China Lifestyle Photographer - Germain Tailors, Shanghai

Outtake from a recent portrait session: a new advertising campaign for the french tailor "Germain" in Shanghai. Germain has been working within the textile industry in China for over 7 years, producing high-end bespoke suits for men. He has already supplied some of the world's most famous brands with his craft. For selected clients, he has recently opened his own little private studio in the quiet heart of Shanghai's old French Concession.

As a photographer, I've had the chance to work with Germain on many occasions, following him from busy factories and colorful markets to trendy design studios and fancy art galleries... I have documented the whole process of his art. Meanwhile, I have learned a great deal from the values and lifestyle of a classic tailor living from his passion, far away from home, against all winds of modern society.

China Luxury Event Photographer - Shanghai Fashion Week

This week I had the opportunity to take backstage photos for a fashion show in Shanghai, documenting the preparation and off-moments of the event. I worked with my new Nikon D600 on this assignment, which appears to be a surprising and amazing little camera on the field, absolutely suitable for any demanding professional photographer. I was very pleased with the rich, sharp, deep files it produces. The girls were nice, too.
