Hong Kong Cityscape

On my last trip to Hong Kong I rode the ferry for the first time and completely fell in love. There’s just something utterly calming and romantic about being on a ferry. Or I may just have that impression from years of watching Grey’s Anatomy. I especially love that it was a cool and cloudy day. Some would say gloomy, I say mysterious. I do enjoy cloudy days.

Hong Kong: Urban Bakery

Decided to make a little travel diary from my recent Hong Kong trip. I love discovering new restaurants, especially if that restaurant has amazing interiors and equally amazing food!

Enter Urban Bakery, we were starving, looking for a place to park ourselves and eat when we saw this eye-catching, black and white tiled, neon lit oasis. And the smell of the food they were serving instantly had me hooked.

I didn’t get to sample the desserts but check out the fun names! Definitely curious as to whats in a See You In Hell cake.

I had the Langoustine Croissantwich. I had never had langoustine before and it was delicious! But a cold sandwich and it must be the asian in me that just needs something hot during meals. My friend had the Duck Confit which was also really good. Would definitely recommend this place if you’re in the area!

Summer Sun: WAGW

It’s summer and once again I had another sunny shoot for WAGW. That’s one of the perks of living in a tropical country, clear blue skies and beach weather almost year round.

Shot at Best Western Plus Lex in Cebu City.

Summer is here! To celebrate, we hopped on a boat and got to shooting! With my favourite model and the big blue ocean it was a beautiful day.

Everything was shot with the Fuji XE-1. I’ve really grown to love this camera.  Perfect for travelling or when you just can’t be bothered with luging around all your gear.

Detalia and Accessoria

 

 

In line with the theme of stepping out of my comfort zone, I recently did a shoot for a local furniture manufacturer, Detalia. And for their line of accessories (lamps, vases, etc.) Accessoria. I’ve done product photography before but never on this large a scale. It was a lot of fun though, really helps when you’re working with creative individuals who know what they want but are willing to let you experiment at the same time. Here are some of my favorites from the shoot.
