Hari ni semua pakai baju melayu. Ini lah team CS yang berpejabat di CS secara fulltime, tolak 2 orang Udey dan Moqh yang dah balik awal ke kampung untuk mengelakkan kesesakan lalulintas. Tak sangka…kalau 3 tahun lepas buat video macam ni, mesti boring pasal ada saya sorang jer kot. Sekarang dah ramai dah…yang besar-besar sampai lah yang kecik2. Thanks a lot to all my team members keseluruhannya termasuk semua yang ada dalam video ini dan juga yang tiada dalam video ini seperti Moqh, Udey, Fuad Topa, Dinie Masjuki dan Khairul Hazwan serta aperantis2 CS yang kalau nak masuk sekali, dah tak muat dah lorong gallery ni utk shoot.
Kepada semua peminat CandidSyndrome, sejuta kemaafan dipohon dan InsyaAllah, kami telah menjumpai jalan yang lebih baik dalam memperbaiki sistem perkhidmatan kami secara lebih sistematik dan pasti tak akan mengecewakan semua. Selamat Hari Raya Maaf Zahir & Batin!
I went to Jakarta few days ago. I had meetings with a few people ranges from suppliers, designers, photographers as well as fans (ada jugak di Jakarta). It was a short trip. 1 of the morning, I managed to get a chance for a photohunting with a well-known photographer in Indonesia, Agah Permadi. Agah Permadi is a musician and he’s the one that thought the well-known Rarindra how to get light ray without using photoshop. I did learn a lot form him and InsyaAllah will put more pictures on that. Meanwhile, happy watching! enjoice!

Some fulltimers in photography industry were badly shocked with the flood of thousands of freelance / part time photographers in our local scene. They are partimers who earned RM2-4k a month with their day job and just take a photography assignment to make an extra money in the weekend. They don’t really mind about the charges. As for the full timers, they put their life and effort to focus in photography. That’s their bread and butter. More full timers now back to their old job…they started to work elsewhere again instead of being the player of the industry. They can’t afford to be a full timers that need to compete with a part timers who don’t have big overhead.
People may think…less is better, less competition. But for me…you will run faster if others are chasing u. Thank God, I’m not so much affected by that phenomena, but I’m really sad looking at some good and talented photographers start to starve. They are jobless due to the freelancers around that really don’t know how to charge appropriate amount. Appropriate means…a fair price. Not too expensive and not too cheap. By charging appropriate amount, they can grow-up their career and at the same time…not killing others’ life (career).
It’s a good thing to happen if you’re thinking in a clients’ shoes. However, in the long run…you’ll find the good and talented photographers will slowly faded. They’ll be out of the scenes anymore. They can’t afford to take photography as their bread and butter. Then…we’ll be just like what we used to be 10 years ago. The time we have to import good photographers from Australia, Thailand, Indonesia and even from USA and pay them USD10-20k just because you want the quality.
Now, they (fulltime professional) have the quality but they need a full focus doing nothing else then photography. By that, they can grow their artistic skills, quality services and more that will please you.
Please ask yourself…what do you really want now. A cheap and bad quality or slightly more expensive but come with quality and commitment? This workshop is to educate more people the right way to do costing so they will not OVERCHARGE (good news for clients) and in the other hand…not to UNDERCHARGED (bad news to clients). But getting it in a good balance…it’s fair for all people. Fair for me and fair for you.
