I've returned for my second Krabi escapade exactly after two and a half years. Only this time, I was here to shoot a pre-wedding session for a client.
Other than that, I spent my free time roaming the grounds of this luxurious hotel in search for photographs and another full day on a sunset cruise.
Much have been mentioned about the crystal clear waters and sandy beaches of Krabi, but few would be aware of the fact that, Krabi is actually just a quiet small town located far from all the action.
On my second last day, I hopped onto the bus and made the hour-long trip down to Krabi town which was located far away from all the tourists buzz.
After many weeks of preparation which culminated with 5 hours of knocking on solid brick walls, the launch and running of my first solo photography exhibition, "Coast to Coast" is finally under way at Leonardo's Dining Room and Wine Loft in Jalan Bangkung, KL.
The cocktail reception began at 7pm at the Wine Loft. Though there wasn't a huge crowd, the small but cosy turn-out kept things warm and manageable. A few guests turned up unexpectedly, and that really made my day.
I'm in the midst of final preparations for my first solo photography exhibition, titled Coast to Coast which will be held in Leonardo's Dining Room & Wine Loft, Jalan Bangkung, Bangsar on the 12 February, 2012. It's a small selection of 22 high quality prints for sale, from my over 100 pictures of all things coastal, though "coastal" here has a pretty loose interpretation, as you may discover soon enough.
Coast to Coast is a collection of pictures depicting where the edge of the land meets water, its geographies and the people who have carved a home out of it for themselves.
Finally, I'll be having my first joint photo exhibition at Pelita Hati Gallery next Wednesday, titled "Being There" in support of World Hepatitis Day, Malaysia. I'll be exhibiting 22 limited edition 24" x 16" prints (all first edition out of seven each), printed on Digital Type-C print on Kodak Endura Paper.
Most of the pictures are drawn from my Coast to Coast series and extensive travel collections (UK, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Japan and Oman). All prints will be on sale. A portion from the proceeds of the sale will go to the World Hepatitis Day, Malaysia fund.
