Insects In The Backyard for Bloomberg Pursuits









These were from a shoot last week at Insects In The Backyard, a new restaurant in Bangkok featuring insects in a fine dining setting. The full slideshow can be viewed here:

FAO and other international organizations have been advocating the consumption of insects for decades, pointing to their compelling nutritional and environmental benefits. Until recently this has not been sufficient to bring insects onto the plates of mainstream diners. But this is changing. Top level global restaurants such as Noma and Nordic Food Lab have taken the consumption of insects to the highest culinary levels. Recent documentaries, namely Nordic Food Lab’s ‘Bugs’, and Angelina Jolie’s promotion of insects as a sustainable food source have made bugs hip. They are no longer the rural snack your great auntie may have enjoyed. They are now the hero of the dish. And bugs can be beautiful.  


Clemens Schick for History Channel









I was in Siem Reap, Cambodia recently shooting behind the scenes and portraits of German actor Clemens Schick for History Channel. Thanks Getty for the hook up!

Battambang, Cambodia for Bloomberg













Some recent stuff I shot in lovely Battambang, Cambodia for Bloomberg 

Elephant Tourism for Getty












These were shot at Nongnooch village in Pattaya for Getty. Sad to see this kind of stuff is still going on here. BBC reports that "Millions of people want selfies riding elephants, or washing them, or patting their trunks. But according to a study carried out by World Animal Protection (WAP) across Asia this is helping to fuel a rise in elephants captured from the wild and kept for entertainment. The number in Thailand has increased by almost a third over the last five years."

Had loads of fun at this commercial shoot I did for Thai Union, part of it was to create images for their dog food campaign. Here's a couple outtake pics, this dog was probably the most challenging subject I've ever worked with! Thanks to AsiaWorks for the opportunity!
