Hello and good day!
On the 8th of February in 2015, Japase(M) was appointed as the official photographer for the traditionally held International School Athletics Kuala Lumpur(ISAKL) was held.
Japase(M) has been taking photographs for various events such as sports tournament and musicals.
Upon recognizing the track record in photography, Mutiara International Grammar School (MIGS) which was the host for ISAKL has requested Japase(M) to take photos for the event. This is an honour for us and we thank you!
In the early morning of the tournament day while it was still dark, we headed to the stadium feeling a bit nervous being that this was the first time shooting an International School Athletics Tournament. The stadium’s location is in University Malaya, a very famous University in Kuala Lumpur with many histories.
After reaching the field, my nerve felt at ease when the teachers from Mutiara International Grammar School greeted and talk kindly and friendly with us. If the photographer gets nervous, the students may also be affected, therefore I was relieved.
After speaking to various teachers I did not feel nervous anymore and was ready to start take photos!
There was variety of competitions i.e. track field 50M, 100M, 200M, 400M, 800M, 1500M, 4 × 100M relay, long jump, high jump, triple jump, shot put, discus, javelin, etc.
It really was a traditional and full scale track field tournament.
The award categories was divided into Under9, Under11, Under13, Under15 and Over 15 years of age.
This year, Mutiara International Grammar School won as champion based on total points.
Although I was nervous in photo shooting the full-fledged field tournament, I have successfully completed the photo shoot as planned! Also we were able to shoot a lot of smiles this time.
To the teachers of the participating schools, and students who gave me their smile, I thank you very much!
Also if there is another chance in the future, please do call Japase, at any time!
