Today (20 October 2009) wasn’t any other day for me. I was selected by Canon Malaysia as one of the first nine to be initiated into the Canon EOS Hall of Fame.
Canon’s EOS Hall of Fame is a new exclusive and elite circle for established photographers who are masters of their craft and who have been users of Canon equipment. The photographers initiated into this circle are active in the media and are drawn from different facets of photography.
I am deeply honored that Canon, a household name for photography equipment and the leading equipment provider to professional photographers have chosen me to be part of the first nine.
It was both humbling as well as exciting to be sharing the stage today together with such names as Allan Chai, renowned commercial photographer; Ng Kok Leong, veteran photographer and photo editor of the largest English newspaper in Malaysia, The Star; Yau Choon Hiam, veteran photojournalist with the leading Chinese daily, Nanyang Siang Pau; Zung, from The Photoz, one of the leading wedding photographers in Malaysia… as well as many others.
Sometimes, in one’s career, you reach a milestone and today, I have reached one of my own and would strive to be better so that I may reach another soon.
