I’ve been quite busy last few weeks, but I still think it is fun to share some of my recent photo shoots.
It was a fun shooting session with my friend, Tommy, owner of the Kinson Burger & Bar, inside the Grand Waterfall of Kornhill Plaza.

Thanks GUTSO for the cappuccino while I was shooting, the caffeine give me extra energy and inspiration during the shooting, and I’ll be back for sure to try the guilty-filled marshmallow toast. ;P
