Empowering Family Bonds

Firefly Photography is born out of the need to foster human connection in the digital age where mobile technology thrives. A photography session with Firefly is more than just capturing beautiful moments, it’s an experience where mobile devices are willingly left aside, where families and loved ones share activity moments together, smiles and touch thrive and we immortalise these everlasting glowing moments in the process. These materialised moments then become a reminder of the importance of bonding, thus Family Photography came to focus, with the tagline – Building Bonds, Glowing Moments.

2012 to 2013

Firefly Photography was founded and incorporated in 2012 by Benny and then partner. The first business partnership was formed with a deal tech company and an outdoor family photoshoot system was created to cater to the volume of service. This was when photography services were considered a luxury service experienced by few and this partnership was the market disrupter.

2013 to 2014

Due to the publicity from the deals, came a stream of enquires for private events photography such as birthday parties and studio photography services, renting studio from different addresses was no longer a viable option, thus in 2013, Firefly rented an office space in Yishun and converted to a fully functional studio and office as well as hired the first full time studio photographer.

2014 to 2015

Other photography studios sought the same deal from the same deal company and revenue dipped. Firefly had to pivot. We started to tender for Government projects and scored Chingay 2014 and 2015. Two major partnership was also formed, with Nestle and National Day Parade 2014. Firefly still partners with National Day Parade till today. Strong partnerships and event photography became Firefly’s major portfolio.

2015 to 2016

Firefly attracted multiple event companies to partner with and have covered many high profile events ever since. With companies seeking a one-stop service to provide videography and instant print services, in the mid of 2015, with the help of an industry partner who operates a video production house, Firefly extended its services to videography and instant print services.

2016 to 2017

As the brand grew, better customer experience and more manpower are required. Firefly moved to a bigger studio, built a stand-alone cyclorama wall, then, a first of such built to cater to family photography. The team grew to 7 man-strong and started to form more business partnerships such as Popular Holdings, Singtel and WTS Travel. This was also a time where then co-founder sold his shares to Benny and left the company for personal commitments.

2018 to 2019

Firefly continues hiring, a talented account manager joined and secured Firefly’s largest photography production with Wildlife Reserves Singapore, many more followed such as Singapore Flyer and ComfortDelGro. Find out more about these projects at Corporate Photography Singapore page. Partnerships were also formed with schools and agencies where creative talent is hired directly.

2020 to 2021

COVID-19 struck the globe and the circuit breaker was implemented, we had to close for a period of time and is badly affected, however, Firefly managed to retain all staff and pivoted to live-streaming, interactive video and 360 virtual tour services. Reflected on the past years, Firefly will continue to serve, improve and provide even better customer service, experience and offer innovative services to our clients and partners.

Our Core Values

When Firefly Photography was founded, the founder wanted to build a company that was service experience focused, innovative and prosperous. But, he also wanted to create a workplace based on honesty, trust, and a belief in treating others as we would like to be treated. An environment where we give thanks, strive to push ourselves to learn and grow. While it sounds so simple, it is extremely rare in these fast-paced times. Firefly live and breath with its core values at heart with the abbreviation GLOW.

Gratitude

Being grateful or having gratitude, showing appreciation to teammates, customers and partners are the building blocks of the studio. Firefly emphasises strongly on this core value and has the belief that this core value builds character and in turn, creates great people that deliver great product and services.

Learning

Never stop learning attitude is crucial to the success of the studio, be it creative skills or soft skills as well as learning from each other. This is the core value that allowed Firefly to be one of the leading photo studios today, with constant learning, exploration, embracing technology and new skills creates more opportunity to thrive.

Optimism

Having confidence, positivity and hopefulness tides over tough times, soar through good times and grants assurance. While generally, it’s easier to lean to the “dark side”, having great optimism has allowed Firefly to tide through times like the COVID-19 pandemic and pivoted to innovative services that we thought once was not possible.

Wholeheartedness

Complete sincerity and commitment in anything that one does is the very essence of living. We have a strong belief that one has to perform a task with wholeheartedness regardless of how tedious it is, venturing out of one’s comfort zone to perform a task with sincerity builds personal growth and character.
