Social Photography Outing – Abandoned Train Station

I went to another of Lulalearn’s photography events. This is great way to meet new people who are passionate about photography. This event was hosted by Kafai Mak, check out more events here: Lulalearn.com This time we went to an abandoned S-Bahn station in Munich. Some cool scenes. Most shots taken with a Canon 5D Mark III and Zeiss 18mm 2.8 Milvus or 12mm…

Social Photography Outing – Portrait Session

I recently joined a cool photography event on Meetup.com. We were a group of around 10 people who met in the heart of Munich for a lesson in portrait photography, hosted by Kafai Mak. After we gave a quick introduction to each other, we were off taking photos in small groups. It was a nice day, and a good way to meet other photographers….

Polar Nights – A taste of Lofoten

Who would be mad enough to head to Lofoten for New Years Eve? A place where there is twilight for just 2-3 hours per day? MEEE! I thought it would be great fun to see Lofoten in winter, but this is no trip for the faint hearted. I intended to hire a car and roam around seeing the area, camping in my tent at…

Costa Rica

As I write this, it is already late January 2020. This trip I am about to tell you about was already in September 2019.. Quite some lag time there… At least I have a good excuse. 2019 was a very challenging year for me personally. Just a good month before this trip to Costa Rica my relationship ultimately came to an end. That time…

My First Wedding Shoot (Nearly)

Hi everybody! Today I’m posting photos of the scariest thing to photograph… ever. Yes, its a wedding! Most will know that my style of photography is mostly from the hip – travel photography. Personally I think wedding photography is the most difficult subject, it has to be artistic, technically perfect, you must catch every moment, deal with light, and all while not forgetting the…

Botanical Garden Munich-Nymphenburg – Part II

So if you enjoyed the first post on the awesome Munich-Nymphenburg Gardens then you are in for a treat, because here is part two! I ended up revisiting this place with a friend, and got a few more keepers! I soon realized that the gardens looked totally different than on my initial visit – the power of nature. I won’t repeat what has been…

Botanical Garden Munich-Nymphenburg

I have always loved botanical gardens. I spent a lot of time in my early photography days taking photos in city gardens. I remember well the botanical gardens in Brisbane were I really first got into photography. I even had a small photography club at that time. Funnily enough it took quite a while before I first visited the Botanical Garden of Munich-Nymphenburg –…

Lots of Black, Lots of White and some Blue – Iceland in Winter

I have been dreaming of seeing Iceland for many years. However, living in Australia did not make it easy to reach. I was always drawn by the epic landscapes, its northern location and the crazy weather. Today, Iceland is a tourist Mecca, but it wasn’t always so. Iceland used to be very poor, and struggled to develop. Some of that final frontier feel remains,…

Summer dash to London

Having started a new job, I didn’t really want to take too much time off at once – not that I could anyways in my position :(. Anyways, we ended up with two 9 day trips this year, one to the Seychelles (photos coming) and one to the UK. It was great to go to England, felt so familiar somehow to me. I haven’t…

Moon Eclipse July 2018

Being in Bavaria has many benefits, but on this occasion it was a good opportunity to see the Blood Moon, or full Moon Eclipse in July 2018. I headed for a nearby hill top, and this is the result! Mars was clearly visible and was a joy to look at. Happy Shooting!
