This is the V4 of my website. For historical interest (and because it’s so small and totally different to this site) I’ve put it up as a record of the work I did in advertising and editorial in the 1990s and early 2000s. During this time I did work for Ford Motor Company, Small Luxury Hotels and many others. Enjoy. (link)

This exquisite work is on display October to December 2012. it is stunningly beautiful. It was a great joy to photograph it. I can’t believe that the AGNSW passed up a chance to own one several years ago.
Thanks to The World of Chinese for publishing my photo-essay on Qingdao Number One Bathing beach I photographed this time last year on the FLP trip. Thanks to Bobby Brill for the contact and being such a hoot during the 7 days we spent there. This comes with a small essay. They have asked for three more.
Small magazine shoot today photographing the boss and the team from DARA (not to be confused with a Spanish clothing company) It is to go with an interview. Bought a set of flashes for the shoot. I made 6 set ups, used various lenses and had a very intense 2 hour shoot with a 2 hour edit and 3 hour touch up… My touching up skills just got a lot better, I put them through three programmes, and i think found a balance between the extreme of say a Clique advert where the skin looks plastic and sprayed on and reality. The scary thing for me is that i made them appear real while being quite torched up, in China we call it ‘looking one’s best’. Link to their website, when the magazine comes out I will link that.

Since arriving in Beijing I have been photographing the parks that give us some relief from the big city. To make it more interesting to myself i gave myself some rules. Each park is 90 minutes, with one camera and one lens, I can go back in another season and shoot it again. These sets are going up on City Weekend’s website as a blog.
Ritan Park, Mudan Yuan and City Wall Park.
