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.

Germain Tailors SS017 - Hong Kong Lifestyle Photographer

Good to be back in Asia after a month of travel, and happy to start this new season with a really fun project, working with Germain Tailors on their new Spring Summer 2017 brand campaign in Hong Kong. This time we decided to shoot in the beachside village of Shek O, in the South-East of Hong Kong Island, spending a few days away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Fine white sand, iodine smell, fresh beers, sound of crashing waves... and great tailored outfits to walk around in style.

One of my last jobs in Shanghai was as the photographer for Audemars Piguet luxury watches, presented as a private art exhibition at the Yuz Museum. The Swiss ultra-luxury brand collaborated with French designer Mathieu Lehanneur to create a circular space reflecting the inside of a timepiece, taking visitors into a chronologial journey through the history of the brand and its different influences.

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.
