Cause & Effect Studio was founded by Bene Tan.
His affair with photography was not love at first sight. Trained formally in Graphic Design, Bene had a brief brush with photography in art school. It was only ten-odd years later that he picked up the camera again. The hobby quickly took root and becoming a professional food photographer was a natural transition. Work has led him to explore across the world of photography— from commercial, editorial, interior, event, portraiture, fashion, still life to food.
Through the last ten years, Bene nurtured his passion in food photography and begin sharing experiences with photography/food enthusiasts alike. In year 2008, he organised his first workshop and has been holding workshops periodically ever since. He was also invited to give talks and teach at organisations and institutions, they include MediaCorp, People's Association, Maris Stella High School, DBS Bank Ltd, NUS and National Library Board.
