Bridal Ao Dai

It’s been a while since my last post. With so many photoshoots happening next to one another, I had a backlog of photos to go through. Then my computer literally ran out of steam so I had to upgrade to one that has enough grunt to process 24mb raw files. Below are some photos from a bridal Ao Dai (Vietnamese traditional long dress). As always, check out my Facebook Page for more photos and up to date posts.

Enjoy!

It’s been a while since my last post. Unfortunately, I can’t post photos from some of the photoshoot as they were for private collection only.

Here’re a few photos from a recent portfolio photoshoot for Janice

Enjoy!

DiWine Food Photography

Today I did a job photographing Italian dishes for a newly opened Italian restaurant, DiWine. The best part of food photography is I got to try out the dishes after the photos were taken. I must say that the foods at DiWine are delicious. I’m seriously considering going back there to dine. If you’re craving for authentic Italian foods, then drop by Marco’s restaurant in Darlinghurst.

Studio photoshoot with Cocheene

A couple of week ago, I got together with some fellow photographers for a studio photoshoot in a studio at Chippendale. It’s always good fun doing shoots like this. It’s a chance to meet like minded people and try out new photography ideas. The theme for this shoot was high key. We had Cocheene Smith as our model and Olivia was our HMUA.

Having recently purchased a DSLR with video capability, I gave it a go filming a BTS video clip. Obviously, I still have a lot to learn when it comes to video 🙂 You can see the video clip below.

Here’s a few photos from the shoot. More photos can be found on my Facebook page.

Ao dai trang (white Vietnamese long dress)

Vietnamese ao dai is a national costume. White ao dai used to be the school uniform for girls in high school. I’ve recently had a couple of white ao dai tailor made for a personal project. It’s a photo project portraying women in this beautiful and elegant dress. As mentioned in previous post, Nhu wore the dress at her pre-wedding photoshoot. Here are a few more photos of Nhu in the traditional ao dai.

If you like this beautiful dress and would like to be part the project, please let me know and we will arrange for a photoshoot. In the meantime, enjoy the photos here and more in the Ao Dai photos page.

Nhu & James Pre-Wedding

Nhu, a friend of mine, and her fiance, James are getting married end of the month. They are going to have a location wedding. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it to their wedding. Nhu & James asked if I could do a pre-wedding shoot for them. I am looking to start a personal project “Ao Dai Trang” (White Vietnamese traditional long dress). I asked if Nhu would like to wear “Ao Dai” for the shoot. Nhu & James is a lovely and friendly couple. I wish them all the best with their life together as husband and wife.

Yoga instructor photoshoot

Nhu is a long time supporter of Mark Nguyen Photography. She’s been practising Yoga and starting to teach Yoga at a local studio. Nhu wanted to have some photos for her portfolio and web site. It was a beautiful day in Sydney. We were out, along with James, Nhu’s fiance, on Sydney harbour for some Yoga pose photos. I must admit that I have a new found respect to all Yoga practitioners after the photoshoot. Here’re some from the photoshoot. More photos can be found on my Facebook page.
