Hiking Stromboli

Published September 28th, 2013

A sunset hike on one of Italy's 3 active volcanoes, Stromboli ranks as a highlight for activities while exploring the Aeolian Islands in Sicily. The near midnight descent by moonlight is equally magical but be prepared to kick up clouds and clouds of volcanic dust while wading down 2 feet deep black sand on your return! The sight of Stromboli belching fountains of orange sparks, lava and flame into the twilight sky and majestic 360 degree views of the Island make it all worthwhile.

The Doors of Stone Town

Published December 7th, 2012

As with most Arabic towns, doorways and doorways are invariably a striking feature, if they weathered and beaten or intricate, looked-after and polished it can make for a wonderful subject to photograph. My only regret when visiting Stone Town was not shooting during magic hour.

A place for a rest

Published February 26th, 2012

Exploring what is arguably the best part of Koh Samui: Bhoput village. We entered this quaint backpackers/coffee/refreshments shop. I cant for the life of me remember the name but it's seating area on a small little balcony was directly overlooking the beach. It was also most charmingly painted and decorated. I remember having some fantastic fresh orange juice here and shooting some images. Here's a little photo essay of our 1/2 hour pit stop.

Downtime in Koh Lanta

Koh Phi Phi - A spoiled but still beautiful par...

Published February 12th, 2012

Koh Phi Phi, the jaw-droppingly exquisite rock made famous for the Danny Boyle movie, "The Beach" is invariably on most most traveller's Bucket Lists when visiting Thailand. It was with a fair degree of trepidation that we decided to take a day out from the lovely low key Koh Lanta to tick another proverbial destination checkbox. Tales of its overexposure had long been in overdrive amongst travellers of SE Asia.

A conversation with our French hotel manager in Koh Lanta when enquiring if it's worth a day trip went to the following tune:

Us: "So, we'll know it'll be touristy - but still worth seeing?"

Him: "Emmm, Loook it's bi-utifol but many tourists, very commercial. But Bi-uti-fol."

Us: "Err okaaay..thanks. We'll probably go tomorrow"

Him: "Emmm..When's Easter? Tomorrow? Good luck."

So, "Bi-utifol" - yes. Over-crowded, over-populated with greasy backpackers and over-tour-err-operated. Too many speedboats and it's bays splattered with too many splashing noisy snorkelers.

The floating village - part i

Published January 22nd, 2012

Last April we travelled to Thailand and managed to sneak in several days in Cambodia before travelling to the Islands. The well trodden tourist trail in Siem Reap to the various temples in the Angkor Wat National Park was an overcrowded yet educational travel experience. As overcrowded as the temples are there still are a handful of photographic opportunities. On our second day we visited the floating village called Chong Khneas which resides on the Tonle Sap river. Extremely poor; divided between Vietnamese immigrants seeking a "better" life and native Cambodians - I found it both a humbling and eye opening travel experience. Great picture opportunities of this bizarre village are abound, especially as your ferry practically scrapes through huts bobbing on the murky waters where idle mean smoke on their verandas or children play games on the floor of their floating huts.

Mini Series : People in Windows & Balcony

Published August 14th, 2011

Another ongoing series of mine that I've been building up extremely slowly over 5 years or so. Literally, I look up and if I see some folks in a window or balcony I smile, gesture towards my camera and try and capture the scene. Below are are several pictures of complete strangers over the years doing just that.

Mini Series : Doors

Published August 7th, 2011

There are many common themes and subjects I'm always on the lookout to photograph. Whether I'm exploring a village somewhere in the Cuban countryside or strolling in a side street 10 minutes from where I live in London, I'll always be hunting for photographs to add to these small personal projects.

I love shooting crumbling buildings, complete with pealing paint and cracked walls - the textures and tones can often translate beautifully in a photo. Doors and entrances are another subject I love shooting especially those that have texture, patterns and striking colours. After a trip to Marrakech in January earlier this year I managed to augment my collection quite considerably.

Below are a selection of doors and entrances from Morocco and other places I've visited.
