  • Ryan Kong – An Accidental Photographer

    A Banker by profession, a Photographer by chance. This is how best to describe myself, when I was introduced to the world of photography, and by chance. To cut the story short, I was introduced to my first DSLR, a Nikon, and it comes in the form of the semi-pro D90, by my work colleagues, who themselves are keen photographers. One thing led to another, the next thing I knew, I bought a "pro" body, full frame D700. And the adventure just started rolling on and on....

    This is my sharing of what I see from the viewfinder, and what I do to ensure those who "hired" me, happy. A mixture of both personal work and professional work. You are welcome to leave your thoughts (good n bad ones) & share your views. LIKE it if you really do. Stay tune..

Travelogue : Amsterdam

Hi folks. I have been travelling for the for the past 2 weeks, around 3 cities in Europe.  And one of the cities is Amsterdam in Holland.  To me, all European cities have one thing in common; that is their beautiful historical buildings.  Here, I would like to share some pictures that I documented on Amsterdam, and the also a little bit on Volendam, which is famous for it’s cheese making.  Volendam is located at the northern side of Holland, a beautiful place.  Hope you enjoy the pictures that I documented.

Wedding Snippets – Flower Thrower

After browsing through all the files, I realised that I have these really fun pictures when the bride performed the “flower throwing” event.  I saw the excitement from the bride’s expression and I also saw the anticipation and happiness from all the brides maids.   These pictures depicted the thorough happiness and fun moments of this lovely wedding.  More to come.  In the meantime, hope you like these captures.

Congratulations to Qisti & Liyana !

 

Wedding Snippets – Father & Daughter

It was a hot Saturday afternoon and I was on a wedding assignment in Kuala Lumpur.  The host has arranged a few of those big “industrial like” fan to cool things down in the porch to make his guests comfortable.  I was taking a rest near one of those fan, when I saw this young father was playing with her little daughter near of the fans.  I saw an genuine smile of love and contentment of the father towards her little girl.  I took camera, and luckily, I didn’t miss that moment.  Here is the pix I want to share.

 

Sweet Moments

For a woman, the sweetest moment occurs when her groom take her hand and ask her to be his wife, on her wedding day. For a wedding photographer, these are the moments that we always look for.  To capture the happy bride, anxiously waiting for her man to take her hand, these moments are priceless.

I managed to capture that moments in my recent wedding assignment, and I wanted to share the beautiful expression of the bride, happily and anxiously waiting for her groom to take her hand.  These are priceless, and these are the little things that keep me going as a wedding photographer.

Charming Anita – A Portraiture morning with Anita

I was having a cuppa with my buddy in one of those normal hangout session, when my buddy (aka Relucent Photography) invited me to join him for a portraiture session on that weekend.  A bit of introduction of this buddy of mine; he is the same person who introduced me to the creative world of photography, my “sifu”, a good friend, and now, a colleague !  We worked for the same bank in Malaysia.

Anyway, back to the main “story”, the location for the shoot was at the beautiful KLCC park (similar to Central Park in New York, but to a much smaller scale).

The first time I saw Anita, I thought she has really sharp feature ; deep sets of eyes, well balance brows, and a sweet smile.  The camera would love her !  She has her long hair flowing through her shoulders, which creates a very sensual side to her.  Thinking to myself, I am in for a potentially great portraiture session with a very good subject.

I was 2nd photographer on that day, and being the “supporting cast”,  I managed to capture some very candid moments of Anita.  My real learnings from shooting as the 2nd man is to understand a totally different perspective of doing a portrait session.  Hope you enjoy the pix !

Happy New Year 2013 guys !! Cheers !
