Architecture & Interior Photographer in Seoul, South Korea: AmorePacific Headquarters

South Korea’s largest beauty company AmorePacific recently relocated their headquarters to a new mixed-use building designed by starchitect David Chipperfield in Yongsan district, Seoul.

In their quest of perfection for this new flagship building which won many architecture awards, AmorePacific commissioned Danish textile company Kvadrat to install their signature Soft Cells acoustic sound-absorbing wall panels throughout the entire space including corridors, offices, meeting rooms, research labs, retails etc. Kvadrat also provided high-end designer fabrics for much of the seating and curtains of the building, making AmorePacific Headquarters the most heavily Kvadrat equiped project in the world unpon its completion.

The final outcome is a stunning piece of architecture with extreme care for detail and spectacular interiors with opera-like acoustical qualities, which I was fortunate enough to document for Kvadrat’s booklet and general communication material.

China corporate photographer: LDC Annual Report, Yunnan Coffee Farming

Yunnan province in Southern China has emerged as a coffee producing region this past decade and is now becoming the focus of attention as a new player on the global stage for coffee trading.

Hong Kong Cruise Photographer - Genting Dream Cruise

A few months ago I was hired on a very special and unusual assignment, shooting advertising visuals onboard a cruise ship for Genting Dream Cruise, departing from Hong Kong and sailing to Vietnam and the Philippines. It was my first time traveling on such a vessel, let alone living on water for 2 weeks with the rest of our team. It was an amazing experience, at times challenging yet overall great fun. It was also my first project working with medium format camera Fujifilm GFX 50s.
