Hong Kong’s fishing industry

I recently worked on a story about Hong Kong’s dying fishing industry with my friend and AFP colleague Issam Ahmed. Below are a small selection of some of my photos that went with Issam’s text, an example of which can be read by clicking any of the pics. They were taken when I was still living on Hong Kong island, so was able to arrive at 4am in order to catch the fish being prepared for market. Really looking forward to see what kind of features I can work on from living on Lamma.

Christmas in Hong Kong

I was happy to learn from my colleagues that one of my photos was the first in a list of 40 Christmas pics featured by The Atlantic. You can see the slideshow by clicking on the screen grab below. A few other photos from the shoot are below the screen grab.

Crossings

I was shooting for work today for the first time in a long while. Took a while to get warmed up but I eventually got some pics that I quite liked, including this one.
