Avillion Port Dickson stands for the calming wonders of water. It is a place that brings forth an invitation to reawaken the senses as it endlessly draws the splendor of the sea…
…it was really a location I have been dreaming about to do a photoshoot and as such, as soon as I got the confirmation for an editorial shoot for a leading Bridal Magazine in Malaysia, Bridal Guide, I really nearly fell off my chair.
The assignment this time was to shoot 8-10 bridal gowns and with a elegant and classy look. Due to some unforseen circumstance, we had to work twice as fast as normal as we had only 3hrs plus before sundown to complete the shoot.

The gowns were designed by Allan Ow, a bridal gown designer that I work with closely.
Really don’t know how to describe his style beyond saying that his designs are different, beautiful and contemporary.
Couple of days ago, took my portable backdrop and headed over to get some “corporate portraits” done; wasn’t really expecting having to shoot a myriad of Yoga poses but I somehow managed.”How do they do that?”, “Doesn’t it hurt?” or “Do they have bones at all?” were the questions that were constantly on my mind. It is quite amazing how flexible (and inflexible, in my case) the human body can be with a bit of training. Continue reading →
