愛上飯香

人的感官被視覺主導,在五光十色的都市,我們很容易沉醉在絢麗的色彩中。

對我而言,攝影捕捉的瞬間可以將我從炫目的顏色中抽離出來,靜靜觀賞我們所忽略的生活,所以我覺得相片記錄的畫面不單止能滿足視覺的感受,更可以宣洩情感,讓人體會內在的靈魂。

讓大家能夠從我的相片中獲得多重感受,就是我工作中挑戰的地方。

氣味就是相片中較難表達的一環。

想跟大家分享,我很高興能獲邀出席diptyque在ifc的新店開幕。

我在四五年前開始接觸diptyque這個巴黎香氛品牌,不同於其他香水品牌的girly感覺,diptyque獨立鮮明的形像及氣味立即就將我吸引!

我很喜歡她的香薰蠟燭氣味和藝術品般的玻璃杯包裝,感覺型格又夢幻,配搭各種由畫面表達的情境味道,絶對能滿足我對視覺和氣味的追求。

新店的內部裝潢也很能夠表達diptyque一貫的藝術風格,櫥窗後有一座冰柱般的蠟燭雕塑,彷彿將氣味封印在內,令人感受到冷熱糾纏的視覺效果。

配合新店推出的Hong Kong Candle也沒令我失望,混合了洋紫荊的香氣加上飯香的本土味道,有種獨特的香港情懷。

原來閉起眼晴也能夠看見美麗的香港。

眼晴以外的世界同樣精彩繽紛,我們不妨合上眼,用其他感官感受生活。😊

Boudoir photography

Boudoir shoots are a line of photography most recently introduced by Johnny Productions. This style, meant to be given as a gift from brides to grooms, lies in the genre of romance and lust/sensuality. Taken in the photographer’s studio or a luxury suite, the bride poses for intimate portraits/candids, making a bold, personal statement about their sexuality, and evoking absolute passion, temptation, and love.

Led by our principal photographer, Susan, this implicit intimacy captures sexuality at its finest. For more information, visit http://www.suzanng.com/.

#MeToo

Time Magazine’s Person Of The Year was announced this last week, with ‘The Silence Breakers’ as the winners. The #MeToo movement has swept across the world and fundamentally changed the way society thinks about abuse and trauma, especially those acts committed by people of power.

Last week, Susan opened her first photography exhibition on the subject of sexual abuse – the first ever of its kind in Asia.

Prior to the #MeToo movement, this project had already been up and running for about a year. We’re very proud to say that we have been able to do our part with helping to highlight the issues here in Hong Kong. Many media outlets here in Hong Kong reported on the exhibition and we hope that this will open up a forum to speak on a subject that has been difficult to talk about before, and to shine a light for victims of abuse to help them rehabilitate.

Amanda S x Caffe Habitu.

We love cake.  We love Amanda S. So when Caffe Habitu invited us to shoot cakes specially designed and made by Amanda S, it was what they call a ‘no-brainer’!

An established brand in Hong Kong, Caffe Habitu has worked with the lovely Amanda S to produce four exclusive designs for their cake menu this Christmas and Johnny Productions had the privilege of being the photographer for their promotional material.

The shoot was fun, the cakes delicious (Amanda S’ own recipe) and we had an awesome experience working with the very professional Amanda S.  Look out for the advertisements this Christmas and make sure you indulge in some cake!

風雨蘭 x Susan — 亞洲首個響應「國際終止女性受暴日」攝影展(International Day for the Eradication of Violence Against Women)

謝謝風雨蘭的邀請,我才有機會參與這麼有意義的活動。

其實我不是一個很會講話的人,因為我覺得很多事情不能夠用言語去表達,所以我選擇用照片去跟別人溝通。就好像這次的拍攝對像,我從她們身上感受到一份美麗,或者應該說是對人生的一份追求。無論過去發生過甚麼事情,他們仍然可以用正面和樂觀的態度去面對。

我過往拍過很多女性,她們都會刻意去打扮、穿不同的衣服、配戴不同的首飾,她們全都希望能在鏡頭面前展示最美一面。但這一次,没有華麗的衣服、没有名貴的首飾、更加没有人工的化妝或者後期的修圖,但我覺得他們每一個都很美麗。她們的美是發自內心的。

老實說。要接受這次的拍攝並不容易。他們對我們的信任令人感動,而且在拍攝的過程中,他們每一位都展現出一個又一個自信的笑容。

我相信風雨蘭的每一位同事在拍攝當中下了很多功夫,我要謝謝你們。而更重要的是,因為風雨蘭的精神和理念,令每一位朋友可以再次站起來,再次展現美麗和自信的自己。香港實在非常需要一個這麼有意義和重要的志願團體。今天的作品不是單靠我個人去創作,而是由每位主人一同去建立。希望大眾在欣賞每幅作品的時候,能夠給他們更好的鼓勵,也希望風雨蘭能夠繼續努力下去。

Family Portraits of Four!

Mid-Autumn festival— an annual festival in Hong Kong, celebrated when the moon is the biggest and fullest. In Chinese culture, the full moon symbolizes not just prosperity and happiness, but also the element of family reunion!

Calvin and Sisi are proud parents of their baby son, as well as being proud owners of their mongrel. Why? Aside from being astonishingly playful and obedient, the mutt has been by their child’s side ever since he was a tiny infant. Their relationship is truly one of a kind, you will never see one of them without the other.

During a recent photoshoot with the family of four, we were able to witness the joy and glee surrounding the family— coos of laughter came from the young boy as the hound played with him, an incredibly delightful and charming sight, awarding us with wonderfully appealing pictures, truly showcasing the spirit of Mid- Autumn festival— happiness and family reunion.

Jacky & May Hong Kong Prewedding

When we first met Jacky to discuss the logistics of his photoshoot with his fiancée, May, he requested a simple red background for the shoot. We didn’t understand why this peculiar request was made, until we saw Jacky’s Facebook post. He stated that the reasoning behind the request was because it reminded him of May’s lips; just a glance would make his heart beat out of his chest. Of course, there’s more to their love besides this! With their first encounter, Jacky already knew that she was his Mrs. Right, so it was a no-brainer when he decided to propose to her and promise a fulfilling life ahead for the both of them.
