On Assignment | Beijing

I’m back from another shoot, this time in Beijing. As someone who is OBSESSED with lanterns (clearly), I couldn’t get enough of walking around the streets of the city on my last night there. Beijing’s speciality is roast duck pancakes, and I managed to eat duck every day for the 3 days I was there……. I may start quacking soon.
 

Anyway, I’m back in the country for a few days before heading off on Friday to Mexico for a month, starting off with Jose Villa’s Photography Workshop which I’m beyond excited about. I can’t wait to learn from one of the world’s very top wedding photographers, and I’m hoping it will further improve my work in the future.
 

Sadly I’m never allowed to publish the photographs from my celebrity photo shoots for Madame Tussauds, but here are a selection of my own personal pictures from the little time I had to explore Beijing between shoots:
