Joining Workshop/Conference

Recently I just enroll myself in two workshops/conference and glad that we have more and more similar activities in Malaysia….

Treasure Of Rainforests (12-15 June 2009)

The Workshop and Photo Challenge

Set on the edge of spectacular rainforests, the Hilton Batang Ai Longhouse Resort is Hilton’s only jungle property. Surrounded by indescribably beautiful rainforests by the Batang Ai Lake in Sarawak, the resort is just a 2-hour boat ride away from the famed Batang Ai National Park.

Explore the lush greenery, visit the neighbouring Iban longhouses and travel upriver in the same trail as Headhunters of yore in search of the elusive perfect picture – in this hidden paradise rich in culture, nature and adventure, you may just find it.

The first of its kind in Malaysia, “Treasures of The Rainforests” Photography Challenge & Conference 2009 invites you to join the search for the most inspiring image from the Batang Ai district.

Meet ten professional photographers in Malaysia – discuss and learn how to handle live, nature, wedding and portraiture shoots, join them on photography excursions to authentic Iban longhouses and nature hikes, share photography and learn the tricks of the trade.

Help in highlighting the wealth of diversity of Sarawak to the rest of the world, excite the imagination, and be a part of a series of national, regional and international showcases. Celebrate Sarawak’s culture, nature and adventure – and be in the running to win more than RM5,000 worth of prizes.

Who should come?

Hobbyists, Amateur Photographers, Freelance Photographer, Serious Hobbyists, Advance Amateur, Professional Photographers, Photographers or anyone who loves Photography

Shootfest 001 Wedding 6-7th June 2009

What on earth is an unconference? And what’s this ShootFest about?

These are most likely the first 2 questions on your mind. An unconference is an informal gathering of likeminded people with a common interest. It’s a participant-driven conference, meaning everyone must participate in some way or another. We encourage everyone to present a topic or engage in a discussion during the 2-day sessions.

Each ShootFest is a media unconference primarily for photographers and videographers. This first one that is organised is themed The Wedding and is meant for professionals, freelancers and anyone interested in wedding photography and videography.

The benefits of ShootFests are knowledge-sharing, networking and raising the bar for the industry. If you feel you don’t want to share any of your kung-fu, then the unconference is probably not for you. We want to breed improvement for everyone, and need you to share your thoughts too.

About Edwin Tan


Yes, this is a dream to me, I daydream a lot and let me share with you a few of my dreams here. I always dream of creating a website to record every moments of my life and share with my kiddo when their grow up one day and also dream about carrying my cameras and travel around the world, see the world thru my eye,yes, I love travel, it is my ultimate dream to travel around the world, learning thru travel is the best dream I ever have. Dream is an initial point to me. It help me to look at what I really want in my life. As Malaysia Wedding Photographer with international wedding photography membership (WPJA, AGWPJA, WPPI & PPA), I started my photography passion at the end of year 2007. Like most of the beginners, I was purely having fun with my DSLR capturing my family members portraits and events. After attend the talk by one of the master wedding photographer, it change my whole world. I was so touched by the slideshow shown on the projector for the showcase of prewedding and church wedding, the touching moments, the dramatic angles, all these impact was so strong that it hit direct into my heart and awake my passion towards wedding photography. From there onwards, I have focus all my passion on wedding photography and never feel more satisfied when I capture the moments for couple which last for a life time. Whenever I imagine the couple looking back those photos captured by me in ten, fifteen years from now and think, "yeah, that was the moments" "look, how silly you was!" "oh, I cried when I first saw you walks down the aisle i", "yes, I remember what your dad told me that day when he placed your hand in my right hand from his arm after walks down the aisle".. all these keep my heart warm and keep me going on & on for this long path without a single regret or tiredness ...
