2012

Salam ^^.

Ahh... Akhirnya ada sikit peluang tuk mencoret di kala tahun baru yang dah masuk hari ke 23. Demm konon busy :P. Pejam celik, Pejam celik dah dua tahun lebih aku mengadap kamera, dua tahun lebih juga nama QuluKis Photography menapak dalam dunia internet. Tak tahulah kalau jadi kat komputer ini saja, tapi cer taip dalam Google "qulu", first suggestion yang keluar "qulukis"!!! Harap aku bukan perasan sorang-sorang. Haha :D

Merantau ke sana ke mari mengambil gambar hari-hari bahagia pasangan baru memasuki alam perkahwinan, dari Raub, Pahang ke Pengerang, Johor..dari Sepang, Selangor ke Pontian, Johor..dari Lumut, Perak ke Segamat, Johor. Shutter count D5000 yang hampir mencecah 30k, beg kamera yang dah mula menunjukkan tanda-tanda perlu ganti baru :D. Alhamdulillah, mungkin ini jalan rezeki yang aku cari selama ini :).

Aku ingat lagi masa awal 2009, aku apply untuk kekosongan jawatan photographer di sebuah studio di Melaka. Topik yang hangat masa itu; gear/gadget bukan penentu gambar cantik, yet I got rejected because I only possessed an entry level camera body. Tapi hikmahnya aku merangkak perlahan-lahan dan Alhamdulillah, aku sampai ke tahap sekarang ini :).

Terima kasih tak terhingga untuk semua yang menyokong diri ini untuk menjadi lebih baik dari semasa ke semasa. Untuk family tersayang, kekasih hati, rakan-rakan dan kepada semua clients yang dihormati, terima kasih atas peluang serta kepercayaan yang diberikan kepada QuluKis Photography ^^.

So, here is collection, a picture of every event I've covered, from the very beginning till end of 2011's December :D:

Nora & Shrill - Parit Besar, Batu Pahat, Johor
She was my very best friend and one of my main supporter to go to this line of business :D. They've already got a daughter and moved to Melaka :).

 Fairul & Norzi - Jasin, Melaka
My first tag along event with the groom's elder brother, Faizal. The one that poisoned me to buy more gadget. Damn. Haha. Lost contact with him about a year ago.

Najib & Yati - Parit Besar, Batu Pahat, Johor
My first paid job :D. The groom is my friend's brother, she recommended me to him. A big credit goes to her, Siti Rahmah, who was actually my sister's teacher. How small the world is :D

Emy & Syed Hafidz - Putrajaya
And another acquaintance, the groom is Nora's younger brother :D. The ceremony was held in Kuala Lumpur  (if I'm not mistaken) and we got a chance to have an outdoor session in Putrajaya, which was my first time being there ^^.

Syed Hafidz & Emy - Parit Besar, Batu Pahat, Johor
This time around was at the groom's side. Felt a little less "kaku" shooting the event compared to my first time doing it :D.

Hafiz & Asilah - Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan
It was my first time shooting engagement session of my online friend :D. A bit awkward, since I don't know what posed or action I can used to not-married-yet-couple :p. 

Rizal & Azalina - Garden Hotel, Batu Pahat, Johor
My second tag along with Naser Ibrahim, together with Nasa and it was my first time having shooting hotel event.

Zulkarnain & Zoyanti - Taman Beroleh, Batu Pahat, Johor
Third tag along was with brother Rafi (lost contact already). On the event day I realized that the bride is my brother's friend sister. Small world, small world :D.

Azri & Roslinda - Pengerang, Johor
I've already been to Kukup, Pontian several times, to Perlis and Kota Bahru once. This event complete my travel to every end of Malaysia's Peninsular ^^.

Faizal & Laila - Pontian, Johor
Well, having the couple and their friends jumping around during outdoor session was just amazing. Also they are the first client to have custom album from me :D.

Alya Adriana - Pontian, Johor
First time shooting Majlis Potong Jambul; she is the niece of previous couple. 

