Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is an amazing up and coming city. This time lapse is a culmination of 10,000 RAW images and multiple shoots capturing some of the cities relentless energy and pace of change.
Everyone who has visited Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam knows part of the magic (love it or hate it) is in the traffic. Ever since I first set foot in HCMC I have been captivated by the cities energy. Saigon is a city on the move unlike anything I have experienced before which I wanted to capture and share.
Thanks to everyone who helped with the film and thanks also to the numerous kind people who allowed me access to some amazing locations.

On November 2013, we went for the third time in Asia, this time to immerse ourselves in the nature and the slow pace of Laos.
A journey of a month that has brought us almost back in time, between relaxed people who live to the rhythm of the sun, small villages built on winding roads, dust, coffee powder, waterfalls and unspoilt nature.
Discovering a simple life, made of smiles, peace and happiness between the banks of the Mekong.
