Corporate Culture Photographer with a scope of work that covers editorial, advertising, corporate, architectural & industrial photography.
Currently based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with my wife Claire and three children, I photograph some amazing people, places and space throughout Asia; Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Philippines & Indonesia.
"I frequently have to shoot in demanding locations, unpredictable weather conditions and against impossible time restraints. . . and I love it!"
When not out on assignment, I spend my time photographing, developing and printing fine art pieces on a large format Linhof Technika Film Camera.
Over the years, I have had the pleasure of photographing some truly amazing people representing a broad selection of dynamic businesses – from small independent companies to large multi national corporations – from all over the world:

The Executive Editorial Portrait Portfolio
Our Executive Editorial Portrait portfolios are ideally suited for the high flyers; the bosses, the Chair, the C-suiters, the go-getters, the jet-setters and the entrepreneurs – the kind of people who need more than just a single headshot. The EEP portfolios are a collection of carefully crafted portraits designed to represent the subject in today's multifarious online & printed media applications; Magazine articles, Presentations & Talks, Press releases, Company Annual Report, Forums, Linked-In profiles etc.

THE TECHNICAL STUFF
I use a Hasselblad Medium format system for all portraits and product work and Nikon systems for the ad hoc documentary work. For lighting set-ups both in the studio and on location I use a range of Profoto lights and modifiers. All images are processed using Hasselblad's Phocus software and Phase One's Image Editing Software Capture One Pro.
All images produced are optimised for contrast, colour balance and sharpness as part of the post production process. If more detailed photoshopping or DI work is required, I am happy to recommend the services of a professional digital retoucher.
Being based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia I am perfectly located to cover any photographic assignment throughout Southeast Asia and the Middle East.
***DUE TO RESTRICTIONS ON TRAVEL IN RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, ALL OVERSEAS TRAVEL HAS BEEN RESTRICTED. UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE I WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO ENGAGE IN ASSIGNMENTS WITHIN MALAYSIA***
Where as most of my work is done independently, I still love to work as part of a team. For larger projects I have access to a network of highly skilled professional freelancers; stylists, make-up-artists, art directors, talent agents, lighting crews, set builders and retouchers.
SO, WHY USE A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER?
As cameras grow in digital sophistication it is becoming easier for everyone to get pleasing results for apparently little cost. However, using an amateur to take an important picture can be a false economy. The impact a professionally taken image has on a client’s market is far stronger than that of a quickly grabbed snap from a digital camera. Professional photography will sell your product or your company, amateur photography will not.Photographers are not just technicians. A professional understands how to capture images that are right for a client’s business and convey the message required. This experience enables them to obtain successful results in any situation. It is as important for the photographer as it is you that the images are right for your business and convey the message you require. As a proportion of your media/print budget, the cost of getting the original imagery as good as it can be is tiny.When commissioning a photographer the images they produce will be exclusive to you. Images bought from a photographic library will only be exclusive for the specific area you have bought a licence for. Unless you negotiate an exclusive deal with the library other companies will be able to licence the same image and use it for their own products or company. Negotiating exclusivity with a library is often more expensive than commissioning a photographer.
