Client: Argyle Hotels 客户：东川至和
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.
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.
