Let me start off by saying that I am in no way linked with any violent organizations domestically or internationally. Just a guy blessed with the right name but in the wrong era. I think.
My name is Qaedi Shamsuddin (just call me Qaeds) and I am just a normal guy who loved photography as much as the next Joe (if not more!) and feels photography is my best way of exploring more with my life. And most importantly, preserving memories with my camera.
I train my lenses at unsuspecting victims at weddings and engagements and get scolded many time by ‘makciks’ and ‘pakciks’ just because I am really afraid to ask to photograph them LOL!. But many times over the pictures turn out nice and I am forgiven. That’s just how I roll when on assignment 😉
I shoot with any devices that can take images however on more serious occasions, I prefer my Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) cameras. I just like the workout of carrying heavy camera bodies and lenses because I loathed working out at the gym. Or anywhere else for that matter.
On assignment, I lug these deadweights:
- A couple of Canon EOS 5D (yes, THE Mark 1 because I can rock it)
- A bunch of lenses being EF 24-70 f2.8, EF 70-200 f2.8, EF 50 f1.4 (my favorite lens!
- A couple of 580EXs and Yong Nuos flash gun
Or if you wish to meet up in Klang Valley coffe shops, lets meet up for a chat. As long as the place serves Hazelnut White Coffee Ice. Nice!
