Going green with 4 models and 1 light…

Posted in Models, Photography with tags , , , , , , , , on March 31, 2010 by ari7474

Recently, I had a shoot with 4 nigerian models. I’ve never shot a nigerian before so it was something new to me.

When they came to my studio, it really was like having Beyonce there. Hot bods, nice abs and nice booty too 🙂

the 4 super models

As soon as I started taking the light reading, 1 light decided to die on me. Let me explain, I used to have 3 lights. 1 already went for servicing and now 1 decided to just go to sleep. I’m left with 1 light and 4 models to shoot. Luckily that 1 light could sustain the shoot.

The idea for me apart from the beauty shots was that I wanted to shoot something with a message. Something smart. Something that could make the viewer think. And being me, of course I came up with it 🙂

Here’s the concept of what I had in mind.. In view of all this going green and save the earth.. I came up with this..

“It doesnt have to be like this”

See? Could you see the message here? If we dont take care of our environment, this is how our kids would go fishing in the future. Smart eh? Not only that, I’m actually doing my part here in making others realize that “we could and should save the earth”.

Okay. Now, enough with saving the world. Let’s talk about the beauty shots. Hehehe.. My fave part 🙂

You see, 1 of the models look like Naomi Campbell. And I wanted to portray her that way (minus the handphone throwing and all). Here she is… Let me present to you..

M…

Nice eh… Well.. that’s the problem. I have plenty of nice shots of her and I’m having a tough time to choose.

Next up is Precious. She was the one who contacted me for the shoot. Awesome body and she pulled off some really high fashion poses.

She really wanted something with torn jeans and this was what we came up with.

Preciously HOT

Awesome right? Well.. thank you for the compliments.

You know what, I’m so proud of myself. I managed to do what I like and also help the environment at the same time. It takes a genius like myself to come up with things like these. I hope you’ll recycle and bring your own bag to the supermarket after reading this and also use those expensive energy saving bulbs at home.

Thank you 😀

Inspirational thoughts that could conquer the WORLD..

Let’s see…

Recently, i’ve been staring reading books and manuals for work. It’s quite.. err.. how should i say it.. err… i’ll just say it’s okay lah. Work is work right? It’s NOT supposed to be earth shattering kan… Anyway, my fingers are itchy for the shutter button now. But.. what should I shoot?

Ahah!!

My friend told me that you could get inspirations from books and magazines like playboy, penthouse, FHM, Vogue and all… The articles and images are quite inspirational 😀

Since i’m eager to shoot, so, we’ll just discuss the images lah.

The light control is awesome. The poses are.. err.. awesome too 🙂

Now… after reviewing those images, I’m thinking of doing a shoot.

Camera: Checked

Lights: Checked

Backdrop: Checked

Model: NOT checked

Theme: Checked

Review again.

What’s missing? Oh yaa.. Models…

How? Any volunteers?

What??? All of you want to be my models???

Seriously???

WHAT?? Just kidding????

Hey… dont play play okay… NOT funny.

Okay lah, here’s the story… I’m actually doing a shoot soon but i need something out of this world. Can any of you suggest any themes for me?

Here’s some images from my previous shoots that I’ve done and I need something different. Have a look…

Kelly

Leo

Fiza

Krystal

So peeps, any suggestions?

Well, if you do, just pen down your thoughts here and the winner will get a “teh o ice limau” & Nasi Ayam okay?

Sounds interesting right?

Now get your thoughts spinning and let me know… You wouldnt want to waste those juicy chicken rice and ice lemon tea right…

p/s: why do i feel like the prize offered here wont attract much participation ah? Having makan with me is already considered GRAND… oh well.. that could be the main prize then.. the makan with me… HAHAHAHHAHAA…

Here’s some Macho and Manly stuff :)

Hey peeps…

It’s been tough lately. For me that is.. I’ve been doing some really hard work. Like… studying :p

I’d love to kiss and tell all the things I’ve been studying but being me.. I’m not going to bore you with all those. Instead, I’m going to story you, a very interesting story. No wait.. I’ve got more than 1 story to tell so.. I’m gonna story stories for you. Hehehehe… I’m not sure if that’s grammatically correct but hey.. it’s my blog and it’s not like I’m writing for the newspaper or something kannn…

Recently, me and a few like minded buddies, decided to form a group.

It’s called….

Jeng..jeng…

the Two Forties.

Cool kan the name. Well, basically it means, we’re a bunch of gear heads that loves “tracking” and we’re all in the 2 mins 40sec ish range.

Or, we aspire to be in that range. Like for me, my personal goal is to break the 2 min 40 sec barrier. Without using slicks. So.. with 200++ ponies, it’s quite a challenge.

To show how cool we are, we even have a group in Facebook. Haaaa… Terrer kan?

As of now, we have many members. In the region of 8-16 cars. Massive right?? Hehehehehee…

Here’s the group of people that changed the idea into a reality. Very handsome and macho and terrer people.

