I was extremely pleased to be handcrafting for one of our country’s most renowned photographers. Louis Pang, who has been travelling the world and giving talks and seminars is well known for his high standards for his works and everything that surrounds it. His wife Jasmine along with Louis decided to have an 11×14 handcrafted Artisan Keepsake Box, holding 18 fine art prints on Canson Rag Photographique. It is a pleasure working with them.
An AWESOME photographer and one which I have the amazing honor to call not just a client, but a partner! Congratulations to Jacques Mateos on being featured in the world renowned Cosmopolitan Bride magazine in the UK and China! Jacques is based in France, but has been called upon to travel all over the world capturing many amazing weddings and portraits. His images never ceases to amaze me. I look forward to many more of his shots, and without a doubt, to see them popping up in magazines all around the world! Visit Jacques Mateos to see more of his works here.
We’ve got ourselves some gorgeous new fonts folks! Fine, clean, elegant. These fonts will automatically replace the previous 18pt fonts used for imprinting. If you’d like to use the previous fonts, just let us know in the comment/instructions box at the bottom of the order form.
We’ve all been there (and most of us are guilty of doing it too!). Haggle. When we become working photographers or business owners, we realise it’s something we do not hold favourable. It puts into question our ability, our worth. “Aren’t I worth that much?”. Some of us stand firm, some of us give in. Which one are you? Marketing based on price will always, and inevitably come out with only one winner – the client (a.k.a, the end consumer) and never the business owner(s). So the next time you’d like to avoid clients haggling, try putting up this sign I found on the web. It’s unoffensive, but effective.
Shen Yeo of Shensnaps is one heck of a photographer. Sounds raw, but that’s just the truth. Shen is not only a WPPI award winner, but also the first and only one in Malaysia to bag 1st place in the internationally recognised WPPI 2009 Print Competition, among numerous other awards and accolades that’s in his pocket. We were obviously stoked when Shen called us to do a couple of Simplrs! A great guy with an unbelievably friendly glow, it’s no wonder clients are flocking to him. Here are just several of many from his albums. More outstanding designs…….
Azim of Azim Puch Photography made his first sample and I was pretty much blown away by the variety of shots he had. You can pretty much agree that his shots speak for themselves. We’re thrilled to see that so many photographers are discovering that simple designs absolutely rocks! They showcase one thing, which are the shots themselves, instead of the intricate designs that pull focus away from what’s suppose to be the reason for an album in the first place. We’re glad to have you on board Azim!

Photographers always have deadlines to meet, and the client’s expectation of their album arrival is always a priority. So it was no surprise that Nick’s (Nicholas Leong Photography) own wedding album was long overdue – the traits of a dedicated photographer. We’re so proud that he has given us the honor of showcasing his own wedding shots in a Simplr album. The designs were clean, simple and focused on purely highlighting the works of art that these shots truly are. These shots were taken in breathtaking Cebu, Phillipines by Mark Leo of Stories.my and Ian Chong of eeyern photography. Verdict: Absolutely Rocks! According to Nick, there were just too many amazing shots, and selecting these images to fit into a 12″x12″ Simplr with 40 pages was quite a feat. Check out Mark Leo and Ian Chong’s website and you’ll no doubt agree.
When it comes to freezing emotions into an image, few can rival Grace and her team from Stories.my. There are some blogs and websites I go back to time and again to see what’s going on, and Stories.my is one I frequent. She and her team have a knack for capturing colours too. Read her posts, and you will find these two gel in perfect harmony – colours and emotions. I wonder if those are her secret ingredients for the success that she has been enjoying all this time. Hmmm….?? Here are just some of her shots from a recent album. I felt they broke the norm with this one. Enjoy.
