Duomo di Firenze, Florence Duomo
16th September 2021

With all the content I produced on my trip to Florence, a proper tribute to the indisputable hero of its skyline, the Duomo di Firenze, had to be made! And here I'm doing what no Florentine has ever done before. All 1000+ steps of the Florence Duomo in one day! To give you beautiful 360° views of Florence from above :) As you know, I've had the opportunity to test Fujifilm's new...

London Street Photography in harsh light - in my bite-sized workshops
24th June 2020

You read it right: my Photography workshops are back. The lockdown measures are easing in the UK. This 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 limited to London for now....

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 newsletter subscribers. It is now exclusive email content, no more sharing on this blog. So, if you...

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 up with my friend Martyn to scout a place South of London. The main idea was to find an elevated viewpoint...

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...

The Gatwick Fiasco
22nd December 2018

The Gatwick Fiasco. Or how the second largest and busiest airport in the UK couldn't handle a drone alert and ruined the Christmas plans of 150.000 people. Including me. I'm sure you all heard what happened a few days ago. Alerts of drones flying near the airport runway caused a shutdown of all operations. Every flight on Wednesday got cancelled. Then, on Thursday, it happened again when I arrived at the airport....

natural disasters
28th September 2018

I know, natural disasters don't sound like the most appealing title. But I felt the need to write down this post… September can be a rough month to travel anywhere near the Pacific. But honestly, it looked like my plan was set up by some weird travel agency with an odd sense of humour. Asia The day before my departure, the deadly storm Jebi hit Japan pretty badly, leaving the airport of...
