Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

June 7, 2014

It's been a few weeks since I came back from Australia but I have yet to sort out all the photos I've taken (which is not very surprising...) I was thinking if I should blog about it day by day or place by place. And I guess it'll be less messy to post one place by another rather than day by day since we might have visited a few places in a day.

On the third day in Gold Coast, we decided to head down to Brisbane to visit Lone Pine - the world's first and largest koala sanctuary. They don't only have koalas actually, there are also kangaroos and other Australian wildlife. In a moment you'll see why it's such a lovely place to be. Kangaroo is hands down my favourite of all! They aren't locked in cages, so if you want to you could approach them and hand feed them. Koalas are adorable too, but they're so lazy they basically only eat & sleep. We're lucky enough to spot the baby koala sleeping in its mom's arms when we were there. Too adorable!

This post would probably summarize 50% of the images I've created the past few months. Last October I received an email from the owner of Fashmob - Rachel, asking for my photography rate, and here after half a year I've been shooting for them for about 20 launches! Time really does fly. I often tried not to post too many photos that I shot for online stores because it wasn't what I wanted myself to be known for. Moreover, the one behind the camera shouldn't be the one who steals the spotlight, right? You should just be quietly creating beautiful images to aid the business. But I am certainly thankful for the opportunity, and it has to be one of the things that I'm most grateful of - to have met these people. We explore different places together, do silly things just to get into the location (and then getting chased out...), encounter funny incidents like having monkeys surrounding us... Slowly we become friends, and during one's birthday we would go out for nice dinner together.  
It took me a while to pick the images because there're just so many photos, and they might look messy together since they're all from different days and locations. But I'll try.

If you like their clothes, head over to their website and have a look. I've shot them so I know that the quality of the fabrics are usually quite good. 3 years ago I came to Singapore just to study, so I only had friends from my school, maybe that's why I'm always happy whenever I get to know people outside of my school, to know how other schools are like in the same land. And sometimes classmates can get competitive and it becomes complicated, friends outside can just be friends. 
In less than a month I will be traveling to Italy for a month, which means I probably would have to miss out some of their launches, but I believe a vacation or break from photography will often make you see things from a different perspective again when you're back.
