History HD on Cignal Launches Canon Photo Face-off + Win a Digital Camera

As a photo enthusiast, Canon 5D Mark II user and part of Shuttercount team, can you guess what is my favorite reality TV show? Hint: One Pro, 5 Amateurs.

History launches its first original reality competition series, Photo Face-off. This exciting 6-part reality series features professional lensman, Justin Mott pitted against five amateur photographers. Love taking pictures? Are you a discerning camera user looking for an entry level digital camera? Then this is one show + contest you don't want to miss:

Their goal is to make use of the story-telling power of high-impact photos to revisit and explore the rich history of key destinations across Asia. See the show in high definition as it premieres on September 23, Tuesday at 10:30PM on Cignal Channel 118.

In Photo Face-Off, Mott embarks on a journey around the region, learning through the different lenses and unique perspectives of the amateur photographers he’s pitted against. Challenging him are Tan Jia Jun, an events company intern from Singapore; Singyuin Christy, a humanitarian and documentary photojournalist from Malaysia; and Hoang ThiLan, fashion and retail maven from Vietnam. Completing the group are Willy Lesmana from Indonesia and Richard Silaraks from Thailand, both of whose works have won and been awarded at photography contests.

From camera techniques and equipment, to knowledge of the local places, Mott and the amateur team battle it out in three challenges (Speed, Theme, and Extreme), with the final round set in Kenting, Taiwan – an unfamiliar place to all five contenders, and where Mott sits as one of the judges. Joining Mott in the judging panel are resident judge Kevin Ou, together with Singapore’s celebrity photographer Russel Wong, Malaysia’s TeohPengKee and tech blogger and photographer Brian Chong, Indonesia’s Rodrigo Ordonez and DewandraDjelantik, Thailand’s creative director Joey Aung, and Vietnam’s film producer Kathy Nguyen and photographer Olaf Mueller.

The winning lensman will win the ultimate amateur photographer’s dream: an all-expenses paid trip to glamorous New York City to photograph some of the world’s biggest stars, and a trip to Japan’s Canon Photoclinic.
