Season's greetings with a tree

It doesn’t feel like Xmas when it is -5 outside with snow, it feels like a ski resort. For most of my clients and friends you are enjoying Xmas parties and drinks which are a bit lacking in Beijing. So here is my greetings in this holiday season, though the Chinese will wait a month or so. The tree is by Laurens Tan an artist who keeps moving around the world. The tree was commissioned by The Opposite House and photographed for Red Gate Gallery.

IPBC Conference

20121203-1290IPBC

I really enjoy photographing conferences as I learn a lot, as well as working in a structure that requires me to make interesting photographs of important people in their fields, in awkward situations, i.e. eating, drinking and speaking. This photograph is a pause between thoughts of Roger Shang, Chief Patent and Technology Counsel, Alibaba Group.
