therefore, be called "photography"
HDR Photography combined with careful layering and blending allows me to quite literally play GOD and tweak the lighting of a shot to Design perfection. These are the first in a series of portraits commissioned to highlight the personalities of the best cafe on Earth!
A toast to Serendipity
Sometimes simple errors can lead to magic
This shot was a result of telling the
model at the beginning of the shoot
that I wanted an "expressionless" face and then explicitly saying "try not to smile"...the result...a classic, "restrained mirth" expression! Did I mean for this to happen? Uhm yeah...sure I did.
The very next frame captured the model "trying not to smile" at the same time the pink gel on the background light fell off...creating a funny moment on a grey background... a wonderfully subtle antithesis!
Sometimes the greatest works are done by friends together...at home.

Every now and again I get given the dream brief for a creative, commercial photographer - when the client comes to me, hat in hand, eyes full of hope and a question mark blinking above their head and they say -
"Hing. We need concepts!"
The client not only wanted bespoke imagery but gave me full autonomy with how to visually communicate their range of technological services. Moreover, they were not afraid to take a well measured step away from the clumsy banality of corporate stock imagery toward more quirky and interesting imagery. I chose to create images thick with human expression, humour and irony.
