Introducing Linaa and Lyn

I have not updated my site for a while. It does not mean that I have been idle. In fact the contrary is true – I have been traveling quite a fair bit and over the past 2 weekends I was involved in 2 photoshoots. Meanwhile I am in the midst of preparing myself to […]


Happy go lucky

Life is short and I always advocate that it is better to consider a glass to be half full rather than half empty. The following shot always reminds me to be happy and never fails to put a smile on my face.

Taken at the Bali photo-safari organized by me a couple of months ago […]


Mugli, the boy from Jungle Book?


Not really. Took this in Siem Reap, Cambodia at a village near Tonle Sap.

Taken with Nikon D3 + Nikon 70-200mm/2.8 Aperture Priority @ f/3.2 1/320s ISO400.


Pak Jingga – our first shoot at my Bali photosafari


After everyone had arrived at Bali on July 19th and after lunch, we proceeded to pak Jingga’s house to start our safari. Pak Jingga was so happy to see us. And what a sport he was.

We did the shoot at his house compound. I identified a few areas there for the shoot and […]


My toys for the Bali photo-safari

I love the lighting of this photo

Cleansed in prayers


This years cleansing ritual at sunrise during Thaipusam really fascinated me. Besides the throngs of people and followers, there were many photographers too especially around those performing their rituals. 

This one is special to me. When I noticed him I could see the image I would like to capture. I maneuvered and jostled for […]
