A few weeks back before being locked-down again in Bangkok I photographed Chartsiri Sophonpanich, President and Chairman of Bangkok Bank for this months Forbes Asia magazine cover story. His grandfather co-founded the bank from a small shophouse in Bangkok’s Chinatown and it grew to what it is today.

A true gentleman and a pleasure to photograph but not the best time keeper. A portrait shoot I had with him last year for Bloomberg had resulted in me getting 5 minutes because of his late arrival.

The shoot was scheduled at 3pm and I was told I had 45 minutes before he had to rush off for another meeting at 4pm. Having set-up since late morning I had 3 locations that Forbes wanted me to get him in. He arrived at 3.45pm and terrified I would only get 5 minutes I asked him very kindly (more of a beg) for more time. Being a kind and gracious man and genuinely sorry for being late he allowed me to photograph him at all 3 set-ups before he left, late for his next meeting.
