Claire Deacon, the photographer behind 7-olives has been based in Bangkok since 2003, documenting life in Asia through photography as well as incorporating it into both her work and her voluntary commitment to animal welfare. Claire can often be seen, camera in hand, taking photographs of the many cats and dogs that have come from the streets of Thailand.
I’ve always loved photography and, in particular, photographing people, animals and the natural world. Lessons learned on my first manual SLR, so different from today’s fully automated cameras, brought first hand understanding of how light and the camera work. Messing about in the dark room with my Dad as a youngster and understanding the processes behind making an image, provided a natural framework for my photography and I was rarely seen without a camera in hand. With a studio in Bangkok and the flexibility to travel to onsite locations, I would be delighted to discuss your photography needs with you.
