It was then during my 5 ½ years working in Singapore that I started to get involved in documenting food through cameras. At the Grand Hyatt in Singapore, seldom a week past without having a photographer in our kitchens taking pictures for magazines and general media. It was during this time that I really started to get involved and addicted in food photography. First I purchased a professional camera, followed by a proper lighting set up and before I really knew what I was doing I was taking photos for the hotel which then where used within the hotel to promote our various food outlets.
Several years later in Bali I meet by sheer coincidence a publisher which looked at my shots and thought that the photos where good enough for a book publication. Barely one year later the first book on the cuisine of Bali was published for which I also wrote the recipes. 20 years later I still love to take pictures of food and at the same time it makes me very proud that I was able to write and photograph 10 cookbooks on the cuisine of Bali and Indonesia. Two more books followed on Images of Bali and Indonesia.
