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. 

2 Love notes:

  1. wow!!! the photos are really nice! and yes i completely agree with you about the fact that the person behind the camera receiving all the spotlight and it should just be about creating beautiful pictures!
    and can i just ask one question?? which lens do you prefer for shoots like this???
    and a have a fun and safe journey to italy :)

    1. I like to use prime lenses cuz of the shallow depth of field (so the background blurs and the object stands out!) so i always go for my 50mm f1.4 nowadays, on my full-frame camera it is just right but it could be a little narrow for cropped-frame dslr. hope that helps! :)
