Recently I have been engaged in a few photoshoots – for magazines as well as for professional photographers’ portfolios – and as a result have had more make-up on my face in the last week than I probably ever had for the whole of last year. Those who know me well would know that I don’t know how to put make-up and am very comfortable going out of the house with nothing on my face except some moisturiser and sunblock.
One of the photoshoots I had last week was with professional photographer Ivan Joshua Loh of Pigs Can Fly Photography who has a series named Calling The Shots where he profiles interesting people and prominent personalities across different industries (sports, entertainment, media etc.). He approached me last year to profile me but I took my time to consider because it was a concept that is atypical of me.
I finally mustered up the confidence and courage, agreed to do it and here are the photos:
Calling The Shots

Attack of the 100-feet CHERYL
Inspiration for this shot was taken from this picture:
The Stig’s Girlfriend Revealed
These photos show a whole different angle of me, seldom (or almost never) unveiled before and I’m sorry if it shocked you even in the mildest manner. I can’t really recognise myself either, to be honest.
Some may like this look, some may not.. but to those who like it, sorry it’s not gonna be permanent because it is just not me!
I think I need a facial at Porcelain, The Face Spa soon, after all that make-up…
Thank you Ivan for this ‘rare’ opportunity and the privilege to be profiled by you!
