Recent work - Afisha Mir magazine

The October edition of Russian travel magazine Afisha Mir has a 12- page feature on Macau illustrated with my images. Afisha Mir is a great looking mag - well designed with a strong emphasis on photography.


Now represented by Current Studio

I have recently joined Current Studio. Very happy to be included in their roster of great photographers! Included are 3 folios of my work - travel & tourism, home & garden and architecture.


Recent work - SKYE for Ismaya Group

Last month I was commissioned by Ismaya Group to shoot SKYE - Jakarta's hippest new restaurant + bar. This 56th floor establishment was designed by Willis Kusuma Architects.


Recent work - food shots for KuDeTa

Last May I returned to KuDeTa in Bali for another session of food shots. The chefs at KuDeTa - Phil Davenport, Ben Cross, Kieran Morland and Will Goldfarb - are super talented and a real pleasure to work with. Their beautiful presentations of food made for some great images. Each dish was shot in a simple graphic style - using a diffuser and reflectors.


Jakarta photo tours


Last friday I lead my 1st photo tour in jakarta. The tour was centred around Kota and Glodok in the North of the city. We started out at Fatahillah square shooting street performers and then moved on to chinatown. There was a full moon festival at the Kim Tek Le temple which made for some wonderful photo oppurtunities. It was difficult to drag ourselves away from this beautiful event, but we wanted to take in the late afternoon light at Sunda Kelapa and then shoot some night scenes back at Fatahillah. 

I'm available for one on one mentoring or to lead small groups of up to 5 photographers any day of the week - depending on my photography schedule. Beginners or advanced photographers welcome. We can customise a tour to suit level and subject matter.
