I first worked with Edmund Bon from Loyar Burok back in end 2012 which also coincided with some pro bono work I did for Loyar Barang then. 3 years on, Edmund called me unexpectedly to explore working together on a photo shoot for his newly merged law firm AmerBon. Prior to this, Edmund has been running his own firm at Bon Advocates for a year.
The brief was simple. Make them look like, NOT lawyers! At least for the casual shots.
It's been 3 years since Jonathan, a college mate and good friend came by my studio for a family photo shoot. Yes, 3 years in a blink. Time flies.
Only difference this time was an addition in their family with the arrival of a new baby girl and presence of some relatives. Due to space constraint in the studio, this was just about pushing it to the max.
It has been my first time visiting Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon, an island situated south of India in the Indian ocean. This short 5 day trip to Sri Lanka saw me spending only 1 day in Colombo, while the rest of my time was spent at the vicinity of Mirissa beach, Galle Fort and the rest at Ella, the "Cameron Highlands" of Sri Lanka.
Unfortunately, the only camera I had with me; the Fuji X-T1 broke down on me on the very first day!
