It’s not often that we get permission to do ballet photoshoots indoors, but whenever it happens, we know that we would be in for a treat! During a whirlwind 2 day trip to Paris last year, we managed to gain access to the spectacular Salle Labrouste reading room located at the Bibliothèque de l’INHA. Designed by the renowned architect Henri Labrouste in the late 19th century, this structure showcases his innovative use of iron, an industrial material that exhibits both potential for elegance and functionality.… continue reading
Last December, while on family vacation in Perth, I had the opportunity to collaborate with May Yen, a really talented and beautiful dancer who grew up there but now lives in Singapore and dances for the Singapore Dance Theatre. It was my first dance photo shoot in Australia and also our first time collaborating so how cool was it to be able to create pictures in her hometown.… continue reading
I swear the weather has something against me. Half of my shoots are done in either overcast conditions or even outright rain. And whenever I don’t have shoots, I would look out my window and see the most beautiful sunset ever! Nonetheless, with “summer” approaching in Singapore and how many of my friends have been flooding my Facebook timeline with amazing sunset pictures lately, I thought what could go wrong given the recent run of fine weather we’ve been having.… continue reading

Our recent trip to Japan was a great success despite a few blips like unexpected snow, accidentally taking an express train to the wrong city en route to a shoot, and getting scolded by a yakuza-like yakitori stall assistant. Fun times!
Nonetheless, our whirlwind 4-day trip saw us collaborate with amazing ballerinas Ayano Kimura of the Washington Ballet (US), Sayaka Wakita of the Astana Ballet (Kazakhstan), Ami Naito of the State Opera Varna (Bulgaria) who were all back in Japan for the year end holidays, popular local contemporary dancer and model Kozue Kawabe, and finally Thomas Bloch (who was visiting Japan for the very first time!) in the cities of Kyoto and Osaka.… continue reading

Japan remains one of our favourite photography destinations thanks to its great urban landscapes whose architecture blends both modern and traditional elements so effortlessly. Not only that, it’s a country that’s also blessed with great weather and even greater cuisine, always a big plus to balance the exertions experienced during long days of shooting.
Thus, to end 2016, it’s only fitting that we return to this amazing country.… continue reading
