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 designed all of the interiors in the building. This was a speed marathon HDR shoot over 4 days. Trying to match 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.

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

Another Day at Liger

Some of the many shots from an events photography shoot at Liger Leadership Academy outside of Phnom Penh. The photo shoot coincided with a group of visiting American journalists who had flown in for a special tour of the school, with the students pretty much being the guides. A combination of capturing the kids in the act for the Liger website, as well as loosely staged portraits for inclusion in the journalist's stories (The Sydney Morning Herald among others).

The last time I was shooting at Liger was around 2 to 3 years ago, the young kids I remember have turned into confident young adults. A unique school in an excellent study and living environment, perhaps the only one like it in Cambodia.
