Simply Asia

As a photographer it’s a great experience to walk into shops, homes, book-stores, mag stands or drive by billboards and see your work. To realise that your work has been viewed millions and millions of times, is sometimes a bit daunting! I’ve been shooting magazines for more than 11 years, advertising, stock, books, PR releases, bands, etc etc etc. Some mags that I’ve been published in has 1 000 000+ readers per week.Even the internet these days supply me with surprises!

R, the groom, especially set a high bar for grooms to follow. It helps if someone is just that little bit more trusting of your skills!
