From time to time, I would scour through my old collections of photographs and simply reminisce about my previous shoots.
This was sometime in the summer last year with model Jessica B. and makeup artist Sarah Dean. I had the wonderful assistance from Mike Polce during the shoot. I would like to do some more shoots in a sandy area with a “desert scape” feel. Can’t wait for it to be warmer to do outdoor shoots again!
From a shoot I did with Jessica Benson awhile back. Our MUA was Fizza Hussein Qadri.
I wanted to do something different this time with Jessica. “Obsession” was a theme I’ve wanted to do. It’s when someone cannot keep out another person from his or her mind, the thought of such person permeates every breath and every beating of that person’s heart. The more someone resist, the more that thought invades.
I was thinkin about her, thinkin about me / Think about us, what we gonna be? / Open my eyes; it was only just a dream.
- “Just A Dream” by Nelly
This song was playing on my ITunes while retouching this series. I thought it matched well with the photo set!
I am eagerly awaiting all the swimsuit magazine issues coming out next month. And I can’t wait for it to get warmer to start doing swimsuit shoots again.
Here are some photos from my swimwear shoots last year. Keep an eye out for my upcoming swimwear shoots this spring!

On a side note, it is one of my goals to become a S.I. Swimsuit or Victoria’s Secret Swimwear photographer. Wish me luck! Practice makes perfect, right?
I love working with model Jessica Benson so much that I invited her again for another shoot within one month from our last shoot. This time we went for the monokini concept. My beloved MUA Sarah Dean was there to do Jessica’s make up again. My photography assistant Mike Polce was there to help and I had additional help from Mike Chua and Sage Tang for lighting assistance.
