London Photography Series

It’s been a whirlwind couple of months for me, 50 hours on a plane over 3 countries and with new clients.  So it’s been a while since I updated the blog.


So here is some video from the London photography series with Train to Create.. Kindly sponsored and supported by Profoto, WacomSchön and Metro Imaging

Thanks to everyone who attended.

Portraits tattoo festival bangkok

Tattoo festival Thailand

A couple of guys from the Wat Bang Pra tattoo festival in Thailand.

Have not been to this festival for a few years now, it’s a shame as it’s a wonderful event and I really recommend a visit if you happen to be in Thailand. It’s just an hour from Bangkok.

Skin Deep Magazine published a 6 page feature on the festival and it was some of my earliest published work.

Bangkok portrait

Portrait of Henrik

Whilst sorting through my catalogue, I came across this portrait we shot in Bangkok almost 3 years ago now. Seems a shame to leave it on the hard drive, so here we are.

Rare foray into Leica land.

London extras

Since I don’t use any photography networking sites anymore, this blog and possibly the facebook page are the only places I put up pics that really don’t belong anywhere.. Here is one more from London last year.


East of Hanoi

Vietnam. a beautiful country.




I lead a private photography trip into Burma last year. It really is a beautiful country and wonderful for photographers.

Banned by Instagram

Not on Instagram

The good people at Instagram were not fond of the nipple in the photo and promptly deleted it and sent me a nice little warning.. So here it is.



End of the year has been very busy.. only now having a little time to plan things for next year.. Will be in Europe mid April, then perhaps NYC. Japan later in year and will lead a photo trip into Bhutan also.




Mamiya 6

From the first roll or 2.  Very impressed with this camera. I’m no gear head but this is nice.. and compared to the rz67, much easier to lug around locations.


More from this shoot here…
