The Argyle Hotel group work continued with the old Shanghai airport hotel. Included above are two of the more unusual photographs. I mostly shot rooms. One staff member both looked and acted like a young Chinese Mr Spoke. We taught him to stay 'that is highly illogical' In the second photo, the tailor's assistant in his rather wonderful room made for a great portrait. 

我和雅阁酒店的合作仍在继续,这次是一座位于上海虹桥机场的酒店。上面这两张图片比较不寻常。我通常拍摄的是房间的照片。在裁缝的帮助下,我在他那奇妙的房间里完成了这副绝佳的肖像。在他的照片上面的是一个面容和举止很像年轻版的中国史波克(电影星际迷航中的角色)。我们教他如何保持史波克的这个不符合逻辑的表情。

This is my pitch for working with business magazines. From walking into the room to finishing this set up was 10 minutes. The whole shoot was a relaxing 25 minutes including setting up a shot behind his desk and him taking a call.

这是我为商业杂志做的广告概要。从进场到完成机位布置用时10分钟。25分钟拍摄过程是轻松愉悦的,其中包括办公桌后侧机位布置,及他本人接听一个电话的时间。

I’ve done some odd jobs this year but this one is up there as the oddest. An acquaintance told me he had a shoot I could work with him on. I asked a few more questions, like what, when and how much. Shooting rubber in a small studio is not easy. It is much more suited to a large space with very big soft boxes. I made do. Most of the photographs were against a white background for their catalogue, however on the sixth suit, i shot the white then moved my navy blue background in and added a bit of drama. So if you are in the fetish manufacturing, I can say I’m experienced.
