Be­hind the Scenes

The team share mem­o­rable mo­ments and their favourite things about work­ing at Crave.

Crave - - FOOD FOR THOUGHT - Sa­man­tha Sin Pho­tog­ra­phy di­rec­tor Since the very be­gin­ning…

As Crave has evolved and so­lid­i­fied its iden­tity, so has my style of pho­tog­ra­phy, and cre­ative di­rec­tor Es­ther Chan has had a lot of in­flu­ence on both. For me, the most un­for­get­table photo shoot was at Yi O, on Lan­tau, for the “Wild About Rice” is­sue (Oc­to­ber 2017). We trekked along rough paths lug­ging heavy equip­ment in the pour­ing rain. Cold, wet and des­per­ate, we hopped on the back of a small truck rush­ing to catch the last ferry back. Luck­ily, we made it! But my favourite photo shoot has to be at Tai O, also on Lan­tau (Is­sue 82, April 2017). It was my first time in Tai O and ev­ery­thing turned out per­fectly: the team, the pho­tos, the food… and the shop­ping.

How­ever, what I love most about Crave is the peo­ple. Crave is a sim­ple and straight­for­ward work­place with gen­uine peo­ple. This en­vi­ron­ment has kept me feel­ing young. It’s al­ways fun hang­ing out with the Crave fam­ily (karaoke!). Last but not least, a big thank you to our pub­lisher Car­men, who al­ways sup­ports and trusts us, and has given me a beau­ti­ful stage to show­case my work to read­ers.
