I never knew there is such a huge community of Myanmar refugees in Selayang alone! When I was sent by Rentwise to do a feature story on one of the learning centres in Selayang, I was both intrigued and excited at the prospect of meeting them in person.
Much have been heard and spoken about the refugee community at large but I've never been this up close and personal. So, this is definitely an eye-opening experience!
To feature Pigeon Malaysia's new range of premium apparel designs, I was engaged to photograph both of their cute and lovely selected talents; Megan and Noemi.
Saying that it's been really difficult photographing both these hyper kids is an understatement. It was actually a very physically and mentally-draining effort, but not without any enjoyment and satisfaction.
It can be a little daunting when the shooting location itself is a large cavernous space where you have to light using your small flashes. It's all the more difficult when you have to kill the general ambient but yet maintaining just some traces of existing hot light sources (e.g. table lamp, down lights) for mood.
Check out my recent shoot at Rentwise's warehouse on how I shaped my ambient lighting with small flashes.
I have just recently concluded a photo shoot of fitness personality, Herny Suraya at Tiffani by i-Zen, Mont Kiara. Coach Herny is an outdoor specialist and Head Coach for Daily Muscle Transformation Camp, a certified GX instructor for RPM and Body Pump, and a certified Yoga instructor.
Herny comes with over 10 years of hands-on experience in the Fitness Industry. She specialized in Fat loss, Outdoor Lifestyle Management, Pre & Post Pregnancy Fitness, Functional Training and Heart Rate-Specific Training.
I completed a commercial photo shoot for MSD's Women's Health Team back in early Nov 2012 as part of their newly launched awareness / contraception campaign promoting women empowerment by taking responsibility for one's own sexual health.
MSD Malaysia intends to educate young working adults (of both genders, with an emphasis on the fairer sex) on the importance of family planning by making an informed choice on the contraception methods available that can be used to prevent an unplanned pregnancy.
