When asked to do family photos I usually advise to do the shoot while they are having some good family time together instead of ‘forcing’ the children to smile in a studio when they are usually quite impatient. A 1 hour shoot in the playground, pool and their living room ended up with 24 good photos.. here are 5 of my favourites. The boy was rather grumpy most of the time but with the parents and maid (oh the maid was hilarious) helping to tease the boy, he gave a few laughs which I managed to capture.
The LiveStudios team covered Nathaniel’s 7th Birthday at the Raffles Town Club last year with a Star Wars theme. This year, they held it at the Shangri-La Tower Ballroom with a SuperHeroes theme.
Did a shoot for a yacht for the brochure for Lifestyle Adventures Asia for their chartered yacht, Hidden Treasure II. It can hold up to 16 people and it’s a great way to spend a day out at sea. Check out their website http://www.lifestyleadventuresasia.com/ for more info.
Where magazine commissioned us to do a cover shoot for the opening ceremony of the Singapore Flyer. It was tedious to get to our locations but it was well worth the effort.
Daniel & Jaime were hosting the Style Weddings Glamour Bash at the Raffles Ballroom for the whole day before they had their own wedding in the evening.
The wedding gown is by Ted Wu (http://www.ted-wu.com) and it converts into 3 different looks as the night goes on.
They decided to be emcees for their own wedding too.. as they said, the best emcees in town were all guests at the dinner and they wanted to let them enjoy the evening.
Many familiar faces turned up including deejays, singers, actors/actresses and fashion choreographer, Daniel Boey, who was also doing the runway choreography for the Style Weddings bridal fashion show just hours ago.
Photos were projected onto the screen live and we incorporated our new LiveSMS mechanism for the first time. Guests could send in their well-wishes via SMS and the messages will appear on a scrolling bar at the bottom of the screen.
Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, we realise too that the text was too small to see at the back of the ballroom.
Guests were pleased with a lot of their candid as well as posed shots in photocards which were handed to them personally by our staff.
Those who have been following our blogs probably know I’m a sucker for touching wedding speeches.. This one has gone completely off the scale!! The couple spared no effort in planning for the wedding. They scripted a wedding video clip based on ‘the amazing race’. Here they are peeping at the video before doing the march-in.
The video was really entertaining and the videographer did a great job in capturing the actual day footages to fit into the script. Their march in was really fun as well, they got the whole crowd cheering and did a little dance right in the middle
They suggested the idea of printing the photos of neo-print stickers so that the guests could sign beside their stickers in the guestbook.
Their wedding invite also had some space for ‘people we’ve met at the wedding’ and they pasted the neo-print on each others invites.
It’s been a hectic few weeks and haven’t been able to update the blogs with our shooting and traveling schedules. Just came back from LA/Las Vegas and didn’t have a chance to spend a night in Singapore before having to fly to Sydney for a wedding. Tiring, but the trip was well worth it. I had such a great time shooting Andrea & David that I didn’t feel the fatigue or hunger till the day after.
The hotel we were staying in is the Sebel @ Pier One, just under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. You couldn’t ask for a better location. Sydney is also one of the more picturesque cities for photography and not too far away from Singapore.
Being at the pier, they decided to do the makeup just outside their suite right at the pier, you could see the reflections of pier 2 in the sliding door.
The whole atmosphere was full of laughter right from the start. Just for the preparation alone, I took almost 900 shots… I usually have time to filter and remove the duplicate shots but everyone was so energised that I couldn’t stop shooting.
One of the nephews of the couple, Matthew was looking at the bride doing the makeup through the glass, I went up and captured him smiling.
The groom surprised the bride with 2 rolls royce to fetch her to the chinese gardens.
The convertible gave us some fun photoshoot opportunities.
The bridal party had lots of fun participating in the shoot as well.
Our senior photographer, Mike was covering the launch of the Audi A4 at the Singapore Fashion Festival. I decided to drop by to say hi to some familiar faces and take a look at the new A4.
I was late for the fashion show but from the photos, Pois Boutique seemed to have displayed some really interesting pieces from their collection.
The headlights of the A4 had the same design as the R8.. very elegant.
Many posed with the models and the cars and received their instant photocards with the Pois & Audi Logo.
Many took turns to have a first hand feel inside the Audi A4..
And of course some of my friends who I always get to meet at the events
I flew from Los Angeles to Las Vegas was joined by my LiveStudios team to cover the massive convention for AIA Hong Kong. This was held at the famous Venetian Las Vegas.
The Palazzo is the Venetian’s brand new sister property and together with 700+ rooms, they are the largest hotel in room capacity. It’s situated right on the main strip (it’s the 2 buildings in the background, left yellow-lighted one is the Palazzo and the one on the right of it is the Venetian)
The rooms are all suites and are fabulous
Our day trip was to the Grand Canyon and on they way, we passed by Hoover Dam, where a lot of movies have been filmed, including X-Men & Transformers.
Some took the helicopter rides for a breathtaking aerial view of the canyon.
While the bus ride there took about 3 hrs, the ride there was well worth it. The view is spectacular and most took out their cameras happily clicking away while others took some quiet time for some inspirations.
