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 ...

".. Thank you for believing. Photography is about what the eyes captures, the emotions that the heart felt and finally embedding all of it in a photograph. Now thats what photography is all about..."

When in crossroads...

Ahhh it's so great to be back on track in the world of photography and in my photo blogging. You see I have been shy'ing away from my camera's and laptop as my time was occupied to prepare for an exam that i have to take which is very tough actually. My actual work requires me to upgrade all the time so courses and examinations are things that i have to go through for the rest of my aviation career. Well i'm glad that i went through it with flying colours, but in doing so i have to turn down one great photography project which really do made me wonder, why can't life be much easier ? Why do we have to make choices which is more important, what we really WANT to do or what we reall NEED to do? Why are we always in a crossroads?

I bet every single aspiring photographers started taking picture as a hobby, then it became a part time job and finally when the business have bloom they quit their day time job and became a full time profesional photographers. During the first year of the photography as a part time job, things are much easier because photography would be the last thing a person would think off when work requires attention. However thigs would start getting a little bit tough but still under control  when few photography outing have to be cancelled when late minute postings or meeting came clashing with the outing date. Then after few years came what i usually term as the "crossroads" where one have to make choices either to hang on to that job that have given financial freedom to start the photography part time career or to venture to full time profesional photographer, whose life are very much full of drama, where project and job doesn't come on regular basis (of course the money would also not come in on regular basis) . Some of our internationally known photographer must have in between their lifes come into this crossroad and decided to take the risk and do what they love the most and succeed in their life. But there are also some who couldn't take the pressure and decided to revert back to their day to day job and put photography second to their life. Why some have succeed and why have some failed?

I guess it comes back to what you really want in life. Most of us live a life to fullfill what others or public deem as normal life like having a steady job, get a car, get a house and raise a good family and what ever goes against that belief will be deem as dumb. I know one really good singer who have wow not only me but other people with his golden angelic voice but still stuck doing 9 to 5 job eventhough he have a shot at wonderfull singing career. When i ask him why he didn't want to further his talent, his answer was simply " my family thinks its not a good career, what if i could't sell any records or fail to get any singing records? How am i suppose to feed my family? " .. That answer have always been deem as the motivation killer to any aspiring not only photographers but also to other talent as well. In return, many talent went to waste, gone just  like that.

But what happen to those who have succeded ? Did they have special charisma? Were they blessed with special powers that enable them to overcome the risk and take the challenge? Were they borned on aspecial day that have given them a super insight of the future? Were their blood thicker than us? .. The answer is NO . They are just like us, simple human being who simply love to take pictures and share it with others their natural talent. So what makes them want to take the risk, go against what people deem as wrong and venture to a life full of surprises and topsy turvy ? Well i bet their answer were " We only have one shot in this life... either we waste it or we make full use of it.. We might succeed or we might fall.. but at least when we are in our final hour, we can look at our grandchildrens and say we have live life to the fullest...."        

Learn as if we were to live forever,
Live as if we were to die tommorow ..
