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.
This year I joined the Cathay Camera Club. I attended a few meetings first to check it out and found a great group of people to hang out with every other Monday night. So I finally broke out the checkbook and joined just in time to be able to participate in their upcoming annual exhibition.
It starts this Friday night and runs through the weekend at the HK Cultural Centre. I’ll have 3 images on display and there will also be images from more than 20 other photographers. I think it’s going to be a great show – and it’s free! I’ll be there Friday night for the opening and also will be there late Saturday afternoon. Come check it out!
P.S. If you’re into photography as a hobby or student or semi-pro, this is a great place to meet like-minded people. Check out the web site and then come to one of our meetings, free, to see if it might be for you.
This was the second year for Beertopia Hong Kong – a festival of craft beers from around the world. Last year it was held at the Western Market in Sheung Wan; this year it was outdoors at the West Kowloon Promenade. Aside from the beers, there was a good selection of food and 10 bands performing live, including visiting Canadian band Van de Kamp. I was hired to shoot the afternoon session and it enjoyed it so much that I returned in the evening with my girlfriend to join in the crowd. Here’s a few photos, lots more can be found on the Beertopia Hong Kong 2013 gallery page.
Newly added to my Gallery pages is a set of photos from LiveVibe Hong Kong 2013. Shot on March 2nd and 3rd, 2013 at the Jockey Club Auditorium at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the shows featured ten dance acts, headlined by the terrific Philippines Allstars. Here’s a few samples, check the gallery page for more!
