R.I.P Dear Bryan Ah

I'm dedicating this blogpost to a friend of mine that has left us to be with the Lord almighty.

It was really shocking to hear the sudden departure of a dear photographer friend of mine, Bryan Ah whom I briefly met and worked with last year during my god brother, Jason's birthday party.  A very friendly guy, unlike most photographers that I've met - Bryan was really passionate about his hobby, but i didn't expect to the extend of putting his own life in danger.

When I first saw statuses on my news feed from all my friends stating "R.I.P Bryan Ah", I couldn't believe what i saw because last he updated his instagram he was on a trip to Sabah.
True enough when i saw Bryan's Facebook it was spammed with condolences and well wishes from all his friends and family. Caused of death was still unknown.

Until today the article came out on oriental daily : http://www.orientaldaily.com.my/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=37186%3A&Itemid=114  

(吉隆坡1日讯)一名业余摄影师与数名发烧友在工业区內拍摄,为了捕捉更完美的角度,他倒退时不小心掉进20尺深的渠道里溺毙。

这起意外于週日(30日)早上9时许,在巴生港口的工业区发生。这名摄影师吕庆忠(36岁)受邀于摄影发烧友,与数名模特儿一起到无人的工业区內进行人物拍摄。

根据弟弟吕庆华(32岁,室內设计师)表示,有关渠道120公分长、200公分宽,约一个人的长度,內有20公尺深的积水,渠道內又脏又黑。

死者不諳水性

「当时,有两名摄影师正在为一名女模特儿拍摄,当中包括哥哥。他正捕捉一名模特儿的神韵,不自觉的往后退,结果不小心连人带相机掉进渠道內。」

「没有人注意到哥哥头部是否受创,却听到一声巨响,大家都跑前去救他。我哥哥是不諳水性的人。」

根据当时在场的摄影师在网上透露,很快的,在场的人便不见庆忠的踪影,有人尝试用木棍把死者救起,却发现渠道內深不可测,连木棍也无法著地。

当场也有人跳下水里欲救庆忠,也徒劳无功。唯召警方及消拯人员援助。

消拯人员赶抵现场,耗费2句钟把水抽干,才从底部发现庆忠的遗体。庆忠被救起时,已証实死亡。

遗体送往巴生医院太平间解剖后,証实庆忠的死因是溺毙。警方立刻联络远在居鑾的家人,弟弟立刻从居鑾赶到现场了解情况,並为哥哥办理领遗体手续。庆忠的遗体于今日送返回居鑾老家设灵,多达20余名摄影师从吉隆坡南下居鑾凭弔。

热衷拍摄个人专辑及婚照

业余摄影师溺毙的事件迅速传遍摄影界的发烧友,许多与吕庆忠相熟的人都感到惊讶,而且感到非常婉惜。

弟弟吕庆华说,庆忠与他从小便有艺术细胞,喜欢创造美感和捕捉美丽的事物。两年前哥哥受到朋友的影响,开始热忱于拍摄。

他说,生前单身的庆忠除了从事科技程序员之余,他的爱好便是摄影。

从吕庆忠所留下的遗作来看,他曾经到过海边拍摄少女专辑,也到过汽车展览馆拍香车美人,更在选美会里把每个佳丽都拍得个性十足。

由于庆忠的审美观比別人优越,不少志同道合的人都邀他一起出席大小活动,所拍下的照片,他都放在「面子书」专页供人分享。

他也因此受一些即將结婚的新人,邀请拍婚纱照或个人专辑。

拍照安全最重要

这次意外,彷如唤醒喜爱拍照的摄影发烧友,在忘我的境界里,也必须注意自身安全,以免白白丟失性命。

在电话里头,弟弟多次无奈地说:「这真的是很意外、很意外,我们都无法接受这个事实。」

Though I can't read Chinese at least with google translation, I know briefly what happened.
This was seriously unexpected, my deepest condolences goes to his family.

What a way to start a new year, with a loss of a friend :-(
I know many people come and go in our lives, but do stop awhile to cherish the friendship..even if it is for a brief moment. You will never know what they mean to you until you loose them unexpectedly.

The photoshoot we did last year. Full album here :



Rest in Peace Bryan. At least you are finally living in Eternal Paradise :')
God Bless.




XOXO,
Arisa♥
