Time is slipping away. If I don’t bring my camera wherever I go, the moments will pass just like that. She is so precious. I don’t want her to grow up. Stay as you are and I will take care of you forever. My love for you is unconditional. Never I want the world to hurt you even in the blink of an eye.

Rahman & Rai

What a handsome couple! This portrait session was done at Rahman’s uncle’s house in Ampang. Thank you Rahman and Rai for the wonderful time and to your uncle for the cooperation given during the session.

I shot the whole session with Nikon F6 and Agfa Vista Plus 400. The weather was nice. Not too hot, not too cloudy. Enough and even light. Indoors was a bit challenging because it was dark hence I needed to open all doors and curtains to make way for light and still had to hold my camera as sturdy as possible at a minimum speed.

Childhood Friends (Part 2)

This session was a continuation from Childhood Friends (Part 1). I wish I could gather each and everyone of them to be in one session but unfortunately some of them could not make it. These girls were friends since they were in primary school and it’s amazing to see all of them are still together until now. These photographs are the evidence of their friendship.

Sometimes, headshot doesn’t have to be in the studio. Outdoors seem to be more fun!

This was probably one of the most challenging photoshoot I have ever had. It was my first time and I had no idea how to get here. It took me almost 2 hours to get to this location, Pantai Kelanang, Banting. I must thank a few people for making this shoot possible. Zamir and wife, thank you for the time you spent to show me the way and be there till end of the session. To my beloved wife Maisarah, you are my greatest supporter, my backbone. What would I do without you? I can’t thank you enough for what you have done. Nanti I belanja makan sedap-sedap okey.

My heart was telling me it was going to be a good day and it was! It was bright and sunny but only for half an hour. The rest of the session was raining and cloudy. In fact, I had to stop shooting in the middle of the session because the rain was quite heavy. All I could do was protect my cameras underneath my t-shirt. There was no place to hide. Nevertheless, it was a fantastic session.

Khairena, is a personal yoga instructor slash fitness consultant and also founder of eatcleanKL. I must thank Khai for the extraordinary yoga poses you did, time, effort and energy you gave for this session. If you guys want to live a healthy lifestyle, eat clean and be active, follow Khai on Instagram to know more!

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.
