Year 2010 New Year’s Resolution

In year 2009, I have manage to reduce half of my wedding assignment compare to previous year and fulfill my dreams of winter prewedding shooting and overseas prewedding assignment in Indonesia,Australia, UK, France and Greece. I will post my overall for year 2009 probably in late Jan 2010 after I conclude all items. So for now, lets work on my new year , 2010 resolution.

With recent “almost” car accident and the things that I go thru and happening around me in year 2009, I think a lot about what I want in my future life. Life is short, I dont want to feel regret when I was 80 years old and blaming myself what I have not done and what I have done wrong. So, I make a few decisions during my recent trip in Seoul.

After I tender my resignation to Exes Studio and TPG (The Professional Gallery) few days back, I will be targeting 24 wedding assignments in year 2010 which is half of this year and quarter of my year 2007 jobs. Reason being, there are much more things for me to focus on and I wanna focus on quality rather than quantity for my wedding assignments. It is the passion that I have.

For year 2010, 5 main things I must achieve :

  • Spend more time with my kiddo during weekend.
    They are growing up fast. While I can still carry them and hug them in my arm, I wont wanna miss the time spending with them.
  • Clear out all my credit card and personal loan debt
    yeah, i know, spending too much on my photography gear. time to put a stop. No more new purchase unless necessary. I mean it.
  • Time for Further Improvement in Photography Skill
    Strengthen my own style and skill. Hunger for more! photography is so interesting that the more you shoot, the more you wanna to learn. It is a huge space out there for us to explore.
  • A Real Vacation for myself
    let me see, Tibet, mt bromo, hokkaido, taiwan, 九寨沟 (Jiuzhai Valley)… too many places.. must get there before I am too old to walk around..
  • Live a Healthy Life Style
    and to reduce my tummy size hahahahaha, nothing more important than staying healthy to carry out all the above 5 wishes list

    Great news, Edwin. I think I should focus 2010 on myself, too. Have been neglecting health, family, finances, etc.

    As long as you’re not announcing that you want to stop photography, I’m always your supporter!!!

    Happy New Year.

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 ...
