The new editions of my eBooks are finally here!

Yes, finally, after many delays due to unforeseen circumstances. Making the decisions to add what needs to be added was tough. I eventually made the decision to give free updates instead. As it is, there are some refinement in my workflow, some new chapters including post-processing of environmental portraits & textures, a […]


New editions to my ebooks soon!

The time has come for me to replace my ebooks on portraiture post-processing with new editions after 3 successful years. I have recently started updating the ebooks with new techniques, new photos and even some new chapters. This time I will be illustrating my post-processing workflow with Photoshop CS5. If everything goes as planned these […]


A few more days to Myanmar!

Yes, a few more days to my Myanmar photosafari – specifically on March 12th.

Nice people, nice food, plenty of shooting opportunities and with the cool climate now, an amazing […]

We must have met one of the friendliest group of villagers whose houses will sadly be demolished in the not too distant future to make way for development. Despite us disturbing their daily routine, we were served cold drinks […]


Kuantan post-processing workshop Sept 18th,2010

What a blast we had at the Kuantan workshop!

The weather was a total contrast from the previous rainy day. The sun smiled on us and it was reflected on those who participated. What an enthusiatic bunch the participants were, some coming from as far as Singapore and Johore. If I am to give marks […]


When Banhup meets Kenvin Pinardy

I have always wanted to meet and learn from Kenvin Pinardy. Last weekend was a dream come true and this collection is a culmination of a weekend's workshop with Kenvin…a combination of Kenvin's post-processing technique with mine. Hope you like it. 😉
