Makeover Magic by Shunji Matsuo

Celebrity hair stylist Shunji Matsuo and his hair salons under the Shunji Matsuo group need no introduction. On August 2017, we were invited to do a photoshoot for their Makeover Magic Fashion Show at Japan Beautiful Life - Singapore's first Japanese Lifestyle Expo.

Mr. Matsuo had always wanted to contribute back to the society. He felt that there is beauty in everyone and beauty knows no age and style. In 2011, he wanted to celebrate the beauty of aging for elderly women and women who are battling with cancer. He wanted them to feel confident again by creating exquisite looks that suit their style and have them sashay down the runway. That's how Makeover Magic came about and it became his life’s work. 

At the Japanese Lifestyle Expo event, we set up a photoshoot area behind the stage so that the models could have their portraitures taken. We decided that the photoshoot would simply be to bring out their natural selves. To our surprise, magic really existed in this event! Carefreeness and confidence were written all over these warriors' faces after the show. 

This meaningful event has inspired us as much as the late Mr. Matsuo has inspired many others to live their lives with positivity and happiness.

We hope you will enjoy the series of images below!

Do have a look at what went on behind the scenes!

Sky Grande Prix Triumph 2016

While celebrating the last day of the F1 race in Singapore, Triumph held a runway show with Sky Grande Prix located at level 45 of the Singapore Land Tower. From there you could have an undisturbed view of the F1 circuit. Meanwhile with the race on-going, Triumph showcased their latest collection of lingerie by having the models strut their stuff through a massive crowd in a triangle formation before finally coming to a stop on a small stage.

Here are the photographs from the event that we covered.

Architecture & Design

Be it creating an image for an interior or exterior architecture, our aim is to make the end product look realistic and inviting. Hence, crucial planning is required before executing the shoot.

Creating striking, captivating and dynamic images of spaces could be a struggle, especially when we have no control over the weather. This requires patience, problem solving and of course, understanding of lights.

A Valentine's Surprise

Valentine's Day is a day where many surprise their significant other with thoughtful gifts. This year, however, the team at 50nfifty Productions decided to give couples a surprise instead! 

With all the necessary equipment, we secretly made our way to Marina Barrage in the morning and got ready to spring a surprise photoshoot on unsuspecting couples.

We decided to do a surprise shoot for spontaneous couples that we spotted in the hopes of making this year's Valentine's Day a bit more special. 

Initially some couples were skeptical when we approached them as they were worried about any charges but were pleasantly surprised when we told them that the photos will be given to them for no cost at all. 

Thank you to all the lovely couples who were daring enough and we sincerely hope that the photos will serve as a wonderful memory on this special day. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Here's the behind-the-scenes footage of how the photo shoot went down.

  Yun Hao & Michelle   They were probably the youngest couple we had for this surprise photoshoot! But hey, love has no age limit and they were super spontaneous about it!

  Patrick & Jolene   We approached them the moment they stepped out of the lift on the second storey of Marina Barrage! We simply couldn't miss the opportunity as they were both really tall, wore cute colour-coordinated outfits and even had a blue bouquet of roses!

  Tim & Gillian   When we asked them if they would like to take a photo, Tim said that he wasn't dressed up appropriately for this. We certainly don't agree. Look at how naturally compatible they are! No need any nicer outfit for that.

  Jose Manuel & Daniella   We were surprised to find out that they were from Mexico! They were so funny when they told us that they didn't bring their wallets with them. Haha! Little did they expect that this wasn't going to be an issue at all!

  Qin Shi & Belinda   They were there to catch the sunrise and Qin Shi had a whole day of surprises planned for Belinda. The surprise shoot ended up being a bonus surprise for both Belinda as well as Qin Shi himself!

  Nan Jie & Say   I don't know if it was their bicycles or the charming couple's presence that caught our attention! Both are so amazingly gorgeous!  We knew they liked photography because they are BOKEHLICIOUS! If you know what we mean

  Pei Cheng & Jia Min   We waited quite a bit before approaching this lovely couple. Reason? They had their kite flying high up in the air for a really long time! Haha!

  Colin, Angela & Charmaine   Believe it or not, we spotted the mummy cruising in a small bright pink vehicle with her little angel, Charmaine, in her lap while daddy was walking right beside, making sure they were travelling safely. We had to take a photo of this beautiful family!

  Shayam & Siti   We wondered why Shayam was carrying a huge backpack and holding a map only to realise that he isn't from Singapore unlike Siti. However, it was the first time visiting Marina Barrage for the both of them

  Whiteney & Zihui   We are about to call it a day but when we saw this cool looking couple in shades walking towards us, we just simply couldn't resist!  P.S: We saw them from afar having fun posing at the car park so we figured it was ideal to give them a photoshoot!
