    One of the Best Wedding Photographer in the UK

    My usual routine as a wedding photographer is to start my day checking e-mail about upcoming weddings, customer follow-up, or chase-up!  With a busy schedule these days, it is sad to say that I hardly have the time to spend on entering any wedding photography competition, so it came as a nice surprise that I received a congratulatory note announcing that I am one of the best wedding photographer in the UK! Thank you Tom from The Eventa Group (a company that organises various corporate and group events including activity breaks, spa weekends, hen weekend activities at Hen Heaven, and stag dos for couples all over UK).  Before this e-mail,…

    Digital Photographer Special 100th Issue – Shoot To Win

    Several months ago, I was contacted by Digital Photographer magazine asking if they could interview me about my feelings on winning the “Kodak UK Wedding Photographer of the Year”, and that it will be featured under an article about “winning competitions”.  It is a very humbling experience; and I felt very honoured to be asked, because Digital Photographer is not only one of the most established photography magazines in the UK, it also happens to be one of my favourite photography magazines that I read religiously, as it is filled with loads of useful information and interesting articles.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT: I am the greatest photographer… says who?

    Hello! I’m Shirley – Ken’s wife, or in Ken’s words, I am the ‘boss’ (he knows deep down that I’m not!).  Well this evening, after putting our little son to bed, I have come up with an idea for Ken’s blog.  I would like contribute my little thoughts onto this blog.   I don’t know about you, but I think a blog of a photographer should not just restrict its contents purely on photography… agree?

    Ken in action

    I have been to Paris many times this year.  However, it is a pity that I have never had a video of myself in action being recorded.  In September, one of my clients, Eric recorded a video of me while I was shooting the pre-wedding for him and his fiancee.  I didn’t know that he was going to create a short video until he posted it on Facebook for me.  Thanks Eric for your outstanding effort.

    "Humbled" to be awarded the Kodak Wedding Photographer of the Year 2009

    Yesterday, it was my first time to attend the MPA (Master Photographers Association) Awards Dinner in Hilton, Newcastle.  I was very excited a night before as it is such a prestigious event.  I feel like I was attending the Oscar UK Photography award dinner.  During the ceremony,  I had an opportunity to meet up with other talented photographers such as Jingna Zhang from Singapore, a fashion photographer from Zemotion, Ukay of Ukayphotography, and Stephen Loh, a Wedding Photographer from Singapore.  It was such an enjoyable night.
