Time has done a good job of putting most of its covers pictures on their website (great history travel)… And I found out 2. What only 2, I had 3… But the missing one was just an international cover (August 23, 1982) covering the war in Lebanon (see below)
This is the first published picture of the movie that we wrapped just before last Christmas.
And it was not an easy fate to grab the attention of the cast (Owen Wilson/Pierce Brosnan/Lake Belle) with the Director and the Producers at 2:00 AM on a rooftop in Chiang Mai for a PR photo-op… in the midst of the shooting of a ‘bloody’ escape scene!
On the shooting of the movies THE COUP in Chiang Mai and area since beginning of November, schedule to finish just before Christmas… This prompt the purchase of a new sound-blimp from Aquatech to fit my Nikon D800. Main cast includes Owen Wilson and Pierce Brosnan.

There will always be movies being made in Thailand… and once in a while it’s giving me an opportunity to renew with the long work days and amaze me at how good the local crews are! Part of this ongoing shoot for this 15-years long running French TF1 movie series was a little trip up to Chiang Mai, at Mae Tamarn. Just a few pictures at the elephant camp (no film pictures of course!).
To make a point as I see one of my certainly famous image adorning a Facebook page on the old Oliver Stone blockbuster, Platoon. The movie on which I was probably lucky to get a small assignment was shot in the Philippines in 1986… It was also nice of Oliver to let me work beyond my assignment on his film, but I believe then that he was doing a great film. Eventually that particular image (for which I have to total copyright) end up on the cover of Time Magazine just ahead of the film getting Oscars in Hollywood. The rest is history!
