Published Work: Expatriate Lifestyle & Time Out KL

I've been busy on editorial assignments for Time Out KL and Expatriate Lifestyle lately. It was exciting to shoot for such titles. I love the challenge in editorial assignments due to the fact that there is a very small window to shoot and also I'll have to shoot with minimal equipment. Not to mention that I have no idea of what the location presents itself, in terms of settings, lighting and finding good angles. In such cases, I'm happy to see that common sense and making the most of the situation turns out really well for me. Check them out. :)

My shot is on the cover! Time Out KL, April 2011 Issue. 
Credits on the inlay, and I shot the chocolate cake image too.

Here are the section which most of my images are published in the April 2011 Time Out KL issue.

My photos are featured in the cover article of March 2011, Expatriate Lifestyle magazine. This beer photo is not mine, though. I'm posting this cover to illustrate which issue was my photos published.

The editors loved this photo. I strongly feel that it really projects the character of this bar owner of The Green Man, Dougie Roberts 
Here's Allison Martin, owner of Bulldog English Pub for Expatriate Lifestyle, March 2011.

Prior to the March Issue, I've shot this cover for Expatriate Lifestyle for the February 2011 issue with my partner Denis Erroyaux, from Brussels. Again, it was truly amazing.

Here's the inlay for Expatriate Lifestyle magazine February 2011 issue with our credits for the cover.

This is my favorite shot that I took. We took advantage of the natural light coming in from the windows and filled with a 580EX flash with a translucent white umbrella reflector from camera left. I loved the way Christine Sterk, Managing Director of Asia On Time sits herself in a very relaxing pose.


  1. Thank you Dila. Lama tak dengar khabar. Terima kasih jenguk2 blog saya. :)

  2. gambar last tu my fav. just nak tanya, "flash on right" tu, kanan kamera or kanan subjek? tq

  3. Putat, thanks for the very good question. Kanan subject. So saya dah betulkan caption menjadi "flash from camera left".

  5. Hi Azhar,

    How have you been doing? Hope you remember me. The cover shoots you did up with Khairul so far for HRMY & AMMY have been amazing. Just want to say you have a great eye for amazing portraits and you have build your reputation even higher as a great photographer.
