When it comes to photography, making a stylish picture requires more than just cool clothes. Eng Bunkim, a 22-year-old photographer for IDEA LAOR, explained her theory of making people look fashionable in photographs.
“The customer will have captured unforgetable moments within our photos,” said Bunkim.
Bunkim said her company always delivers something cool and creative for their customers.
“Our shooting style is fashion funny. We try to be creative in setting up the scene with natural light while letting the customers do something funny with the fashion style and colour.”
She added that it is important to let their clients behave naturally.
“We are not asking our customers to act. We always just let them be themselves and do what they want. Then we, as photographers, try our best to capture their natural activities.”
Bunkim also said that colour is important to her theory of photography.
“Our concept is making colourful photos for our customers,” said Bunkim. “We ask them about their favourite colour and incorporate it into the photo.”
While striving to be unique, Bunkim said she also tries to keep the pictures simple.
“Other agencies may think our photos are simple and not really professional, but we don’t care much. What we care about is just making clear that our team can capture and bring out the happiness in our customers.”
In order to get the best photos, the whole team needs to make the customers confident and believe in themselves, as well as believe in the cameraman.
“Some customers, they are not really confident about their appearance so they will not look natural in the photo. So what we always try to do is bring out their confidence and let them enjoy themselves, as well as express their own thoughts. Then we will able to get the best shots of them in our photos.”
For the future, the team plans to expand their business by shooting landscape photos with only sunset and sunrise light.
“Nowadays we can sell some of our landscape photos, but we will try to sell more and more.”
