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...

Fujifilm GFX 50S II hands-on review
4th September 2021

Now that we’ve been through the first impressions, it’s time for a proper Fujifilm GFX 50S II hands-on review. I just started to edit and put together all the GFX 50S II content I created. And it becomes obvious to me that this will become a series because there is a lot of content! So, episode 1 was the first impressions video. Episode 2 is this Fujifilm GFX 50S II hands-on review....

One Minute Message
29th April 2021

I just received my first dose of Covid vaccine! Some people have strong opinions against vaccines… Personally, I don’t understand the fuss based on a fake reseaarch, but I do respect every opinion. But to me, this is a big deal! And it can be for the future of my channel as well! You see: my photography used to take me abroad for the majority of my time, travelling around the world...

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 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...

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
12th March 2020

When I wrote my post about what to expect from me in 2020, coronavirus (Covid-19) had not yet made the news front pages. In these past few days, I took some time to reflect on the situation. On what it means for my business. This is still a work in progress, but some decisions are to be made. Since I began this journey as a professional photographer, travel has always been the...

2020
27th December 2019

So, what can you expect from me in 2020? If you follow me on Instagram (like you should, @fabienb) you may have noticed how I’ve gone quiet in December. This is often the case for me. This is the month I look back at all that happened during the year and then prepare for the new one. This time is also the start of the new decade. How exciting! With the Xmas...

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...
