His pictures have been exhibited internationally.

But Mr Chia Aik Beng, 44, is a graphic artist, not a professional photographer.

And he uses the photo-sharing application Instagram, which Facebook bought for US$1 billion (S$1.3 billion) last week.

He wasn’t interested in photography before he found his talent via his first Apple smartphone in 2008.

Mr Chia is one of three Singaporeans who have found international fame through pictures taken with their mobile phones and with the app.
