Just a quick post today as I am very busy at present with a variety of photography shoots: On Saturday I had a short studio portrait shoot with Freda Liu of BFM. It was a fun, relaxed photo shoot and we were finished in what seemed like no more than 60 minutes.
For those who don’t know Freda (most probably those living outside of Malaysia) she is one of the producers and presenters of “Enterprise” and “Tech Talk” on BFM 89.9. She has conducted thousands of live on air interviews with various people of note, both in business and people of interest including Julian Assange and meÂ :-). I met her way back (“in another life” according to Freda) when she was the Communications Manager for IBM Malaysia.
I was contacted to provide a photo shoot for Miss Universe Malaysia 2012 Kimberley Leggett for the run up to the Miss Universe 2012 finals in Vegas in December. Part of the experience for each contestant are the photo shoots in evening gowns and swimsuits so we simulated this experience to help Kimberley for her build up. Most Miss Universe contestants are not professional models (but many go on to become one) so these types of shoots are valuable. I found Kimberley to be excellent to work with through out the shoot and has nailed her poses well. After the hair and makeup wasÂ completed it was then on into the shoot which was for another 3 or so hours with a total of over 700 photos being taken.Â I can only post up a few of the images here as it is for internal use only, but I would say we had a very successful shoot.
Behind the scenes photos kindly provided by Selvam of Creative Imaging Works whose studio we rented for the shoot. Special thanks to Andrea Fonseka for providing the team and artistic direction.
We wish Kimberley all the best for the finals.

We covered the Kings College Alumni get together at the Mandarin Oriental hotel, Kuala Lumpur.Â The highlight was Tan Sri Dr Augustine Soon Hock Ong receiving a Doctorate from Kings College UK. Tan Sri Dr Augustine Ong is the President of the Malaysian Oil Scientists’ and Technologists’ Association and fellow of the London Royal Society of Chemistry.

We get asked to cover boards of directors and senior management fairly regularly. These shoots are usually for annual reports as well as web site usage. This photo shoot was for KPMG Malaysia and we decided to make this a fairly fun shoot for everyone, as is evident in the photos.
