I’ve just wrapped up a particularly productive 10 day shoot for the Sheraton in Fiji. Two properties – The Sheraton Tokoriki Island Resort and The Fiji Sheraton.

The Brief: Concentrate on activities and lifestyle shots as the main resort’s about to undergo a multi-million dollar renovation. We’re shooting mainly for the family market so include plenty of kids having a good time.

Here’s a short preview of some of the pics:

Next Stop: The Solomon Islands (Phew, the last of six back-to-back assignments).

I’m just winding up a shoot for Loloata Private Island Resort – about an hour out of Papua New Guinea’s capital, Port Moresby.

The main feature was the pool area, the surrounding dive sites and, I’m afraid, those damn desserts which saw the death of my 19-day-old Keto diet.

It was a productive shoot. Here’s a small selection of the images captured:

I’m just back from a 12 day cruise to PNG with Coral Expeditions – and what a pleasure it was. From Cairns, up through the country’s eastern islands and along its north-coast as far as the Sepik River, finishing up in Madang.

Here’s a short preview of some of the images captured.

It wasn’t even a commission. I was there for a few days doing a press-check on my new coffee table book, and I barely remembered to take a camera with me on the way out.

But, as you can see, it ended up getting a fair workout.

What an amazing city – the colonial buildings, the modern architecture, the food, the incredible Gardens by the Bay, the pot-pouri of cultures – China Town, Little India. Just a delight to photograph (and I hardly got started).

Following is a short preview of some of the photographs we’ve uploaded to the new Singapore Gallery in my commercial photo library (www.davidkirklandphotography.com).

I’ll look forward to returning in 2020.

Next Stop: A cruise assignment of Papua New Guinea with Coral Expeditions. I leave next week.

I’m just back from an assignment of Fiji with South Sea Cruises, and I’m frantically getting ready to head to Singapore to press check my next coffee table book.

A week back and it’s off to Papua New Guinea on another cruise assignment (Coral Expeditions), followed by a resort shoot while I’m up there, then an assignment in the Solomon Islands which should see me done for what has been a pretty busy year.

Here’s a short preview of the productive cruise shoot I just returned from (largely due to a clear Brief, a comprehensive Shot List and, thankfully, good weather):

I’ve just done three days of shooting for The Sheraton and Marriott in Fiji, before heading off on a seven day assignment for South Sea Cruises, and I thought I’d start with a few editorial-style photos before going to my regular tourism fare (the editorial pics tend to be the ones that have been given a bit of attention in post production and are more suited to magazine usage).
