Last week I went on an awesome trip to Siem Reap in Cambodia to see Angkor Wat with my father and aunt. I may or may not have gone a little trigger happy with my camera….OK, I was completely trigger happy.
Angkor Wat is one of those places that no amount of photographs and documentaries can capture the overwhelming scale, intricacy and complexity of. Cambodia itself is a beautiful country, albeit very poor. Knowing its past and present problems, I was even more pleasantly surprised by how great the people were. On top of exploring beautiful, inspiring temple ruins hundreds of years old, the Cambodians that we met along the trip, however briefly, really made the trip for me.
The first thing I did after coming back to Bangkok was to get the film I took with the Yashica-A to be developed, but I didn’t get a chance to pick it up until earlier. Wish it isn’t so expensive because film is so much fun to use!
Incubus at the Silverlake Music Festival in Pattaya, Thailand back in January this year.
Say what you will about this band selling out pretty much post-S.C.I.E.N.C.E. but Morning View holds a special place in my heart (hello, high school years!) and their performance in Pattaya was pretty fun to watch.
I’ve always found taking photos of food really fun, so you can imagine how much I love getting paid to do so. Getting to sample some of the dishes is quite awesome too!
A few shots from work I did with Snapper, a New Zealand fish and chips restaurant (and one of my favourites in the city!) located behind Cheap Charlie’s on Sukhumvit Soi 11.
I was hesitant to do wedding photography before, just because there’s a lot of pressure to get it right the first time around because there’s no second time around.
I was presented with an opportunity a few months ago and decided to go for it. Despite how nervous I was prior to and during the ceremony, I’m still pretty happy with how the shots turned out, and could not have asked for a better first couple to shoot a wedding for! Alex and Neil were fun, extremely easy to work with and gave me such a beautiful environment to shoot in. Held at the Nirvana Koh Chang Resort, it was a small and beautiful wedding, with an amazing backdrop of sea and sky.
A few months ago, a friend of mine, Oz, asked me to take fishing photos for him. He owns and maintains bangkokhooker-fishing.com, a website definitely worth checking out if you enjoy fishing, especially in Thailand.
Although spending 12 hours on a small fishing boat got a bit tough (noon time was mad hot), I enjoyed the scenery of the reservoir in Rayong that we went to.
