Sneaking past the new year

5 years ago

The last you heard of me, it was Christmas. Now we've sailed past the new year, found ourselves midway through January and I've been enjoying my little time off, maybe a little bit too much seeing that I've been reluctant to get back on the horse and into a fierce gallop.   I had a pretty good breather in Bali last week, hence the silence.[...]

The Mobile Photographer :: Lines, Patterns

6 years ago

The weekend is here!!!   I know it sounds sad, but sometimes I am cooped up in the office so much in the work week that when Saturday rolls around it feels as if I've escaped from prison.   My weekends tend to be packed, I try to squeeze every second's worth of activities out if there isn't a shoot happening. I feel guilty if[...]

Dankie Afrika

6 years ago

That it had been the trip of a lifetime would be the least I can say. Time was too short and the land was too vast. I may not have completed all the checks in my to-do list but that doesn't mean I left with a begrudging heart. Instead, my heart is so fueled up the wanderlust can be deemed sated for a while, or[...]

I miss the rains down in Africa…

6 years ago

At this very moment, I am (or should be) packing furiously for my trip to South Africa!   I'm excited because it's my first long vacation in this scale in eons!!! Sure, I've taken short trips here and there (mostly tagged with work trips too), but nothing beats flying far, far away to somewhere that is entirely unfamiliar and immersing yourself in the people, places[...]

Enjoy Cupcakes With Love

6 years ago

I am of the firm belief that amazingness has got to be shared (because sharing is caring), and aren't you lucky because this post has dual amazingness.   If you ever have a languid afternoon to spare, Cupcakes with Love comes highly recommended. Although their cupcakes are the type that might, at first glance, be lacking in the cream toppings department as we are all[...]

Engagements

Lin & Marc :: An Epic Bubbly Fun Engagement Session

6 years ago

Lin and Marc have personalities that complement each other so well, and they tell me it is a chemistry that is exacerbated by their love for rabbits. They love them so much that they wanted to incorporate them in the shoot but were unable to find the multitude of bunnies that was needed to fulfil the fantasy. However, we were adamant on being uncompromising on[...]

Looking Back Going Forth, 2011

6 years ago

Standing in the cusp between the changing of years, and the official start of work, I feel compelled to set a tradition on this blog. 2011 zoomed past with frightening speed and although I had been busy with many projects, sometimes so many I didn't have a chance to breathe, I felt as though I have not learnt much, which scares me.   It was[...]

Casting Down Golden Crowns

6 years ago

  Post Christmas 2011.   Wreath of golden cones and glittery sticks Materials hunted down in the eleventh hour Midst of the bustle of a jolly holiday's eve A premium price needed to be paid Then comes a fumbling twisting in a circle But wait, no glue gun comes to the rescue And when the handiwork finally completes Alas! Gone are the celebrations of the[...]

Looking Back

JENISE & KT :: A Cathedral Wedding

6 years ago

Today, I go back in time once again to showcase one of the earliest weddings I shot. Sometimes it's good to look back at older work, to see how much you've learnt, or to see if you're detracted too far from your origins.   Jenise and KT are a couple who proves that it is never too late in life to find love, or have[...]

ANALOGGING :: Beginnings

6 years ago

At my age, I sit in the era in between the old and the new, where digital seems to be taking over everything. I have four brothers who are younger than I am and I doubt half of them ever had the experience of handling film; that's how technology takes over an era. I consider myself fortunate that there are still many functioning film cameras[...]
