-Love Or Dream

23/May/2012 | A Little More Personal, Everydays, Love-ing


1stly, i would love to thank all of you for being super super love and appreciating my work…

I would to show appreciation to those countless wishes and birthday greetings on varies social media platforms as well.

Also, my gratitude to my blogger friends, who know the effort i put in my photobook, they hype and share for me like mad!! super love!

As a blogger myself, i know the value of each single tweet, each share and link posted, i truly understand the worth of them more than anyone else. what these blogger friends did for me… super touching. Gonna name a few bloggers who heavily promoted my for me, like qiuqiu, xiaxue,  eric, miyake, rachell pxd and joyce lim! all were super nice, spam their timeline for me! wah~~ super touched.


<Summer love> did really got me loads of attention, my blog hit raised to 10k on the day upon release, and it remain high, at least 2 to 3 times more than my usual stats till now.

Of cos, those long ass emails, comments and wall posts, singing high praise of my 2nd photo book, freaking touching too.

I didn’t have the time to answer all of them, i shall answer here in bulk, the most asked questions:

-Yes, all the pictures were taken by myself, with tripod, timer, wireless remote control (if u re observant enough, u could actually spot the tiny black remote in my hand in some of the pics.)

-Yes, even the under water shot were taken myself, ok, here’s the trick, some DSLR have this speed burst function, when it’s activated, it will snap a 20 – 30 shots at one go, at very fast speed. i just gotta place my dslr (in waterproof casing) at the stairs of the swimming pool, facing to the angle i want it to capture, and when speed burst is activated, i will swim over or dive in. that’s how those under water shots were taken.

-Yes, you could post my pics on tumblr or on your website so long u credit me, that’s fine.

-I will blog about the things related to this photo book, like which contact lens i used, where exactly this photo book were taken at, i did some small cosmetic procedure before this shoot, fillers. and where i did my hair for this shoot as well.. so stay tune.



My birthday weekend was madness, had so much fun,  had the powerful blogger birthday party. lol, i had all my favorite bloggers at my party. i swear, if i go back to 6 years ago, when i just started blogging. and tell myself, that i will have xiaxue, kaykay, miyake, qiuqiu at my birthday party… well, even i will not believe myself.

i club continuously for 2 nights, i felt like i am 19 again. just that major difference is my energy level… i used to be much more energetic, now? it took me 2 days to “sleep off” the alcohol.


I was super hyper during that two nights, i think i met some readers in clubs, and they were shocked by my crazy behaviors! email and FS me, they remind me to be more compose and well-behave. lol…. i m getting old, gotta be childish as often as when i get a chance… before it’s all too late! lol. don’t worry for me, i just having my fun!

Anyway, i include this “thank you” blog post with a poll… i desperately wanna know from all of u, which photo book is your favorite?! Volume one or Volume two!?

Let me know pls! it’s super easy, just check the vote button at that poll i put up below, it will take u less than 15 secs. but if u re free…. u can comment on this blog post and tell me why! why did u pick volume one or volume two, you comments are greatly appreciated!


love you guys so much…

I cannot! Wa buay sai! Bu Ke Yi!

…But okay I guess I like Vol 1 a litttttttttle better than vol 2, cause I’ve nv been to Paris, and you made vol 1 really really dreamy & classy. City lights and all, you know the cold city guy feel? Me likey ^^

Tough fight, but vol 2 gets my love cause its filled with colours + I like how the photos flowed. Like from bright day light to sunset to indoors and out again. Max love the water pictures, how do you open your eyes in the water with contacts?!

Conclusion, aiya, I like both la. Don’t make me choose already. I will wilt. XD


yutakis | May 24, 2012

Hee Hee! Thanks for the enthu response! Me lovey enthu response! Lol… I think Paris is super effortless. The only difficulty I ever remember was carrying a lot of stuff when I travel from
City to city…. The rest, super slack… The summer love, I remember A LOT of horrible shits…. So as the author I prefer the summer a tiny bit. Lol!

setti | May 24, 2012

Well, I prefer the photoshoot of Paris because am French, and it reminds me my home town 🙁 miss it so much.
But my favorite pic is the one you smile on with the book on Summer Love Photobook. It’s soooooooooo adorable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And you don’t smile often so it kind of special ^^
Can’t believe it’s your last photobook, makes me sad … Anyway, am a huge fan of your work!!! JiaYou!

yutakis | May 24, 2012

I do love the Paris one as well, the hardwork I put in for the summer love… Made me love the summer a tiny bit more! ^^

Vanessa | May 24, 2012

I LOVE BOTHHHH!!! How to choose?!? duh~ both got the dreamy feel going on and I SUPPPEEERR DUUUPPPEERRR LOVE both!! HOW!?!? Okay *calms down* if I were to choose between both of them, I would say…….Summer Love? ’cause it’s more colourful and……there’s pictures of you smiling!! =D It’s so cute! *blush* HAHA! and best of all, I REALLY like the pictures with you swimming, floating & on the boat. LOVE MUCH! So yeah, I’ll choose Summer Love.

