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.

Bawah Island, Tropical Resort - Singapore Hotel Photographer

Bawah is a private island off the coast of Indonesia, just a short ride away from Singapore. I was recently assigned to shoot a series of branding visuals to illustrate the natural experience and luxury facilities of the resort. Aerial photography played a big part in this project, showcasing the spectacular views of the islands and reef, but also underwater photography to immerse the viewer into the crystal clear lagoon, and architectural images focusing on the sustainable integration of buildings into the local natural elements.

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.
