Prudential print ads

Another commercial print ads photo shoot for Prudential, shot at Plus Max studio in Phnom Penh. Agency Champagne, producer Piseth Chea, art director Sola Aurelien. This otherwise easy shoot was a nightmare, as the very young children casted, under 4 years old were completely unmanageable and cried the whole time.

What could have been shot in half a day went to about 10 hours + with little success when it came to the younger none talents. I managed to get hold of one of the final layouts pictured here. In the end we managed to capture a few good images with the very young kids looking good and happy. But haven't seen the final layouts yet. The young boy pictured here was excellent, he was about 7 years old.

Guinness Bottle

Another beer bottle shoot for Cambrew. This time the new Guinness bottle. Again, always fiddly, messy and time consuming, sticking labels straight, spraying layers of acrylic for a dulling spray look, and oily water droplets that are easily smudged or run. All angles were required, high, low, straight etc. Here is one finished poster using my images that I managed to get a hold of from the designer.

Mekong Delta Snaps

A six day road trip through the Mekong Delta by scooter. From Saigon to Phnom Penh via Ben Tre, Vinh Long, Sa Dec, Chau Doc and Ha Tien. Great weather, good street food, lots of boats and friendly folk.

Below a handful of travel snaps from the trip shot with the Sony A7Rii, Zeiss 24-70 f4 lens and Canon 16-35 f2.8 L Mkii on a Metabones adapter.

Interiors shoot at Nagaworld 2

Interior design photography of the newly opened Nagaworld 2 in Phnom Penh. For Steelman Partners based in Las Vegas who designed all the interiors in the building. This was a speed marathon HDR shoot over 4 days. Trying to recreate computer renderings of almost every space in the building. Working around operations, guests and unwanted objects and furniture. In the end 250 plus images were selected for HDR processing, if only Photoshop ACR or Lightroom had a batch HDR processing feature it would make life a lot easier.

A dedicated album of general interior photography can be found here.
