Welcome to Raymond Lee's Photography Blog ....
Just to share a few shots taken recently when i was in Pavilion KL ..... for the Desigual Fashion Show. not knowing much about the brand few years back other than knowing there are from Barcelona - Spain. alright .... for friends who love colorful Tee or shirts or dress .... this is the one brand you should look into.
This is the information i got from their online site :
Desigual it’s not the same. The brand’s slogan since 1984 is the best description of the spirit of its collections. Fun, irreverent, fresh, colourful clothes and accessories that transmit optimism and
passion for life. The design and decoration of the stores are really exciting, involving the customer in an atypical shopping experience, with constant new features. From the brand’s designs created in collaboration with the French fashion designer Monsieur Lacroix exclusively for Desigual to the Desigual collection inspired by Cirque Du Soleil, the result of bringing together the worlds of art and showbusiness, including the bold new collection of shoes, the DESIGUAL movement never stops. The values governing DESIGUAL’s actions are a perfect summary of the spirit of the brand: positivism, excitement, connection, joy, unconventional spirit, lack of inhibitions... because DESIGUAL, it’s not the same.

Its been a while didn't update The Blog here so i thought may be good to take this opportunity to introduce our New Portraiture Style Call "Everlasting Vintage Theme" inspired by my most admired Fashion Photographer Emily Soto from USA. from the list of photos showcase here i would like to say Special Thanks to Studio 31, Tech Garage, MUA : Joy Chong Hairstylist: Belle Leong
Sponsor: Rara Black, Vin's Restaurant and Bar KL, Emily Soto, Models and friends for making all these happen. This is just the beginning and will try my best to keep this updated always .
Just a short note here about myself and how I got into photography work .... Yes way back in 2009 when I got myself a Lumix LX3 and that was how it all started. I have no idea what is DSLR, dont know all those Aperture ISO Shutter Speed ... Which lens to use ? How to use flash etc .. With the help of online study, buy enough magazines as reference and most important learn a lot of tips from FB friends here.
From shooting Jpeg to mostly Raw now i find that photography is a never ending story or i should say we are able to learn all kind of new techniques everyday. In my short 3 years photography experience, my only advice to all newcomers is to learn all about your camera well from A to Z at the same time do not forget to learn or ignore the Power of Photoshop .
I started with Landscape, macro photography etc and now I'm getting involve a lot more into Portrait and Event Job which is a totally new and challenging job for me. Thanks for all my clients and friends who has supported me all these years and hope we will move to the next level together.
Special Thanks to John, Esther, Cherrie and Reena for their beautiful Picture showcase here.
Yes .... beside seriously involved in Photography for the past 3 years, my other business is in T Shirts as a manufacturer and wholesale own Brand to the Malaysia Tourism Industry mainly distribute in Sabah Malaysia Borneo retail and hotel's outlet. That is why I always like to come out something with the combination of t shirt + photography. Hence, the Fototee is born.
I started this Photography Tee idea about a year ago in 2011 ... friends have been hearing about this over and over again but due to many reasons eg : design, fabric colour, artwork, label, printing and other plan, it has taken longer than i expected. But thank God it is finally out . For the first batch I have 10 Designs, 5 each in black and white. I used the highest quality of fabric 100% fully combed cotton fabric with nicely printed photography quotes design. After some researches were done, I found that most photographers preferred on these two colours. Therefore, I decided to kick start from here. I am taking this opportunity to thank all the friends that have given me the ideas and feedbacks since the first day.
So ... The Tee is now ready and we can view it online here. this is just the beginning of our long term plan to create something for the photographers' mind . What we need now is your continue support so that we can have more creative products ready for you in future.
