Salam to all my beloved friends :)
During browsing the internet last few years , i found a very interesting quote by one of the world’s top photographer in his blog. Using his iPhone via Amazing Type-writer apps , Chase Jarvis wrote : “Find your thing and do that thing better than anybody else does that thing even if you think that thing has no value because I promise you that it does. And I promise you that other people will see this value too.”
This quote stuck in my head since i read it in December 24th until this very moment I’m writing this entry for Fotomamu. And from that day, I believed in it.
Having a photography blog was like having another part time job. What ever you do, never leave your blog void of updates more than 1 week ( as being told by some world top bloggers) , and I try to stick with that consistency. And of course , due to never ending demand our our busy work schedule and life routine, I also sometimes missed to update my blog ;(
But still I forced myself to have new materials to update my blog at least once a week, and to do that I started to bring my camera and my iPhone everywhere I go. I force myself to see ‘photo-opportunities’ everywhere I go ( or where ever I am). And I started to see things differently , I stopped to see everything , I discovered new details in familiar places, and find an unexplained joy going to new places and trying new things in my life. And I poured all of the experiences in my Fotomamu.
Last February I got a message from Dunia Kamera’s journalist Mohd Khairil to meet up for a quick interview session to be featured in the magazine. And of course for a small time photographer like me , I was shocked and overwhelmed :) . We meet up at KLCC and have a nice chat and after some emails , finally I was featured in the magazine April 2012’s issue. One of the important thing I got to know that I was found trough this blog.
Thank you to Majalah Dunia Kamera for this chance of a lifetime.
For my dearest wife Nur Hidayah, thank you for always being there for me, supporting my ever growing passion for photography. And special thanks to Andrew Boey , my photography sifoo also the Director of Nikonian Academy where I learned mostly all of my photography skills , my friends who were always supported me ( whether you guys realize it or not hehe) .
