A few weeks back, I had the pleasure to travel back to India for a fashion shoot with Sula Clothing. The designer flew in from the UK and we worked with a Mexican model, the lovely Sofia Torres, in a lofty green garden apartment overlooking Hauz Khas Lake in South Delhi. We went to the market to buy fresh fruits and marigolds and random threads and beads and other accents for the styling of the shoot. Then we spent two days in the grueling dirty dusty suffocating heat of South Asia in the middle summer shooting a winter collection. And weirdly enough, it worked. Like a lot. I think the photographs came out really well. Mostly because of the model and designer. With these things, I basically just show up with a camera and if I can manage to point it in the right direction, something magical is bound to already be happening. So here are some selects from the day. Hopefully we’ll be able to get to Kerala for the next one. Fingers crossed.
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.
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.

Here’s a quick look at some new fashion work I shot in Hanoi, for Sula Clothing out of the UK. Sula has been a regular client of mine for a few years now, and I always look forward to their new collections. Our styles match up perfectly, and Alison, the owner and designer, is always game to take a few risks with the photography. I really couldn’t ask for a better client relationship. For most of the images this time around, we went to old abandoned factory in the capital, plus a short-time guesthouse, to get a really gritty, tactile feel to the pictures. Much thanks to everyone involved. Until next time.