Will be uploading more stories on our future projects but to date, we’re having a go-kart challenge this Sunday. It’s going to be awesome 🙂

Soon, we’ll be all over the newspapers, magazines, tabloids and the likes and with fame, I dont think we can lead a normal life going out without having to disguise ourselves.

Wakakakakakaka…..

Anyway, it wasnt all just cars for me. Being a multi talented guy with good looks, I also went around town with my camera.

Here’s what I shot that made it into my “fave” folder this month…

Onitsuka Tiger & Tigress.

Nice kan? These 2 lovebirds cant get their hands off each other. So lovey dovey.

After that, I went for another shoot. This time, it was with Leobabelicious.

The idea for me when I did this shoot was to not make it into another “Nose Bleed” picture. Some photographers might understand what I mean but either way, have a look at the next picture and if you like, you can leave a word or two on what you think of it okay?

Leobabe’s Peepshow

So tell me.. is the picture nice or SUPER nice?

heheheheh…

Well, that’s all for today peeps… it’ll be awhile before I write again as I can predict, I’ll be busy for the next few weeks (or months) so.. until then, thanks for dropping by.

Cheers 😀

Disputes???

Posted in Cars, Friends, Models, Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 26, 2009 by ari7474

Normally.. when guys chat.. it’s always a story of “mine is bigger than yours” kinda thing..

Everybody says that their more handsome lah.. better in bed lah.. got anaconda lah.. 3 hours lah.. etc…

But when pressed to show.. semua lari… Hahahahhaaa…

Anyway, I’m not like that. If i say “I’m hensem and 3 hours..” it’s true. :p

Okay.. so what’s this post about then.. Well.. recently, we had a teh tarik chat and we started chatting about whose car is faster. It’s a never ending story of “my car got this exhaust.. got this intake.. got this sticker (stickers are known to add horsepower..hehehe) and so on and so forth..

To settle it.. we decided to drag and settle the problem.

Nice kan the picture?

Eh.. wrong.. DAMN nice kan the picture???

Hehehe.. Seriously.. Jokes aside.. this was an impromptu decision and it was done very quickly. Because of my skills and terrerness, we managed to wrap up the session within 2hours..

Well.. here’s a few more of the model.. The lighting was only the street lights as it was raining and my sb800 (flash) decided to just sleep after it got wet 😦

Thanks for viewing and hope to see you all again next year.. Hahahahahahaha…

Flamin’ Hot…

Posted in Models, Photography, Travel with tags , , , , on September 28, 2009 by ari7474

Heyloooo people..

 

Let’s pretend like we’re in a concert and the Super Star on stage is asking the audience okay..

Since it’s my story.. So I’ll be the Super Star and you all can be the audience lah.. hehehe..

 

Ari Handsome: How’s everybody feeling? 

Readers: Feeling HOT !!!

Ari Handsome: Feeling WHAT??!!!

Readers: Feeling FLAMIN’ HOT!!!

Ari Handsome: YEAH!!!!

 

*at this moment.. you all clap clap your hand and do standing ovation laa..

 

Okay.. so now you may ask me.. why so hot laa right? And here’s the story why…

 

Recently, I was in Jakarta. For work incase you’re asking.. And while I was there, the weather was really Hot and I met a beautiful young girl by the name of Flame. 

So.. that’s where I got the title.. Flaming Hot.

Smart eh? I think I’m really cool lah for being so smart to think of such a cool title 🙂 LoL!

 

Ok..ok.. enough with the compliments.. I’m flattered already..

 

Now, let me introduce Flame to you.. Well.. her name is Flame. 

She’s young and she happens to be a model. 

 

Flame 5

 

When I was there, I took some pictures of her when she and her brother Jesse took me to Taman Mini. Taman Mini is like a mini Indonesia. Very nice. But the only problem was, the park was mostly closed. So, we didnt get to see that much though. 

 

Indo Flag

Ship

 

Ok.. let me continue my introduction of Flame..

She’s actually Portuguese-Dutch-Indian-Indonesian (Quite a handful eh? hehehe..) 

Currently, she’s teaching English in Jakarta and taking a break from modeling coz she’s 4 months pregnant. Even when pregnant, she could take some time off to show me around. That’s very nice of her and her brother.

We also went for some original Nasi Padang there. Excellent. Nothing like what we have here in KL.

 

Anyway, before I went back to my hotel, they brought me to some local DVD shop there. Bought a few souvenirs  to bring back home lah 😉 hehehe..

That’s when I took the picture of Flame which you saw at the top just now..

So.. before I end my story about my Jakarta trip, here’s a few more of Flame and her brother Jesse. 

 

Flame 2

Jesse 1

 

*ok.. now you can do your round of applause like when the Super Star finish their performance on stage…

 

Clap..clap..clap.. 

 

Thank You…  😉 

 

Flame 4

Let me tell you that since my last post, there has been plenty of happenings in my life. 

Some ups and downs that really shook me a bit but it has stabilized a little now. Things have settled in and I can story a bit laa what happen. I’ll tell you about the “ups” okay..

 

“Say again??” What.. you want me to tell you what happen now..?

You’re so excited that you cant wait another minute to hear my story???

