Lifestyle

Chengdu’s reputation cannot be found on the “hardworker’s” section of the library.

The people, here, are well known as lazy… they prefer to call it “relaxed atmosphere” but in fact they really are inmune to stress.

Here it is an unforgetable shot of a so called street vendor … rush hour and one of the most frequented places in Chengdu….

you have to imagine Freddie Mercury singing “It’s a hard life”, when he says:

Life is tough – on your own
Now I’m waiting for something to fall from the skies
And I’m waiting for love

Unformal Food

Dear Friend,

sometimes firends and family ask me about what i eat and they cant avoid some typical questions …

have you tried dog meat?

Well, I am a dog lover, i have a dog that i treat like my daughter, but i’ve been living too long in China to successfully avoid eating dog. So … yes, I have tried dog meat

PS: I was on an official work duty, i couldn’t be unpolite and tell them they are a bunch of savages

PS 2: when i came back home, i apologised to my dog, i felt like i ate her cousin for a while

PS 3: ….she forgave me


Corporate food – Asian

Fancy some asian food?

Today I present you an originally indonesian dish: Beef Satay

This dish is so famous that Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand consider it also their national dish.

PS: this is beef, but there are more fancy versions made of turtle, snake, lizard, horse or even crocodile…


Corporate food

Dear friends,

lets talk about food…

Recently the best italian restaurant in Chengdu changed his menu and they used … my pics

I haven’t seen the result, not sure of the design of the menu, just know that the photos look great like the food, basically…

From that shooting we use an expression at the studio:  “The pumking rice”

(have you ever tried to make look a pumkin rissotto on a picture, that’s a challenge and not putting the man on the moon)

Maybe one day I show you the results, just maybe


Corporate food

Today i miss a spanish delicatessen, the “Jamon Iberico” (Spanish ham)

I don’t really remember when was the last time i ate Jamon, but it was long time ago…

Today i rescue a food picture of an italian Ham “San Daniel”, an exquisite Ham as good as the spanish pata negra.

PS: Do you know that Jamon in portuguese is called “presunto” ..and presunto in spanish means “presumed” … I guess is because someones “presumes” it tastes the same … guilty as charge


Corporate food

Who’s hungry?

Here is a new section, food photography.

Some photographers say that if you can make food look good on a picture, you can shoot anything; the truth is that the texture of the food is something really difficult to catch with the camera.

Can a picture stimulate the stomach?

Today’s starter:  Dim Sum

Pictures from the shooting of the collection “Samantha Resort & Spa” – Zhangjiajie – Hunan Province
