Fuji X-Pro2, 50mm, f/5.6, 1/60s, ISO 640
Models: Michel, Anaïs
This shot was probably the most fun to shoot during the Unknown Armies session. Anaïs was so much into it that the drill bit actually hurt Michel a bit, so his frightened expression is not entirely fake.

Anaïs was an absolute trooper that evening, ready to try every crazy idea I had for deranging shots, and even suggesting a good few herself. This is one I like a lot (again, an outtake from the main thing, but one that gives a very different feel from the submitted shot.) This is also the only shot that I submitted without any texturing or grunging up, the light was just so great naturally.

Another weird Unknown Armies outtakes shot, going for a kind of Clive Barker vibe but always with this disturbing contrast between the softness of the light and the harshness of the subject.
Piles of Cash
Fujifilm XPR2, 90mm, f/10, 1/15s, ISO 200
One thing you quickly realize living in China is that in a (mostly) cash based society, you end up with a lot of loose change in your pockets. I put 1Y coins in a couple of bowls in my office, and they’re pretty darn full by now. But it’s nice if you want to shoot money…

One of the things I’ve been shooting in that little lightbox of mine lately has been my daughter’s toys. This is a rainbow teddy bear I got for her in Thailand (I think). I like the way the white background makes the bright colours explode.
Hot, hot, hot!
Fuji xpro2, 90mm, f/13, 1/5s, ISO 200
I’ve been doing a fair bit of still life photography lately, particularly for a book on Chinese fruits and vegetables to be released this summer. When we were buying the subjects in a wet market near my home, I couldn’t resist buying a bunch of really red peppers. This is one of the shots of these peppers.
