An assisgnment I had for Qantas Airlines last year has just been published in their Travel Insider magazine. Together with the chef, Nino Zoccalli, of the Pendolino restaurant in Sydney, his sommelier Cristian, and the South African writer Catherine Marshall, we made a trip from Naples down through the Amalfi Coast and on to the vineyards of Pugli and Lecce.
Here’s a small sample …
A book I worked on last year with the writer Alessandra Dammone has just been published. Sweet Venice (ed. Sime Books) with 80 or so recipes, looks at the culture of ‘pasticerie’ in Venice and the surrounding area. It took me about three months, on and off, to cover all the material and it was shot in various locations around the city including Cafe Florian and the lovely Bauer Hotel.
This is a story I shot earlier in the summer down in Tuscany for the German magazine, Traveller’s World. I spent a wonderful couple of days at the Ornellaia winery in Tuscany, one of the most prestigious producers in the country. Apart from the great wine and hospitality, they also commission an international artist each year to produce an artwork based around a bottle as well as a permanent installation at the winery.
Some new interiors for the flooring company, Corà. This time around Verona and Asiago.
Probably one of the hardest subjects I’ve ever had to photograph, metallic wall coverings and mirrors in an installation as part of the Venice Biennale for Edge Collections in the USA. It was hot and it was a technical nightmare, but the client was happy.
Last week I was on a commission for the US magaine, Wine Spectator, including two days in a luxury villa and a trip from the north of Italy down to Tuscany by helicopter. Great fun and some beautiful locations. I’ll post the article once it’s been published.
Earlier this year I made some new iages for Palm Gallery Hotel, a lovely boutique hotel in the centre of Rome. Their new website is now online and looking good.
Good to see Mardegan Legno making nice use of my images on their social media sites recently. The new catalogue should be out pretty soon.
I was back in Hungary last week to shoot some new material for the wooden flooring company, Mardegan Legno. I was working together with the guys from Liquid Diamond to produce a new brochure and website for the company. It wil be published in September.
Qantas Airlines in-flight magazine in Australia has just published a feature I shot in Venice for them last month. It explores the quieter side of the city. I even discovered some new places myself.
