It’s been a long time coming but it’s finally released! My new book “Portraits of Asia” is a collection of my best and most compelling work from my recent journey around South East Asia. From the hillside villages and farms of Nothern Vietnam to the Orang Asli of Malaysia this book contains colourful, quirky and captivating photos I am very proud of.

Shy child As all of my blogs recently have been image centric I thought I’d take the time out to write a little more and update you on how things are going.

Firstly I can’t emphasise enough how right this adventure is to embark on. Already I’ve produced not only work I’m very proud of but work that has so much substance and meaning. My Photography has compelled my wife and I to push ourselves just that little bit further. Taking longer treks, more missions into the unknown and saying ‘yes’ to a lot more offers. It’s been well worth it as you’ve probably seen!

Sunset Palms Equipment wise I love my choice of camera and lenses all the more so and it’s been well worth dragging them everywhere with me. Trekking trough thick Thai jungle, teetering over rivers on bamboo bridges to hiking up into the hills of Vietnam with the temperature always above 30 degrees.

My Tamrac Adventure 9 bag was without doubt a fantastic purchase and I’ve been able to very comfortably carry all my gear where ever I’ve needed it.

The only casualty has been my speedlight flash. Knocked by a fellow trekker it broke off my camera leaving the hot shoe connector behind while rest fell to the rocky floor half way up a mountain. If vietnam taught me anything it’s that you can always get things fixed on the streets. Sure enough a guy Watch outthat rebuild mobile phones from the parts or dead phones had no problem fixing it with a steady hand and a healthy amount of super glue.

One steep learning curve has been handling the massive amount of work I’m producing on a near daily basis. With my trusty Macbook Pro with me I’ve been able to keep on top of it. Editing has been quick and dare I say fun while making sure my backup regime is strictly adhered to has been all important should the worst happen.

angkor wat Traveling for an extended period of time while simultaneously working has been both a challenge and something i can be very proud of. With over a month left before we settle in Sydney, Australia for a while there’s still a lot more to see and do. I’ll keep you all posted whenever i have Internet access.

As ever your thoughts and comments are very welcome. It would be great to hear from you while I’m ‘on the road’.
