Happy Chinese/Viet/Lunar New Year everyone! Here are some of my photos from last week’s festivities from a few of our local CFM/HK Supermarkets. Please check them out for the best selection of food and groceries in metro Atlanta. www.cityfarmers.market. I sure hope that by next year the big events and pageants will return again! 🙂
Last year in 2020 I did manage to take a lot of pictures. There weren’t as many portrait sessions/hangouts that is pretty much my lifeblood, but all things considered I can’t complain about still having the freedom to even have photo walks. The images were sparsely posted on FB, but most just ended up on […]
It’s been a cold and cloudy winter down here in Georgia, but that’s pretty normal. With the lack of events happening I figured now would be a good time to get out there and try to capture some different landmarks and views around Atlanta. I’ve always said it’s good to be a tourist in your […]
The other day I converted lots of my random videos into animated gifs. I wanted a random grid of looping videos on my main portfolio site, but it was definitely slow to load and a bandwidth killer. It was still a fun half afternoon experiment though, manually cutting and exporting these in Photoshop, the old […]
Hello everyone! Around the holidays I added another tool to the fleet, an ancient Sigma SD10! This camera was announced sometime in 2003, and I lucked out because it came with 3 lenses, a flash, battery grip, and a hard case! Plus the camera looked like it had barely been used! So here’s what I’ve […]
Film will always have a certain pull on me. Even though I have tons of digital cameras that will produce instant pictures that I can edit immediately, the texture and process of film is something unique in this era. One combo I haven’t seen any photographer online use is the Nikon 105mm 1.4E on a […]
Talento Latino Modeling SchoolUnique Fashion Show 2020 – 10th AnniversaryDecember 20, 2020 | La Mansion Event Hall | Chamblee, GA Thanks to everyone who posed for pictures! 🙂 These are a few images that caught my eye. More to come in the following post! Event Photos: Boon Vong
It hasn’t been a normal year, but for this second half, I’m glad that every first Sunday of the month gives us a chance to basically stroll through Gran Turismo in real life. Thanks to Caffeine and Octane, the US’s biggest monthly car show, for giving us something to look forward to! Best part of […]
Hi everyone! I bought one of the cameras I dreamed about way back in the day…for only $18!! These days folks make fun of you for having even a 3 year old phone, so it was a nice challenge to use a digital camera from 2002! Here are some of the pictures I got with […]
My 100 Page Event Photography book came in the other day. It features my work stuff and all the cool things that used to happen.
With all the hoopla around the Canon EOS R5 and R6 announcements I thought I’d post some recent random portraits taken with the RP and random lenses. I’ve figured out how to get more “oomph” out of the raw files to my liking. It just makes me scratch my head at why Canon made the […]
This came in the other day after a pretty long wait, a Sam’s Club’s 6×8″ Photo Book with a windowed cutout in the cover. They have two other cover choices but I opted for the the cheapest option at $6.86 just to see the quality. The first thing you notice is, that’s an awful big […]
Caffeine and OctaneJuly 5, 2020 | Perimeter Mall | Atlanta, GA First Caffeine and Octane of this summer season because of well, you know… So it was fun to be able to actually go out and take pictures (and afterwards eat good food!) Stars of the show in my opinion were: the Koenigsegg Regera […]
I’m still waiting for my other prints, but here’s what came in the other day: a mousepad, an 8×10″ puzzle and 50 free prints. (It seems the drawback for Sam’s Club Free Shipping on all photo print items is that I have to wait a very long time. 7-14 business days is a bit frustrating […]
Hello everyone, I got these in the other day, 8×8″ Lay Flat Premium Photo Books from Sam’s Club. These are essentially smaller more portable versions of the 12×12″ books that I order through Costco. In fact they are printed at the same Fujifilm plant in SC. It’s just odd that Costco doesn’t offer this size […]
Hello everyone, these came in yesterday, a new product offered by Sam’s club: 4×6″ Lay Flat Mini Photo Books starting at $6.86! I designed a few so I could get a feel of the interface and of course see how the print quality is. Here are some of my initial thoughts. Notes: Very nice sturdy […]
Hi there everyone I decided to try some of Sam’s Club’s photo print items. I’m still using Costco for my big books and other photographic prints, but Sam’s Club actually offers a bunch more items in different sizes and options. So like most things in life, it’s useless to argue one brand over another, if […]
As y’all know from my past posts, I’m a big fan of the 12×12″ Costco photobooks. Since I’m sitting at home all day everyday in 2020 thus far, I’ve occupied my time organizing my various visual work (i.e. digital photo hoarding) ;). I thought it would be nice to make some calendars, just to see […]
Today I made a “fake” Travel Magazine featuring Lao/Thai/Khmer New Year!! Alas, this year there’s nothing of the sort. Oh well, hope everyone is sitting safe in their homes watching some good movies.
My “Fake” Lifestyle/Girl Magazine! Again, every photo except one was by me. All editing and layout by me. Again, just practicing some design while under the countrywide quarantine here in the U.S. (I sure do hope all of the restaurants depicted are still around after all this is over)
Another Design Project I gave myself, make some “fake” Fashion Magazines! Again, all the photos and design by me, shamelessly copying the elegant and simple magazines I thumbed through when I was younger.
I hope everyone is doing okay during the pandemic and quarantine. I renewed the domain name and hosting for my website the other day, and realized I’ve had it for 17 years now. Crazy. In all that time never thought the world would be under these unique circumstances. Anyways, I’ve been giving myself different creative […]
Well, with all that’s going on in the world right now, at least it’s looking really pretty out there… 🙃

March 7. 2020 | Monroe, GA It sure was brisk this morning for the volleyball tournament, but glad I got up early and made it out to Monroe. Everyone was competitive and the spikes were serious. Hopefully this is the last cold day for “winter” in Georgia, as the spring forward time switch is Sunday. […]
Congrats to the Chin Burmese Community of Atlanta for organizing such a fun event! This was my first time attending, as I’ve missed it every single year. It was really neat to be able to document this for one of the newest refugee immigrant communities here in Atlanta. I started off life in the U.S. […]
