Dave Koh Photography

Dave, a professional photographer, whom I had the honour and time to work with him on various projects in the past 2 years. He’s also skilled in videography and post photography editing too !

I used to support Dave in his projects as a back-up photographer and when he recently decided to revamp and rebrand his site, I waited eagerly for his new site to be up and indeed, it was something different and unique. Being a fellow photographer and helper, I would take this opportunity to showcase my support and give him the heads up in marketing and publicity.

Dave has a more artistic style of photography compared to my photojournalistic and events style photography. Do drop by into his website and take a look at his portfolio, even though we have 2 different photography styles, to create a unique photo album, it takes 2 different styles of photography to bring out the wonderful and beautiful memories and photos captured for the loving couple.

Congratulations, Dave ! All the best !

My 1st Official Actual Day Wedding Photographer

Having entered into photography using my Dad’s Pentax manual SLR and Nikon SLR F401X film days in my early years and teens, it had been many years of photography journey. However, it was only in the past 3 years, when my Dad bought Canon EOS 300D, it got me back into serious photography again.

Over the past 3 years, my photography experiences improved by leaps and bounds, experimenting into new fields of photography. My passion for photography, travel and writing are the key factors in the creation of my photojournalism blog. I also had undertaken various assignments e.g. functions, events, portraits, ROM Ceremony, Wedding Dinners and finally my first official assignment as the Actual Day Wedding Photographer.

I would like to thank Wen Liang and Portia, for giving me the opportunity to be their Actual Day Wedding Photographer, their belief and trust in my photography skills and experience were a great testimonial to my exponential photography advancements. I would also like to thank Dave Koh of Espoir Bridal whom I have worked with in a number of assignments recently.

Folks, for my maiden 200th blog posting, I would like to present some of my works from my recent photography assignment as the Actual Day Wedding Photographer……

It was a great day of fun, enjoyable and learning photography experience for me ! A memorable and unforgetable maiden experience as an Actual Day Wedding Photographer…… Priceless …… Still have to learn though ……..

With this 200th posting, I would like to sincerely say THANK YOU ! to all my readers, who have been following my photojournalism blog all this while. Your support is greatly appreciated !

Couple Kitchen Theme Photoshoot with Espoir Bridal

Sometime last year in December 2007, on the 22nd, I was asked by Dave Koh of Espoir Bridal to be involved in another photoshoot with the lovely couple that I helped out during the 3 photographers pre-wedding shoot project.

I was honoured to be helping out again and another opportunity to put my photography skills to the test again. On that day, we went to another beautiful home in the East of Singapore, a nice kitchen. Once at the location and chatting with the lovely owner, we began to set up the lights and props for the kitchen theme photoshoot.

We began with the kitchen equipment and layout, placing bowls, ingredients, sauces, cooking utensils and lights, while the couple started to dress up in their chef attire. While they were preparing their attire, we were also discussing on what we planned to go about with this photoshoot. In no time, we were ready to go “ACTION !!!” and began “Fire Away” with our DSLRs.

There were many different photo shots, using many different lenses to capture many different styles and images, some action and some portraits. This gave me a very interesting and great learning experience and perspective on how to go about doing an outdoor shoot.

We went to change from different scenes in the kitchen, from chopping onions, garlic, chilli, tomato, lime and carrot to garnishing a cooked orange crab. The finale before lunch was introducing the crab with garnishing on a plate to the little girl of the house and she was really pretty, sporty, jovial, cute and lovely, giving this photoshoot a memorable experience for all involved.

Soon, it was time for me to call it a day because I had to rush off to meet my overseas friend. For them, they continued with second phase……
