One of my favourite shot. With eye-contact and posture captured at the right time =)

What do you think about the pictures taken? I personally feel that the male models tends to act cool more than they smile. Whereas the female models will smile and acting cool too. There were tons of photographer that night and definitely there's not enough space for everyone of us. Therefore I've decided to choose the catwalk sideways and utilize the location as much as possible. Thanks to all models to look into the camera as eye contact is really a magical thing that add extra marks to the pictures.

If I somehow blocked/photobomb the photographer on the other side of the catwalk, sorry about that ya. Tried my best avoiding it as I also understand that kind of feeling where people blocking the view especially with the big ass flash gun haha.

PS: Since I took so much photos during the grand launch, the post will be separated to two post just to ease your bandwidth =) The pictures will be uploaded to my fanpage - TianChad @ 永遇乐 as well! The next post will have more catwalk photos and the people who make ACA another success. I have a few funny pictures of catwalk guru Benjamin Toong during Amber Chia 30th birthday session so stay tune on my next post!

This entire celebration is made possible by the generous sponsorship pf Senheng Electric, Samsung Malaysia, Pensonic, 3M (Pana G Sdn. Bhd.) Malaysia, Biosis, Prosense, Kronenbourg 1664, Spritzer, Secret recipe, and S2 Slimming.
