Siem Reap, here I come!

One more day and I will be off to Siem Reap, Cambodia on my (very likely) last teaching photo-safari for the year. Having organised and taught in 2 previous photo-safaris this year (Myanmar – March and Bali – June), I think it is time I start something different to keep my interest going. You see, […]


Will I do pre-wedding photography?

Someone once asked me this very question and I gave a very non-committal answer. I now know deep down inside me I will take up that challenge one day. Yes, one fine day….

During the Bali photo-safari recently, I met multi-award wedding photographer Keda Z. Feng at one of my frequent haunts in Bali. With […]


Portraits from Inle Lake, Myanmar

Now with most of my 'pressing' work done, I can now go back to what I like to do — share more shots from my collection which includes those from Myanmar & Bali photo-safari, and those from my workshops.

Before that, some interesting news. For those who have registered as Free members and those who […]


“Go Back In Time” Siem Reap Photo-safari August 16th-20th, 2011

I have decided to go back to my first love for photo-safaris i.e. to Siem Reap and the historical Angkor Wat complex. The last time I was there was in November 2008 where I spent some great photography time with a group of photographers from Singapore, Indonesia Vietnam and my home country, Malaysia. That annual […]


Pak Gulem at work

Pak Gulem is a friend of Pak Sara's. They are both from the village of Bedulu, Bali. You have seen a shot of Pak Sara. Here is a shot of Pak Gulem at work taken with the Nikon 24mm/1.4 @ f/1.4 1/640s ISO 200.




Here is another shot I took of the dancers at the Klungkung waterfall. We have seen many subjects taken at this waterfall including pre-wedding shots (in fact I have one of these too – more of that later) but there are very few of Balinese dancers let along of them being splashed with water.


The fighting shadows

We had the opportunity to witness (and of course, to photograph too) a cock-fighting demonstration at Bedulu village, Bali. Even though it was a tame version of the banned cock-fighting of Bali, it was still an unforgettable experience to those who were witnessing it for the first time. The cockerels were not harmed during this […]


Pak Sara of Bedulu village, Bali

I met Pak Sara during one of my previous Bali photo-safaris. I made an appointment to meet him (and Pak Gulem – more of him later) again at his village because he is really friendly and has no problems posing for us. We were rewarded with some keepers from them. This is one of him […]


I am back!

What a Bali photo-safari! It was great fun as expected. It was action from the word go. From what I saw from the sample shots taken by the participants I know I will be seeing some great shots from them soon. Personally I think I have some great shots too. I won't be doing much […]
