This portfolio consists of images from events throughout the ASEAN region.

For eight years I was European Pressphoto Agency chief photographer for Vietnam, and covered a wide range of high profile events, including multiple APEC, ASEAN and ASEM leadership summits.

This experience with professional event coverage has given me a good understanding of the protocols and systems that photographers have to respect and work with, as well as the ability to deliver images to clients under challenging circumstances and tight deadlines.

Some of the leaders featured in this portfolio:

US President Barak Obama
US President George W Bush
US President Bill Clinton
Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej
Queen Sofia of Spain
UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan
ADB President Haruhiko Kuroda
