© 2011 Wazari Wazir | HaiQal Big Picture on Pos Malaysia Jinjang Wall
I just received an email from Mr Josh who work for with the agency in New Zealand that consulted on the POS Malaysia retail design project. I’ve already post this picture on my previous blog post in April but I just wanted to share it with you again and this time with an email that I received from the man who responsible to make this happen.
I’m not trying to brag here with my success but most importantly to inspire photographers out there, especially those of you who came to my blog frequently to believe in yourself, to always produce your best shot even though when taking your family picture, who have known someone might be interesting with your stuff.
As you can see, I did not take my son picture with the commercial purpose in mind but I just photograph him the way I wanted to photograph him, from the perspective of a father and I’m glad that someone out there appreciate what I do and personally contacted me to get things done.
I guess I should keep this post simple because I’ve already written this stuff before, so here, I just wanted to share with you an email that I received from Mr Josh who responsible to make my son picture adorned the wall of Pos Malaysia, this is truly a Wall picture, not a Facebook wall picture.
This is the email :
My name is Josh, and I worked at the agency in New Zealand that consulted on the POS Malaysia retail design project.
I saw the article you wrote about going to the post office and seeing the picture of HaiQal for the first time – it looks great, I’m really happy to see that it turned out so well!
Anyway, I just wanted to say ‘hi’, and thanks for letting us use the photo! We spent about two weeks searching the internet for appropriate photos. There were hundreds of cut-outs all over the studio floor. We started at the big libraries (Getty, etc), but soon realised that the best thing for POS Malaysia was to have local photography in the stores. You take exceptional portraits with a great sense of tone and colour grade. They are alive, passionate, and captivating. It was clearly going to be the winning photo! It’s a strange world we live in – I had that photo as a large print on my wall while I was working on the design.
Thanks for generously sharing your photographic resources, skills and tips on the web too.
I hope everything is well for you and your family in Kuala Lumpur.
