Two of My Favourite Photographers, a Travel Scrap book and Envy

Category : Photography, Travel · (6) Comments April 29, 2014

For a long time I have revelled in Michael Turek’s beautiful images in Harper’s Bazaar, so one of the nicest things about going to Cambodia for the magazine was that I got to know Michael a bit. Not only is he one of my favourite photographers ever, but also an extremely generous person. And now I discover that he has made a travel scrapbook. And if you haven’t already gathered that I love books, well, I do. I really love them. So I thoroughly enjoyed checking out his scrapbook, and I’m sure you will too.

On the subject of my favourite photographers, this week I was very inspired by a post by another of my favourite photographers, US wedding photographer Jasmine Star, on the subject of envy http://www.jasminestarblog.com/index.cfm?postID=1864&jealous-of-an-industry-peer . If you’ve ever envied anyone professionally (and let’s face it, who hasn’t?), or indeed at all, you should definitely read it.

Below is a picture of me contemplating, or perhaps, envying some lotus flowers at the beautiful hotel, La Residence d’Angkor, in Siem Reap. The photo doesn’t really show the awesome make up which make up artist Siwan Hill www.siwanhill.com created, but you’ll just have to take my word for it. Photo by my friend, Natalie Gillen.

Cambodia was fascinating. It was full on though; I was shooting in 50 degrees heat / humidity. Michael is amazing, isn’t he?

Hallo Fiona.
I love scrapbooks. They are such a fabulous way to tell a story. I also love Cambodia. I love that it is full on and in your face. I love the humour of the people who have experienced so much adversity, I love the beautiful landscape and the wonderful food. Possibly my favourite country. Reading about your adventures makes me want to go back. Soon.
