STANDARD CHARTERED BANK PRESS RELEASE in the Borneo Bulletin on October 2, 2009

In the past 3 days, I’ve managed to rack up some serious numbers from a photography assignment with CheezBox Cafe & Restaurant: 7.5 hours of driving in total, 3 stops to refuel, over 3,200 sRAW1 images  resulting in a whopping 45GB of storage (my 5DII’s image counter rolled over 9,999). Yep, as incredible as that may sound, you have to see to believe!  While I’m on the subject of stats, I also believe this is the highest number of images I’ve ever singled-handedly produced in a single assignment overwhelming even that of weddings and corporates event to date.

At the end of Day 1, I received a follow-up email from Standard Chartered Bank confirming me as a judge for their upcoming photo competition, a role I had gladly accepted when we first made contact by phone. Competition closes 5 pm on September 30, 2009. If you haven’t submitted there’s still time, your chance of winning is just an E-mail away! I don’t know what it feels like to win an EOS SLR camera as I’ve had to buy mine. Don’t forget to tell me all about it when you walk away with the incredible prizes sponsored by Canon I look forward to seeing all your entries! 🙂

  1. Hi Jan,

    The rules and regulation do not state that the competition is restricted to Brunei. It is open to the world or at least to your friendly neighbor, Singapore 🙂



    1. Very likely a typo on their part. Thanks for noticing that. It’s now corrected. Imagine the sheer excitement and ensuing responses had the three zeros been omitted. There would surely be a lot of entries all scrambling for a chance to own an EOS “1D” 🙂


Be real. Let me know what you think ...
