Smelling the roses

16 06 2011

In the rush of being a freelance photographer, it’s hard to stop and smell the roses. Deadlines, meetings, research, pitches, more meetings keep me away from shooting for myself. Kinda like recharging the creative batteries so its nice to actually get a chance to go out and shoot just for myself.

I had a chance to do this on Sunday where I took a photography class out to Olympic stadium for a practical workshop. It was a great experience as the students were great and really took to finding their own style of photography.

I have been going to the Olympic Stadium over the years and I find it to be my favorite spot to shoot in the city. It’s a lively place no matter what time of the day.

A couple of images from the day:

Last one is a portrait of a football spectator that I previously snapped 5 years ago.

He was very surprised that I remembered him from 5 years ago. I told him that it was very easy to remember someone as handsome as him. He just smiled and then slapped me on the shoulder.

Nice one.

Beer Leo distributor party

Beer Leo distributor party


I had the pleasure of taking photos at a party for distributors thrown by the Thai based Singha company for their Leo brand. You might have seen some press about their 2010 calendar where the models posed nude with only some body paint to “cover” their bodies.

There were no models covered in body paint but there were some pretty fun games that the guests were able to play. So below are some shots from the event.
