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。😊

Precious friendship between bridesmaids and the bride

‘The greatest gift of life is friendship, and I have received it.’ – Hubert H Humphrey.

True friendships are very rare these days, accustomed as we are with interacting on social media. They say that the friendships you make in school and college are the friendships you make for life; and this adage has never been truer than this group of friends I’m posting about today.

A bride choosing her bridesmaids is a bit like passing the ultimate friendship test. But when you have a posse of best friends that you can’t choose from, there’s only one thing to do – and that is to make all of them your bridesmaids! Sally is the latest in this group to get married and of course, all of her closest friends were there to celebrate the day with her. They’ve been through thick and thin together, become a sisterhood, and their love and support for each other really showed on Sally’s wedding day. We were honoured to witness such a wonderful display of true friendship on such a momentous occasion.

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.

31 Hong Kong Women Entrepreneurs Share Their Advice on How To Start A Business

Our chief photographer Susan Ng was recently interviewed by WL Media.
Susan was incredibly honored to be chosen as one of the HK Women Entrepreneurs and shared her advice for women-lead businesses in this HK roundup article.

Article by Winnie Tsoi and Minuca Elena | Hong Kong, Women entrepreneurship

There’s always been a bit of an unbalance in terms of gender within the photography industry. When I first started in the industry, there were only a few women; especially those who were wedding photographers. It was hard to find recognizable female wedding photographers who are good at their craft as well as able to take on the physical labors of being a wedding photographer.

Perhaps because I studied art at college and perhaps because I look at artistry in a different way to most people, gender wasn’t a really big deal to me and I certainly didn’t think it should affect the way I did my work. Therefore, I forged my way within the wedding photography industry with as much courage as I could possibly find.

I still remember my very first wedding job – probably over a decade back now; it was an unforgettable experience, both in terms of being my first paid job but also the schedule of the day and I admit that I found it very exhausting. I had never shot a wedding for a full day before and looking back on it now, at the time, it was probably the most exhausted I had ever been in my life. I have kept the photographs from that wedding – I still have an album for my own archives. Each time I look back on the photographs, I remember exactly what happened when I took the shot. I am very grateful that I was given the opportunity to step out on this new career path of mine – as before I became a wedding photographer, I was working as a music lecturer at a university. It may still be part of the arts curriculum, but learning how to become a professional photographer was quite a big step for me – more so when I decided to concentrate on being one for the rest of my life.

For those who want to start and lead a profitable business in Hong Kong, I would probably advise them to be courageous.

It takes a lot of determination and hard work to become successful, this is in business as well as life.

When you decide to start on that journey, there will be a lot of setbacks, a lot of hardships – and definitely a lot of unknowns – but self-belief and determination go a long way into helping you along that road. I can’t really say that I’m that successful for the moment, but I have been lucky enough to be a professional wedding photographer in this very competitive industry for over a decade now, with over two thousand weddings under my belt. Each wedding is memorable in its own right and I am always learning. My biggest motivation is that my clients will look at the photographs I give them and remember the moments that occurred with great fondness.

My hope is that with each photograph I take, I get to change the world’s perspective a little bit. I absolutely love my job – and I hope that I’ll be taking photographs until I can’t anymore.

Samantha & Mike / From wedding to pregnancy portraits

samantha-mike-Pregancy-01
We have had the wonderful honour of being witness to all the important milestones of Samantha and Mike’s journey together.  From their gorgeous wedding in Napa, to their post-wedding portraits, and then through shooting their pregnancy portraits, it has been a pleasure to have known this couple, and a privilege.  It is especially sweet to know that Samantha is pregnant with twins and we very much look forward to meeting their new additions to the family!

For this particular pregnancy portrait shoot, Samantha and Mike wanted somewhere comfortable and familiar, so we chose to hold the session in their home, with their very cute little pet dog.  As you can see, Samantha and Mike readied many props, not only to welcome the twins and to make this shoot extra special, but to create a very adorable set of portraits.  It is very clear that Mike is one proud father-to-be and Samantha makes one beautiful mother-in-waiting!  We hope that we’ll be able to continue taking portraits of this wonderful family, especially when they become a family of five!
