During a recent holiday in Thailand we found the Happy Snapper Bar which was a great music venue in Khao Lak. There we saw Koy Ya performing. She had long orange hair, tattoos and wore a short tartan mini skirt and black crochet crop top. Jo decided to ask her if she wanted to do a photo shoot with me. Koy Ya said yes and we set one up. I had no studio equipment with me so we worked with the light from the bar and some pretty pathetic illumination from a couple of smart phones. With the pool table in the bar there was a photo I wanted to try. This is the result (after a little bit of tinkering on the computer) and on Monday it won “Action” photo of the year at Southampton Camera club. I really liked this photo but when you are so closely involved in the setting up and production of something like this you have a lot of emotion attached to it which can affect your judgement so it’s great when you find other people like it too.
Thank you Koy Ya.
Here are a few more photos from the shoot. If you like your music and you are ever in Khao Lak be sure to find Koy Ya and The Happy Snapper Bar. You will love it.
