Besides doing event, corporate and wedding photography, I am also very passionate about taking photographs for charitable causes, an issue which is close to my heart.
I was invited by eHomemakers last year to photograph women from Salaam Wanita an organisation which empowers and helps disadvantaged women by teaching them to weave handcrafted baskets from recycled magazines.
The photos were shot in Ipoh, a state located north of Malaysia where I met up with 3 families to capture their daily routines. These women who lead a meagre life are able to improve their lifestyle and self-worth by selling the baskets.
My photographs were submitted together with a paper written by eHomemakers to UNDP in Sri Lanka and this particular photo won the 3rd prize.
