Brand New Day in LA

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/8, 1/480 sec, ISO200) The sky is cloudless and blue, there are palm trees everywhere and the car beside my is a Dodge Challenger in bright yellow. Life is good! We are finally in the USA again. This time we are in the South...

Portugal lost locations

Each year I set off on road trips in search of lost locations. Recently I have been to Morocco and now Portugal. When I find enough decent locations to shoot I return home and set about planning the perfect workshop. I love to share my...

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/8, 1/200 sec, ISO320) Pier 39 is a famous tourist spot. There is even a Hard Rock Cafe which is always a sign that you are at the very centre of tourism. There is nothing wrong with that of course. Tourist spots are popular...