 

Oh well.. if you insist.. who am I to resist right.. hehehe…

 

Last week.. jeng..jeng..

 

jeng..jeng..

 

suspense is building up eh..

 

cold sweat is trickling down your neck..

 

jeng..jeng…

 

TADAAAA!!!!

 

The surprise is… my WEBSITE is up and alive at

 

http://www.ari7474.com/

Website

 

Cool kan..kan???

I’ve got an idea.. why dont ya’ll go and check it out and tell me what you think.

What? You dont have time to do so?

Eh.. Come on laa.. It’s really nice.. Got nice pictures and all.. Very pretty. hehehe..

 

 

And then.. guess what again?

I went to the Sepang track with all the other Type-Rs. It was a really good outing with those guys but the main thing that made my day was.. I broke my own personal best time. Just like Usain Bolt. I broke my own personal world record. Previously, it was 2min 47sec but this time, I did 2min 44sec. That’s shocking news kan.. I shaved off 3 seconds. And I was wearing jeans some more. Imagine if I was using shorts and didnt eat breakfast and go poo poo before the session, I could cut down a few  more seconds kan. Sure become very terrer and then Ferrari would call me up to replace Massa and all.. Haish.. 

HCOC 2

Stig & 7474

 

Hehehee… Enough stories about me now.. I m not so conceited laaa… Not as much as you think. heh. 

Just a few days ago, I was at a friends studio. His name is Azman and he just did his “studio mudio” launch. Very nicely done. Am very proud of him. Here’s some pics I took during the launch.

Estee Lauder Model Search 2009 by ari7474

Posted in Models, Photography with tags , , , , , on July 26, 2009 by ari7474

Just a few days ago.. some of my best mates decided to climb Mount Kinabalu. They invited me but I on the other hand, had a trip to Tanjung Jara in Terengganu. 

Now, if you were me.. which would you go? 

a) To strain my muscles and climb the mountain. 

b) To spend 3 days with the winners of the Estee Lauder Model Search 2009 competition.

 

EXACTLY! I chose “b” as well coz it’s the noble thing to do 😉

 

So.. Ladies and gentlemen, let me show you Tg Jara. 

Tg Jara

Nice kan? 

Wrong.. It’s Damn Nice.. Hahahhaa…

 

Anyway, lets not waste time and get straight to the best part. The shooting of the models. 

Before that, I’d like to introduce the models to you. 

Ok.. I didnt do the standard interview like how the press used to interview me because I’m famous and all (hahahaa….) but instead, I tried to get to know the real them. How they are when not in front of the camera. Now thats really hard for someone shy and modest but handsome like me but yeah.. someone’s gotta do it right?

 

Anyway, we’ll start with the winner for Category A and Sony’s Most Photo Perfect.. Jennifer Pedersen.

Okay.. There’s no doubt she’s very pretty and photogenic but the thing is.. I find her very cute too. The way she carries herself. She’s very cheeky and playful. Very down to earth. I think, that was why the judges fell in love with her. Her character. In other words.. very funny yet when in front of the camera, she could pull off any look she wants. Superb.

 

Here’s some snaps of Jennifer that I took. Sure you all say nice.. 

Jen 2

Jen 4

 

I have plenty more nice shots but cannot laa show all right? Hehehe…

Okay.. 

Next one is.. Carol. The Category B winner. (Cat B is for contestant above 30yrs old)

 

Carol is a yoga instructor and my..my.. She’s 38 but she looks like she’s 28. She’s soooo nice in person. In fact, too nice. You can never hear her talk bad about anything. Always smiling and cheerful. I think her 2 kids would be very proud of their Hot Mama.. Wohooo….

_DSC7374-1

carol 2

 

And last but not least, it’s Eclipse’s Most Elegant and Andrew’s Models Most Promising Catwalk winner… Juanita.

Who happen to also be Malaysia’s Dreamgirl 2 winner.

This lady here is a no nonsense type of girl. She likes to get things done properly and she’s very competitive. Very serious with her work and she pulled off some high fashion super model kinda pose. She’ll make it big as a model.

“Ey Juanita.. when you’re in Milan or Paris or New York shooting.. dont forget me yaa.. ”

_DSC7358-1

Juan-1

 

Fusshhh… 

The thing is.. these ladies here.. they’re all very nice people. Nice people with good looks. Just like me except I’m the male version laa.. hahaha.. 

Me and the models

This picture was taken by Helen Pedersen. Jennifer’s mom. She’s also very terrer with the camera. 

So..? Whaddaya think? Nice right..? 

The models.. the location.. the images.. the photographer.. all very nice rite..

Aww.. gee.. Ok..ok.. enough compliments please.. I’m blushing already.. Hahahahaa…

Well.. thats it lah folks.. I have more but I need to sleep and go to work tomorrow. 

Will story somemore next time yee.. 

But as usual, before I end my very smart story.. I’d like to show you 1 of my fave picture during the trip.

Very niceeeee… 

Enjoy and have a good nite.. Oh.. and if you’re at work.. dont sleep lah.. hehehe..

Ciao Peeps..
