Last month, amidst a flurry of assignments in major metropolises across Asia, I was sent to Koh Samui in southern Thailand for Fah Thai Magazine for a few days of relative peace and calm to photograph the myriad ways the humble coconut is used in cooking, medicine, and daily life on the island. It was a nice respite. Almost a vacation of sorts. I simply rented a motorbike and drove around with my camera for three days, trying to cover as much ground as possible. INK Global is one of my favorite clients, and this job was a good example of why I love working with them so much–a fun story in a great location with beautiful design in the final publication. I’ll be back soon with some outtakes from my time on the island. But for now, here’s the spread.

You have really interesting job, the photos are always great, and they are very exotic for us here in Finland.
GORGEOUS work! I suspect you’ve made your client very happy indeed — just as you have this reader. 🙂
I realised that I couldn’t stop going through each photo, again and again. Very well framed!
Great photos! What a fun job you have
Great set of photos! I came back from neighbouring Koh Phangan a couple of weeks ago and the taste of fresh coconut is still in my mouth. I brought back with me artisanal coconut oil, every time I miss tropical lands I use it on my body…as in almost every day!
A fantastic series of photos ~ a great spread, you bring out the magic of this place.
Your photos are amazing 🙂 Thanks for sharing
