Take my hand, take my everything

My second go at these animations! Do you like what you see? This time it’s from a quick shoot with Joanne! She flew all the way from Hong Kong and it was great meeting and collaborating with her. It was funny because during our shoot, an old man was walking by and asked where he can Google to find her! She’s literally a show stopper haha - can’t wait till you come back to Melbourne!

Found you when your heart was broke, filled it till it overflowed

Can you believe it, only 8 days till Christmas! What’s your favourite part of the holidays? Mine is (obviously) getting the family togetpher and being able to eat everyone’s amazing food! I think last year I made beef sliders or something and so I need ideas on what to bring to the table this year! Any ideas?

Where are you traveling this holidays? Seems like almost everyone is going back to their hometowns or visiting other cities this time of year. Personally I'm not moving anywhere and I'm planning to do more photoshoot over my break. Give myself a good amount of time as well and all should be sweet.

Simulated heartache
Model: @mhdinh
One of my biggest drives at the moment is to improve my skills. I felt that in order to improve my photography, I needed to become better at related skills as well. That’s why right now I want to incorporate movement and animation into my work. There’s many people I want to learn from, and I have a long journey to go with this new path. 2019 is going to be game changing for me, I can feel it.

We cannot change anything unless we accept it
Model: @celina_______
The moment we decide to change should not be confused with the difficult process of actually changing. Sometimes we decide that we want to live better right now and make behaviours according to that thought. However if we cannot follow it up and develop long term habits to these changes, then we will not actually change on the inside. It takes time, and that's the most difficult bit. Throughout this process our mindset slowly changes what were once forced behaviours to everyday habits. In time, you will see the fruits of your labour and that's when you have actually changed as a person.

It sounds counterintuitive, but one of the best ways to improve your craft is to do another. Sometimes we can feel like we’re stagnating or boxed in with our art, and that is because we only think in the way of that discipline. I’ve been looking at how fashion designers and architectural photographers see their craft recently, and they have shown me different ways to think about concepts and ideas. Branching out to other areas has given me different perspectives and ideas on how to think about photography differently and shown me my craft in a new light.

No matter where we are, or which way the wind blows, or how heavy the snow, nothing can change where we will go.

One of the most difficult things to do in the past couple months was to allow time for only myself. I filled my calendar with events, projects, work and leisure time with others but I barely left any time for just me. The result? I’ve lost my own focus. I gave up my time to mask being productive and neglect time to nurture myself. And so now I’m picking up the pieces. I want to start the new year feeling like my best self, and so this month is dedicated to me. .

Quiet when I'm coming home and I'm on my own
Model: @denissahady
I’m not one to complain but it can get annoying when you haven’t had a good portrait shoot in weeks and the time that have scheduled to shoot, the weather isn’t right for your concept or you cannot source a model. Such a mood kill! Either way, I’m getting the ball moving again and I want to end 2018 with work that I am proud of. .

My fire was fate with you
Model: @lyds.su
Wow it’s been a HOT minute (get it?) haha. Just kidding, I’m sorry for being away from posting for so long! Needed to do some life admin and development of my photography business as a whole. There’s so many things happening, new people, new thoughts, new projects. Sometimes I can’t tell whether or not I’m taking on too much or if I can take on even more. Either way, I always keep my fire burning. .

Here's an amazing behind the scenes video of my recent Portrait Photography workshop, produced by @dimenshin of @mind_society . It was really fun sharing some of my knowledge and tips & tricks when shooting portraits, and thank you to @erica.yoshimurahill for being the guest model. It was so heartwarming to receive positive feedback from all of you! Thank you for attending, I can't wait to host more of these in the future!

Eight calls, all to you.
Model: @indig.a
So I decided to try something crafty again for this shoot to achieve that coloured reflection. I took off my glasses and put it up near the corner of the lens and twirled it around until I could see the neon reflected in my frame. I caught some other street or car lights as well and it surprisingly made the same angle as her shoulder! It’s invisible lines like these that sometimes make a shoot look more harmonious, even if it’s not obvious in the frame.

Can’t believe how far for an angel he fell, weak on the floor so he called her cell

If there’s one skill I’m really proud to have gained this year, it’s the ability to have true faith in myself. I’ve never felt so confident with my decisions and place in life, and it’s kind of surreal. I’m less sure of what I want but I have absolute trust in my own abilities that whatever I do will lead me to a path that I’m happy with. I’ve never felt it this strongly in the past few years and it’s crazy how secure I feel right now. Have you ever felt the same way?
