Under the Seat, Vietnam

There was a time, when I used to travel by plane quite a bit, mostly short haul within South-East Asia. Most of the life to be seen was outside the window- hence my hundreds of views from above photos, but sometimes funny moments happened on the plane. My neighbour and I never really did meet.Continue reading “Under the Seat, Vietnam”

Police, Bangkok

I saw these guys as I got off the river bus in Bangkok. Judging by their boots, I think this must be their beat. The canals are popular thoroughfares in Bangkok, with the river buses carrying thousands of commuters to work every day. A river bus journey is quite spectacular, with the noise of theContinue reading “Police, Bangkok”

Market, Bangkok

This photo dates back to a session I did with Gavin Goff. We visited a number of markets and temples and Gavin got in there and approached people and interacted. I think this was the main thing I learned from him. Strange that this was just a grab shot then! Here, I was using anotherContinue reading “Market, Bangkok”

River, Vietnam

On the road at the moment – so this strikes a chord. I don’t enjoy flying, but I do enjoy looking out the window. I believe Julianne Kost (a well-known Adobe person) is the same – I enjoyed a book of her aeroplane window photos. When I was young, I used to watch aeroplanes flyingContinue reading “River, Vietnam”

Market Trader, Bangkok

I have only been to Bangkok a few times. But on one of them I managed to get a couple of sessions with Gavin Goff (a noted travel photographer). Gavin’s approach was very proactive: talk to people; get closer. So when we got to the produce market and I saw this man, his advice wasContinue reading “Market Trader, Bangkok”

Model, Swindon

Once upon a time, I used to photograph actors for Spotlight (a actors’ directory). This picture comes from a session I attended with a photographer called Steffano. The model was Kayt Webster-Brown – who is a professional photographer now. I like the simplicity of the image, although most of the things which make it interestingContinue reading “Model, Swindon”

Boys in Blue – Bangkok, 2010

Sometimes you look for pictures: sometimes they come to you. At the last minute, I had flown over to Bangkok to take a session with Gavin Goff (a noted travel photographer). I believe I was with him waiting on the platform of the metro when we met these young men. Much like supermarkets on Sundays,Continue reading “Boys in Blue – Bangkok, 2010”

Riding a Bicycle in Bejing

Thanks to Katie Melua, most people tend to think of Beijing as a place with lots bicycles and 30 years ago, that was probably true. No so much now. Mostly cars. But, there is lots of street life, which I was trying to show a little bit here. And there is a bicycle. Sometimes, whenContinue reading “Riding a Bicycle in Bejing”

Goober Gun at Loreto Fest 2010

Too many landscapes lately – so I thought I would post from a concert. One of the nice things about less formal concerts, is that you can get a decent view of the stage, so it is quite easy to take pictures. Technically, concerts are quite difficult, because there isn’t a lot of ambient lightContinue reading “Goober Gun at Loreto Fest 2010”
