Open University Graduation Photography in Petaling Jaya PJ

My studio is located next door to the open University in Petaling Jaya and is in an ideal location for doing graduation photos. Patricia graduated at the most recent convocation and popped in to the studio to have her family photos done. I approach it in the same manner as when I shoot weddings…pleasant friendly and shoot as many varieties of images as I can.   Originally posted 2016-10-31 11:34:28.View full post »

Family Studio Photographer Petaling Jaya PJ and KL

Family Photography in my PJ Studio

I have been asked by a number of people about family photography in my PJ studio, and so I decided to post up some shots from earlier today so people can see for themselves. I have chosen to go for a more modern look despite being asked fairly frequently for more traditional back grounds. People generally love the fresh clean look. Family shoots typically take about an hour, then they choose which photos they like the best which takes maybe 15 minutes or so. The whole process is fast andView full post »

bishops 50th birthday celebration

A Bishops Birthday

Bishop Popsons church gave him a wonderful 50th Birthday Celebration this weekend. Many of the congregation gave testimony of his dedication in helping them as well as the impact of ministries he is supporting back in his homeland of Nigeria. The church is multicultural, which is one of the beauties of this fine country. I really felt welcomed and it was a privilege to be part of the celebrations. The food afterwards was most excellent too! The Birthday Cake Originally posted 2015-10-25View full post »

birthday party at W Cafe Encorp

Hello Kitty Themed 1st Birthday Party

Yi Hui’s 1st birthday party had a Hello Kitty theme. It was held at the “W” Cafe at the Encorp Strand. The pink Hello Kitty theme was perfect for a 1 year old girl. One of the good things about hiring a photographer to cover a birthday is so you dont have to worry about running around trying to shoot moments as they happen. It enables you to enjoy yourself and you get back a lot more photos than you would have taken. Originally posted 2015-10-25 11:00:19.View full post »

Putra heights Birthday

Adriels 1st Birthday in Putra Heights

Adriel’s 1st Birthday was held at home in Putra Heights. There is nothing quite like having a children’s party to fill you with joy. In Malaysia it is a long accepted custom to put up marquees onto the street when having a wedding, birthday or wake. All races do it and drivers respect the practice. One of the problems at night is lighting them sufficiently for photography. Sharp eyed people will notice the use of off camera flash in these photos. In fact I do point out in one of theView full post »

Sikh Birthday Celebrated at the Gurdwara

I was asked to cover the 1st birthday and baby dedication at a Sikh Gurdwara last weekend. The ceremony began with some prayers, then we went out to do some portraiture while we waited for the guests to arrive. Then the main blessing ceremony was conducted followed by the cool Mickey Mouse cake and party.  As can be seen it was a colourful affair The photos below are small sample of the 350 images taken.

A Childrens birthday party at the Raintree in KL

I shoot birthdays quite frequently. The birthday featured below was a pool side one at the Raintree in KL. It included swimming, a clown, balloon artist and of course a nice birthday cake. Birthday photography is all about capturing the children having fun. Photographing the event is usually quite hard for the parents who are busy entertaining their children, or in the pool, or making sure the cake doesn’t melt! I make sure my rates are clear, simple, fair and straight forward, and thisView full post »

Baptism at St Thomas More Church in Subang

Baptism at Thomas More Church in Subang

I do a lot of family photography shoots to mark mile stones in families lives. For Roman Catholics one of the first of these is when their baby is baptized. Early in May I was asked to photograph one of these momentous events at St Thomas More church in USJ Subang. I try to keep these shoots very affordable for couples and tend to do a lot of them. Christian baptism can be carried out by pouring, dipping, sprinkling and full immersion. Roman Catholic and Anglican churches usually practicedView full post »

It was his 80th birthday as well as 50th Wedding Anniversary with his lovely wife. The event was organized by his children and they blessed their father by displaying his milestones for his guests to enjoy. One of the highlights was the family tree, tracing the family lineage back 50 generations (800 years) to the Song dynasty. I just received a whatssapView full post »

1st Birthday Party Baby Photography at the Westin Hotel

Natalie’s 1st Birthday was held at pool side at the Westin hotel and featured family, friends, ice cream (Yummy!), birthday treats and a balloon sculpting clown. It was a fun and relaxed afternoon. Later we did some family portraits pool side. This was also my first experience with the new Fuji 56mm APD f1.2. Unlike Canon’s 85mm f1.2 this lens inspires confidence because it focuses faster than the Canon, and is almost always in sharp focus.   Originally posted 2015-02-07View full post »

Taylors university Graduation Photography Studio Petaling Jaya

A Double Graduation Studio Photo Shoot

What is better than one graduation?  TWO of course!! This was originally going to be Eric’s Graduation from Taylors University college but since his sister was back from studying medicine in Kursk the family decided to do two Graduation Photoshoots together. As you can see we had a lot of fun. I like joking with families to help them relax in front of the camera. As you can see from the samples below they received a great photo shoot.

I shoot birthdays for newborns, full moons, 5th birthdays, 30th, 40th, 65th and 80th birthdays as well as anniversaries.
