Welcome to the blog of JAN SHIM PHOTOGRAPHY

Photographed at Pondok 6, Bukit Shahbandar

I am Jan Shim — professional photographer located in Seria, Brunei Darussalam. I am as passionate and committed to my work as I am to fitness through hiking and badminton. This blog showcases a mix of the work I’ve done for clients, and Bukit Shahbandar where I frequently hike with friends or trail run solo. My photography portfolio comprises food (restaurant and cafe menu), hotels and serviced residence, landscape, magazine editorials, industrial equipment, tourism and corporate events — local and overseas assignments except weddings. More images can be seen on Instagram.

In between juggling photography assignments and parenting, I had a short 6 months stint in journalism with The Brunei Times during which time also the paper featured me for their Personality of the Week column.

    1. As a result of corrupted codes, the Contact page was inaccessible. Good thing the client found an alternative page to leave a comment and all went well. A screen capture of the final layout can be seen in this post. Compared to the original image, I think you’ll agree that the end result appears somewhat underwhelmed.


  3. I discovered your blog site on google and checked a few of your early posts. Continue to keep up the very good site/blog.


  4. Wow, amazing blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is excellent, as well as the content!


    1. Ayyaz,

      I clicked your link to take at look at how a fellow WP author may have used the Enterprise Theme and was surprised by the limbosoul.wordpress.com is no longer available. flag. If you have accidentally or intentionally deleted your blog, you should know that the action is irreversible. All customizations applied to this blog (a CSS subscription is required) are discussed and documented in the following link:


      If you have any questions about CSS customizations, I’m sure you can figure out who in the discussion are the most knowledgeable. Being programming illiterate I surprised myself at the extend I was able to understand and carried out the modifications. Wish you all the best!


  5. I got teary eyed while reading the article above. Family first inspiration in a world that sometimes can become hectic with the fast pace of being number one, popular and making money by means detriment to those around.

    I love photography and will be back.


    1. Most if not all comments that I’ve received in the context of “I’ll be back” have turned out to be spam. You’re a distinct exception that I have come to appreciate and I’m thankful for every one of your comments you posted since.
