Television Interview on VBuzz
Hi! I am Grant and I will be your host on this site and hopefully the photographer for your upcoming corporate project or life event.
I am a New Zealander who moved to Asia close to 30 years ago. I set up my photography business about 20 years ago, and during the time since then have photographed many interesting people and events. This includes Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger, former British PM Tony Blair, Prince Andrew from the British royal family, and also many Malaysian celebrities, VIPs and royalty. My work has been featured in magazines like Top Gear, FHM, Harpers Bazaar as well as publications in Japan, Australia and the USA. Several camera manufacturers have asked me to be a presenter at their camera launches and I have been a tester of some of the new and exciting cameras and lens systems prior or during their launches.
I am best known in Malaysia for Wedding Photography. I have been covering weddings for over 20 years and to date have covered possibly 600-700 wedding events. Some years have seen as many 50-60 weddings being covered. Weddings in Malaysia often have between 500-800 guests for a mid size wedding, with some of the larger ones having more than 2,000 guests. While most of our wedding coverage has been in both East and West Malaysia, I also cover weddings in the UK, New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the USA. In Asia we see weddings from all of the major faiths. We have covered Muslim weddings, both in the home and the mosque, small village kampong weddings, Bahai, Christian, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, Beach and various informal modern styles of wedding. If you are looking for a good, experienced wedding photographer, you are in the right place. My philosophy when shooting weddings is to shoot every wedding as though it were my own. Please read what past clients and their friends have said by clicking on the “Rave Reviews” link here or elsewhere on this page. Bookings are often 12 months in advance, and enquiries up to 24 months in advance are not unheard of so booking early is prudent.
I also do a lot of Commercial & Head Shots Photography. This is primarily product photography for companies as well as corporate events, head shots, and stories for company web sites. Clients include primary manufacturers, medical as well as universities and colleges from Australia, the UK, and the USA who hold alumni meetings in Kuala Lumpur. Head shots have been a fun experience for me with people from the American DOJ, TedX Talkers, Comedians, Singers, an American PHD Aids researcher and Malaysian Miss World winners all being clients.
Family and Graduation Photography: My studio is in Petaling Jaya is excellent for Graduation and Family Photography. There is ample parking, easy lift (elevator) access for the elderly or infirmed, and my bright attractive studio is a good place to make those very important family photo heirlooms. The largest family group I have covered in it to date was a family of THIRTY ONE! Wow!
School Class Photography: Several schools employ us to do their annual class and year book photography. My partners and I provide a professional coverage for this to several schools in the region.
I love to do Underwater Photography: Usually this is provided for professional models in a controlled pool environment. I have also done some sessions for pregnant mothers and couples who want to experiment with their wedding photography being underwater, a trash the dress style photo shoot, as well as those who wanting to do something a little quirky. SAFETY is the most important consideration for these shoots. I am a certified diver and for shoots in the ocean we have rescue divers on standby.
Other services: I provide photography services for tourist groups to Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Melaka and other parts of Malaysia. I can also double up as a tour guide as well as an Emcee for events.
