Passionate Photographer Lost in Asia --|-- www.highlanderimages.com
Introduction
Stuart Taylor of HighlanderImages Photography provides professional freelance photography services focused primarily on Asia and with a documentary and photojournalistic style. Stuart is available for a variety individual assignments or projects such as documentary, photojournalism, commercial, architectural, real estate, industrial, interior design, corporate, or travel photography and can offer some advanced techniques such as HDR (High Dynamic Range) and Panoramic Photography in conjunction with comprehensive post-processing capabilities. 

                      | --------------------------- |

Photojournalism & Documentary Photography
Preparing images for a documentary or for journalistic requirements requires detailed research about the subject and some dedicated time onsite to capture required images to fulfill the storyline. As they often say "A picture is worth a thousand words" and certainly in the preparation of any story the images are usually the main driving force and can create the most impact. For many photojournalism projects there is usually a requirement for a fast turnaround of the images, the need for objective and accurate representation of the situation and the provision of some narrative describing the story.

HDR Photography
For interior and corporate photography there used to be a need for a fairly complex lighting set up required to capture the final image. By using HDR techniques there is now no need for this large requirement on lighting equipment. HDR photography is essentially the capture of multiple images at different exposures to capture all the light values or dynamic range in the scene then combining these into one final image. This essentially makes a final image that is close to what our eyes actually see with no blown out highlights and no loss of detail in the shadows. This technique is particularly effective for photographing interiors of houses and offices or in some industrial situations and can be done a lot faster and easier than traditional setups with a large array of lighting.

Panoramic Photography
Sometimes you just can't capture all of the scene you are trying to photograph even by using a wide angle lens so panoramic photography is a technique where you can take multiple photographs covering the whole scene, both horizontally and vertically, then combining these into one final large, composite image. This requires some complex software techniques to provide seamless stitching of the images and preserving the geometry and exposure values across the whole scene. The results however can be very impressive, whether capturing a large landscape, interior of an office or building or an expansive industrial complex.

Final product Delivery
High resolution final images can be provided on CD or DVD with smaller low to medium resolution versions made available initially via e-mail. High quality prints can be ordered via my website but can be arranged to be printed locally if required. Multimedia slideshows, videos, DVDs or printed books of collated images can also be provided as to your specifications and design.

Our small party of 4 did a 4 day golf tour, 1 day at Thai Country Club in Bangkok, then 3 days in Hua Hin covering Imperial Lakeview Resort, Banyan and Black Mountain.
