Although I rarely post my personal work on this site nowadays, I thought I would share this. Shooting this week with one of my favourite models, Samantha. We tend to thrive in that kind of chemistry that produces photos of real character. Here, some manual lens work at The Kandid Social, on a day that went from grey to sunny.

Justin Lim Photography - 500px IG Takeover

It is not a bad thing to be busy, although it sometimes means I'm spread a bit too thin. In between shoots for MR PORTER, Shanghai Tang, Mandarin Oriental HK and many more, I was asked to take over the IG page of 500px, the world's fastest growing photography site with 7m dedicated users. Tremendous honour and accolade, and something I'm always very proud to do as an ambassador for HK and wider Asia.

MR PORTER at The Kandid

A recent special commission from worldwide fashion powerhouse MR PORTER in conjunction with Uber and Art Basel HK. Loved shooting this at The Kandid with my full array of props. The subsequent posts on MR PORTER's Instagram generated close to 10k likes.

Emirates - Open Skies, January 2016 Feature

I find it a little strange to be regarded as an "entrepreneur", as my dedication to my photography is my foremost concern, one which I also regard as very much influenced by traditional artistry rather than entrepreneurial endeavours. Nonetheless, I am extremely honoured to be featured by Emirates Airlines for the month of January 2016 in their Open Skies in-flight magazine. It's definitely a nod to some of the more diverse projects I've been conducting via The Kandid, which have been interesting detours from my typical wedding and baby briefs.

Bottega Veneta Cruise Collection

Bottega Veneta 2015 Cruise Collection, shot by Justin Lim at The Kandid

It has been a very busy few months, but would just like to tell you about this recent shoot I did at The Kandid for Bottega Veneta and Lifestyle Asia.

To see the feature, click here. It's wonderful to be creating, styling and shooting for brands of this calibre, who really appreciate that photography is one aspect to a great shot, but styling is another facet entirely. Luckily the studio now supports both!

The Kandid - Home Journal 2015

I'm delighted to let you know that my photography and social hub have both been featured in this month's edition of Home Journal magazine. I photographed an 8-page feature on small plants, which took place entirely at my own workspace, The Kandid. This shoot saw names such as Ovo Hotels and Quest Terrarium visit my little hub. A very cool shoot indeed.
