I recently did some work for the UK edition of National Geographic Traveller magazine for their city life piece on Taipei. It’s available in bookstores and on newsstands now and covers a few of the highlights of Taipei. Check it out if you get a chance.
Reader’s Digest Asia have just released their annual Asian of the Year issue. I was commissioned by them to photograph Taiwanese humanitarian Chang Ping-I for the cover and lead feature. I’m going to have a full write up of the assignment in the winter 2012 newsletter that will be released in the first week of December. Make sure you subscribe in the upper right of the sidebar so you don’t miss it.
The Community Services Center in Taipei has just released the November edition of their excellent publication, Centered on Taipei. It goes out to the international community in Taiwan each month and inside is a regular column I write offering some simple photography tips for photographers of all levels. This month I’m concentrating on food photography so pick up a copy for yourself today. It’s distributed in various locations around Taiwan as well as being available as a PDF in their magazine archive on the website. My article is on page 22 and there’s plenty of other great content as well.
Towards the end of last year I was commissioned by the team at tetjobs.com for a couple of photography assignments, shooting portraits of the company owners and later photographing some of the teachers that they represent both in and out of the classroom. They also licensed some general travel stock images of Taiwan from my archive. They’ve just released a promotional video featuring a lot of this work which you can see below. If you or anyone you know has ever considered becoming an English teacher in Taiwan, get in touch with them.
Towards the end of last year I shot a series of images for Taiwan English Teaching Jobs. The company provides recruitment and placement services for teachers and schools throughout Taiwan. Their new website has just been launched featuring a variety of photographs. Spread over a couple of days, we covered some corporate portraits of the company owners, as well as some shots of their teachers in the classroom plus a few lifestyle images. I also provided them some generic stock for their website. Check them out if you’re thinking of coming to Taiwan.
