Work Portfolio

Our good friends Thanh and Lindsay were having their 2nd baby. So they wanted some family photos with their son Harvey and use this opportunity to announce the gender to him. A beautiful way to celebrate boxing day.

I don't think Harvey was as interested in knowing it he'll be receiving a little brother or sister as his parents though.

We did the photo shoot at Khu Du Lịch Văn Thánh (Van Thanh Tourist Park) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

2015 Dec Family Photos - Harvey

I used Thanh's Canon DSLR for the shoot was I was already undergoing camera upgrades with Sony, so I didn't have my usual equipment with me.

And as usual, Canon just wasn't for me. Nevertheless, it turned out well.

Hung and Thuy have known each other for a while and it's finally time to tie the knot. They may be older than many, but as they always say, "it's never too late".

We went out for the day to shoot some engagement photos which was a lot of fun for everyone. We stayed mostly around the entrance area of Hầm Thủ Thiêm (Thu Thiem Tunnels) and opposite side of Saigon River from Ho Chi Minh City.

I used my trusty Sony a65 and 28-75mm Lens

While in Vietnam, Ashley was preparing to serve her mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Before she left, she wanted to do a small photoshoot with her Mary and family.

It was the day before Lunar New Years, thus it was a busy day and lot of fun going around Nhà Thờ Đức Bà (Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica) and the park across the street to take photos.

Ashley and Mary Photoshoot

I used my Sony A65 along with my Sony 28-75mm f/2.8 SAM Lens. One thing I wish I had was that I had a wider lens - you really can't take it for granted.

Huong's family is planning on selling their home and asked if I could help take some photos.

This is my first time ever shooting real estate, and unfortunately, I had no wide angle lenses at that time. I decided to take multiple shots and make a panorama for the wide shots.

 I used my Sony a65 with 28-75mm f/2.8 Lens for this shoot and definitely learned a valuable lesson to not be afraid to take more than necessarily needed photos.

I've always wanted to go to New Zealand - I heard it was beautiful.

Well, lucky me, Sam asked if I could take their wedding photos, in Auckland New Zealand - you can already imagine my joy.

For this wedding, Sam lent me his Canon 5D Mark III and Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II USM Lens to use alongside with my Sony A65 and Sony 28-75mm f/2.8 SAM Lens.

Samuel and Kelly-Anne Wedding Shoot

Though the Canon 5Diii was a powerful camera and took beautiful images, it only solidified my personal preference in live view and electronic viewfinders (EVF) - generally speaking, I'm a happy Sony Alpha user. Shooting in raw is certainly important also - I decided I'd work more in raw + JPG from now on.

Places we shot the wedding were photos were Hamilton Gardens, Hamilton New Zealand Temple, and at Kelly-Anne's uncle's home.
