Angkor Wat has always been high on most travel photographer’s list. Located in Cambodia and built in the 12th century as a funerary Temple for Suryavaraman II; Angkor Wat has over 1 km of spectacular carvings and a vast labyrinth of passages, courtyards and the five lotus flower towers at its centre. Together with Bike Beyond […]

Sometimes, the simplest techniques can create a big impact and improve the images you take. For example, when shooting against the sun or bright street lights, instead of having a boring white blob of light, you can tweak your settings a little bit and achieve ‘starbursts’ to add more impact. Starbursts are those little twinkly […]

As a photographer (and a geeky guy in general), I like to stay up-to-date with my equipment, and sometimes, buy the latest gadgets available to improve my craft and facilitate my job. I recently did the jump to full-frame with the purchase of a Canon 6D, and got myself a new graphics tablet and upgraded […]

 (Edit: This post was supposed to go live on the last day of 2013, but Bluehost decided to go down on NYE and my website wasn’t accessible.) I don’t know about you but, for me, 2013 was a fantastic year. So many big changes happened in our life and, maybe for the first time since I’ve […]

There’s something about cathedrals that make you just stand there in awe, dwarfed by the stunning architecture full of details. Those gigantic structures, often overlooking the city, have been built over centuries by thousands of men who had none of today’s tools. It was one thing that I really missed when living in Asia. After […]

  The last rays over the Alhambra, as the sun sets behind the distant mountains around the beautiful city of Granada in the South of Spain. I think this might be my new favorite spot in town. I might not have a cool balcony view like I had in Chiang Mai, but this one beats […]

Maintaining a portfolio website is a lot of work. Keeping track of your backups is a lot of work. Trying to sell prints is also a lot of work. Combining all three together? Much better! Especially when all the tools are provided to make it easier and manageable. Those of you who read me regularly […]

In 2 weeks, we’ll be celebrating our 6 months in our new home after leaving Thailand: Granada, Spain. I have to admit I didn’t spend much time exploring different neighborhoods of the city or even the surrounding areas, but so far, I absolutely love it here and I can see ourselves spending our life in […]

Ever since I left Thailand in April to settle in Granada in southern Spain, new projects and opportunities have popped up frequently. It feels like being in Europe just put me back on the radar compared to Asia. And for that, I am very grateful. I haven’t talked much in detail about what’s coming next […]

Let’s face it. Hardware failure does happen, and not just to other people. I’ve had 2 hard drives die on me in the past and a third one is acting a little weird lately. The beauty of digital photography is that you don’t need a dedicated storage room to put away all your archives and […]

Last year, the good folks at TravelSupermarket.com hosted a photoblogging contest about “capturing color” in travel photos. The contest turned out to be quite popular with more than 3000 great images submitted by many participants, bloggers or not (you can view some of them over at the World Photography Map). A year later, they’re at […]

A histogram: you might have heard of this weird nerdy word thrown in by photographers. While it might sound like a shady social media platform, it’s an essential tool to learn and master if you want to have full control on your images. Picture this: It’s summer and you are taking outdoor photos under the […]

The Plaza de Isabel la Católica is a small square located at the intersection of the Calle Reyes Católicos and the Gran Via de Colón Avenue in the beautiful city of Granada, in Spain. The square contains a monument built in 1892, and dedicated to Queen Isabel and Columbus, who are featured at the time […]

One good habit to have as a photographer is to go back in your archives and check out some of your older work from time to time. Since photography is a continuous learning process, we come up with new ideas, new visions and new techniques on how to edit images, and we can apply it […]

Never have I jumped out of a van so fast, camera in hand, and ran through a muddy field to capture this beautiful old olive tree, as the last sun rays were bathing it in a warm golden light. These trees, located near Brindisi in Italy, are about 500 years old. To put things into […]

As some of you may know, a few weeks ago, I was invited to visit and explore the city of Brindisi, located in the region of Puglia (the heel of the boot), in Italy. Brindisi, located off the coast of the Adriatic sea, is a city of roughly 90,000 people. Due to its location, it […]

I’ve lived in Europe and visited some parts quite a lot, but I never managed to set foot in Italy during my travels. I’ve been to Spain (and live here now), lived in France, visited many northern countries like Germany, Denmark, Ireland and even Iceland, but never Italy. Don’t ask why, I have no idea. […]

If you’ve ever been wondering what happened in the past few weeks, here’s the answer: My wife and I have finally moved and settled in our new city: Granada, Spain. We left Chiang Mai after 3 years and spent a month in Abu Dhabi in the UAE to do our research and catch up with […]

It’s been a while since I last posted here so I just wanted to update about my whereabouts and new adventures. For those of you who don’t know yet, after living 3 years in Chiang Mai in Thailand, my wife and I have decided to move on and try a different place to settle. This […]

Today is the 1st of March, which means that in 30 days, we’ll be jumping in a plane and leaving Chiang Mai, the place we’ve been calling home for the past 3 years in Thailand. It’s going to be a sad departure but we’re looking forward to moving to our new chosen city: Granada, Spain. […]

A couple of days ago, I shared this photo I took last Fall in Kentucky. It’s an old barn located near Rough River lake with hanging tobacco waiting to be fire cured. The photo was well received but I had a few comments from people telling me “It’s HDR”. Now, on the one hand, I […]

Someone recently asked me: “2012 is over, where’s your retrospective post?” Well.. I’ve already been so busy with all of 2013′s new projects that I’ve been rushing forward at full speed. I guess it’s a good thing to just stop for a moment and look back at what happened in the past year. 2012 was […]

Just a little message to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays for those who don’t celebrate it. Hope you enjoyed the festivities with friends and families. I am currently on holiday in China so Internet is spotty and not every website is available. I’ll be back to Chiang Mai before New […]
