Recent work: Multimedia piece for Oxfam Australia

Recently I shot a photo story for Oxfam Australia in Lombok, Indonesia. I also edited the images as a multimedia slideshow, including additional video footage and audio recordings.

It is always interesting to work with multimedia and to see how certain photos, that might not be powerful enough to be used individually, take a strong role once they get added to a sequence.

Today’s office: Jakarta, Indonesia

Today I’m shooting an editorial story at a factory outside Jakarta, Indonesia.

I had been taking pictures for a while when I ran into this:

"Sorry, absolutely no photography"

“Sorry, absolutely no photography”

I guess rules can be broken when you’re touring the factory with the founder and CEO.

Today’s office: Jakarta, Indonesia

Today I’m shooting corporate headshots in a studio in South Jakarta.

I’ll be using two different setups: one to get a pure white background (large softbox, reflector panel, background lights and hair/rim light) and another one to get soft light and a dark graded background (large softbox and reflector panel).
