Silkwinds Inflight - Phnom Penh Cocktails

Another editorial shoot for INK Publishing and Silkwinds, Silk Air's inflight magazine. The article was written by Jamie Fullerton about Phnom Penh's trendy cocktail bar scene. The images were a mix of pop-up studio product photography, one light portrait photography and some event style shooting as well as some night photos. The five establishments were situated around the Bassac Lane and Toul Thom Pung market areas of Phnom Penh. Below are the tear sheets taken from the online publication (found here).

Prudential print ads

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.

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.
