I finally found a lab to develop color 4×5 in Bangkok. So hopefully this will push me to shoot more of it. It’s been a slow intro into 2014 for the blog, but that should change soon enough. Lots of interesting things afoot. A few exciting new projects in the works, and hopefully some revisiting of old stories left alone for way too long. For now, here are two recent images for a fashion campaign for Sula Clothing’s SS2014 line.

Just a few test images from a recent fashion shoot in Hanoi, Vietnam. I’ll finish up the job sometime in January, after the new year and a few other jobs in Hoi An and Bangkok. For now though, I’m enjoying the soft lines, warm tones, and inherent faults in the film I’m using. So Yeah. Happy New Year to everyone. May your nights be filled with wine and roses and drunken toasts.

I had a great assignment the other day with a new client–Domi, a small new brand from a boutique fashion designer based in the United States. It was basically six outfits–all nightwear and all white cotton–that she sent over to me in Hanoi. She gave very little in the way of direction, saying that she loved some of the other fashion work I’d done, and that I should just kind of go out and find some nice photos. So pretty much a dream job. Here are some nice simple clothes and I want you to hang out with a beautiful model and not worry about makeup or hair or wrinkles or anything else. Just get on a motorbike and go. Which is what we did. We ended up finding an old abandoned bus in a rice field on the outskirts of the capital. We also visited a longan garden on the river and a factory rooftop downtown. Plus a few seedy short-time motels. Luckily I’ve worked with Trang Pham–in my humble opinion the most gorgeous and talented model in all of Vietnam–many times before, so she was game to entertain me on some of my stranger requests with barely more than an arched eyebrow. Here are a few photographs from the day. Thanks to Ali for being such an amazing and relaxed client and letting me loose with her clothes. And thanks to Trang for spending the day with me and never giving less than 110%.

I just finished photographing a fourth collection for Sula Clothing out of the UK. AW 2013. This time the designer, model, and I found ourselves in an old pharmaceuticals factory on the outskirts of Hanoi for the shoot. Sula is one of my favorite clients to work with, as Alison, the designer, is always up to try out new ideas, and is never afraid to get her hands–or clothes–dirty. Here are a few images from the day. Enjoy.
