Shoot for Top Gear Magazine of the Bufori Latoya in Kuala Lumpur

Serious driving through the narrow twisting roads

Top Gear and another auto magazine sent journalists to Kuala Lumpur to do write ups and a review the Bufori’s flagship La Joya. We took the team out to a kampung and let them loose so they could put the car through its paces and have some fun. Getting it’s tail to let go so it would drift the corners was made all the more exciting due to the narrowness of the road.

David and Nicki – Wedding at the Datai Langkawi

Destination Wedding Photographer Datai, Langkawi

The beautiful wedding couple at the Datai, Langkawi

David and Nicki called me to ask whether I could be their photographer for their wedding at the Datai resort in Langkawi. This is a beautiful location for beach weddings and is fairly secluded from the rest of the resort. Having the wedding in the evening meant we could photograph some lovely portraits as the sun set. It was a lot of fun and we all got tanned!

Maryam and Hezran’s Malay wedding was held in Maryam’s home in KL and I have posted this elsewhere on this site. The following evening their wedding dinner was held at the Dewan Besar Tun Rahah on Jalan Bukit Bintang, which is a popular location for Malay weddings.

Maryam and Hezran’s Malay Wedding Nikah

Originally posted 2009-02-20 19:58:49.

Maryam and Hezran: Maryam looked absolutely splendid at her Akad Nikah (Malay wedding) in Kuala Lumpur. One of the things to notice with this wedding is that there were three of us shooting it, each in a different place so as to maximise coverage, as typically there is no room to manoeuvre during the wedding.  I was inside the “L” shaped room in one of the corners so I could shoot the ceremony and guests by simply swivelling, one of my colleagues  (John Woo) was ensconced in the mezzanine floor so he could snipe from there with a telephoto, whilst my other photographer (Lim Hock Seng) was OUTSIDE the room which enabled him to shoot through the windows from two different walls.

A little anecdote from this wedding: I was pleasantly surprised by one of Maryam’s relatives when he came up to say hello. I recognized that we had met a year or two earlier when he had bought my rather extensive medium format 6×6 camera system. If I recall correctly, I was quite interested in buying it back!

Danny and Kirsty’s Wedding – Chinese Tea Ceremony and Banquet at the Sunway resort hotel

Originally posted 2009-01-10 13:09:14.

Danny and Kirsty celebrated their wedding day in January 2009 with traditional Chinese tea ceremonies and then followed up with a wedding banquet in the Grand Lagoon ballroom at Sunway resort hotel and spa. This wedding was full of emotion and a really fun experience. I believe it was this wedding that convinced me to start packing ear plugs for the traditional fire crackers we;come committee.

Behind the scenes at Martin Yans Asian Favorites on the Asian Food Channel

Originally posted 2017-09-01 23:10:51.

Chef Martin Yan was in Malaysia to shoot a series of shows for the Asian Food Channel called Asian Favorites. The link to the show can be found here and you will see a lot more photos I took for them. I wanted to put up some of the behind the scenes photos on my web site as it goes to show all the behind people and work that goes into a TV show like this. Guest chefs on the show included Chef Datuk Fazley Yaakob and Vietnamese Chef Hoang Minh Nhat.

On TV and movie sets anyone using a camera MUST be silent otherwise the sound of the camera will be picked up on the microphones.  There are two ways of doing this. The traditional method was to use a large and unwieldy sound proof casing known as a blimp. The second method is to use a mirrorless camera like Fujifilms excellent X-Series cameras. These are small, silent, and very easy to handle. Image quality is also superb. The Fujifilm X-T2 as my camera of choice on set.

Stunning Chinese Styled wedding on Penang Hill

Originally posted 2008-12-06 22:15:32.

Amy and Henry’s wedding ceremony and dinner were on top of Penang hill. They had a TROPICAL 60’s theme. This wedding was notable for absolutely STUNNING views coupled with what has to be the most precarious tea ceremony I have covered so far. I was hanging on from the out side of the small venue.

Corporate Profile Photo Shoot in my Studio and Surrounds

Originally posted 2017-07-11 09:15:49.

I do a lot of corporate profile photo sessions at my studio in Petaling Jaya and thought I should post some images up from yesterdays shoot so people know what to expect. I believe photo sessions should be relaxed, enjoyable and fun. This ensures my subjects are relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera which is how we get the best look.

Celine and Frazer’s wedding at the Holy Rosary Church and dinner banquet at Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur

Originally posted 2008-10-18 11:33:04.

Celine and Frazer’s wedding was at the Holy Rosary Church in Brick fields. It was a VERY WET morning as you will be able to see from the photos. After completing portraits at the church we went back for the traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony and then moved on to the Le Meridian Kuala Lumpur in Sentral for the dinner banquet.
