I’m a cross-cultural communicator. As an American photographer and filmmaker based in Asia for nearly three decades, I understand the needs of American and European clients and at the same time understand how to get the job done in Asia. I have photographed in nearly every country in Asia, and very extensively in Singapore, China, and India.
For the past 20 years, I’ve specialized in shooting corporate annual reports in Asia for clients from the US. I’ve worked with some of the largest corporations in the world, lighting some of the most difficult locations you can imagine. While I continue to shoot annual reports, my main focus has shifted to creating visuals for the hotel, resort, and travel industries, photographing beautiful people in beautiful places.
Over the past year, I’ve added motion to the mix and am rediscovering my original love for photography by learning about the moving image and the creative challenges that it brings. This now allows me to create a unified body of work for my clients – incorporating both still and motion images – to tell a clear story across multiple media and delivery platforms.
