Jeanette + Lionel

 It was an eventful and action packed morning. The sisters are all well geared to “torture” the brothers and nowadays technology plays a part in gate crashing too, Lionel was asked to dance with his brothers and the video was immediately uploaded to Facebook. In order to enter the house, he must achieve 35 “likes” before the end of the gate crashing session. After about an hour of action, Lionel enters the house with 12 “likes” and lots of ang bao given out to the “sweet sisters”. Everyone had fun and it was a touching morning when one of the wish Lionel had for the marriage is he wished to live longer than Jeanette so that she don’t have to bear the pain of losing a love one if he would to depart first.  Lovely couple! Thank you Jeanette and Lionel for having me as your photographer. Wishing the both of you a blissful marriage. : ) Enjoy the photos.

AGWPJA Q2 2011 Contest Result

This Wednesday morning woke up receiving a piece of good news. : ) I have  won a international award for the latest AGWPJA contest under the Ceremony category. This photo is one of my personal favorite taken at Kester and Cecelia’s beach wedding at Sentosa. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for having me as their wedding photographer to make this image possible. : )
Here is the winning photo and the judge’s comment:

Ceremony Category: 18th Place
Judges Comment: This image finds compositional balance by weighting the expanse of empty space above the canopy with the myriad of details below. There is so much to see in this photo. People swimming, a lone palm tree, ships on the horizon, an attendee checking the back of his digital camera – not to mention the bride, groom and colors. And if that wasn’t enough, you have to love that Chinook helicopter dragging a flag at far-right.

Meeting the legend – Abbas

ABBAS 45 years in photography is a exhibition currently held at the National Museum. Abbas is a Magnum photographer and I am fortunate to meet him in person and attended his workshop on photojournalism. This legendary photographer who have covered many of the world’s most terrifying wars is a man with great vision, perspective and a master in the craft of black and white photography. I took photo with him but he don’t want his photo to be published or posted. As a respect to Abbas and agreed not showing photos with his face, here are some photos of the legend.

The exhibition is now on till 18 Sep 2011 at the National Museum.
