This is where it all started. At that time I was a 3D animation and VFX artist. Bought my first camera and officially enter the world of photography and videography when I started my company; 28Spin, back in 2010.
I was taking all of the product shots for the store as well as the content creator and event videographer for all videography in 28spin Youtube channel here.
28Spin is an online professional yo-yo store that sells professional yo-yos and return tops (in canada) from all around the world. It’s a little side hustle of ours that started small and took off in a short period of time.
We are also the ones behind the scene of the yo-yoing community and organising events for the Malaysian National Yo-yo Championships league table. Our store have all brands of yo-yo from all around the world. We were the Malaysian distributor for 3 major yo-yo-yo brands in the world; YoyoFactory, YoYoJam and C3yoyodesign.
Here are some curated product photos that I took during my service at 28Spin. These product photos are used in all of our web banners, socials, e-commerce store and blog write ups.
It was a great experience running 28Spin. I’ve grown in many aspects of skills when running my own business; from photography, videography, competitive yo-yoing, performance, marketing, sales, event organisation, blog write ups, ,customer service, physical store to community yo-yo workshops.
I’ve now left the company to pursue my passions.
