  • 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..

An ALOHA party – Annika turns 5 !

It is nice to be kids. I always wanted to turn back the clock, and go back to times where I was little…no workplace issues, no money issues etc.  I just focus on having fun fun fun all the time.  And birthdays…. the only birthday party that I have when I was young was the one I saw on photos, which was when I turned 1 ! Back then having birthday parties were simple.

I was attending Annika’s birthday party 2 weeks ago, by the pool side of a popular hotel in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. She just turned 5.  I was, of course, was there being the photographer for the event.  Annika was a sweet girl.  His elder brother Annish, has that suave look.  I can almost imagine how they would grow up to be next time.  Annika will definitely be a heart-stealer.

Back to the party, the organiser did a splendid job of transforming the hotel outdoor pool into an hawaiian theme party.  I am sure the guests enjoyed themselves that day, especially the kids.  Food was great, music was appropriate, there were laughter every where, and most importantly, there were more than enough games and activities for the kids to do.

I hope I can have similar parties for my own little girl & little boy in the future.  Hope you like the photos.

 

 

 

Me in action ?

Whenever somebody posted comments to ask how do I look like in real person, my replies to them is just that I would post a personal portrait of myself soon.  Well, after running through my portfolios, I struggled to find a single most appropriate photo of myself ! No photographers would do a self-portrait, other than letting others do it for them.

But FINALLY, I found some !

At a recent wedding assignment, our second photographer, Mr. Elfrem Chan, has kindly took some candid shots of me in action.  And yeah, it is not “full frontal”, but I guessed these pix are good enough to give everyone some idea of what I look in person.

Cheers !

Wedding Day : Tears of Joy

The most touching moments of a wedding day is to see parents shed tears of joy to see their beloved “little girl” finally found the love of her life.  It is not wrong to say that they have a sense of loss, to see their daughters no longer with them as often as they like to, but, also they are genuinely happy to see them move to a new phase in their life, and be a parent themselves. I captured these touching moments during a wedding day ceremony recently and felt touched with what I see.  Would I have the same feeling, when my little gal grew up and get married in the near future ? I think I would.

Wedding Day : Edward & Sammi

I have known Edward & Sammi for a few good years now.  Actually I know Edward first, as he was my brother’s best buddies since their primary school days. And Sammi, was also from the same school as Edward’s.  I have no clue that they were an item, until the day where they decided to tie the knot ! Edward is a jovial person, and Sammi is a happy-go-lucky gal who enjoys a good laugh.  They wanted me to cover their wedding day, and they wanted a non-posing photos, which is fine by me as I enjoyed photojournalism style for all my wedding assignments.  The very day started very early, at 6am morning, and last all the way till 1am the new morning.

I had a fun time covering the wedding day, meeting and chatting with their “crazy’ friends, who, sportingly went through the “tough” routine to help Edward to “pick up” Sammi.  This is a very traditional Chinese style wedding day.  Here are some of the moments of the wedding day to share.  I absolutely enjoyed myself throughout.

 

Caitlyn Turned 2.

It was a lovely Saturday morning. Venue : A public park in a suburbs of Kuala Lumpur.  The star : A cute little girl by the name of Caitlyn, who just turned 2.  It was a picnic and party, all in one.  Children everywhere, playing and enjoying their picnic and games.  I had a fun time playing with the kids (while on a job).  Happy Birthday Caitlyn !
