Tokyo post-wedding – Moe & Naoki.

The thing with friends I see once every few years, is that I never get a linear story.
But more like a game of space jump, quick cut montages.
And I fill in the blanks in between.

I remember Moe as the exchange student from Japan in 2005.
And she became the graduate who just finished job hunting, enjoying a holiday in Melbourne before becoming an office lady early 2007.
Cut to the OL complaining about work in Melbourne during 2009.
Cut to the OL complaining about work and (lack of) romance during 2011.
Cut to her coming back from a Hawaiian wedding with Naoki last year.

These post-wedding photos were taken during our most recent meeting in Tokyo.
They were in the middle of moving places.
They picked Shiba-koen near Tokyo Tower because normally it’s quiet.
And then we found out a huge festival was going on.
After shooting we had burgers near where they used to live.
They showed me to the station to get to my next destination and we bid farewell.
I remember the weather was sunny with blue skies.

I guess the next time we meet, I’ll be setting up for a family portrait session.

Format.

So I’ve done a bit of nip and tuck to the blog.

For instance, the work item on the menu that will lead you to a proper portfolio site.

Some I’ve blogged about in the past, some I’d only delivered the slideshow yesterday.
Some I’ve blogged but never shared, some had gone through some ‘remastering’.

Think of it as a ‘best of’ compilation of my photographs for the last 3 years.
I mixed the old with the new hoping to prove that they aren’t dated.
(And no, I don’t want to know if they are.)

This all started a few weeks(months?) ago as I was having difficulty to update this blog.

I didn’t know where to start.

So I decided to work backwards: Instead of choosing seventy shots from a specific wedding, why not choose one shot from many weddings?

Next thing I knew, I was doing the same to my portraits and food shots.
(It also gave me a good opportunity to backup and organise my files. If there’s one thing you should take away from this post, I hope it’s to BACKUP YOUR DATA on a regular basis.)

I’ve forgotten how I came across Format.com
It just seemed easy to navigate.
I do not mind the minimal nature of the layout, or how it is similar to millions of photography sites out there.

In fact, that’s the whole point of a portfolio, isn’t it?

To showcase photographs in the quickest, most uncluttered, least pain-in-the-rear-side manner.

Like the old saying: a picture is worth 141 characters.

I hope you enjoy all 14100 of them.

Sorry.

I know I’ve been naughty and lazy for not updating much.
Sometimes I make the mistake by assuming if I’m active on my Facebook page and Instagram then everyone should know what I’m up to.
Foolish, I know.
Will try to resume to posting at least once a week here.
While you wait here’s a shot I took in March at Neapoli – a pretty cool joint with a pretty cool name.

Sixpenny.

Sixpenny is a relatively new player in the fine dining world we call Sydney.
But I like this small place. It’s everything against what I know about Sydney.
It’s part Nordic, part Australian.
When you think it’s subtle and confident, you get surprised.
Now I didn’t get paid to write or cover this.
I do this to remind myself how lucky I am to be able to shoot weddings in different places.
With clients who enjoy my company and good food.
