As a football fan and photographer, I have always dreamed of finding a way to combine my two passions. When the opportunity to work with Sabah Football Club (Sabah FC) presented itself, I knew that this was my chance to make that dream a reality.
However, it was not an easy task to convince the management team of Sabah FC to collaborate with Fujifilm Malaysia. It took months of persistence, perseverance, and passion for both football and photography to finally get them to agree to the partnership.
When the day finally arrived for the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Sabah FC and Fujifilm Malaysia, I felt a sense of pride and accomplishment knowing that I had played a part in making it happen. The MoU aims to promote football and photography in Malaysia and increase awareness of mirrorless cameras and the Fujifilm brand in the world of sports photography.
Not only did I manage to secure this partnership, but I also secured a camera sponsor for Sabah FC to continue photographing their journey until the end of the season and also the AFC Cup. This was a first in my career, and I felt honoured to be given this opportunity to showcase the capabilities of Fujifilm cameras.
My passion for photography and Fujifilm cameras has also led me to hope that one day, I can represent Fujifilm as a photographer. The partnership between Fujifilm Malaysia and Sabah FC has given me the chance to work closely with Fujifilm cameras and further develop my skills as a photographer.
In conclusion, my journey in convincing Fujifilm Malaysia to collaborate with Sabah FC has been a story of passion, perseverance, and football. I hope that this partnership will inspire others to pursue their dreams and never give up, no matter how challenging the road may be.
