I have had some enquiries whether I shoot birthdays as a photographer. Yes I do! I shoot birthdays for newborns, full moons, 5th birthdays, 30th, 40th, 65th and 80th birthdays as well as anniversaries. As many of these shoots are for children, VIPs and others who wish to keep their birthday celebrations discreet and private, I do not post these on-line.
Please contact me for details.
One of the recommendations I have for birthdays:
“I hired Grant to shoot the photographs for my Father’s 70th birthday party at the Ritz-Carlton in Kuala Lumpur, February 2011. Grant even went the extra mile to make himself available to attend our food-tasting dinner a month earlier, such that he could familiarise himself with our main family members and to personally discuss my father’s requests and expectations of the photography. At the event, Grant was punctual, professional, and personable. He shot the event in accordance with our instructions and focused on the birthday-boy whilst still capturing shots of everybody in attendance, including all the family members and VIP’s. Throughout the night, despite being the only Caucasian at the event, Grant was discrete and blended in so as to not be a distraction. In the end, he delivered a skilful combination of both candid and posed shots, filled with happiness and the masterfully captured emotions of the moment. Both soft-copies and hard-copies of the photographs were delivered by Grant in a timely manner, without any fuss about photo-rights (which some other professional photographers make an issue off). As such, I would highly recommend Grant’s services, and look forward to using his services again, sooner rather than later.” ~ Lester Seow
