Notes From The Road – Penang

This morning I’m packing up and getting ready to fly back to Singapore. It’s been a long and tiring week and I feel like I’ve grown a lot as a photographer this week.

Photographing Thaipusam was hard work. On Monday I was up before 5.30am and didn’t get to bed till after 2am the next day. On Tuesday I was out before 10am and got back to the hotel just before 10pm. I was then up on Thursday morning between 1.30am and 6am to photograph the final celebrations. There’s also been plenty of other side trips, to explore Penang, eat out & even a brief model shoot.

That’s a lot of time photographing, but, interestingly, I took far fewer images than on the recent Within The Frame workshop in Oaxaca.

Model Shoot

Next week I’ll have more to share; two stories related to Thaipusam and a little photo-essay on the final night’s procession. But, before that, I need to get home, have my back seen to, rest and get some good sleep.

Fernando, Glad you made the time to come with us. It is always good to hang with you. I am always challenged by your work and by our conversations.

    Matt – thank you again for the workshop and all the preparatory work. I’m glad my presence added something useful to the week. I hope we can hang out and shoot again sometime.
