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.

The Louis Dreyfus Company is working in close collaboration with coffee farmers around Asia to help and promote sustainable farming methods, aiming to raise the ethical and quality standards of production and overall improve the entire supply chain.

My latest collaboration with LDC saw me travelling to Yunnan to document the work of farmers in the hills of Pu’er, as well as the quality control, warehousing and shipping process in Kunming for the company’s regional and global annual report and sustainability report.

Singapore Photographer | Corporate Social Responsibility - Coffee Farming

As more and more companies worldwide are now engaging into corporate social responsibilty initiatives, I was recently assigned by the Louis Dreyfus Company to document their CSR training programs for coffee farmers in Vietnam and Indonesia, showcasing the various environments and group activities led by LDC agronomists in a documentary style to illustrate the company's global and regional annual reports. The project took place over a period of 2 weeks and brought us to coffee plantions in the Lam Dong and Dak Lak provinces of Southern Vietnam, as well as North Sumatra and West Lampung regions in Indonesia.

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.

Singapore Architecture Photography

Singapore is an incredible playground for architects and in the past decade has seen world-class flagship projects coming out of the ground such as Interlace by OMA, Reflections at Keppel Bay by Daniel Libeskind, South Beach by Foster and Partners, LaSalle College of the Arts by RSP Architects, Orchard Central by DP Architects or the icnonic Marina Bay Sands by Moshe Safdie.

Singapore's architecture has succesfully developed into its own distinctive style in a hot tropical climate with lush vegetation, placing environmental integration and preservation at the core of its values. Today Singapore is well recongnised as one of the world's greenest cities and as a pioneer in renewable energies, with buildings integrating natural cooling systems, reflective surfaces, open air spaces, cascading gardens and smart landscaping with easy access to parks, water, public transport and outdoor activities facilities.

Here are a few of these projects I recently photographed, and will be back in Singapore soon to continue documenting urban design and architecture. Feel free to get in touch with me for more information or shooting request.
