Melbourne Taipei Kyoto


I’ll be going to Melbourne Australia (16th Feb to 3rd Mar) and then Taipei Taiwan (5th to 11th Mar), then to Kyoto until May or June. I’ll be available to do travel portraits if you’re in either city, and of course I’ll be happy to do commercial work.

This photo is from my film era, way back in 2002 to 2005 when I lived in Taiwan. It was taken on 35mm film with my old Minolta film camera. I can’t wait to go back and get new photos taken with upgraded… skills. 😄 Any suggestions on where I should go? What I should see and do?
