    Jetfynn

    This month, our featured photographer was chosen because of his years & years of experience in shooting weddings all over the country and is a role model to all PhotoMalaysia members

    Here is the interview with jetfynn. :


    1) Please tell us a little about yourself.

    I'm Min Ho, a full time photographer together with my lovely wife Anne who co-founded Jet Fynn Studio which is based in Ipoh. Perak. Incidently, Jet & Fynn actually are the names of our children.

    Our works can be found at:

    www.jetfynn.com
    www.jetfynn.blogspot.com

    2) What is your photography history?

    My entry into photography started from a compact camera given to me on my 12th birthday from a loving aunt. It became a great joy and found myself shooting a lot and made a lot of mistakes as well along the way. Boy, film was expensive to a small boy then and every roll shot means expenditure. Managed to pester one of my uncles to get me my first SLR in 1982 and suddenly found myself to be the "official" photographer for the entire family!

    Other people started to take notice and became appointed as the official school photographer 1983-1987. Had my first wedding photography experience for a relative in 1982 for an ang pow and had my first paid wedding assignment in 1984. Continued doing weddings from word of mouth referrals alone after that.

    Set-up Jet Fynn in 1996 as a part-time business while working during the weekdays. Slowly and steadily gathering momentum until the digital age came in and we took the challenge to go full time after much influence and guidance by a fellow photographer friend and mentor who even sold me his studio equipments to help me set-up Jet Fynn professionally.

    Teaching photography at a college is considered as one of the proud achievements together with clients flying us overseas to cover their weddings as the other achievements including shooting for royalty which we are honoured to have as well.

    Do you know that I have shot 2 generations of weddings? The parents as well as their children wedding

    3) What is your style? What makes you different from the other wedding photographer?

    Photography styles is rather fluid as there are many elements and influences from a lot of masters which I admire. Then again, in wedding photography, every event won't be the same and there's always something new happening. Creative juices flow at every event and we have to make use of every scene and available time to shoot and styles can change to suit the mood of the event.

    What makes me different?

    The main focus and theme will always be striving to capture the moments and the emotional content of the people involved in the wedding, be it the couple, relatives, friends and even the ambience of the event and link them together to record and convey the flow of a story + a personal touch to every finger and eye coordination at every click.

    In short, I would describe the concept as "The Art of Visual Storytelling" - Min Ho.

    4) Any advise for young and aspiring wedding photographers in PM.com?

    Amongst all the branches of photography, wedding photography is actually one of the easiest to enter BUT also the toughest to master as the conditions can and may change during the last minute or even within a few moments! The skills of a wedding photographer encompasses photojournalism, portraiture, fine art, landscape, sports and sometimes even architectural photography elements as well! Remember, there is very little or no room for error and the whole thing can't be repeated.

    A word of advice for aspiring wedding photographers would be:

    - Get yourself a mentor. Learn from him/her the ropes and don't belok-belok!
    - Learn the flow of a wedding first. (Different cultures have different styles of ceremonies and themes)
    - Then agree to be the back-up photographer or the second photographer before venturing out on a solo wedding assignment AFTER you have gained enough experience and confidence.
    - Don't be afraid to experiment. (A word of caution: Try not to do that if you are still not confident of your skills on a paid assignment at the expense of your paying couple as you can't afford a screw-up,right?)
    - Always have back-up, Back-up and BACK-UP on equipments, batteries, memory cards, etc, etc...

    In conclusion, I would like to quote from a very famous person, photography is like - " It's 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration".- Thomas Edison
