PHOTOGRAPHY

We’ve photographed hotels, restaurants, cafes, and bars for some of the best magazines and travel guides in the world. Unlike many photographers working in this field we try to make our photography natural and inviting, so it not just works for you, but it will satisfy magazines, newspapers or websites who ask you for your images.

RESTAURANTS

On assignment we’ll shoot two restaurants a day. We know how to make beautiful photos of your food, your chef, your room, and your staff. Our images have appeared in magazines worldwide, but we’re also proud of the stock images we’ve produced for restaurants that get used by the same magazines.

CAFES

We are coffee-lovers too. And we adore a good café. Capturing the vibrancy of a café is something we love to do, from the coffee machine to close-ups of latte art, the only thing we won’t be able to capture are the aromas. We shoot in a casual, editorial style so that each image will have you feeling that you’re there.

BARS

We love a good drink. A negroni is our idea of relaxing. But that’s for after the photo shoot. We’ll make sure your bar looks its best and your drinks beautifully backlit. We love a challenge and whether your bar is a beachside beauty or a dark late-night venue, we’ll capture the feel of it. Then have a drink…

HOTELS

We love the challenge of a hotel shoot. From the foyer to the rooms, the relaxation amenities and the F&B outlets, we’ll cover it in a style that is warm and alive — not that stiff, overlit and sterile look that was once in vogue. Magazines and newspapers will actually want to run your stock photos…

DESTINATIONS

Having photographed countless travel guidebooks over the years, we understand the kinds of images that help promote a destination. Sights, activities, sports, beaches, people, food, and drink outlets — we know how to cover a destination in a style that’s consistent and we consistently deliver the goods.

  • View of Hue's lovely Thanh Toan covered Japanese bridge from another village bridge. Now if younger influencers/bloggers took that shot they'd be putting themselves in the boat with their back to the camera because they didn't grow up in a time when cinema was still the greatest art, humans were still visually literate, and they understood the concept of point of view and that we didn't have to see the back of somebody, centre frame, to feel what they were feeling. Sigh... I'm still sharing pics from that 22-day Vietnam Culinary Tour I hosted a couple of months ago as I'm currently tweaking the itinerary. So yep this is a #latergram 2018 dates coming very soon but expressions of interest being taken now.

  • The pretty Thanh Toan covered Japanese bridge crosses a canal in an old village around 8kms east of Hue. The story goes that it was commissioned by the wife of a Mandarin in the 18th century. As she was childless and had no descendants to leave offerings for her, after her death the villagers established a public shrine in the bridge to repay her for her generosity. There's a small museum of agriculture nearby where you can learn about rice farming among other things, which we'll check out on our next trip.

  • I'm tweaking our Vietnam Culinary Tour and locking in some fantastic experiences we did with our travel partners there. I loved the day we spent exploring all the temples and tombs around Huế. This handsome building is in the leafy grounds of the Pagoda of the Celestial Lady or Thien Mu Pagoda, a round seven-storey pagoda that's the symbol of the city. It was built in 1601 in a pine forest on a hill overlooking the Perfume River and you get to enjoy wonderful views of it from a boat cruise. I'll share a pic soon.

  • Our new Cambodia food tour is focused on the handmade, home-cooked and hands-on. You’ll observe living culinary traditions at risk of disappearing, do four Cambodian cooking classes, including lessons in Cambodian barbecue and traditional desserts in a local home, and try your hand at everything from making fermented rice noodles to crafting Khmer cocktails. At the request of a Grantourismo reader, we’ve created a new small-group Cambodia Food Tour for eight nights from Saturday 25 November to Saturday 2 December. That means you can leave home on Friday, fly into Siem Reap in Cambodia on Saturday, fly out the following Sunday morning – and you’ll only need to take five days off work. Two spots have just gone so get in touch ASAP iif you're interested! Book now for 10% discount, VIP airport fast track service, a 60 minute massage and a culinary gift pack.

  • NEW POST: Our Vietnamese deep fried spring rolls recipe for nem ran, as they’re known in Hanoi and Northern Vietnam is a classic and it’s easy to make. Crunchy and chewy with a bubbly surface, these Hanoi-style fried spring rolls are eaten with bun cha or wrapped in lettuce and fresh herbs. They're also fantastic on their own. More correctly called nem rán Hà Nội in the capital and northern Vietnam, they're known as cha gio (chả giò) in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) and southern Vietnam. This is the fourth in a series of Vietnamese spring roll recipes I started sharing after returning from Vietnam in July where I’d hosted our first 22-day Culinary Tour. Announcing dates for another trip very soon. #vietnam #asia #travel #food #traveller #foodie #foodies #foodietravel #foodtravel #culinarytravel #culinaryjourneys #grantourismotravels #vietnamculinarytour #vietnamesefood #streetfood #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #thekitcn #food52 #feedfeed #recipe #recipes #springrolls #homecooking #cooking #cookingtime
  • This old guy at Battambang's main market was taking his turmeric sorting very seriously when I took this sneaky shot of him a few months ago. I've felt a bit like him in recent days - a lot of work to get through and so focused on getting it all done. I've been so oblivious to what's going on around me, I missed the earthquake in Mexico (a country we have a long intimate attachment to, so sending muchos abrazos). I've also been forgetting to drink my tea and water, so I think my throbbing headache is the result of both caffeine withdrawal and dehydration. My headache is nothing compared to the suffering in the world right now: the kids killed in the school that collapsed in Mexico City, the tragedies that are the Rohingya crisis and conflict in Yemen, where 17 million are facing famine, not to mention the people of Bangladesh, Nepal and India, who experienced the heaviest floods in a decade - over 1,000 dead and around 40 million people (that's not a typo) lost their homes, businesses or crops. Yet those crises are largely being ignored by Western media - and social media - which is so focused on the hurricanes and floods in the US and Caribbean. This is not to diminish those events; they're all awful and deserve some of our attention. But I think now more than ever, it's important that we look beyond our backyards to see how we can help, even in little ways, those who are in desperate need. #helpingothers #altruism #givingback #philanthropy

  • Dinner: Terence's wonderful larb moo - Thai minced pork salad. I ate half the Mussaman gai (Thai Muslim chicken curry) before I thought to take a photo. It was leftovers from the night before and even more heavenly the second night. Terence has been cooking Thai food for so long that I realized I take for granted that it's going to taste as incredible as it does. #thaifood #thai #thaicooking #cooking #homecooking #larb #curry #currychicken #cookingtime #food #foodporn #foodie #foodstagram #foodography #foodpicture #foodlover
  • A charming mural demonstrating the Khmer 'sampeah', where each variation of the prayer-like greeting signifies a greater level of respect, depending upon age or status. The gesture is Hindu in origin, dating back to Cambodia's pre Angkor period and Funan Kingdom, which went through a period of Indianisation from the first century AD onward that had a great influence over everything from the architecture and art to the cuisine and culture. In Thailand, much of which was part of the Khmer Empire for centuries, the gesture is called the 'wai'. Locals don't expect visitors to Cambodia to use it, but they appreciate it when you do, as it's a sign of respect and interest in their culture. We teach our tour participants the sampeah and some basic greetings and vocabulary to make their experience all the more engaging and enriching. not join us on one of our Cambodia food tours?
