I finally upgraded my camera to the Sony A7II, and was so excited to test it out! So I called up my girlfriends to come work with me in the studio one night.  It's been awhile since I photographed, but getting back into photography is easy when you have a talented model + the best hair/makeup person in the industry helping you! :) I had a great time shooting/working with Renee and Gina for the first time! This was our impromptu idea at the end of the night that turned into one of my favorite series. Make sure to scroll all the way down and click on their names to check out their work!

Party of One

I had the pleasure of working with the beautiful, super talented and upbeat Char Baquiran! I loved working with her because she understands her body and how it moves and flows. It really makes life as a photographer a lot easier!  For this shoot, I wanted to keep it super light, happy and fun, so I called in some of my party friends - balloons and confetti - to set the mood and let Char work the space. 

Let's kick off the summer with a party!

I had the opportunity to work with these amazing, goofy, energetic and dope dancers on Feng's newest dance video! I haven't danced in awhile and I'm so grateful that Feng asked me to be apart of this project! It was SOO much fun being around these pros, who can pick up choreo in super speed! We literally learned this dance in two days and shot the dance right after the second practice. I'm not going to lie, I practiced a lot at home so I can look kinda decent next to these guys. :)

You seriously can't watch this video without smiling! But you gotta watch it all the way to the end. Enjoy!!!

You Better Run!

First off, I would like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to FENG!
His new dance video (that I got to be in) debuted today! 
After fighting for hours with YouTube and Warner music to allow the video to be uploaded for creative purposes, I think we have finally won and the video is now live for good. Yay!

If this video made you ready for the weekend, feel free to share it, like it and tweet it!

Happy 1 year!

July 4th was my one year anniversary with Los Angeles. Yup! I flew into LA on July 4th 2012, and started my adventures.. I wanted to tribute this post to reminiscing on all the fun things I've done so far.. It's crazy to even think that it's already been a year!

1/ Watching dance videos on YouTube was and still is a big part of my lifestyle. Back when I lived in HK and NY, my friends and I would "fan girl" over America's Best Dance Crew winners, and YouTube famous choreographers, and aspire to create something as great as them. Working with my good friend Jon and World of Dance gave me the most wonderful opportunity to be in the midst of the LA dance action! 

2/ Then not long after I moved to LA, I met this guy, who's changed my life for the better.

3/ I went home and danced in a commercial with my sister for Nikon! The camera crew set up loud speakers outside on the streets of HK and had me dance in public while it was raining! Erin got to hold a Nikon camera and pretend to videotape me dancing. Check it out here!

4/ Of course we can't forget Maddie joining the fam!! Such a cutie!!!!

5/ I taught two dance workshops back home. After being in LA for a few months, it was nice to finally be able to share my experiences with teens that are in my position when I was their age - watching YouTube videos and dreaming of that day to travel to LA and dance.

6/ One of my favorite things about being in LA - I got to tag along to photograph behind the scenes of this music video!.. Unfortunately I can't show more photos from this video shoot but lets just say it was awesome :)

7/ Friends visited and had a blast with dolphins.. I just had to include this in my recap! We went to the beach, not realizing it was going to be super overcast. We brought dolphins that we had won from the arcade the night before and jumped around in the sand.

8/ Enjoy the sunrises and sunsets... Coming from a polluted city like HK, you hardly see so many jaw-dropping sunsets. and every night, I get to look out my apartment window, breathe in the fresh air, and stare at that beauty. 

9/ I finally put up a dance video! But I haven't since... That'll be my next project. 

10/ Started my job at Sony Pictures selling movies globally.

11/ Traveling - even if it's just a quick drive to San Fran or San Diego. It's always nice to get away for a bit. :)

12/ Celebrated July 4th and my 1 year anniversary with LA on a Cruise in Boston with my parents and friends, and ended the night watching the fireworks.

Sometimes I look back and I think, wow I didn't do anything! But putting this post together really helped me put my year into perspective.

What have you been up to this year?
