In my continuing series of photos for Backpacker’s Concierge I took two trips down to Aswan. The first shoot was called off because a sandstorm turned everything white and ruined the idealic blue sky. The second trip went off without a hitch and I photographed in all of the major sites such as Karnak Temple and Kalabsha Temple, but the nice thing is that we had time built in to simply roam the back alleys and capture a bit of daily life.
For commercial jobs roaming around like this is always stressful, surprisingly similar to searching for a feature photo on a deadline for a newspaper.
When my ADSL line is installed in a few days you’ll be able to see my full take of Aswan tourism photos here.
