Asia here we come. In January, we head once again to the Far East, one of my favorite places to go, to shoot, to learn, and to meet once again some incredibly talented and gracious folks. In January, will visit Hong Kong, Jakarta, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. If last year’s stint in KL was any barometer, we should have a blast.
The whole thing is the brain child of Louis Pang, truly one of the premier wedding shooters in all of Asia and beyond. His reach and reputation are the soul of all our efforts. Also his sense of humor. He, along with his mates, concocted the promo you see below, and, well, I kind of went with the flow:-)
Anyone who knows me knows I ain’t no action star, but do enjoy a good laugh at myself. I may have to get a black belt now. At least I’ve got the yell down.
Louis has also put together a Kuala Lumpur photo conference that promises to become a staple of the photo scene over there. Called Creative Asia, it is five days of non-stop, hands-on teaching, seminars, Q&A, lectures and demos.
Great thing about the conference is that my wife Annie is teaching, so we’ll be together–Annie is a terrific teacher. I’ve seen her take folks who don’t know how to make a folder on their desktop to shooting, downloading and moving good pix inside of a week. Also teaching are some terrifically talented shooters like Michael Greenberg, Manny Librodo, Dane Sanders, Jason Magbanue, and of course, Louis Pang.
Always had good luck shooting in Asia. Done some Geographic work there, and Sports Illustrated stuff, and some stuff for the Beijing Commission prior to the Olympic Games.
