I’m currently working in Tokyo, Japan, and had some free time to wander around the Shibuya crossing area with my Fuji X-Pro1. Nothing industry-shifting, just a few snapshots while I waited to meet up with friends for the night. I love the Fuji camera for carrying around when I’m traveling and not actively on assignment–light, lithe, and likely as not to get a good shot on the go. And it fits oh so well over your shoulder.

Last month I traveled to Mai Chau, in the northern mountains of Vietnam, to shoot Sula Clothing’s new AW2014 collection. I’ve worked with the boutique design house for over two years now, and each shoot is a chance to experiment more and take more chances. Sula remains one of my favorite clients, and I really can’t say enough good things about them. I love their clothes, and Alison, the owner and designer, has always granted me an almost limitless freedom to do what I will on each photoshoot. The images here stood out for me for whatever reasons. For those interested, you can check out the website–and buy Sula’s beautiful boutique designer rags–HERE.

At the end of last year I had a chance to travel to Siem Reap, Cambodia, to catch a few shows and go behind the scenes of the newly-opened Phare Circus. The circus originated in Battambang, a bit up country from the famed Angkor Wat locale, but with its success, it soon migrated and opened a second branch. While I was in town–on assignment for Silkwinds Magazine out of Singapore–the performers made several journeys to the town center to raise interest in the show, and we also made it out to the temples for a few action shots. Above are the tearsheets, which look amazing. Though trust me, it’s way better in person.

A few months back, I worked on another cover shoot for Cebu Pacific Air, out of the Philippines. The concept was to follow a model through Hanoi for a day and capture her amidst the color and vibrancy of the capital. A simple idea with a lot of room to be creative. My favorite kind of assignment. Here are a few of the final images used in the story. That specific shade of golden yellow in the top photo will forever remind me of northern Vietnam.

A few months back I worked on a story with Mike Ives, a writer for The New York Times, about a Payments for Ecosystems program in the central Vietnam province of Lam Dong. It was a fun few days, and a great story as well. Who doesn’t like riding a motorbike through mountain passes and hills in the cool highlands of Southeast Asia? Read what is absolutely 100% more interesting than anything I could possibly say about the subject here: PES Vietnam.
