Last week in Sydney I got the chance to get our for a short walk… I held a photowalk on my last trip to Sydney but had such a busy schedule this time I didn’t have time.   I did have a little time to continue with my $10 Head Shots for Charity project.  I shot about 60 head shots and collected $750 for Tabitha Cambodia and with my company’s match that’s $1,500!   That brings the current running total to $14,500.   That money goes a really long way to helping Tabitha.   Thank you to everyone who participated.

Putting aside the fund raising I have met some really cool people in my workplace that I might have never had the opportunity to engage and speak with.  If you are a photographer and are looking to connect with others, raise some money, or both, then this is a great way to do it.

This was hopefully my last business trip of the year so soon I can post my series from this year;  ‘Out my hotel window’.  I am stealing the project idea from my friend Humphrey who also works in IT and travels extensively across Asia Pacific.

This year’s travels brought me from Tokyo to Hong Kong to Beijing to Singapore to Phnom Penh to Singapore to Phnom Penh to Hong Kong to Boston to San Francisco to Sydney to Singapore to San Francisco to Las Vegas and finally this trip to Sydney.   Believe it or not this was actually a slow year for travel for me.

Out my hotel window

I got an email from a colleague who was also in Sydney on business  and heard I was a photographer.   I had a crazy schedule so we decided to meet up at 6:30 AM for a photowalk before starting work.   I was staying in the Central Business District and the streets can get pretty crowded so it was nice to get out and shoot in the early morning empty streets.

I was featured in 日本カメラ (Japan Camera) this month in the Tokyo Camera Style section.  If you haven’t checked out the site Tokyo Camera Style you should.   It is awesome!   We were stopped while out shooting for the Bruce Gilden Workshop.
