Coffee with Steve: photographer, father, driver-partner

In this series, the Gojek team sits with our driver-partners over a cup of coffee, as they tell us about their lives.



Driver-partner Steve Diong has seen many things, including Singapore from above, multiple luxury homes and hotels in the region, and the insides of a human body. 


He does all these things with his camera lenses – the defining tools of his trade. What started as an interest during his youth has since grown into a full-blown passion. Fresh out of national service, Steve joined a photography studio as an apprentice for three years, before deciding to embark on his own as a commercial photographer. 


“It’s definitely an interesting job. I get to see a lot of new stuff before the public sees it,” says Steve, explaining the ropes of commercial photography. “For example, a heart centre’s new hybrid lab, which lets the medical team scan and operate on the patient immediately without having to do it in separate labs.”

Besides taking these pictures, Steve is also a man of many talents and interests! He helps entrepreneurs with their franchises, spends time with his 3-month-old daughter and wife, and participates in off-roading in his free time: the act of driving through jungles and other natural terrains. 


What makes earning with Gojek ideal for Steve? “I’m quite free after my personal projects, so I just drive around the rest of the time to earn a little extra.”
