Here are some casual and lifestyle portrait photos of Philip, Linda and their family taken in a park in KL. This two hour photo session was well spent capturing a combination of individual shots and family portraits. Both boys, Sebastian and Shayne were just full of energy and came with their favourite sports gear and toys. Enjoy!

I recently photographed Glocomp‘s Golf Invitational at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club in Subang on 19th November 2009. This is my second Golf photo shoot that I’ve photographed this year and I had an amazing time at the Golf course! My earlier shoot can be seen here. The more I get to learn about golfing, the more I am liking the game! This is one of the perks of being a photographer as I get to go to new places and shoot different subjects all the time.
We were lucky as it didn’t rain on the day…God must have heard my prayers! Here are some of the shots taken during the day,the game started off with about 116 golfers who were in 29 flights. Glenmarie comprises two full 18-hole courses. The 18 hole event consisted of a selection from both courses. Half the group tee-ed off from the front 9 while the rest from the back 9. The day started in the afternoon where the golfers were feasted to a lovely lunch before the group shot and tee off ceremony and ended with the slide show presentation of photos taken of the day, lucky raw prizes and prize presentation.
A big thank you to the team from Glocomp, especially Yen who did an amazing job organising this event.

Besides weddings, portraits and parties, I also photograph corporate events for various organisations.
I was invited to photograph Pharmaniaga‘s Invitational Golf Tournament last Sunday (2 August 2009) at Tropicana Golf & Country Resort. The registration started at 6:30am followed by breakfast, a short briefing to participants, group photo, tee-off, prize giving and lunch. The event ended approximately at 3.30pm.
Most of the invited golfers were from the medical line such as Professors, Doctors, Pharmacists and representative from the Malaysian Health Ministry.
This was my first ever golf shoot and I was thrilled to have been exposed to it. I’ve learnt a little more about golf… to me it seems like a game of strategy, patience and small talk. It can be either a very enjoyable game or a boring one, depending on the type of person you are. I found it most interesting as it was something new to me.
A huge shout out goes to Cik Mas & Mr Manen from Tropicana who helped me throughout the day and a big thank you to Pharmaniaga as well for giving me the opportunity to shoot the event. I enjoyed the experience immensely.
Tips to photographers planning to photograph a golf tournament:
- Its good to remember a few golfing terms or lingo so as not to be ‘blur’ on the day – Click me
- Never stand in front of the golfer for safety reasons and do not distract the golfer when he/she is about to tee-off. Try to take your shots during practise swings or after the golf ball has been hit.
- Bring along an umbrella, suntan lotion and a cap to weather all types of weather. Wear loose, comfortable clothes and a good pair of walking shoes. Keep a bottle of water close by as it may be a swelteringly hot day!
- It helps to be a morning person, as you have to be up early. Try to shoot with at least 2 photographers especially if its an 18-hole golf course.
- Its best to recce the golf course earlier and arrange for a buggy in advance. Try to ride with the golf marshal or golf official if possible.
