Koh Lipe Citizens

c1a c2 c3 c4

One of my favourite things to do while travelling is to capture faces of local citizens. To be honest, at first I was afraid to ask but when I think again, I have got nothing to lose. If they refuse, I will just walk away. Well, guess what? I was fortunate during this trip because non rejected me.

I’m not familiar with asking complete strangers to be photographed. In fact, this was my first time but all I can say is, smile, smile and smile and insya’Allah they will smile back at you. Once you’ve got the eye contact, the process becomes smoother. Most of the time they will say yes.

Most of my shots here were taken with Nikon F6 + Tudorcolor XLX 200 and Superia Xtra 400. Photo of the bald guy, shirtless with a scar line on his stomach was shot on Contax 645 + Pro 400H.

The Yohan Family

I met this Swedish couple, Yohan and Maria during my recent trip to Koh Lipe. They were having fun with the kids on the beach and I said, what a beautiful family. So, I approached and offered them if they wanted to be photographed. Obviously, the answer was yes and we spent a couple of minutes for a quick session.

I would like to thank Yohan and Maria for the wonderful session and hope you enjoy your stay in Koh Lipe and Langkawi. Till we meet again.

Nikon F6 + Superia Xtra 400.

Sunny & Meetha

A super nice couple. For those who don’t know, Meetha was one of the finalists of Miss Malaysia Indian Global 2013. And Sunny? I say he’s the lucky guy! Thank you so much guys for the wonderful session although later in the evening I thought I was going to have this session in the rain. Fortunately the weather was on our side.

For photographers: This set was captured on Nikon F6 + Agfa Vista Plus 400 and the last 6 photographs were shot on Contax 645 + Pro 400H.

Naziah & Syed Iskandar / Maternity Session

You can straight away tell when someone is so madly in love. Like people say and I quote, time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.

Naziah will be due in 3 months and I wish both of you a healthy baby and best of luck!

Sometimes you will come across someone who isn’t the smartest, wealthiest or most popular but they have the best akhlak (manners). Keep their company.

Dahlia’s Maternity Session

It’s been a while since my last maternity shoot. Had an amazing session with mom-to-be, Dahlia who is going to give birth anytime soon. All the best to you and the baby! To Kamal (the husband), if you’re in the labour room with Dahlia, do not black out LOL.

For this session I used 3 different types of film. On Contax, the usual Pro 400H. On Nikon F6, I loaded Tudorcolor XLX 200 and Kodak T-Max 400 for black and white images.
