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
Yikes! Its been a month since I last posted a journal! Been busy with... stuff, so whats new right ? Anyways to continue with the launching of the Toyota 86.
So we arrived at Sepang before the sun was awake. I think it was probably around 5.30am. By 6am the cars were parked and by 7am everything was ready for the customers.Read More
I was fortunate to have friends whose working in the industry and I got the opportunity to go to Sepang Circuit and also witness (document) the behind the scenes of the launch. These photos are taken before the cars were fully detailed.
I guess its another plus to have the cars to shoot without so many other media present, which I will show in the next posting on the following days event.
