Portrait of Think Tank director, Bastian Giegerich

A recent portrait of Dr Bastian Giegerich, the Director-General and Chief Executive of The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) at their offices in London.  These are the guys that hold the Shangri-La Dialogue every year.  It was a classic portrait and interview assignment with Germany’s Der Spiegel, meaning some quick portraits before or after (usually) the interview and then some engaged shots during the interview, such as the below. 

Published in De Volkskrant

My photo series on the resilience of the anchovy fisherman on the west coast of Sri Lanka was published in Holland’s well respected media, De Volkskrant. I’m very happy with the layouts and grouping of portraits. To see a gallery of this photo series please visit my Anchovy fishermen photo essay.  I have contacts available on the ground to be interviewed and a local writer if needed. 

Elephant conflict work published in Dein Spiegel

My photo essay on the ongoing Human Elephant Conflict in Sri Lanka was published as a feature in Germany’s largest childrens magazine, Dein Spiegel. While working with a Sri Lankan NGO in central Sri Lanka a focussed some of my time on the ‘Elefriendly Bus’ - A fully funded and free bus for school children to take them to and from school in an area where wild roaming elephants are not uncommon.  Many thanks to the Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society
