Fortune favours the prepared. I was prepared and I was fortunate and thanks to Tourism Malaysia Brunei Mega Fam Trip invitation, I had an opportunity to shoot the CIMB Malaysian Open Squash Championships 2010 at The Curve in Mutiara Damansara. This is the first time I shot a live squash tournament and little did I know before that media personnel had access to clear glass hole that puts the photographer/videographer right in the heart of the action. Check out the pictures below where I managed to catch the high speed ball coming towards the camera—can’t get anymore awesome than that—as I felt every single vibration from the ball hitting the wall. When I Tweeted this, I got asked if current world number one women’s squash Datuk Nicol David was playing. She wasn’t but instead, I photographed the Men’s champion, Malaysia’s own Mohd Azlan Iskandar who won his third CIMB Malaysian Open title.
