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。

I was the official photographer for a big mining conference held in Beijing at which the keynote speaker was Sam Walsh. I had the opportunity to sit him down for one and a bit minutes to make this quick portrait.

我在一场北京的矿业峰会担任官方摄影师。Sam Walsh做了主旨发言。我利用了坐在他旁边的一时之机拍下了这张照片

Li Xiaofeng - sculptor 李晓峰—雕塑艺术家

20130920_4436
I had the privilege to photograph Li Xiaofeng in his Beijing studio. He also has a Dingdejing studio as well, which I missed him by days at when i was there in February. His work is reconstructing shards of rejected pottery into other forms, my notably dresses and coats. His work is collected world wide. For those in Beijing you might have seen two pieces at The Opposite House. 

我得到授权在李晓峰北京的工作室为他拍摄照片。他在景德镇也有一个工作室,不巧的是我二月在那里的行程和他刚好错开几天。他的作品是将明清汉代残瓷片重新打磨塑形组合起来,演变成其他的形态,最引人瞩目的是礼服和大衣些列。他的作品在世界范围内被广泛收藏。在北京的喻舍酒店您可以找到他的两件作品。

The brief was to make the photos look British. This is very much a collaboration with the band. 

拍摄的主题风格是英式摇滚。我们和乐队进行了大量的协调合作。

Sometimes you get two minutes with a public face, this is my making the most of this opportunity at the PM's lunch. The photo was made in the VIP room. 

能有两分钟和名人相处,这是我在这次总理午餐会获取的最大机遇。这张照片摄于VIP休息室。

2012 portfolio


20121212-3302 copy

Each year I make a webpage for public consumption and a book for myself. This is a selection of 57 of my favourite photograph of the year. Enjoy! So now that Raffles City has celebrated Xmas 2013 lets look back on 2012.

Snow outside so I decided to try my hand at some male fashion

20121104-6515c

Today was the first snowfall of the year (not to be confused with Skyfall which is very different). David has been wanting to meet again for some time. We did some test shots together end of last year. He is not a model, nor has pretences to be one, i like that i can make him look very butch even threatening, in the photographs. I like the combination of the orange underwear which leave him some what vulnerable yet, his expression is any thing but vulnerable.

Qingdao Number One Bathing Beach

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.

Five Beautiful women who make beautiful homes

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.
