In preparation for Scraped (link is to the Facebook event page), my upcoming group gallery show in Soho in February, the curator has put together this collage of my photos. Not a bad selection, if I say so myself.
One of the ways I know how much photography means to me …
Last night I was booked to shoot the launch party for HK indie band Operator‘s new CD, Observatory Road. Three bands, crappy lighting, sold out venue (which meant I had little room to move around). I didn’t get home until after 1 AM and I was exhausted.
Even so, I could not go to bed without first importing my photos into Lightroom and doing a quick check on what I got.
I shot 925 photos in 3 hours and on first past 282 of them I rate “okay” which means I’ve got a lot left to do …
After too long a pause, I found a subject to inspire me and went back into the studio again last night. The woman is Faye Wan, lead singer of Hong Kong indie band Hazden and a design student. Faye has a powerful voice and is also a warm and friendly person. I’ve shot her in concert twice and the band used some of my images in their recent CD booklet. I don’t believe she’s ever done any studio modelling before, but you don’t see (or at least I don’t see) very many Hong Kong women with this amount of ink on their body and I knew together we could create some great images. Here’s the first, more to come.
