Alexis and Carrie are one of my many clients abroad who came home to have their photos taken here in Malaysia. He is a watchmaker, she is in marketing and sales. I haven’t really met a watchmaker before so it was very interesting listening to Alexis’ journey and experience as a watchmaker. Alexis is a Bidayuh and Carrie is of Chinese descent so they want to include part of their heritage into the shoot; hence we have a session in both their traditional outfit. It is always a nice touch to go back to one’s roots as it reflects the personality and background of oneself. In the shoot, Alexis mimics a traditional Bidayuh dance known as Rejang Be’uh. This is a traditional dance usually performed after the harvest season that imitates the movement of the eagle by flapping the wings. It was my first time witnessing this dance and it made our session a whole lot more interesting and unique. Alexis is also a big fan of basketball and Slamdunk. So, Carrie suggested to go along with a Slamdunk theme. All these unique elements tells a story of their own and all of it came out rather nicely! Team Shohoku, go go go!
It has been a while KLPAC. Feels good to revisit this venue, and recapture with a whole new vision and ideas.
