About the Photographer

Borned in Penampang Sabah and currently residing in Sandakan Sabah, he started his photography as a hobby back then in 2007. That hobby quickly turn into passion as he ventures more into the world full of artistic where only limited by one's mind and imagination. Born under the sign of Gemini, he simply love to add different elements and ideas to create a different world with his lenses.

Working with Malaysia Airlines added extra advantages to be in different part of the world and captures the beautiful architectural and cultures and instill them in his trusted lense. It also added another big advantages as capturing once in a lifetime moments in different part of the world would be possible and less charged..

Happily married, his wife also shares the beautiful art of photography and has since became his sidekicks in events or even simply any outing. Together they became a great partner in crime and added more colourful touches with her faminine touch and his artistic eyes.

To sum up it all, they simply put life in their photography and hope you became a part of it too.


God bless ...

To be a photographer, one must ....

Sometimes some couples wonder why some photographers charges their services to the roof and very ridiculous prices. Is it really hard to take one shot? Is it really hard to learn the shooting techniques? Is the equipment really expensive that they have to charge to the max just to get their investment back? Some even wonder that with the booming of budding photographers out there, can't i just buy one DSLR and became an instant photographers myself since the charges are equivalent to one set of DSLR unit? Well, here's why my friend ..

To be one good Photographers, one must posses the the following criteria .... 

1) To have a mind of a Math expert 
With focal length of 18mm , so the shutter speed setting must be 1/18 or higher, which with iso 100 required apperature close to F1.8 ! Need i say more?


2) To be a computer genius
All photographers know at least 70% on how the computer works, how to install the editting software, how to convert their raw material to easier smaller readable photos .

3) To be a painter
Able to edit a pictures is almost like painting one, only in a digital way. A perfect picture for a photographers sometimes is not so perfect in a real world, so to manipulate this, we use a bit of touch up using touch pen or mouse to add some extra shading .

4) To be a makeup artist
You'll be surprise that a photographer must somehow posses or develop a bit of makeup skill
regardless the gender because a person makeup will effect the photo quality. For instance, a makeup for a black and white portraiture is much stronger and uses a lot of glossy color compare to a normal portraiture which requires more matte color.

5) To be extra fit like a jungle trekker
C'mon now, you don't expect all those beautiful scenery shots comes from the back of the house do you.. To get that extra edge pictures, one must hike far away places and camp outside to capture that great dawn or sunset moment.  

6) To be a weather expert
One needs to know when the rain will fall, or when the sun will rise at precise moment or when the clouds will come and give you that dramatic moment.

7) To be a wedding planner
One must know how a precession of a wedding is, how long is the duration, when is the moment the couples will walk in , when is the toast , who is the family members, when is the couples wedding dance ... 

8) To be a great communicator
Why great communicator? well, a shy and silent photographer won't be able to direct a couple or people to do some pose that will give that great moment in photograph. 

9) To have and architecture mind
Able to see which buildings or places that can give that twisting edge in their photo

10) To have an artistic mind
A photographer must be able to imagine in his/her mind a picture perfect scenery or moment way before it happen and are able to simulate it. 

There are more other criteria and skill that one must posses like patient, observant, vigilant, discipline and creative before one can be called a Photographer. So the next time a good photographer charges you a certain price that you thing is ridiculous, check back his or her work in the net or the hard copy and then decide, wether you just want a picture or you want a memory of a moment captures.

  2. BSCH, tks for the comment. We all go through a learning process, I myself haven't reach a level where i can be proud off because in photography it's a learning process. Those who thinks they have reach the highest level and stop learning will end up being too proud and will finally forget why they are into photography at the first place, will get lost along the way and will finally stop loving the art that make them who they are now. Keep up the good work BSCH, your pictures are great too.

    rgds,
