1987, the year of living dangerously!
The Aussies started it all with the coverage of Barlow and Chambers drug trafficking case.
I was working for a local Penang paper; young and reckless, shooting for the paper and moonlighting for the Australian agencies! Money was fast and good.... we never see so many photographers and "green bills" in our life!
The high court in Penang was like a media zoo!...
The important thing about covering a high-pressure-high-court case is a electronic flash with very fast recycling time! In 1987, Quantum battery was the "King "! I decided to built one that is FASTER!
