AGWPJA Q3 2014 Contest Result

Winning awards is never an objective on my mind when I shoot wedding or pre-wedding, the objective of a event coverage is always for the precious memories for my client; couples who believe in my style of work and allowing me to be there at their precious day to document heritage memories for the family.

However, once in a while, when one of these photo wins an award. It becomes a bonus and little recognition for me and serve as a reminder that I am always as good as my last photo and I have to keep pushing the limit and works on the creative aspect of my work.

I received one more good news for another award from AGWPJA latest contest result.  : )  Quite a nice way to a closure of 2014.

Thank you everyone for liking my style of work. : )

Mac and Joy in Sydney

Though this is not the first time I shoot pre-wedding in Sydney, the beautiful city always showcase itself with many surprises that awaits to be discovered.  Shooting this pre-wedding for Mac and Joy was really enjoyable as both of them are natural and candid in front of the camera and to top it off with the beautiful lighting in the southern hemisphere; blue sky, cooling weather and amazing lighting.

Everything becomes perfect and gorgeous. : )

Fred and Joyce – The Wedding Portraiture

I always gets excited when couple comes to me and tell me they like more abstract, artsy and graphical monochrome photos for their pre-wedding. When I first met Joyce and Fred, they are really very very sure of what they want and they tell me they really like those black and white photos which I have posted on my facebook. Though their wedding is going to be held in China, they want greenery and nice architecture graphic of Singapore building instead of the usual iconic landmark. Though it rained lightly on the day of shoot, I had a great time shooting for the both of them. : )

Thank you Nikon D3

D3S_3119-2as

Before I go into the content of this post, I wanna admit that I am a very sentimental person thus decided to write this post. : )

When I first got hold of a Nikon D3, it blew my mind with it’s state of the art noise control for low light photography which wasn’t possible on previous technology. It helped me in translating my vision and imagination into photographs that speak my thoughts. As a photographer, I always believe in retaining the ambience mood and lighting in photos and pictures should be as honest and real to what I have witnessed at the event.  Six and a half years on, the trusted camera have reached beyond it’s factory projected lifespan and with honorary, this camera is going into retirement.

Thank you Nikon D3, it’s been a great journey having you as a travel partner around the world to capture some of my best photos ever taken.I am sure for those who have used this camera before will agree with me the kind of connection you experienced with the camera, it becomes an extension of your mind and body to make images.

With the retirement of the D3, I have added a new Nikon D4s to my lineup of Nikon gears and I am confident with this upgrading, I will continue to make creative images for clients who have trusted my vision and photography work.

Walking around Tokyo with 35mm

This is a post which I am putting all of my “likes” in one post. I like Japan (who doesn’t?), I like black and white since the film days, I like street photography which can be easily seen in my pre-wedding works and I like to walk the streets with my favorite lens the 35mm.

Enjoy : )
