Anselm-Rina-ROM-800x450

Friends of thirteen years, husband and wife at last. Today, Anselm & Rina held their Registry of Marriage in the presence of family, relatives and close friends.

Almost everyone said ‘finally’. To me, merely, I said to Anselm, good friend of mine of twelve years, ‘it’s time’.

Baby Zeniq

BabyZeniq800x533

This portrait of Baby Zeniq was only possible a day after he was born. He came to this world late in the evening so I couldn’t have possibly made it to the hospital for a First Day Portrait. Zeniq is eager to see the world.

Among the babies I’ve met so far, he is the most inquisitive. He’s always scanning his surrounding with his beautiful eyes when he is not sleeping. Check out his stylist hairstyle and that cute side burn too.

A.i hopes the best for every newborn and since there’s a ‘yi’ in Zeniq’s chinese name, we hope his potential artistic talents would benefit the world he is so keen to see. Bless you Zeniq.

Passion Portraiture: He’s not an expert but he likes to play the piano.

Do you have to be really good at something to like doing something?

Most likely you like something then you try to be good at it right? Not everyone can be a genius but everyone can enjoy what he/she likes. All you need to do is try. I know Royce did, and he enjoys it.

Announcement: fifteen for 50 promo!

What is fifteen for 50? In short it means you get fifteen pictures for the price of just $50. Yes, fifteen pictures for only $50! (UP: 20 for $228)

What is the catch? Well… All you have to do is catch Andy (principal artist) of A.i before 31st March 2011. It is that simple. And this offer is limited to only the first 50 customers.

Why is the closing date 31 March 2011? It is because Andy will be unavailable for the duration of April as he is required for Government Service. Furthermore, he will be relocating part of his business to Thailand after April so any projects for portraiture will cease for the time when he is not in Singapore. However, where it allows, projects based in Singapore will still continue as Andy will be back in Singapore once a month.

Why such a good offer? Although mostly, A.i has so far been photographing weddings, A.i’s direction is still to make a difference with photography. It has not been easy to push through this idea of photographing people doing the things they like. This is especially when Andessen Imagery refrain from using any form of advertising from the beginning and opting to do promotion only through word of mouth. Call Andy silly but he believes in fate. Photography in itself is spiritual in the way it reflects the subject being photographed. A friend of Andy once asked him why doesn’t he go into the profession earlier and his answer was that it just isn’t time yet. I think now is the time to push this idea through thus A.i is offering fifteen for 50.

What do you get for fifteen for 50? For $50, you get fifteen pictures, high resolution 4R in digital format. And for $50 you get a reflection of who you are to always remind yourself of what you love. This is the disclaimer. fifteen for 50 is photography about the things you love so that it tells the story of who you are as a person.

At the end of the promotion… with your permission, A.i would like to hold a photo gallery exhibition during the second half of 2011 so your photographs can further make a difference as inspiration to others.

All A.i need now is your participation. :) Do help spread the word around. Thank you so much!

Carmen.

She’s a difficult subject to photograph. She’s always saying she look terrible, or she look ugly, or she’s not photogenic… etc.

She’ll complain why I take such horrible pictures of her. She’ll ask me to delete, delete, delete them all. She’ll say that I’m the only one who would think pictures of her are nice.

She’s my worst client. She’s my dear sister. She’s Carmen.

This would be my last image post for the year ending 2010. Carmen played a huge role in my photography. Thank you.

Ending note: If you think photography is all about capturing moments, think again. Photography is about the relationship between the photographer and the subject. I’ll leave you to think about that.
