And yes, he is also one of the top 10 Wedding Photographers in the World by American Photo Magazine. He is also featured as part of the Masters of Wedding Photography video which both Jason and I watched in amazement how they mastered and created works of art.

He is the man behind many spectacular images such as the one above, and the ones below.

He never allow the situation or the environment to dictate the outcome of his work, instead, he sees opportunities, angles and composition to create his masterful works of art.

Here’s a little video clip about David about composition.

 

Having met him in person recently, I can say that David has a big personality. He’s cheerful, fun and is as much an entertainer as he is an educator.

Here’s a fun pic of David with both of us…

Do check back soon for some details on his workshop soon.

We finally got this issue. The hardcopy right in our hands!

Photoshooting Carl was a breeze! Talk about working with a professional. He knew how to stand, where to stand, how to turn and angle himself. Easy! The tension was that we were photoshooting a 10 year plus veteran!

 

Carl is an international  model and has been so for the past 10 years or so. He has been travelling extensively an has done numerous campaigns including Diesel, Levi’s and many other brands like Rexona, Nescafe, Nintendo as well as the lastest advert featuring the brand new Honda Accord. He also had served as judge, speaker and as mentor to many talents. He has set up his own creative and talent company called RollModels.

 

The day started as usual. The magazine gals were thoughtful enough to buy us a wonderfully delicious bread with some filling. I was not sure what the filling was, probably chicken sausage slices with ketchup, mayo and some other sauce. Very tasty.

Anyways, I digress… back to the photoshoot. ..

Jason going through the brief and some direction… well picked up by Carl.

Some final adjustments…

And the shoot was on the way… and of course, minor adjustments which needed after test shots.

The team behind the scenes. We had a large team for this photoshoot; the editorial, wardrobe and make up. And of course, photography.

Carl was very hands on, seen here checking photos to get his posing right. Oh, by the way, Carl is also a photographer.

Carl and Jason going through some points with the wardrobe team to make some adjustments.

Jason going through the photos with our editor for confirmation on hitting our brief while Carl was there taking it in.

and… here’s the one of the final shots before off to the next location.

General set up for the second location.

I could sneak in a couple of shots during the short breaks in between.

The team anxiously awaiting results from the second location.

… reviewing photos…

.. and the photoshoot continues..

We had a video crew as well…

Great interaction and feedback and suggestions.

After nailing several shots, including this one…. away we went to the next location!

Oh.. it was this location which we got our covershot!

Next location.

 

And one final check before wrapping up for the day.

 

It was really fun and exciting working with Carl. It took photoshoot professional models to a whole new level.

We met Carl again during a Today’s Choices event. Great catch up. Photo credit to Today’s Choices.

Bryan and Sherene is such a sweet and nice couple. They are warm, friendly and fun to be around. So it was no surprise that their wedding was a real joy to photograph.


This wedding saw one of the most fun encounters between the groom’s men and the bride’s maid. Both sides filled equally with fun. The bride had a bevy of pretty bride’s maids while the groom had his team of zany brothers, eager to take on the challenges which awaits them. The result was a great fun time and a great retrieval of the bride.

By the way, there’s a slideshow after the photos. So do continue all the way to the bottom ya! :)

As you can see in the following photos, our cameras love them as both Bryan and Sherene are naturals in front of the camera and this made our job so much easier.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The day started early in the morning as usual. The cheerful bride was extremely excited while the she prepares for the day ahead.

 

 

 

 

 

And.. after much preparation..

… they were all set and ready!!

 

 

On the groom’s side….

The groom and his brother’s were all set to face the fury of the bride’s maids.

This was just before all the fun started. All prim and proper!

And this was during the games. A bunch of fun and very sporting fellows.

I could not help myself from laughing during the games. They were really into it.

After much fun, laughter, screams and painted faces… the groom left with the bride!

And made their way back to the groom’s place.

And before they called it a day to prepare for the dinner reception, the obligatory bridal bouquet toss!!

Any guess which one of the beautiful bride’s maids got the bouquet?

And one final photo … or two… with the bride’s maids and ..

the brothers.

One exciting and fun wedding this was. And thanks for having us as your photographers. We wish you all the best!

Oh.. and do check out the slideshow we prepared for them for their dinner reception.

Recently we had the wonderful opportunity to photograph Nadia Heng for Today’s Choices Magazine. She was on the cover!!

Nadia is such a wonderful person to be with. For the lack of a better description, she lights up the room simply by walking into it. She is that brilliant! She is easy to talk to, easy going and fun. None of those primadonna syndrome which some may choose to exhibit.

Nadia is a former Miss Malaysia-World 2010/2011 and is currently Hypp TV Host. She is also XIXILI’s ambassador and Asian Shark Conservation ambassador. Oh.. and should you need an emcee, Nadia’s your girl as she too is an awesome emcee.

The photoshoot location was at Saujana Hotel just off Subang Airport Road. Our first location was at Senja Restaurant. Although named in Malay, Senja is actually serves fine Italian cuisines. The aroma of the wood fire really gets your appetite going. Anyways, back to the shoot.

The restaurant is flooded with light which makes for wonderful natural light shots.

But of course we snuck in a shot or two with creative lighting.

Very interesting lighting we had that day.

The restaurant were kind enough to bear with us while we move some tables and chairs to make way for better angles.

We had load of fun photographing Nadia. As you can see from the photos, the team were enjoying themselves.

Nadia was always on hand to review, comment and improve on the photos!

See what I mean? At each location, and each set, Nadia makes sure that everything is up to par, especially on her end.. and to a certain extend, help us improve the photos.

Oh… there was an awkward but extremely hilarious moment. Not gonna post it up here. But you can, by all means, ask us :)

And last but not least.. here’s a quick group photo before we waved goodbye and got caught in the rain trying to get back to our parked cars :S
