Red Bull Rookies Photoshoot for FHM Malaysia

So a while back I got an awesome phone call saying that I’d be shooting the Red Bull Rookies for FHM Malaysia!

Red Bull is very active in community events and various activities and the next female driver search is on, so do check them out at

As you’ve seen in my previous post – the pics were featured in a 3 page spread in the August edition of FHM.

So say hello to the lovely Red Bull Rookies.

From left to right Leona Chin, Puteri Ayu Jasmin, Norlina Johor & Baizura Ruslan.

It was a fun shoot, all done on location in Sunway, some in a car tuning shop and some at a grimy old workshop. All strobist style with portable speedlights and some gels thrown in for good measure. These were shot out the back of the workshop as the sun was going down.

For ladies that can seriously drive, they are a good looking bunch eh? This set was shot inside the workshop.

So what do you think? FHM-ish enough? Remember it’s for FHM Malaysia…not Singapore or Thailand or Indonesia 😉

    The flowing hairs does bring out the FHM-ish feel to the photos. I’ll say they pass.

    My only complaint is the bluish side lighting for the indoor shots. Looks weird… but maybe it’ll fly on prints.

    Great photos as usual ST. I understand that these are female drivers and not models so the FHM Malaysia limitations are still alright. Girls who drift. I like. 🙂

    Azmeen: Thanks, something different I think – I like the blue gives it a bit of an edge. Looks good in print IMHO. Flickr tends to oversharpen pics a bit.

    joshuaongys: Be kind, be kind.

    Brenda: Not sure if that’s good or not.

    Huai Bin: Thanks boss, yeah girls who drift big respect to that 🙂
