World Travel Market London 2022 photo tour
10th November 2022

World Travel Market London just closed the door on its 43rd edition. It is one of the most significant events in the Travel industry, and it is always stimulating to wander around and talk with travel professionals. There are tour operators, national and local tourism boards, tech companies, etc., all under one roof for 3 days of talks, networking and fun. The last time I visited the World Travel Market was pre-pandemic....

Street Photography in Istanbul | Photographing the world Episode 1 Youtube
21st September 2022

The new “Photographing The World” Series starts here, and we kick off with Street Photography in Istanbul! This video was long due, but I came back from Istanbul with 6+ hours of footage and almost 1Tb of photos… All over the place. I was to give you a full-length docu-vlog of about 20-25 minutes. But then I thought a small pill format would have been much more palatable (pun intended). So here...

Hoya Sparkle filters used at night in London
7th March 2022

Have you ever heard of the HOYA Sparkle filters before? Me neither. But it looks like this is about to change as Hoya is investing more in marketing to push these. Since I moved to my new studio, quite a few agencies have approached me, offering collaborations. Among them is the professional video, photo and broadcast supplier Holdan who distributes Hoya, as well as Samyang and others. I already use some Hoya...

Day to night walk in London street photography Fujifilm low light sunset
14th December 2021

Welcome back to another cinematic vlog in the streets, this time for a day to night walk in London. Aside of going out for photography, to me walking is kind of a therapeutical exercise: whenever I feel down or lacking inspiration I just hit the streets. It clears my mind. And if I'm looking for inspiration this clicks briefly after I start taking photos...

London Street Photography in harsh light
24th June 2020

You read it right: my Photography workshops are back. The lockdown measures are easing in the UK. And what the government just announced is finally allowing me to restart hosting my Photography workshops. Shops are reopening, the safe distance is reduced to “1 metre plus”, and we can have gatherings of up to 6 people… We’re getting there. I’m not travelling yet, even though I desperately want to. Therefore my engagements are...

Jökulsárlón
24th May 2020

Back with a Story Behind The Shot with Jökulsárlón, and also back in time. I shot this some years ago in a touristless Iceland, with a then-brand-new iPhone 6 Plus. That’s right, no fancy camera, just what was always in my pocket. The Story Behind The Shot is a column I regularly send to all the newsletter subscribers. It might soon become exclusive email content. So if you don’t want to miss...

Prints for Sale - Haleakala volcano
19th April 2020

Today’s Story Behind The Shot at Haleakalā is about one of my absolute favourite photos.. After quitting my Creative Director job, I travelled around the world. In one instance, I literally travelled full circle moving East (and that’s when I started this blog). It was a trip that gifted me with many experiences, memories and friendships. To start, it was my first time visiting East Asia, and getting in touch with a...

Georgia
5th April 2020

I missed last week’s appointment. With all that is happening in the world right now, I thought you all had better to do than read my stories. But some of you reached out asking about the newsletter, and it seems that light content like this can provide some relief. I’m glad. So here it is. Peer support group on Slack First of all, one important update. I started a peer support group...

Coronavirus Covid London lockdown: Trafalgar Square
1st April 2020

Today, the London lockdown is still not as strict as in other cities around the world, but it is a lockdown nonetheless. The measures to fight coronavirus have imposed restrictions on travel, both internally and between countries. And therefore, many places now look like scenes from an apocalyptic Hollywood film. Particularly in those areas where flocks of tourists usually cram every empty corner, the view is very much on the eerie side....

London New Year fireworks
1st January 2020

Last night was the first time I went out to photograph London’s New Year fireworks. In previous years, either I was not even in London, or I decided to enjoy a better view and not wait in the cold from the comfort of my sofa. But not last night. I teamed with my friend Martyn to go out and scout for a place South of London. The main idea was to find...

Christmas Gifts
11th December 2019

You didn’t really think you would not find a Christmas gifts list here, did you?Of course, I had to make one! I put together a list of a few items I own (or I have at least tried) and recommend. Maybe you saw my Black Friday list, where I didn’t go on trying to sell you just anything. So, if you trust me a little bit you know this is good stuff...

Jerusalem light
21st September 2019

While in Tel Aviv for the OFFF event and my workshop, I decided to go capture the Jerusalem light again. When I went last year, I explored the holy city to find good Landscape and Travel Photography opportunities. This year, I went with my friend Chris to photograph life in the old town’s narrow alleys. We had some restrictions, but nothing major. First, you can’t access the Muslim side on Fridays and...

warm sunset over West London
21st June 2019

I often get my best results when I follow my gut feelings rather than plan for something. This story is a good testament to that. Since I returned from beautiful Georgia (more on that in a future post), the weather in London has been pretty grim and depressing. It rained almost every day, and it was generally cold and grey most of the time. This day was no exception. And frankly, there...
