I have received kind words on our photographs and lookbook. Thank you for loving what you saw on Lapinpin’s page.
While we expressed ourselves through designs, colours and fabrics, this man, he told our story through clicks on his camera.
Brian and us, at Lapinpin are similar in some ways. We were both particular. We were particular about each piece of design, from the buttons right down to its finishing – which is why Lapinpin always finishes each piece with french seams, not overlocking. Brian was particular from the film he uses, right down to the type of paper he prints his images on. We do not usually like to compromise.
Brian is the man behind Lapinpin’s campaign and lookbook photographs. Thank you Brian, for capturing our story on your film.
If you do not already know Brian, this is a little write up about him:
“Brian, filmmaker and resident photographer at thegaleria specialises in wedding photography taken exclusively in available light. Much of Brian’s works have been inspired by cinema works of famous directors like Giuseppe Tornatore, Mira Nair and Wong Kar-Wai. Brian’s unique style of cinematic-inspired photography has brought him to weddings at different corners of the world, documenting diverse wedding cultures of people from different walks of life.
In his own words, “I usually have a story blue-print in my head before every wedding. It’s a question of translating them into real imagery”
Brian prefers the analog film medium over the more prevalent digital photography, hardly surprising since much of his works are influenced by cinema and films.
On other days, Brian enjoys documenting culture and human life around the world in a medium he is most familiar with – photographs. Most of his personal works are in black & white, a medium that he has grown to love over the years.
His works have won numerous awards and have been featured on several magazines and publications throughout the world.
Brian is currently the silver medalist for Photographer of The Year 2010 award for the Artistic Guild of Wedding Photo Journalist Association (AG|WPJA). Brian has also been named the Top 30 Wedding Photographers in Asia by SignatureWeddings.
Filmography: 租来的幸福 MV (2010) – Cinematographer The Passing (2010) – Producer, Director of Photography, Editor.”
