A little something to fill the space

What is this “space”? The empty hole in my heart? My soul? The final frontier? Sorry, couldn’t resist. Here’s a photo of Kristy from last year.

It isn’t often that I get a chance to work with a model like Kristy; I remember seeing her work years ago that made me think, “I want to take photographs like that, of people like that”. I couldn’t turn down the chance to work with her, even though at the time, there were some serious personal upheavals in my life. My head, really. I’ll leave that for another day, but I am glad we managed to get some good work done that day.

More soon. Hopefully.


It’s been a while

Apparently it’s been almost three months since I last posted. I am sorry for the borderline criminal neglect, and I’m afraid not all the reasons for this lack of updates are reasonable–life happens, shit happens–and I’ll just leave it at that. 

I’ve still got a backlog of photos to clear, and a ton of film to develop. In the meantime, here’s a photo of Sara Scarlet, who dropped by Singapore recently; I never miss an opportunity to work with her, and her being an awesome person to hang out with is just the cherry on top. 

More soon.


Need to make more portraits

I’ve been out of commission for a while; as it turns out, breaking a toe can be a real downer. It’s healed for the most part, though the occasional twinges remain disconcerting, a throbbing reminder of middle age. I’ve managed to photograph a model since then, and there will be more photos soon.

In the meantime, here is one of Roarie taken last year. Few things tickle my fancy more than straightforward portraiture—whatever honesty I can wring out of myself and my subject that makes it click in my head, and hopefully, it does the same for the person I worked with.

Plus, it’s in black and white, and a square format. What’s not to like?


Sara Scarlet circa 2015

A quick photo post while I work my momentum up again, no thanks to some unfortunate events. More soon. This photo of Sara was taken after our workshop a couple of years ago, and it’s aged rather well. She’ll be back for another trip soon, and I’m working on details for another workshop, so stay tuned.


Nisshi Vol. V now available

After 3 long years, I’ve finally finished Nisshi Vol. V; it’s now available for free digital download at MagCloud, or if you wish to support my work, you can purchase printed copies for US$15 each. Previously I brought in printed copies for sale, but I figured I don’t intend to make money from this and all I wanted was to get the work out, so it’s less stressful thinking about costs this way. 

For those who use the MagCloud app, you can find and view it in the app itself. The rest of us will have to be satisfied with the PDF e-zine which can be viewed from practically any device. I’d recommend a laptop or a larger screen than a phone, but it shouldn’t matter. 

I’ve got plenty of material for at least a couple more volumes, and it shouldn’t take me another 3 years to publish the next one, knock on wood. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy it.
