Miss South East Asia Tourism Ambassadress, or just MSEATA in short, is part of Miss Tourism International. We have worked with the organiser a couple of times and it is a pleasure to be working with a professional organisation.
This time around we have about 17 delegates from 9 different countries, namely Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and our host country Malaysia.
Our responsibility as an official photography studio is to produce delegates’ profile images as well as a series of photo documentaries of their tour in Malaysia.
My favourite part of this prestigious assignment is photographing each delegate’s national costume. Most of the costumes are finely detailed and comes along with a head gear that looks absolutely stunning.
At times I wished to photograph them in a fashion spread style but we are always pressed for time. Maybe better luck next time.
