Hong Kong - A city that never sleeps

Hong Kong - Central at night

This comes from a series that I took whilst wondering the city alone at night pondering the future that heading back to London would hold for me-it felt like a time of transition. But at the same time there was the sense which we all get occaisionally that life is rushing past you and its sometimes so hard to make that jump and get on board.

Kings College PR - Portait

This was a quick shot I had to do today for Kings College PR-the chap in the picture had won a prestigious award as a playwright so I tried to find some element of the basement room we were in to make it look theatrical-the old doors and some overhead lighting started to give it that feeling-but I feel it could have been better with more time.

Hong Kong street scene

This taxi appears to have no driver...

In a pub in blighty

This was a shot taken by a friend of mine from New York. She had the courage to venture south of that big brown and grey thing we call the Thames to say hello. It was shot in one of my locals-I just love the confusion and resignation on my face. I never realised scrabble was such an intense game...

Hong Kong - Surfers

Boxing Day - The Hangover

Christmas Day Hong Kong Style

Shameless-some of them are even related to me!
Lesson learned (again): Greg with camera + drink = Off Camera 'creative' flash...

Been playing around in photoshop with the idea of Tin Type style portrait-this was one of the results.

Trammin' it

The trams are awesome in Hong Kong-for two dollars (about 12pence) you could get from one side of HK island to the other, or at least a good way across. Puts London's £2 for a single bus journey to shame.

Kids-West Bank


Children in Jerusalem

An old one from the summer. Something caught my eye about the kid on the left his solemnity contrasted so strongly with that of the older child in the forefront.

The Times Magazine-portrait shoots

These are two photos I shots for the Times Magazine for an article of theirs about Christmas cards, they were published back on 23rd December 2006. The chap at the top was a secularist and the chap at the bottom email his Christmas cards-a pretty straightforward brief but challenging to make them interesting pictures.

This was taken in a park in Kowloon. The parks in Hong Kong are by and large quite serene places without a hoodlum in sight and a real relaxed atmosphere.

The airport en route to Hong Kong

The trip didn't start too well, because of the heavy fog we had in London at the end of December my flight was delayed for 5 hours which meant I meant my connection in Amsterdam. In the meantime I spotted Chris Rea in the airport but decided against some 'driving home for Christmas' joke...he looked a bit peeved. I guess his flight was delayed too. In the end I flew to Amsterdam, then to Paris and then finally to Hong Kong. All in all I was travelling far more than is fun. Although one major perk was an upgrade on the flight to Hong Kong which meant business class, free champagne, and a three course meal including foie gras and red snapper. very nice. Anyway here are two shots of the good old london pea-souper.

I'm back!

Flew back into London from Hong Kong last night. Would like to say I'm glad to be back but well...my luggage was lost and I have no money...so not really! Plus Hong Kong was such an amazing place to stay, a world away from London; clean, safe, efficient etc etc that coming back was always going to be an anti-climax.
Anyway expect to start seeing some of the pictures from the trip over the coming days. Oh and its very late but what the heck...Happy New Year everybody!
