This is my first post here and have just returned from a holiday in Uniquely Singapore. I used to be in IT, worked 13 years for Brunei subsidiary of Singapore Computer Systems as Sales/Account/Operations Manager before deciding enough was enough, I needed a 360 deg change. Three years prior however, I started a business distributing/wholesaling Subaru (IHI) Turbochargers to buyers all over the world and made a name on the North American Subaru Impreze Owner's Club (NASIOC) following sales of over 1000 turbos later, the US dollar got weak and I relaunched my presence in photography professionally with portfolios in Event, Wedding and Commercial work.
I'm official Events photographer to HSBC, Standard Chartered, TAIB Bank/Insurans, Asia Inc Forum, Toyota/Lexus, Brunei Economic Development Board, Thano Advertising, and in my journey I have met and photographed with Air Asia's CEO Tony Fernandes, CNN's Lorraine Hahn, Manchester United's Retired Midfielded Striker Lou Macari, US Rock Band Population 1 (featuring former "Extreme" lead singer Nuno Battencourt)
I'm also personal photographer to Pehin Kapitan China Kornia Di Raja Dato Paduka Awg Lau Ah Kok who is the leader of the Chinese Community in Brunei and also the Chairman of Hua Ho Chain of Department Store.
I used to have a web gallery but a recent spade of FTP issues with the provider in the States had forced me to take the entire site down and I have since registered with Yahoo to host a new site called www.SHIMworld.com (no content yet). I do however have the following Blogs and a couple of galleries to share for now
