Our first client of the year was shopkaizo and I must say it was a joy working with these two pretty girls. Although onlineshop photography was not our first choice, being able to change the stereotype of blogshop photography feels great. Often you've seen those BS lookbooks & editorials, some looked great while some were terrible. That being said, we intend to make more blogsjops to have better editorials and lookbooks to show for their customers because I believe that good sales also starts from the first impression. Everyone wants to see how the outfits will look like with good photography (there is no less prideful way to say this). But I don't think we're at our best yet, so we really want to practice more. Spread the shameless words and let us know if you're interested in hiring us XD.

Disclaimer: It is not in my intention to offend anyone or to harm the reputation of good & humble photographers. We definitely need more work but I don't believe we have no standards.

Yay! It's been awhile but I've been really busy from work. I'm doing a little photography now with my parter Nicole under the pseudonym juxju+nicolengaise, basically just our insta names except I eliminated my "_". This was the first photoshoot I've done by myself with the help of my partner. The rest of the photography we did are often done together with either one camera with different lenses or two cameras. We do everything together from taking snaps, choosing the best shots, post processing and looking out for clients. So far we have done one commissioned work and we absolutely loved it! Will post more on that soon.

Tokyo Day 4: Shibuya & Harajuku

A place I've always dreamed of coming, Harajuku and Shibuya. Though I was quite sad that I didn't get to walk through ALL the streets, I was glad that I even had the opportunity to come here. I visited many shops that I've religiously followed virtually and got to see them in real life, though I didn't buy a lot. What intrigued me was the fact that their menswear selection is so wide, that is if you like their style. No wonder Japanese youths are much more fashionable compared to guys in Malaysia and Singapore. People here are very free spirited. I saw many subcultures appearing on the streets such as lolitas, punks, dolly-kei, and shops that exclusively sells decora, visual-kei, and many more. The shop staffs here are extremely polite and helpful. Even though I don't fully understand Japanese, I know a little here and there and I could get the gist of what they're saying if the don't talk as fast as the bullet train. God forbade me to stay here longer so today is my last day and I'm crying internally. I will come back here again, hopefully next year???

Another short post! Yesterday we went for a full day tour around the city of Tokyo, visiting the most prominent areas. We went to Meiji Shrine and Imperial Garden in the morning. It was extremely freezing because it drizzled a little here and there. The place we dropped off as our last destination was Akihabara area, which is the land of the otaku (manga/anime/games/electronic nerds/followers/obsessors).
