Tabi basa & greeting everyone! This time, I’d like to share about the recent outing that we did at Miri with the Seahorse boys. For those who didn’t know, Seahorse Boys is a group of photographers based in Miri from various background, as what you can see below. In short, most of us shoots portrait.
For this photoshoot, it was held at Kpg Wireless, at Miri Waterfront, where we did a photoshoot with talents, namely Leha from Tatau and Agnes, who was eventually called Seroja by us. The event organiser is Aiman Iman, who is a well-known make-up artist based in Miri, and he is known for his unique style of make-up, including body-painting.
The second venue of the photoshoot was at Miri City Fan, where Jay and the rest intends to re-create the images that was done by Cikgu Sean of Prodigy. Lots of attempts were being made.
Below is the result of the images that was shared to me for this blog post purpose. I only received from Steve for now. Therefore, here’s his artwork, followed by mine.

Lesson Learned from This Photoshoot
I’ve written about outing ethics in this long Facebook post, which is written in Malay. You can read it here. In summary,
- Respect One Another
- Feel Free To Use “Please”, “Thank You” and “Sorry”
- Do Not Touch Model / Talent
- Do Not Ask Sensitive Questions & Joke Responsibly
- Do Not Disturb Other People’s Gears / Settings Without Permission
- Do Not Brag About Gear
- Be Punctual & Give Model Time To Rest
In writing those ethics, I have no ill-intention against anyone, because it is a set of thing that every photographer should try to obey and adhere to if they want to be a likeable photographer in whatever occasion that they use.
Gears used in this photoshoot is Leica S3 & Summarit-S f/2.5 35mm & Summicron-S f/2 100m, both ASPH. lenses. It is a really great set of gear, the colour reproduction is great. You get what you invest.
But for the next shoot, I challenged myself to use a different gear, which is a compact camera, a well-known street photography camera called Ricoh GR III. I will show it in my next blogpost.
In the meantime, stay safe & take care!
Your Tukang Rantek, Claudius
