Signature Photographers write-up at The Star, 27th June 2008

Signature Photographers

Signature Photographers has been set-up since 2002, at that time members are myself, Zung (The Photoz) & Jason Victor (Camwork Weddings) & David Chua (DCP, he decide to pull out a year later), we always hang around at Devis Corner, Desa Sri Hartamas to have discussion, share our ideas, new equipments together & so on. One day, by chance, we manage to organise a friendly meeting with Jim Liaw (Jim Liaw Photography), Edmund Tham (Edmund Tham Photography) & Louis Pang (Louis Pang Studio) at Finnegans, Desa Sri hartamas, we discuss about our passion, how we started as a photographer, different point of view looking at our industries, from our conversation, we realized that we should start something to benefits our industry, yes, a workshop for newly weds to understand more on our industry & to provide with tips & guidelines on how to successfully produce a beautiful wedding album full of wonderful images & look the best in their big day.
At that time, we have no name for this new group until one fine day, Zung suggest that we should continue the branding of Signature Photographers & everyone likes the idea.
Then I suggest to have a lady photographer & everyone ok with Jenny's work (Jenny Sun Photography, Australia & Malaysia base photographer).
So we've decided the date, 10th August 2008 for our 1st workshop, everything gotta start to plan now, Kimberly (Weddingsbyeternal) helps us to organize venue & some media sponsor, Edmund do all the layout (he really work hard on this, appreciate it), Jim help to write all photographer's biography, Louis come out with the title (Great Photo Great Eyes) & others involve in different areas.
Many thanks to Doris (Hotel Imperial, KL) sponsor the venue & organising their chef to present their banquet food during lunch break.
Once again, I would like to thanks those who making this event happen & sponsors like Nikon, Pretty In White, Vintage & Classic, De Rain & many many more to come.
We also planning for a goody bag with contacts & discount voucher from wedding industries players, of cause for those who sign-up with us within a period, discount will be given too.
Info & booking - &

Joyce & Yin Kee Pre Wedding session at Carcosa Seri Negara

Carcosa Seri Negara is one of my favourite location for photo shoot, nice building with a little green. Joyce & Yin Kee get to know me through a long lost friend, Selina who use to be together handle photo shoot for Ms. Read brochure many years ago when I'm still focus in commercial shoot. This assignment is challenging cause I've been shooting at this place more than 10 times, this round I would like to try something else, here are my favourite shots. Ohya! forgot to mention this, gown designed by VERALYNE FROM PRETTY IN WHITE.
