Today we got two new wheelie Pelican cases. Well actually they are bloody good China copies, but youd not know it by looking at them, and they were a third the price of the real buggers. Still not cheep though, but much more affordable. Lets see if they last the 15 years of Ikes Pelicans?
I got this one for the cameras and a bigger one for the Visatech lights… all the key equipment is now HARDCASED!
and oh look theres a dog… who could that be?
We just finished a job for Alshahzadi Persian Carpet Gallery. As part of the deal we are the proud new owners of a fine Afgani carpet… I think it is magic!!!
Alshahzadi has an amazing selection of the finest carpets. All are hand made some very old. If you are looking for an investment you can walk on, check them out. 265 Queen’s Road East. Tel: 2834 8396
To shoot these carpets we had to come up with a plan. In the end we worked out that if we laid a roll of white paper on the ground in the street and then shot down from the third floor balcony we would get the desired result. The problem is that we didn’t want to have any perspective distortion. So shooting down on them with a 300mm lens did the trick very nicely…
The Hong Kong tourism board is not going to like this, but if you are a tourist coming to Hong Kong, be warned the months of June, July and August are what we call “rainy season”. Basically what that means is it will be raining MOST days, and when I say raining, I mean RAINING. In other part of the world it is called MONSOON. But please don’t let that put you off visiting, there are plenty of indoor activities to keep you busy, just as long as you like shopping! We love Hong Kong Summer, oh yes!
If it was not bad enough that Sony is contributing to GLOBAL WARMING with their poorly thought out ad campaign. Now they are poluting cyberspace with SPAM. YES Sony is spamming me. I just got a promotional email from
