Itâ€™s almost the end of the year now, and itâ€™s been one year and a half year since I started photography and owning my 1st ever camera. Itâ€™s been a fantastic journey so far. Iâ€™ve learn how to be a better person, make new friendsâ€¦amazing friends, and not only have I get paid doing what I like, I get to make people happy with what I do. Besides that Iâ€™ve also got blessed with opportunities to shoot with people who Iâ€™ve admire from reading their blogs, Jenny Sun, Patrick Low, Edwin Tan and Andy Chin. This all would have been possible if it wasnâ€™t for Grace Tan from Wedding Story and Alex Lam from Integricity and the team of people behind Shootfest. Iâ€™d believe that my journey would not have been boosted forward without this event and therefore I do owe you guys as well.
I started out learning my photography from forums and the internet, but with the guidance of my new found friends sight and perception with details and things around has changed. Iâ€™m not sure how exactly to put things in to words but I do sense the difference from what I see now when I walk around.
Besides meeting a whole bunch of great local photographer like Louis Pang,Â Robin Ng, Ian Chong, Jon Low and many many more Iâ€™ve also had the opportunity to meet greet and talk to international ones like Jerry Ghionis and CM Leung. I must admit it was a definately a great honor and pleasure to be able to talk to these people. Iâ€™ve been wanting to meet Jerry since I saw Masters of Wedding Photography and since then have fallen in love with the way he does his work. Hopefully next year Iâ€™ll get to meet Joe Mcnally who would be in KL for a workshop and seminar.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the ones beside me for their support and chance to grow my career in photography. Oh I must not forget the wonderful brides and grooms who Iâ€™ve shot tooâ€¦without the chance to shoot your wedding I would not be who I am today or have grown to who I am. Thank you once more for entrusting me with probably the biggest event of your life, and you and your other half be bless with the joys of life.
Iâ€™ve decided to be a little more active next year in photography, not in terms of getting more jobs but in terms of using the camera more. With that I would TRY to take a picture a day and post it on flickr and maybe my blog. Hopefully I could successfully have a complete 365 album.
With that I would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year and may the coming year be better for all of us, I know I may have missed you many many names but it doesnâ€™t I do not appreciate you help, advise or your presence in my life. You know who you are if you know me
