Inspiration for our next shooting

Thinking with your hands: A link between gesturing and intelligence.

Hand gestures as a reflection of our thoughts is taking all my attention.
I have always been interested to hear about my friends and clients real opinion.  That is probably why I prefer to just have a coffee talk rather than a call.


Here is a teaser for our next shooting

MARIJOLI on location

Last week, I enjoyed spending a warm, sun-drenched afternoon shooting a style piece for one of Hong Kong's leading magazines.

Set to hit newsstands some time in April, the photo shoot took place at my home in Clearwater Bay.

The complex is starting to come to life and take shape. Here are a few behind-the-scenes snaps...
