China Hotel Photographer - Accor Group, Mercure Wuhan

Part of being a commercial photographer in China is having to find creative solutions in very challenging situations. The most recent example of that just happened, when our photographers team arrived on site to shoot a Mercure Hotel in Wuhan only to find that the hotel was still under construction. In that case, "pre-opening" was to be understood as "total chaos". However, the client was desperate and completely relying on us to find some kind of magic way to make the place look clean, comfortable and attractive. With a bit of experience, we now know how to take it step by step, using natural lighting effects and selective framing in the best way to make things look the way they should. Creating atmospheric, story-telling images in all circumstances has now become our daily routine. Here are a few outtakes from our latest photo shoot for Accor Group in China.

Hong Kong Architecture Photographer - Ports 1961 Pop-Up

Photo documentary about the construction of Ports 1961 event set in Hong Kong, designed and built by Bureau Betak. The venue was a large open concrete structure set on the rooftop of a ferry pier, overlooking Victoria Harbour. I was assigned to capture behind-the-scene moments to showcase the various challenges involved in the making of such a set, as well as architectural views of the completed structure in its context, the way it was used for the event, and how people interacted with the space.
