Adam Robert Young's final Oi Cover September 12

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 […]

Oi Vietnam July cover - Adam Robert Young July 21

Those were the days – photography for the July issue

I won’t water it down: this month sucked bigtime! Just like any other job, there are times when everything is great and you’re loving it. There are also times when all you want to do is find a boulder, dig a hole under it and crawl in never to emerge again. This month was the […]

Vietnamese sand art June 30

Vietnamese sand art

But… For each of those places there’s another less famous spot that’s even better. OK, the War Remnants museum is […]

Color Me Run Saigon 2014 April 28

Color Me Run – Ho Chi Minh City, 2014.

(All images © 2014 Adam Robert Young, all rights reserved) Thousands of people, even more bags of brightly coloured powder and a 5 kilometer run. This could only end in really pretty disaster!

Recent work – the random nature of magazine photography

Just thought I’d share some snaps from the last two issues to show the range of photos I’ve been called on to take for Oi Vietnam over the last two months. Some are more fun than others, but if anything, I’m learning to be more and more versatile! If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll […]