Khairul & Azmira - Kota, Negeri Sembilan | Sepang Selangor
A lot happened during shooting this couple, including my beloved 18-55mm kit lens and flash problem. For a second, I felt lost that time :D.

Fauzi & Hamizah - TongKang Pechah, Batu Pahat, Johor
Both of them are my friends during my USM year and it was their engagement day, lovely couple I should say :D. Also it was my first time bringing off flash technique to my shooting style :).

Akmal & Salina - Parit Lapis Sempadan, Parit Raja, Johor
Another engagement session, this time for a teachers couple ^^.

 Wan Aidi & Isniah - Raub, Pahang
Been recommended by my facebook wife (eceh :p).

Awi & Ana - Parit Sapran Laut, Batu Pahat, Johor
I'm having fun shooting this couple and from this session I learned how to make crowd smile :D

Aly & Mell - Sg. Ayam, Batu Pahat, Johor
This engagement session was held in one of fishermen's village in Batu Pahat. Other than gaining experience, photography also brought me to every single places I've never imagined ^^.

Efizan & Shyda - Mersing, Johor
I took this job just to have a reason to go back to Mersing (ok, I lie :p). They are getting married this year, hopefully I get the tender to go back there to pass by my beloved old school ^^.

 Mahathir & Maswita - Seri Paya, Parit Raja, Johor
3 engagement sessions back to back ^^. If previous I went to fishermen's village, this one to end road of one "parit" in Parit Raja :D.

Azri & Azrina - Parit Baru, Parit Raja, Johor
One of lively couple :D.

Nizam & Zila - Parit Lapis Sempadan, Parit Raja, Johor
"Bang, senyum bang, senyum" :p.

Akmal & Salina - Parit Lapis Sempadan, Parit Raja, Johor
I've shot their engagement session, this time it's for reception for both on the bride and the groom side. Spontaneous act from the couple, rarely seen compared to others ^^. Also my first time shooting with Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G.

Aisah & Mr. Tunang - Parit Karjo, Batu Pahat
Don't misunderstood, the guy is her brother :D. She is one of my ex classmate during my primary school.

Farid & Ita - Parit Besar, Parit Raja, Johor
Who knows, QuluKis are known even in those pineapple plantation :D. But due to some problems, until now their album still in my hand and also because of this I strictly implement the "deposit rule" to prevent any of this ever happened again :).

Liza & Mr. Tunang - Mersing, Johor
A friend of a previous Mersing's couple.

Muhammad Aqil Haziq - Benut, Johor
Son of my sixth client :).

Hazq & Ira - Batu Pahat, Johor

And another convocation, this time was my brother's :D.

Another engagement session involving my childhood friend, also a teacher .

 Fawwaz & Sara -Segamat, Johor
Seems like almost all of my friends getting married. When's mine? :p

Jay & Noi - Parit Yusof, Muar, Johor
As I said in my post for this couple wedding, I learned that a pair of chair in the lawn, with a bit props + family members can give out a lot of happiness, moment better than the paid stage :D

Syafie & Diyana - Parit Bessar, Batu Pahat, Johor
Having lots of fun shooting this couple and sorry for ruining the bride's dress ^^.

Najib & Aisyah - Sg. Gersik, Muar, Johor
Lively couple, and friends :D.

Suhairie & Hanisah - Lumut, Perak
Final and the furthest one yet :D. Both of them are my friends in USM year. Meeting with my old friends, seems like we never really change a bit, except for the belly-thing part :p.

Begitulah akhirnya. Tahun 2012, insyaAllah,set target lebih tinggi, tambah lagi gadget, setup kedai dan bergerak sebagai Fulltime Wedding Photographer :D.

Postscript : Baru balik workshop Sesi Perkongsian Ilmu Rahsia Fotografi Perkahwinan Melayu oleh Noorizam Sabran bersama Ikram Ismail. Berbaloi hafal map kat google tuk ke sana :D.

Postscript lagi: Maafkan grammer ku yang carca marba. Kena sekali sekala guna BI, nanti berkarat dalam kepala ^^.