(p.s: Y U NO give us third option for both!? =P )

Jovyne | May 24, 2012

i agree it is super hard to decide which is better cos both are mad awesome! vol one’s great cos of the setting, paris is perfect cos its so dreamy and romantic. but vol two is awesome too cos of the hard work needed to do the shoot! i look at vol two and wonder how you managed to do it omgwtfbbq. and ofc the subject of the photos is just amazing la so nth to compare here between both vols. so its very hard to choose cos both are excellent in very different aspects! haha. just my two cents worth (: but damn you are super talented good job!!

Lucia | May 24, 2012

I like both, but I prefer Summer Love.

A dream in Paris is also good, but I think that you are the main character, so scenery doesn’t really matter (It’s just my opinion) .

So when I looked at all this photos again, I had a felling, that I like you more, when it’s Summer Love. It is ,of course, becouse of your smile. When I saw your smile , I just smiled back, and it was something about 3 times 🙂

And I really like this warm felling, so my vote goes to Summer Love 🙂

Winnyta | May 24, 2012

The first time i saw your website. i’m just like …. (꒪﹃ ꒪)
who the hell is this guy? since your face is like impossible to be describe as human. Too handsome!!! even more handsome than hero in TVSQ. Keep up yutakis! love to read your blog and about the photobook, both of them are awesome!! i was like …. ( ꒪﹃ ꒪) again when you wrote that you’re the one who took all of the photos. I like the first one because somehow you look more expressive and somehow each pictures has different expressions and atmosphere! keep up yutakis!! wish i can meet you one day and take a photo with you. Teheee

HitomiNeko | May 25, 2012

hihi~ yeah extremely difficult to choose from the two~ at the end I choose Vol 1 Paris~ cuz i guess I love architectures more then the ocean. I love them both of course! n i feel like taking pix in water n everything is so difficult so, yeah ~ it was a hard choice~

but yeah I would love to know more about what camera n remote control things you use. so often I find myself with horrible photos cuz the ppl around me can’t take photo! lol. sad! I await the blog post!!!

xoxo HitomiNeko xoxo

Reader | May 25, 2012

For vol 1- the scenery and photoshop is Fantastic! But u can easily tell which is self-shot or with a camera stand. so its not AS impressive.

However, Vol 2- is Wonderful!! Thats when people go how did u shoot such a scene! And you can tell the difficulty and hardwork level is at its maximum!

So i’ll go w Vol 2 though both are Hard work and Amazing!:)

*ps: u’re SO Generous and Nice to share w ur readers e tricks and tips! It meant alot! esp when u interact and respond to ur readers, very heart-warming and touch! 🙂
You are indeed a Talent!!

DAVID | May 25, 2012

Hey Yutaki !! 🙂

To be honest, I really love both volume 1 and 2. But my most favorite is Volume 2: Summer LOVE. You look so VOGUE and high fashion in that photo e-book! OMG! *vomits rainbows* hahaha. Of course I know you also put in lots of effort for the Paris photo e-book. 🙂

You are so awesome! Can you take me as your student please? hahaha. Your photography skills are just awesome! I will definitely continue to show you lots and lots of support and LOVE! You deserve all the LOVE from all your readers! I appreciate alot for your reply and you for giving your readers the BEST! You are THE BEST! <3

…..this is a hard choice, really!!

in the end.. I love the first volume, but I’m madly in love with the second volume!! XD

For some selfish reasons:
1. you smile a lot at volume 2!!!!! make me faint seriously LOLOL you should smile more ah yutaki!! you looks 100000x better if you smile! XD
2. the efforts you’re putting in the second volume is so admirable. you almost makes me believe that summer is really a lovely time. makes me forget about the super-high temperature and only thinks about the fun playing in the water.
3. super love the nature you pick!!! beautiful sunsets, beautiful sky and sea, beautiful island!! (although maybe at reality it’s like the island of those jurassic park times -____-“).. you also got bruises and scars while taking the pictures.. makes me loving more the second volume because of your efforts! great job!! *applause!*
4. the last selfish reason… I love your short hairs more than you with curly hairs.. haha XD looks more… simple? mature? well that kind of feeling (for me :D)

okay, enough for the spam already~ good luck for everything in the future!! 😀

Best wishes!
-Qian 🙂

I vote for Summer Love; felt you put in a lot more effort for this one. Here is an entry dedicated to you, my Camwhore King of the century!
Stay Cool!

Dear Yutaki

I am a Hong Kong reader and I enjoy seeing your photoes, I have chose Voloume 2 it is becox i love the cover picuture a lot with flowers around. I post your picture on my blog and I found the hit rate is as double as usual, credit to you!

wellcome to visit my blog to your see how i write about you ha ha at


ansoniashirley | June 21, 2012

I loved them both so it took me awhile to pick, photography is amazing!!! I loved the Paris one because I’ve never been there and loved how you captured the essence of it in the photographs. The summer one got my vote because I live in the valley of the sun and it’s always summer here 24/7 so I could relate more.

cindy | July 3, 2012

I am super amazed how you took those underwater picture BY YOURSELF?!
that looks incredibly hard even when you have photographer around!
so me voting summer vol 2!

this is the first time I visit your blog, honestly I am a bit taken back since you post sooo many pic of yourself (looks like a narcissist at first), but your picture book blown me away, your passion towards photography is inspiring!
