If I’m being completely honest, Paris was not my first choice for a vacation destination in February. We were headed to Mallorca to meet with my in-laws for a week, and it was cheaper to fly to Paris and then to Spain, so we decided to spend a few days in the French capital. I […]

Por las Calles del Viejo San Juan (Through the Streets of Old San Juan) on Fuji Superia X-TRA 400
If someone offered me an airline ticket anywhere in the world to photograph a city, I’d have to pick Old San Juan in Puerto Rico. I lived in this special place for three years (from 2013 – 2016) and it continues to captivate me. While living there, I mainly shot with my digital cameras, but […]
Croatian views and colour tones on a Hasselblad 500C/M and Kodak Portra 160
No matter where I’m heading travel-wise, I always make a point of doing some sort of online recce before I depart. I think It gives you a visual understanding of the geographic layout and nature of the country you’re heading to and Croatia wasn’t a country I’d travelled to before. This online point of reference […]
The East African Savannah on medium format film: Twice the weight for black and white? Any time.
I hate travelling light. Truth be told, I always surprise myself with the amount of gear I consider necessary on a trip. That’s better. You see, I always have a perfectly good explanation for every piece of gear I carry. As you might expect, this is largely focused on being prepared for any situation, thousands […]
Travelogue: People of Myanmar, the Kayan and Kayah…
The Kayen and the Kayah. Two groups of people who live in the south-east of Myanmar, formally known as Burma. Living in the rich mountainous landscapes full of teak and minerals, together with many other subgroups they are named the Karenni… It feels like time has stood still in this part of the world. A […]
Travelogue: A Glimpse of Helsinki
Call me old-fashioned but I appreciate looking at a body of work in exhibitions or in traditional coffee table books. I like the way images and texts are presented in a context. When I shot a series of photos of Helsinki I was looking for a suitable format to present them. I decided to publish […]
Four years and counting: Un Giro D’Italia – touring Italy or, a never-ending project
Like all good projects, this one began without me even realising it. I didn’t intend for this to become such a long term thing, in fact, I originally hadn’t even intended to make anything in particular at all. What started off as a solo holiday around Italy with a couple of cameras, a flight into […]
Packing light for the Congo: Two countries, one river, eight film stocks
My travel assignments require me to create strong imagery that can be quickly and seamlessly integrated into a digital workflow, which is why my primary work camera is almost always a digital body. While I love the consistently excellent results that I have been able to get with digital cameras, I have missed the beautiful […]
Travelling with film: My Sri Lankan travelogue
I suspect it’s a common dilemma, you’ve booked a holiday with your partner (and or family/friends) and there’s no doubt the destination was influenced by potential photographic opportunities. How on earth are you going to balance wanting to take lots of photos with what other people want to do?!
Travelogue: Walking through Europe captured on film Prague to Lugoj
To take you on this journey, I’m sharing with you my contact sheets and pulling out a few of the finished photographs from each.
Travelogue: Following in Vivian Maier’s footsteps, my trip to Chicago
Traditionally when I go away on holiday, I tend to pick the less touristy places. That way I can get a better feel for a country and its people.
Holgas in the Himalayas
I continue to carry film cameras long after the world has gone digital. We had a darkroom when I was growing up and I learned to develop film and print photos when I was about 10.
Traveling with film, shooting in Rajasthan
Travelling to unknown places makes you feel alive. Experiencing new things in a new environment makes your heart pumping.
Nothing to lose… My Indian road trip
“I have nothing to lose.” This was what I thought to myself before clicking on the button that subsequently led me on a solo trip to Delhi and North India in July 2018.
2018 started off slow.
Mumbai Part 5: a permanent change of station
MEXICO — The monsoon rains had been slow in coming. The heat built and there were clouds in the white-hot sky but the rains did not come. People died in their houses and in the streets.

Welcome to part two of my 2017 travelogue retrospective. In part one, I promised I’d be back with photos from Denmark, Switzerland, Spain, Vietnam and maybe more.
Travelogue: Hong Kong
I am a huge fan of EMULSIVE.org. I spend a lot of time reading and sifting through it. It’s one of my favorite websites for film photography. I travel a lot and I even download pages when I am traveling

My parents split up when I was a little kid and ever since, we would go on vacation twice as…
