I've been dreading to do a photo shoot for my own car. If you have followed me on social media or this blog. I've been shooting other people ride for a while now. With other peoples car, I can see all the personal touches or interesting things done to their cars and I try to translate it to imagery. But when it came to shooting my own car, I really didn't know where to start. It is something I see every day and all I see are the imperfections, the things to be fixed. The misaligned lights, the scratches, the cracks, the rust and how everything looked so awkward in at the back of my camera. So most of the shots here will have no close ups :PRead More

This yellow beauty is my friend, Firdaus's pride and joy. He is the third owner for this 1975 classic the Toyota Celica TA22 ST. I was keeping this car for a good place to shoot, finally I found one. A unused warehouse. Which I borrowed from the owners for one day for shooting this special car.
Its special in that its almost nearly stock from factory. With original paint from 1975. So he says, and so the previous owner says. :)Read More
Few weeks ago I had the opportunity to drive up to Genting Highlands in an awesome classic Datsun. Thanks to a Kean Yap who hooked me up with this awesome ride. It was such a coincidence that during this my trip the BwB guys were organising an event to convoy up to Genting Highlands, and interestingly had an extra car which I drove up in.
Initially I wanted to follow up, so I can take some photos and maybe some videos along the way up. But I was driving, which was even more awesome.Read More
Last month my friend asked me if I wanted to test out his new rig. Of course I would not give it a pass. There are many areas to improve upon. But I think its quite effective.
For those who know about automotive photography, you will know how these shots were created. But for those who dont know much about photography, you may not figure it out. Read More
I was trying to duplicate a shot that I saw in an online gallery. Obviously its far from what I want but it is a start.
It was kinda hard trying to shoot this myself. I knew that my gears were not enough. I need more light modifiers. And probably and assitant or two. I was running up and down taking test shots and moving the lights about. Its definately a start.
I do have some other ideas on how to achieve the shot that I want. Well I think I do. Hopefully soon I will be able to make it happen :) To achieve the above shot I used 3 flash units. I think I need a few more! Can u spot the locations of the 3rd flash unit???
Oh and I was shooting from the roof of my house.
