Baby Portrait - Giselle Heidi Surin

Giselle is one of my photog buddy's daughter, Vincent Albert Surin. Funny name huh?...He's a Portugese Chinese and a mighty handsome dude. His wife, Felicia is also one beautiful lady. And Giselle certainly followed their traits.

This was taken when the guys and I had breakfast last Saturday at our usual hangout ie Oldtown Kopitiam which is situated only a stone's throw away from my studio. Shooting Giselle is not an easy task. But then again, shooting any baby portraiture needs a lot of patience and a lot of hard work. The result, extremely happy for my 1st baby shoot.

Pre-wed Sneak Peek

Lately, it seems having only 24 hours in a day is insufficient. God should've made an extra 5-6 hours extra in a day so that I could finish up my post production. I'm near to exhaustion. And I'm short of words to blog. Neways, here's a sneak peek of a pre-wed shoot a couple of weeks ago. Will post more when the couple gives me the green light.

Polin @ Silhouette Studio & Gallery (Set 3)

Not going to talk much here. But I am so totally hooked on the beauty dish I used on my studio's strobes. The model we engaged was Polin. The last time we shot her was about 2 months ago. Since the last shooting, Polin did improve tremendously. Enuff said, enjoy :)

Silhouette Studio & Gallery 2nd Outing @ Pantai Beserah

This was a tiring week. Loads and loads of office work, and not one photography job for the last 2 weeks. But alas, my partner Steve managed to contact 4 models and we hired them to model for us last weekend. And when it comes to photography, I am myself again.....putting back all my worries and stress from work behind. Here are some of my favourite shots of the day.

1st up is Peggy Yong. We hired her before for the studios runway show last October. She never fail to impress me with her poses.

Next is Jane Kwan aka Banana. Not sure why the girls call her that. Jane has what it takes to be a successful model. Love her facial expression.

Our 3rd model is Sue San Kok. She's rather new to the industry. But she has excellent curves and feature. One of my favourite as well.... :)

And last but not least is Joanne Ng. She has that cute Japanese innocent look that most men would die for....the Kawaii look :P

Some behind the scenes shots.....everyone was so eager to take a shot at the models. And the outing was a success. Kudos to the hard work and dedication of the Silhouette Studio team, models and photogs who were there to support us.

And last but not least.....the four models together.

Model Shoot - Evon Tan

We were waiting anxiously for Evon to arrive from KL. For those who are unfamiliar, Evon Tan is the up and coming model superstar in the photography world. She has graced some poses for Louis Pang (the master of wedding photography), posed for Joe McNally (the God of photography) who mentioned live on 8TV's Breakfast Show that she is one of the best model he had ever worked with (his career spans over 2 decades) and tonnes more. And we had the privilege to work with her last weekend.

We hardly had the chance to shoot one on one with a professional model before this, and having worked with Evon is the next best thing after my lovely wife, Rachel (see honey, you're still no. 1 in my heart). Shots after shots, Evon never failed to strike a different set of pose. She posed so much faster than the click of our cameras. We had about 3 hours of studio session and another 2 hours outdoor at the beach. We had so much fun even though we were sweating from head to toe under the hot, late afternoon sun. I'll be posting some of my personal favourites, but if you wanna view more, feel free to browse thru my flickr page. Enjoy :)

Model Photoshoot

Another week's assignment for an outdoor model profile shoot. Honeey Kui is relatively very new to modelling. She has very minimal exposure on the catwalks and her poses are still very stiff. However, she has the potential to be a successful model. She's so eager to learn and listen to instructions and directions from the photographer. At the end of the day, I was happy that I managed to get a number of shots to my liking, and most importantly, the model likes it too. So here are some of my shots.....

Before & After Portraiture Shots

Many of my fellow photogs did ask me this question. Why portraiture? Why does a structure of the human bone fascinates me? Easy question to understand, but hard for me to explain, personally. Let me just put it this way......you can imitate a structure of a building, you can imitate and build a landscape, but you can never imitate the bone structure of a human being or its character. One may undergo the excrutiating pain in plastic surgery and look like Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, but you can never be Brad Pitt or AJ. Each one of us are unique in our own way. That is what I like to capture. The person and his or her character will be reflected on print, and it can be cherished for a lifetime.

Post processing...... as to whether one should or should not enhance a picture, is for each individual photographer's own choice. Personally, there is no right or wrong to this issue. The most important thing is, so long your customer gives the thumbs up, then you're doing your job right. Let me end here with this before and after shots processed using on Adobe's Lightroom 2 software. Cheers and happy weekend :)

No more headaches.....

A woman comes home and tells her husband, "Remember those headaches I've been having all these years? Well, they're gone."


"No more headaches?" the husband asks,
''What happened?"


His wife replies, Margie referred me to a hypnotist. He told me to stand in front of a mirror, stare at myself and repeat
"I do not Have a Headache;
I do not have a headache, I do not have a headache.."

It Worked! The headaches are all gone."


The husband replies, "Well, that is wonderful."


His wife then says, "You know, you haven't been exactly a ball of Fire in the bedroom these last few years. Why don't you go see the
Hypnotist and see if he can do anything for that?"

The husband agrees to try it

Following his appointment, the husband comes home, rips off his clothes, picks up his wife and carries her into the bedroom.


He puts her on the bed and says,

"Don't move, I'll be right back."


He goes into the Bathroom and comes back a few minutes later and jumps into bed and makes Passionate love to his wife like never before.


His wife says, "Boy, that was wonderful!"


The husband says, "Don't move! I will be right back."
He goes back into the bathroom,
comes back and round two was even better than The First time.


The wife sits up and her head is spinning.


Her husband again says,
"Don't move, I'll be right back."
With that, he goes back in the bathroom.
This time, his wife quietly follows him and there, in the Bathroom,
She sees him standing at the mirror and saying,
"She's not my Wife.
She's Not my wife.
She's not my wife..."

His funeral service will be held on Friday.

Anuar & Ella Wedding Images

Hiya folks

This will be one quickie wedding post. Anuar & Ella (no....not the rocker lady!!) got wed last weekend, and I was thrilled to be the official photographer. Both of them fell in love whilst working in the same company....which is actually a Golf Course in Kuantan. We had this idea of taking some shots at the golf course, using a Driver and a golf ball as the props. It was a pretty simple wedding without much hassle. Both Anuar and Ella were so accomodating and were so eager to pose for me. I had so much fun during the session. To both Anuar & Ella, congratulations again :)
