Ballet dancers in Saigon December 31

Goodbye Vietnam (I’ll be back)…

So my time living full-time in Asia has come to an end. I have now settled back in Australia – in Brisbane to be exact. This retrospective post about my time living in Ho Chi Minh City is long overdue! After three attempts at writing this post, I’ve come to the conclusion that I will […]

One door closes – the end of my time with Oi Vietnam

OK, this is certainly not new news, but news I can’t neglect to share here any longer… I am no longer working as staff photographer for Oi Vietnam. While there are stories floating around that I am returning to Australia very soon, I will not be leaving Vietnam until the end of the year or […]

It was a fun two hours of shooting, and I also had fun seeing the inventive […]

Multitasker - by Adam Robert Young February 23

Multitasker

When given the task of taking a photo for an article on “a day in the life of a magazine editor”, I immediately visualised something like an Hindu god with many arms doing ten things at once.
