Thankful for these opportunities last month…
Prestige Magazine / July 2012 / Fashion | Designer / Alexander Wang
I mentioned a while back that I was commissioned by Prestige to photograph a portrait of Alexander Wang. The photos have been published in the July issue with Ethan Hawke on the cover. (side note: Gattaca is one of my favorite movies) @#!&@(#!!! Not only did they publish my favorite shot, but they also included my second set up in the contents page. Thank you Vivienne and William for the amazing opportunity, thanks to Justine for being my stand-in, and thanks to the Joyce team for their time!
The Wall Street Journal / June 2012 / Scene Asia / SceneStyle / Jason Lam & Elle Lee
I started contributing to The Wall Street Journal’s SceneStyle feature last month! It’s been a lot of fun keeping an eye open while I’m out and about and stopping people for their photo. It helps that I can speak Cantonese and I’m not a creepy dude. Last month, photos of Elle and Jason were published! The exciting part is that the best of the photos on the web get printed in WSJ! My friend from L.A. Sean Marc Lee, whose work I’m also a huge fan of, contributes from Taiwan so I’m in very talented company. Huge thanks to Lara, Jessica and Andrew for the opportunity!
Surface Magazine / Issue 95 / Leon Jakimič of Lasvit
I received an unexpected e-mail from Surface Magazine with a commission to photograph a portrait of Leon Jakimič at the Ritz-Carlton, one of the properties across the world that contain his elaborate light installations. We shot loads of options with almost every installation on the property as well as different simple portrait options. Leon was super charming and easy to photograph! Thank you Jada and James for the opportunity and Meagan for sending me the tears and the magazine.
Really excited about a lookbook I’m shooting today, The Armoury 2 opening, as well as a personal project this weekend! Also returned from a mission trip to the Philippines on Monday so I have a boatload of photos to share from that…truly grateful, thankful and hopeful.
