Photographing the Inca Trail: 4 Days. 2 Summits over 13,000 Feet. Some Fog & a Wonder of the New World

I just remember nodding aggressively when Rebecca and Cliff at Intrepid floated the idea: photographing the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. I had no idea what was in store, how far we would be hiking in thin air, or the Peruvian weather in March. Didn't matter. I was going to photograph Machu Picchu, something I've … Continue reading Photographing the Inca Trail: 4 Days. 2 Summits over 13,000 Feet. Some Fog & a Wonder of the New World

JUNO AWARDS 2019: Behind the Scenes Photos on the Red Carpet + Show

Third time's the charm photographing the JUNO Awards. I pine for this opportunity to be an official JUNOs photographer, capturing not just the awards show, but the full weekend of events from the JUNO Express Train to the JUNO Fest shows every night.

Hunting Waterfalls and Shooting Long Exposures in Iceland

I did the Golden Circle tour with my mates at Intrepid Travel (you can see my pics on the website). We started out in the capital of Reykavik before venturing out to the Golden Circle—Thingevellir National Park, Strokkur Geysir, Gullfoss Waterfall. From there we hit the breathtaking Skógafoss waterfall and onto a definite trip highlight at the glacier lagoon of Jökulsárlón.

Camping Adventure Across South Africa: From the Wild Coast to Cape Town

Driving across South Africa is recommended. The coastal country has so much to offer. This past March, a dozen world travelers and I drove across South Africa's Garden Route from Durban to the country of Lesotho to the Wild Coast to the wineries to Cape Town in our trusty Intrepid super vehicle, we camped along the way.

The Power of Creative Collectives: (Printed in Applied Arts magazine)

Back in 1976, on a stoop in Staten Island’s projects, a collaboration was born between two eight-year-old cousins. With breakdancing and freestyling finding its footing in New York City, the group grew by adding varied musical artists and friends. Selling marijuana on the side, they would produce their work in dark basements, nightly. Fast forward … Continue reading The Power of Creative Collectives: (Printed in Applied Arts magazine)

Inside Cambodia: A Photo Adventure From Angkor Wat to the Countryside

There was so much to see from crowded tuk-tuk rides in the Phnom Penh to the crystal clear beaches of Sihanoukville to the tourist go-to and exploring Angkor Wat at sunrise. That was unbelievable. Then there was the lush countryside with warm locals and hidden waterfalls. Cambodia has it all.

Paradise Found: 42 of My Favourite Photos from Thailand’s “Holy-Shit!” Beaches

This is Krabi, Thailand. Well, it's a snipped of the countless paradise islands like Phi Phi Island, Hong Bay, Ko Phi Don and others, popularized in the late '90s with millennials via Alex Garland's terrific The Beach, starring one Leo DiCaprio. It's now a hotbed for the world's gap-year students seeking an adventure in a teal-coloured ocean. I don't blame them. It doesn't get much more beautiful than this.
