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.

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.

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
