We often obsess over photographic gear. Much as with luxury watches and automobiles, our attraction to photographic gear goes far beyond the objective appreciation of mere tools.

But the truth is that bad choices can, and often do, make us miserable. Not to mention broke.

Photography is a creative pursuit that requires a subtle bond between our right and left brains and purchasing gear following blind faith in brand marketing or forum fan wars can greatly detract from the enjoyment of this hobby and hinder our progression to higher levels of mastery.

In this 90 minute webinar, we describe a simple 5-step methodology aimed at helping you understand:

• your needs and preferences as a photographer as well as
• the important characteristics of gear that will have an impact on your output.

No rocket science, no fancy claims. Just a solid conversation between two very experienced photographers wanting to help others achieve success. Plus shared images and a good deal of insight.

Two sessions are planned to offer a convenient viewing time whatever your timezone and a replay will be available should you be unable to attend in person on one of these dates.

We think you should be there.



About Ming

Ming Thein usually doesn’t need an introduction … Still, here are a few lines from his personal bio:

I am a commercial photographer specialising in product photography on location and corporate reportage. Lately, I’ve also served as creative consultant and director to ensure a consistent visual look and feel across all aspects of a campaign, including video/ commercials, printed materials and exhibitions – right down to lighting design. It’s no longer just about the visuals: it’s about the experience and the emotion, too.

I have a diverse international client base including Nissan, Chun Wo Engineering and Construction, Jaeger Le-Coultre, Van Cleef & Arpels, Maitres du Temps, Richemont, the Swatch Group, Hijjas Kasturi Architects, Tange Associates Architects, Sunway Group, Maybank, Eastern & Oriental, The Boston Consulting Group, several Michelin star chefs including Fergus Henderson and Bruno Menard, The City of London and Moon Travel Guides. I also maintain an extensive library of over 250,000 high-resolution images available to license, both directly and via Getty Images. For 5 years, I was Contributing Editor to CLICK! Magazine, Malaysia and Editor for 2010. I have been appointed a Hasselblad Global Ambassador for 2016 and am also a Nikon Professional Services member in the UK and consultant to Carl Zeiss AG.

To me, Ming is one of the very rare individuals on the surface of this earth who combine a thorough and analytic approach with real artistry. His website is one of the most informative and pleasant to read you can find anywhere and Ming’s experience with photographic gear is encyclopedic.
