultant.

Hi, Mentorgraphy is Andrew JK Tan.

I am a very serious hobbyist and also a freelance photographer. I have been involved in photography for over 35 years now.

I started photography shooting mainly with 35mm film (negatives) and slides (positives).

In the late 1990s , I started exploring digital photography and digital post processing. This involved scanning my slides & negatives into digital files & post processing using Photoshop 4.0 ....... finally in 2007, I embraced digital photography with the acquisition of my 1st digital DSLR.
