A travel feature photography assignment for Qantas Airways’ Travel Insider inflight magazine, written by Ann Fullerton. The trip was part of a wider tour run by travel company World Expeditions. Below are some tear sheets from the article plus other shots from the Free the Bears sanctuaries located at Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center, Cambodia, and Luang Prabang, Laos. As well as a short side trip to Mandalao elephant sanctuary in Luang Prabang.
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.
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.
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.
