Pictures from recent editorial and commercial photography assignments around China, Macau, and Hong Kong. Most work involves food, portraiture, or industrial locations.
The Air Macau in-flight magazine commissioned a few photos of prominent Tianhe-district architecture for the June-July issue of their magazine. A number of interesting structures have popped up in Guangzhou's new central business district in recent years, including Zaha Hadid's curvy Guangzhou Opera House and the Canton Tower.
Street photographer Kale Taylor was kind enough to take some time out in Guangzhou to sit down for a quick interview of sorts. Kale works primarily with medium format film, which has become a fairly exotic medium in recent years.
Galaxy Magazine asked me to make a few portraits of personalities associated with the new China Rouge nightclub in Macau earlier this year. I spent over a week helping film a series of promotional videos at China Rouge around the same time, so I think I may now know my way around the venue (which is a difficult thing to accomplish; much of the club interior is coated in either black paint or mirrors).
Cafe Deco is one of those clients who just keep coming back for more images. I've worked with three general managers at the Macau restaurant over the years photographing food and portraits. The brief is always fairly simple: make it look cool.
The restaurant's marketing materials are thoroughly covered in my images now; from banners, signs, and advertisements to the menu and lunchtime place mats. It's always gratifying to see work put to use like that.
The Pan-seared foie gras above and other images here are from an assignment earlier this year photographing new menu items.
